If the Patriots had completely fallen off a cliff or had become a .500ish up-and-down team since last winning a Super Bowl, I could understand you goofing on them.
Patriots in the nine years since their last Super Bowl victory: 110-34, 9-8 in the playoffs, 8 playoff appearances, 2-3 in AFC Championship games, 2 Super Bowl appearances
Jets in that same time frame: 69-75, 4-3 in playoffs, 0-2 in AFC Championship games, 0 Super Bowl appearances
Jets are 5-14 against the Pats in that time.
The Jets have may won a game here and there against the Pats, including a big Divisional Playoff game up in NE that was probably the biggest win of the last decade for the Jets, but it's not like they've have had a whole lot of success at the Pats' expense in the last nine seasons. Bringing up Spygate yet again doesn't change any of that, or minimize it.
And at least admit you wouldn't be saying a peep about Spygate if it had been the Jets involved. And that Super Bowl victory or no Super Bowl victory, you would kill to see the Jets do what the Pats have done in the past nine years. Hell, even the Pats' two Super Bowl appearances alone are more than 12 current NFL teams for their entire histories.

Even when Marty comes back maybe Larry should put Clemmensen to be on the goal during the shootouts.
Can the coach do that ? Switch the goalies 5 seconds to go in overtime? - Most priceless quote ever posted on a message board.
Martin Brodeur: THE MOST ALL-TIME WINS!, 12 straight seasons of 30+ wins, 3 Stanley Cups, 4 Vezina Trophies, and zero respect from too many so-called Devils "fans" who are either too young or too bandwagon to remember the much darker days of Sean Burke, Craig Billington, Bob Sauve, Alain Chevrier, and the talented but overwhelmed Chico Resch, among many others.
It's easy to support a great player when he's playing at his very best. It takes a true fan to support that same player during those rare moments and stretches when he's not. Babe Ruth went 0-4 some games, and sometimes Wayne Gretzky was held pointless. There may be such a thing as greatness, but no such thing as absolute perfection every single night.
