Andre Johnson has reportedly asked Houston for a trade, and though the Texans sound like they are not interested in moving the future Hall of Fame wide receiver right now, the suitors are already lining up.
For the first time in a long time, the Islanders might have some margin for error heading into a season.
Someone had to be the pioneer. Regardless if Jaroslav Halak knows it or not, his signing with the Islanders on Thursday was a really big deal.
Andre Johnson, even at 32, is still the real deal as far as NFL wide receivers go. Despite all they’ve done so far, the Jets still have a hole at the position. John Idzik should at least make a call.
Don’t look so down, Jack. You get to keep your job. You have basically been cleared of wrongdoing. Garth has rightly jumped on the grenade.
MSG Network play-by-play man Howie Rose will always be the ultimate professional, and won’t shy away from telling the viewers what he really thinks. Call him a homer at your own peril.
In a perfect world, the Jets would be equipping Geno Smith — and only Geno Smith — for the 2014 season. Only they aren’t, and I can’t say I blame them. But their plan at quarterback will end up being a wise decision.
It’s getting more and more difficult to convince anyone that perception of the Islanders is any different than their true reality.
Garth Snow is angry, and understandably so. But the words that came out of his mouth on Thursday regarding the shocking injury that ended John Tavares’ Olympics and, more importantly, his season with the Islanders, were misguided.
Apparently, teams will be lining up during free agency this summer to pay Andrew MacDonald $5 million per season. I say be my guest. The Islanders are very smart for not doing so.
The Islanders traded for Thomas Vanek because of one simple reason: They are not the Rangers. They cannot sit back and let name recognition sell the franchise. They need to roll the dice to take the next step.
Carlow East, an Irish pub on 85th Street and Lexington Avenue, has turned into the unofficial watering hole for Seahawks fans that have either relocated from the Pacific Northwest or been home grown right here in the Tri-State area.
Sooner or later, Garth Snow is going to have to make a decision, which likely will be the only decision he can make if things don’t change. Thomas Vanek is the only person who can alter that decision.
The Yankees have to be thrilled that they won’t have to deal with the distraction that would have come with Alex Rodriguez every waking second of next season. And, oh yeah, they just got an additional $25 million to play with, too.
The sports-centric saying “it’s getting late early” is a mantra the Islanders operate under, mostly because they always seem to put themselves in perilous situations early in seasons. That applies to the Thomas Vanek situation as well.
