Palladino: It’s Not Just Geno — Stupidity Runs Rampant In Jets’ Organization

Their only consolation will come in the recognition that their quarterback isn’t the only one guilty of dumb doings. There’s plenty of stupid to spread around the whole organization.

Palladino: Eli, Giants Leaving 2013 Disaster In Their Dust

In other years, it would have been just like Big Blue to lose this game against the banged-up Falcons. Not in 2014, though. Not on Sunday.

Palladino: Giants Could Have Next Great End-Zone Threat In Larry Donnell

Donnell, an inch taller than Plaxico Burress, could become New York’s next great end zone-target — a regular customer for the Eli Manning fade pass.

Palladino: If A-Rod Is Great He’ll Be Cheered Like Jeter, And That’s Sad

If A-Rod starts launching baseballs out of Yankee Stadium, he will be cheered just as loudly as Jeter was on his best days.

Palladino: Time For Jets To Suck It Up And Start Michael Vick

The calendar still says September, but already the Jets have put themselves into a critical time crunch. The playoffs are slipping away. Time to cash in on the insurance policy.

Palladino: Derek Jeter, First-Ballot Hall Of Famer? There’s No Argument

For the few who doubt Jeter deserves a place in baseball’s Olympus on a statistical basis, don’t use the stats. Use the eyes.

Palladino: Jets Are On A Madness-Inducing Path

Worse than anything, they’ll prove themselves strong enough to stay with good teams, but just bad enough to fall short. So near, and yet so far. And that’s the worst way to lose.

Palladino: Jennings Sparks Giants And Himself Vs. Texans

Rashad Jennings’ efforts to motivate his teammates Sunday worked wonders, especially for him. Now, the object is keeping the team together week after week.

Palladino: New Jeter Ad Offers Wistful Touch To Farewell

Thanks to the Gatorade ad, we have one, last, touching glimpse of the great shortstop before he bids baseball a final adieu.

Palladino: Yanks’ Impending Exit Makes Tanaka’s Return Irrelevant

Getting themselves eliminated in the AL East race Monday night was one thing. Turning the near future of Masahiro Tanaka irrelevant was quite another.

Palladino: Worst Week Could Prove NFL Bulletproof

Domestic violence, child abuse, health issues and a potential cover-up. There is enough to damage the NFL. What we’ll find out is exactly how much it can withstand.

Palladino: Wright Or Wrong? Mets Should Consider Tossing Captain Overboard

As far as anyone knows, Mets brass have yet to consider the possibility. But here it is, anyway. Unloading David Wright in the offseason, once unthinkable, might not be a bad idea.

Palladino: Sports Hypocrisy Will Resurrect Ray Rice

Justice found Ray Rice Monday. The hypocrisy of professional sports will eventually save him, for nobody is ever gone for long in the play-for-pay game.

Palladino: Week 1 Win Would Put Giants’ 2013 Start In Past

Let the Giants season begin. How it ends, nobody knows. But starting off with a win would bring a lot of peace to a lot of minds, not the least of which belongs to Tom Coughlin.

Palladino: If Yanks Don’t Cut Deficit By Jeter Day, They’re Cooked

But the reality is that this team may not be capable of any such feat. It’s actually a near miracle that their proximity to the last wild card will make for a meaningful September.
