Keidel: Eli Manning Deserves That Big, Fat Extension — Now!

The Giants’ corporate coda should take a back seat to common sense when it comes to their best and most important player.

Keidel: Wright Doesn’t Deserve To Symbolize Mets’ Snakebitten Ways

David Wright got a bad break with spinal stenosis. You would just think that he’d paid enough dues by now.

Keidel: No One Is More Motivated To Win Than LeBron James

All eyes are on LeBron. He’s not just trying to bring a trophy to Cleveland. He’s adding jewels to his crown, which he will one day try to match with Michael Jordan

Keidel: Bowles Did Right By Announcing Jets Aren’t Giving Geno A Free Pass

Thank goodness for Todd Bowles, who interceded in the insanity by asserting that Geno Smith would merely compete for the starting quarterback job, not inherit it.

Keidel: Yeah, It’s Early, But Mets, Yankees Look Like They May Remain The Epitome Of Average

With the Rangers one loss from a long vacation, New York needs some juice from one of the baseball locals. But our clubs are hardly draining our adrenal glands.

Keidel: Kerr Cemented Himself As A Genius When He Told The Zen Master No

Perhaps the greatest business decision over the last 20 years — other than buying Apple stock — was a choice to coach a basketball team. And to not coach another.

Keidel: LeBron James Vs. Michael Jordan

Michael Jordan, his eminence, excellence, and the exemplar of modern basketball, is the unquestioned king. But can King James leave the game with just one more jewel in his crown?

Robert Kraft

Keidel: The NFL And The Public Are No Longer Listening To The Patriots

The buck stops with Kraft, and he wants no more of it. He was apparently appalled that we’re still talking about “Deflategate” four months after the controversy splashed across every front page.

Keidel: Yankees Are Right Back Where I Thought They’d Be — Behind The Mets

It seems everyone, including my treasonous editors, have demanded a public apology from yours truly.

Keidel: Pete Rose Is Many Things, But Wrong About Jorge Posada He’s Not

The New York Times recently ran a revealing piece on Pete Rose. The all-time hits leader is creeping back into baseball through the back door — the media. He’s part of a three-headed think tank on Fox Sports 1.

Keidel: From Deflate To Checkmate

The NFL hammered Tom Brady for his role in “DeflateGate” for good reason. We can’t have the best players in America’s favorite sport toying with the rules.

Keidel: Patriots Haunted By Their Past And Their Unbelievable Arrogance

Remove emotion for a moment. Forget that the Patriots have always been your favorite team or always beat your favorite team.

Keidel: NFL Right To Drop Hammer On Golden Boy Tom Brady

For the first time in a long time, Tom Brady is looking terribly average and horribly awkward. Many boys looking for a hero, and many men who thought they found one, will find that rather deflating.

Keidel: It’s Fun Watching Almighty Patriots, And Their Fans, Squirm For A Change

The Pats have held the NFL by the privates for so long, and a robust dose of humility, if not humiliation, is in order.

Keidel: As The Air Comes Out Of The Patriots, The Jets Should Take Flight

Armed with a fertile draft and serious free agent signings, Gang Green already has a leg up entering the season, especially if Brady is suspended for a game or two to start 2015.
