Palladino: Scandal! Drama! Busy Super Bowl Week Offers Plenty For Everybody

We’ll get some football, too, as there’s a nice little confrontation brewing between New England quarterback Tom Brady and Seattle cornerback Richard Sherman.

Palladino: Bowles-Maccagnan Relationship Critical To Jets’ Success

The most encouraging thing that came out of Todd Bowles’ mouth this week had nothing to do with rings or toughness or locker room culture. And yet, it had everything to do with them.

Palladino: Is Bill Belichick A Cheater? Maybe, But He’s Also A Genius

The end result, an opportunity to take home another Lombardi Trophy, makes everything else worthwhile to the mad genius his victims call “Beli-Cheat.”

Palladino: Mets Are Doing The Right Thing By Sticking With Syndergaard

For a franchise in the wrong so many times over the last eight years, the Mets have picked the proper path in this one. Give them some credit.

Palladino: No Problem If Bowles And Jets Win Quietly

One place new Jets coach Todd Bowles won’t compare to Rex Ryan is at the podium. Doesn’t matter. Let the words of late Raiders owner Al Davis say it for him: “Just win, baby!”

Palladino: Jets’ Head Coaching Job Would Be A Comedown For Dan Quinn

Quinn must understand two things: MetLife Stadium is not CenturyLink Field. And any secondary he puts together here will never truly compare to the Legion of Boom.

Palladino: Allie Sherman Left A Very Complex Giants Legacy

Of all the coaches the Giants have hired over the last 55 years, none have approached the complex career of Allie Sherman, who died over the weekend at age 91.

Palladino: ‘Right Price’ Means Different Things For Giants’ JPP, Rolle

The right price could mean vastly different things for a 26-year-old pass rusher and a 32-year-old safety. It could be the difference between one staying and one going.

Palladino: Change In Philosophy — Jets Should Sign Marrone ASAP!

Forget about the preliminary list. Go sign Doug Marrone. Then give the former Bills coach whatever input necessary into the general manager hire.

Palladino: Personality, Mind And Experience Should Lead Jets To Gruden

He’s an offensive coach. He’s colorful enough, but not so outrageous that he’s going to create a constant media stir. And, oh, yeah, he’s already won the big hardware with Tampa Bay.

Palladino: Coughlin Seems Safe, But Some Changes Should Come To Giants

Replacing defensive coordinator Perry Fewell and special teams coach Tom Quinn might be a good start, or end for that matter.

Palladino: Talented Youngsters Have Giants’ Future Looking Bright

They have offered hope for 2015, either as starters or quality depth pieces. That’s a lot more than the Giants had coming out of training camp.

Palladino: Jets’ Geno Knows He’s Toast If Ryan Returns

Geno Smith is going his own way on the coaching issue, which just shows how divided against him the locker room remains.

Palladino: After Big Gamble, Yankees Need Eovaldi To Pay Off

The question is, can fireballer Nathan Eovaldi take the next step, a la Nolan Ryan? If he does, then Brian Cashman will look like a true genius.

Palladino: Pucker Up, Rexy — Time To Admit Belichick Won The War

The scoreboard Sunday may say that it is time, finally, for the Jets coach to admit his arch-rival truly got the better of him. If he didn’t kiss anything before, he might as well now. And we’re not talking about rings.
