Pats do it their way, we do it ours

As much as I hate The Hoodie, I love him for doing things his way.How to build an NFL team has no blueprint. Transforming a roster of Superbowl champs to tomorrows champs is pretty damn complicated. The Pats have decided
to pay very few the big dollars, and trade/cut /let go some core veterans(Vrabel, Seymour, Moss, Samuels) and rebuild by stacking/compiling draft picks.Not first round higher cost draft picks , but by being Kings of the second round/third round, getting good talent on the cheap. They certainly are young and fast.Our man Tanny has taken a completely different approach.He undervalues draft picks and takes much more of an eclectic approach to the few  roster spots he wants filled-quality over quantity.The Jets have 12 out of 22 starters being first round draft choices(7 of their own).Tanny makes it work salary cap wise(this year at least) because he takes some low moral,high ceiling guys that other teams discard and gets them on the cheap, and running a high front/low bottom payroll roster .The idea that B.B.can be completely serious and say they are a better team without Moss is such a great lesson in steadfast confidence .The  belief that his system can overcome  with slightly inferior talent should inspire any Pat fan. The  thing is,  he now has to prove it. Rex and the Jets say superior talent and good coaching trumps all. The Hoodie says his system trumps all. The Pats are 3-1 and won the division last year. They are still good. We have to dethrone them ,it's not the other way around. It's a great mental battle and the rest of the NFL is watching closely. How many roster spots can draft picks take? If  you are really good to begin with, not that many-I think?. This kind of gladiatorial chess match is what makes the NFL so great.
