    Re: This doesn't make any sense

    The bottom line to all of this is on the field production.  Look at the Pats' success in the past decade.  End of story.  No more argument to be made.  And they are set up for a good run for the next 4-5 years with lots of younger players who were part of a 14-2 team.  The future looks bright.  The Jets have lots of work to do to repeat last year.   

    OK, the Jets beat the Pats in the playoffs!  Feel better?  Good for you Jets!  But to ignore the ongoing ineptitude of your franchise over the past 4+ decades or to blindly attack one of the better run franchises in football with what have always been spurious arguments is at best childish, at worst just lack of plain old football knowledge.   

    As has been pointed out ad nauseum to the masochistic Jets trolls who act like scorned lovers that BB left at the altar, having more picks means you can take more chances.  Having a highly competitive team means less roster openings.  Bust is a relative term.  The Pats struck out on Chad Jackson and Maroney was marginal but semi-productive.  Look at Gholston, Robertson, Wilson and Sanchez.  (Just imagine if the Jets had taken a legit QB like Freeman -- oops!)  The Jets have their failings too, and with much higher draft picks than the Pats. 

    The Pats need to be better in the playoffs for sure.  The Jets should get to and win a superbowl before preening around like the rooster in the barnyard.

    In Response to Re: This doesn't make any sense:
    In Response to This doesn't make any sense : Teams still just start out with 1 selection per round, right?  Unless of course, your players are good enough to BOTH leave in free agency AND get good playing time, WITH a big contract on a new team, right?  In this case, and with a Salary Cap, you thus cannot sign all your best free agents, and your thus awarded a comp pick...Jets don't many of these see, b/c they don't have enough talent to lose.  Overall, ya gotta figure in THIS: Which would be-How many former Patriots from these drafts are still in the league vs How Many NY Jets players.  You'd also might want to consider that for the first few years of these drafts in question, NE was on the heels of winning 3 Superbowls, so their team was vet heavy, and thus-Well, ya don't wanna screw with a SP Championship team that much the next year (not alot of openings).  Also, ya might like to add in how many picks NE has this year in the opening rounds alone (6 picks in 3 rounds to the Jets 2).  Either way, IF you ridiculously don't wanna figure in to the equation ANY of these things...?  Then fine.  Let's just do easy math then, o.k?  So, NE had 51 picks with 23 still on the team, right?  Jets 27 picks with 17 still on the team...  This would be 6 more guys on NE's team...  That's doing better.

    Rexy - don't bother discussing "today" with them.  They are still lost in 01,03 and 04 as if it were yesterday.  Someone needs to tell them Teddy Bruschi, Mike Vrabel, Willie McGinest, Ty Law, Rodney Harrison, Ted Washington, Assante Samuel and the rest of that great defense are not walking through those doors.
