In only seven days the NFL season will be over and every team will be back to 0-0. Think of that if you are wallowing around in Giants/Patriots depression right now, New York Jets fans. Here are a few other rumors, tidbits and links to help pull you through the rest of the day -

Roll Tide – Early draft speculation has linked the New York Jets to three Alabama players, defensive end/outside linebacker Courtney Upshaw, safety Mark Barron, and running back Trent Richardson. Mike Tannenbaum would likely have to do some maneuvering to get his hands on Upshaw or Richardson who probably won’t be around at number 16. In terms of need, running backs are much easier to find than pass rushers which means the Jets should heavily explore doing what it takes to add Upshaw or another pass rushing threat in the first round.

Coaching Staff – The Jets have added former Minnesota Vikings coach Karl Dunbar to their staff as the defensive line coach, prior to that they added Dave DeGuglielmo from Miami to coach the offensive line. They still need to find a quarterbacks coach for Tony Sparano’s offensive staff.

Pro-Bowl Pondering - When 3 of your 5 starting offensive lineman are in Hawaii, you shouldn’t have the issues protecting the quarterback and running the football the Jets did this past season. Hopefully Sparano will help change some of that yet finding a new right tackle is priority 1A alongside adding a pass rusher this off-season.

Something To Root For – Curtis Martin is making another push for Canton. Let’s hope the Jets running back receives the recognition he deserves this year and is enshrined alongside Bill Parcells, his long time head coach.

The Knicks Awfulness – I figured the Knicks would be a welcome distraction for me when the Jets season ended, unfortunately they have been a massive disappointment by stumbling out to a 7-13 start. I don’t how know much Baron Davis is going to help but things can’t get much worse than they are right now.
