The New York Jets Twitter Account Congratulated Every Other Team On Their Picks Last Night! Even the Pats!

This is despicable! Who ever was responsible for tweeting out congratulations last night to each and every NFL team on their draft pick should be locked in a cold basement with only a keg and a sleeping-bag for 3 nights.  The tweet that seems that sticks out as the most horrid is the one to the Patriots.  Why would you even acknowledge anything that your biggest rival does? ...
