The New York Jets sit on the brink of extinction.
The playoff picture
How would your team's prospects look if the season ended today? See where each team stands in the playoff picture midway through the season.
Our gang of Around The League scribes is pondering "sticking a fork" in Gang Green -- but it appears Kellen Winslow has beaten us to it.
The Jets tight end -- responding to former NFL wide receiver Donte' Stallworth's Twitter request for Super Bowl predictions -- looked right past his own team.
"I got the pats vs broncos in AFC championship and Panthers vs Seahawks in NFC championship," Winslow wrote in a Monday tweet that he's since deep-sixed, per the New York Post.
Nestled at 5-7, the schizophrenic Jets are just one game behind the Baltimore Ravens and Miami Dolphins for the AFC's sixth playoff seed, but the situation is increasingly grim. New York has been an abject disaster on offense of late, with rookie quarterback Geno Smith dissolving into a turnover machine with a league-leading 19 interceptions.
Hard to kill Winslow for being a realist. The Jets -- an airship coursing into the void -- are done.
