Normally the question would set off something ... Well, interesting.
So New York Jets, are you the new beasts of the East?
Maybe they do believe that to be the case. But they're not saying it out loud.
Darrelle Revis told me earlier today that it was a "tough question. I know we've got a lot of upside. We just have to build off what we did last year."
Rex Ryan added, "Hell, I said we should be favorites for the Super Bowl, and that never worked out, so we'll see."
Geez!!! I'll have more on the Jets and their 2010 prospects in my Sunday Notes tomorrow. Hopefully, when that season comes around, they'll be back to their talkative selves.
