Let me try to turn a positive out of what looks to be the most horrific matchup we could've imagine. There are a few reasons why I think we, Patriot fans, should do the unimaginable, and root for the MF Jets. - Draft position: Our draft spot will become one spot better if the Jets win. A very nominal change. (EDIT: Whoops, wrong on this one) But more importantly, the Jets will drop to 31. The Jets have been picking ahead of us for several years now, and have done well in the draft. Let's face it, the NYJ are better than we may have thought, and now appear to be a threat going forward. The Jets picking at the end of each round while we pick closer towards the middle would be a good opportunity to help retain our AFCE dominance. - It will tick off Bill Belichick, Tom Brady & the Krafts - in a good way: The core of our dynasty (BB, TB & Krafts) all share a common hatred of the NYJ. Seeing the Jets go to the Super Bowl would ignite even more motivation than possible - particularly in this all-important offseason. The Krafts will be fighting their instinct to approach this unique free agent season with caution. A Jets SB appearance might move them to act more aggressively in the offseason. - The Jets are less likely to win the next game: The Colts would probably beat either the Saints or the Vikings. I just don't see either of those teams losing to the Jets, though, they are just too potent offensively and too decent defensively. - The Jets will lose the underdog mentality: The Jets have been dangerous all year as a team with nothing to lose and as a team perceived to have low expectations. They've had very little pressure on them, and when they did - after their hot start - they folded, horribly. Going into next season with that kind of pressure might make them fold once again, and make our regular season easier. - The AFCE will be more respected: The AFCE is very underrated. As football outsiders pointed out, Brady faced the toughest pass defenses any QB has faced in nearly two decades. That's b/c the teams in our division are building themselves towards stopping our passing attack now. And they're doing a good job at it. Both the Jets & Bills have tough pass defenses. And I think the AFCE being perceived as a tougher division helps our legacy and reputation. - The Colts losing cements us as Team of the Decade, if somehow, the mediots think that's still up for grabs: The media is incapable of simple math, such as 3 > 2. Trust me, if the Colts win this SB, the discussion will be brought up, and it will be extremely annoying.
