Re: Coles Says Jets Lied to Him

Didn't this guy want out of Washington in the worst way? And didn't he bend us over with the money that we had to pay him? No thank you Coles! Stay with the Sh*tty Jets!

That's a lame response. A bum? Did you really compare him to Brandon Lloyd? Do you watch football?

Over the past three seasons Coles has 219 catches, 2589 yards, and 17 touchdowns. That's an average of 73 catches, 863 yards, and about 6 TDs a year. Are those "bum" numbers? He played hurt in all of '07 (no doubt he's tougher than Santana the Hammy), and is one season removed from a 91 catch 1100 yard campaign in '06 when he was healthy with a steady QB.

Over that same span, Santana has 200 catches, 3081 yards, and 18 TDs. Almost identical, although Moss has barely eclipsed 800 yards receiving since his stellar '05 season.

Regardless, they have almost identical numbers since swapping teams, although overall the past two seasons Coles has clearly outplayed Moss, in yards, catches, and touchdowns. So is Moss a "bum" then too?

I don't know why this is so hard for everyone to see. He was made to believe something by the Jets front office, and now they're clearly reneging on whatever it was. Is this so hard to believe after what they did to Pete Kendall? Hell, we were direct recipients of the deceit of the Jets FO in that case. Coles isn't pulling a Latrell Sprewell here. He's simply saying he was assured something, and has given enough to the Jets over the past three years to earn what they promised him.

So he wasn't happy in Washington. I guess that automatically makes him a bad guy and we should trash him, right?

Coles has talent but it seems he wants every thing his way and if that does not happen then he complains.
What you're saying is true. Coles kind of has set his own precedent. But so did the Jets with the Pete Kendall thing. Coles said he wants to know where he's going to spend the rest of his career. To me that means he was promised an extension, not just guaranteed money. Whatever. No one will ever know. Coles is a complainer but he sure as hell doesn't slack on the field. Based on the Kendall thing, I kind of believe Coles.

Re: Coles Says Jets Lied to Him

For the quality of player that Coles is he sure has made a boatload of $$ in this league. Very solid player but he's definitely been overpaid. Not that it's his fault though.

Re: Coles Says Jets Lied to Him

He's a Pro Bowl complainer.. I'm tired of him bitching about his contracts and roles in the offense. I'm probably more of a player apologist who hates the 'just shut up and play' mentality than most people on the board. In his case however, Coles, STFU!

Just a point of fact, even with small deals if Coles was a people person he'd make a killing on endorsements in the New York area,it's one reason Shockey does'nt want to leave.
