Without making any judgement on any of the players there are now 2 rookie players on the Jets and Pats that will be forever (or at least as long as they are in the league) linked as far as fans are concerned.
While they play different positions and in different styles of defenses, the relative success or failure of Coples and Jones is long going to be a topic of discussion between Pats and Jets fans....fair or unfair as it may be.
The same now goes between the 2 new Safeties of each team. Tayvon Wilson and Josh Bush will now become linked and their career paths will be as heatedly compared as Coples/Jones.
Wilson and Bush were both rated as 7th round picks by CBSsports, and both were "reaches" by teams that needed help at S, though the Jets didn't "reach" nearly as far as the Pats did.
Its contentious, its competitive, its sometimes historic in nature, but the "Border War" is NEVER dull
