No one is claiming the Patriots recent playoff performances are anything short of disappointing, but this conversation is about their drafting- in which you and several others still cling to comparisons of drafts from 2005-2007 ( of which you wont find a single Patriot fan that claims the Jet's drafts were anything but outstanding). However, I don't think criticism of the Patriots drafts as of late is really all that reasonable, especially in the context that they have completely rebuilt their team while remaining a Superbowl contender.
On that note, pound your chest all you want about the Jets going 3-2 against the Pats the last two seasons, but as you alluded, wake me up when you win something that matters.
The Pats blew the draft this year, even writers who live with their noses up Belichicks ass were disappointed. How do you go into the draft with your biggest weakness being your front seven and come away empty handed? They go out and draft two mid round talent RB's when they already have Green Ellis and Woodhead, they blew it with the QB pick who will be holding a clipboard for five years minimum... for what? For a future second rounder? The Pats are always thinking long term but their present's not as rosy. How did they Pats rebuild their team with their draft? Take away Wilfork and that defense is dogsht. Winning four away games in the playoffs in meaningful, wake me up when the Pats win anything meaningful without cheating.
