It's a bizarro world when Rex Ryan tones down the bravado, and the bold predictions start coming from -- are you ready for this? -- D'Brickashaw Ferguson.
No one on the Jets measures his words more carefully than Ferguson, but there he was Tuesday on the "Dave Dameshek Football Program," talking up his team's chances for the upcoming season.
"We're going to do some nice things this year," Ferguson said. "The focus should be on what's gonna happen this year, and what's in our power to do. We have greatness written all over us. It's just a matter of time."
I guess he didn't get the internal memo, the one about turning down the volume in 2012.
As an aside, the quote reminded me of something Bruce Coslet once said about QB Browning Nagle: "I see greatness in him." For the Jets' sake, they'd better hope that Ferguson's prediction turns out better than Nagle's career.
