Green Lantern: If Ivory Ends Up A Tin Man, Jets Will Be In Serious Trouble

Of all the so-called “stories” coming out of Jets training camp, the one that really needs to be addressed more is the health of one Chris Ivory.

Green Lantern: Jets’ Mornhinweg Better Not Hold Geno Back On Saturday

The last thing Jets fans need to see during the second preseason game is Geno Smith not have plays called that give him the opportunity to win this quarterback competition.

Green Lantern: Being Santonio Holmes, A Jet Dealing With Turbulence

For the Jets to exceed somewhat low expectations this season, they need Santonio Holmes to return and do what he does best — provide not just the requisite statistics, but more of his signature moments.

Green Lantern: Jets’ Running Game Will Be A Sum Of Many Unproven Parts

Chris Ivory will eventually be the guy for the Jets, but until he’s 100 percent Bilal Powell has a real opportunity to show he never should have been written off in the first place.

Green Lantern: What’s Sad Is, Rex Can’t Win No Matter What He Does

If you ever wonder why so many fans are continually rolling their eyes over the TMZ-ification of sports journalism, the latest reporting on Rex Ryan should speak volumes.

Green Lantern: If Jets Are Smart, They’ll Delay The Dawning Of Geno Era

For the vast majority of the past 40 years the Jets have gotten the quarterback position all wrong. That doesn’t have to be the case this time around.

Capellini: Islanders Are Building A Team To Last The Test Of Time

You may not be in love with what the Isles have done so far this offseason, but you have to give them credit for remaining disciplined. There has been something righteous about their approach.

Capellini: Islanders Employing Slow And Steady Wins The Race Approach

The Islanders have been active this offseason, but maybe not in the way you had hoped. Don’t sweat it. They are improved and could get better as the summer progresses.

Capellini: Islanders Need To Attack A Strong Goalie Market ASAP

Garth Snow was a goalie, one that experienced some success in the NHL. So he has to know the status quo will not be acceptable for his Islanders next season. If Evgeni Nabokov is the starter again, there will be hell to pay.

Green Lantern: Brilliant Belichick Just Did Jets A Serious Solid

Bill Belichick is thought of as the smartest coach in the NFL, and perhaps in all of sports. But with the announcement of his latest reclamation project, the mad scientist in him has morphed into the nutty professor.

Mark Streit

Capellini: Streit Did Islanders Right, But It Was Time For Him To Go

Mark Streit’s days on Long Island are basically over, but it’s by no means a death sentence for the Islanders. They just need to play their many cards in the right hand.

Capellini: Islanders Must Deviate From Formula And Get Aggressive This Summer

For the first time in ages the Islanders are not in rebuilding mode. They are in re-tooling mode. That’s an alien concept to many, but it’s the truth, and they need to act on it.

Capellini: Islanders Fans Have Every Reason To Dance, Chant And Sing

The Islanders are two wins away from turning the NHL on its ear. Their fans don’t care about what’s to come. They are just living in the moment — and who can blame them?

Capellini: Sorry Islanders, But The Best Actor In Black Always Wins Oscar

The Islanders have no choice but to stay out of the penalty box if they entertain any thoughts of winning this series. The problem is, they may not have a choice in the matter.
