Palladino: Franchise Tag Could Work Against Giants And JPP

Tagging Jason Pierre-Paul, which would deprive the impending free agent of seeking out more lucrative pastures, would not sit well with him at all. It might even hinder long-term negotiations.

Palladino: As Camp Nears, Yanks Have Major Question Marks In Rotation

In two weeks, pitchers and catchers will report with a starting five comprised of three legitimate injury risks, one young flamethrower in Eovaldi and an average swingman in Capuano.

Palladino: Sandy Alderson Really Dropped The Ball By Standing Pat

If his position players don’t reward his faith, Alderson could be looking at another long year and, quite possibly, a spot on the unemployment line. And this time, it’ll be his own fault.

Palladino: Satisfying Super Bowl Won’t Wash Away NFL’s Stains

Domestic violence. Concussions. Retired players suffering. None of it gets washed away by a thoroughly enjoyable title game. Goodell and the owners need to understand that first.

And then they must deal with it, preferably before the next Super Bowl.

Palladino: Jets Should Be Dreaming Of Cromartie-Revis Reunion

While the Patriots and Seahawks prepare to battle for the Lombardi Trophy Sunday in Glendale, Az., the Jets ponder how not how to win championships, but just to win.

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.
