Kick ’em when they’re down, why don’t you.
The New England Patriots are the poster child for success during the Tom Brady era, perennial Super Bowl contenders with five wins in the big game and no signs of slowing down. The New York Jets are — the Jets. The bumbling and stumbling team that seemingly has no plan for long-term success is in the midst of a total tear down, shedding veterans like old shoes as the team tanks in hopes of landing a franchise quarterback in the 2018 draft.
So, talk about two team on opposite ends of the spectrum. And the Patriots are relishing it it.
During a stop at the Patriots Hall of Fame, Josh Kraft, the son of team owner Robert Kraft, had this to say, as reported in a tweet from the Boston Herald:
“It’s a lot better than the Jets’ Hall of Fame, which is nonexistent,” the younger Kraft said.
Yep, kick ’em while they’re down.
