PFT: PATS - Jest rivalry will still be juicy even w/Fredo in Cleveland
I'm sure BB's buddy Jimmy Johnson will be pulling for us to beat up on Buddy's son.

Moreover, and as a reader points out, new Jets coach Rex Ryan had some choice words for the Patriots when Spygate hit the fan in September 2007.
“I’m not sure sports are supposed to be about who can cheat the best,” Ryan told Peter King of SI.com. “I should be worrying about how to beat a team, not spending hours figuring out how to disguise what I’m doing. I hope this gets us back to football the way it should be.”
They’re cute when they’re naive, aren’t they?
Look, if anyone realizes that stuff like what the Patriots were doing was commonplace in the NFL, it’s the son of a long-time assistant coach and head coach, whose antics allegedly included issuing bounties on opposing players.
Then there’s the fact that Ryan’s brother, Rob, worked for the Pats from 2000 through 2003.
So Rex Ryan knows how things have worked in the NFL. And his decision to play the phony holier-than-thou card in 2007 is surely something that wasn’t missed by the folks in New England.
