This might be a good thread - how the hell do I know. Let's take out our crystal balls for a second and look into the future - what do you see for these 2 teams? To me, this is a tough question: Here's what happens to NE: They get caught cheating; lose the 32nd pick in the draft and have to pay some money; they go undefeated this year (probable); they still wind up with a super high draft pick; they probably will take McFadden; next year, with Maroney and McFadden in the backfield; they may go undefeated for the next 2 consecutive years; then they will create a new bowl - the super duper bowl; where the NE Pats play the All-Pros from around the league; the winner gets the Kraft Trophy. Now, how sick is that................part of it is sorta jesting. Jets: KC does prove he is the real deal; we bolster our lines this off-season and duke it out with Buffalo for a possible wild-card spot next year. We make the playoffs in 09 and 10, too. The best we do is get to the AFC Championship game once against - none other than NE (vomit, vomit) and we lose because Nugent slips on the frozen slippery turf in Foxboro while trying to kick a game winner from 35 yards out. NE wins the SB for the 4th consecutive year. I hate to say it, but I really don't see when NE will start to decay. The only thing that could do it is as Brady ages if NE can't find a guy who is his equal talent-wise. NE may take a step back with an aging Defensive backfield, but if they use the 49er pick wisely, and get a real young stud linebacker, I think that would sustain them much better than if they took McFadden.
