The "Pay Laveranues Coles" Edition of Post of the Week - February 21, 2008


Recommended Posts

Let's see, Laveranues Coles is a:

Team leader - check

Tough player - check

Playmaker - check

Makes players around him better - check

Team guy - check

Do not make the same mistake that was made with Pete Kendall and take care of Laveranues.

Off the soap box and on to the nominations...

Topic: Coles claims he's been lied to...

People here when Mangini came here wondered how Coles would handle it. Well he handled it well enough to be named one of the team Captains last season.

The guy plays till he basically drops, which is alot more than you can say for guys like Ellis, D-Rob, Thomas who basically show up only in the last year of their deal.

The Kendall situation though to me is a little different because you knew this type of situation could occur because of what happend with him in Arizona.

He was a d!ck there and he became a d!ck here.

I wish there about 22 more guys who play the game like Coles on this team. Maybe then we wouldn't be 4-12.

(Editor's Note: The truth and the fact - there are not many guys that put it all on the line like Coles does each week.)

I'm thinking that he just doesn't want to hold them in his hand. Surely he's going to pay for them because I'm looking right at him and we ARE making eye contact. He places the candy on the counter and as the cashier continues with her customer he looks at me again. I proceed to give him "the look" staring at him, then at his pocket then back to him. He just gives me this brain dead look. Now the cashier is ready for him. She rings up the candy says the amount and he starts to pull out his wallet. "Excuse me" I interupt. "What about the lighters in your pocket ? " "Huh" he mumbles. "The lighters. In your pocket? What about them? " He then puts them on the counter as the cashier screams "GET OUT" to him "AND NEVER COME BACK" . He looks at me and I add "I was looking right at you. What are you, dumb as a stump? ". He looks at the cashier and says "Can I pay for my candy? " At that point she picks up the phone and starts dialing the cops as he quietly shuffles out the door. Exactly how stupid IS this next generation? Is it the rap music that preaches that it's wrong to snitch? Thoughts?

Herm Edwards...


There's certain guys we're going to go after and certain guys we're not even going to deal with.

--Wow... thanks Capt. Obvious.

We brought [Alfonso] Boone in knowing he hadn't been a starter and there wasn't a lot of tread on him.

--Wait... dont you want a lot of tread?? I thought when the tread wore out you replaced the tire... would figure it would be the same thing. Now we know, Hermie likes everything bald.

What hurt him last year was he played too much.

When he came here and became a starter, he didn't understand, now all of a sudden you're playing 35 plays a game instead of 25.

--So those extra 10 plays were a drain on him??? If he said he used to play 10 plays and now he has to play 35... but 25 to 35?? sounds like lousy coaching...


We might have champagne taste, but we've got beer money.

--I would have preferred a malt liquor reference instead... much cheaper than beer.

Those guys always are the guys that you pay too much money for. You always do, because you're buying the guy's name. It looks good in the paper, it looks good when you make the announcement, but at the end of the day, does the guy still play up to the name? If they're at a certain time in their career, I say they don't.

--So no more big names like Ty Law I guess... Hermie switching strategies again...


I know this. He's going to be happy because he's a football player. He's going to play football.

--Great insight.

That's what's great about my job. I don't deal with contracts. I don't have to deal with that.

--This way he cant be blamed if a guy he signed doesnt work out and he can blame someone else...

This is a business. That's what's great about football - there’s the football and there's a business part. They're in the business part of it. I don't have to deal with that.

--Whats great about football is its a business??? And I thought it was great because of the play on the field...

He went to the Pro Bowl, but he's a part of the team. That's what you have to realize, it's about the team. It's not about one guy. It's about all of us, and we're all in this together. That's what these guys are going to learn.

--Unless its about Herm Edwards... then its about one guy.


You can always get those guys in the middle of training camp. Those older veteran guys? They don't want to go to training camp anyway. You don't need to be in a panic to get them now. I say, get all the young guys, bring them in here, let them compete.

--Look at all the great veterans the jets got last year during training camp...


What the Giants did, they started off just like us, 0-2. Just like last year.

--What about the fact you were 4-3 and then lost 9 straight games??

For some people, it was a terrible game, because it was 17-14. I don't understand that. That became a great game. When you play those on Sunday, sometimes people say that's awful, you guys didn't score any touchdowns. Well, 17-14, that's a pretty good football game. What's wrong with that?

--For Pats fans it was a terrible game... but I dont remember anyone saying the game was terrible because it was 17-14. But it fits into Herm's philosophy of scoring less than 20 pts.


I don't know him, but I've kind of watched the way his teams have played.

--He doesnt know him, but he kind of watched the way his teams played? Are you kidding me?

He's very thorough, very detailed and very organized. But simplicity is good. It's complicated when people look at it, but when you do it for the players, the players are going to like it. It'll be physical, I know that, on offense.

--So its simple but looks complicated? Or does it just look complicated to Hermie?


It's fun for me, but then we put the tape on and watch them and I say, "OK, tell me what you're doing. Why did you throw the ball over there? What was your read on this coverage?"

--He does this so he can learn how football is played. Hermie doesnt know.

It's kind of fun to listen to the guy talk. You find out about the guy. Does he know what he's doing?

--Funny. we listened to Hermie talk and found out he didnt know what he was doing by his actions on the sidelines.

Another great Hermie interview.

(Editor's Note: Bravo - great work here, Lil Bit!! You wanna do POTW next week?)

by the way, drug use when I was 18 was limited to real drugs, not all the fabrications and crack s**t made up in someones basement..Murder rates are so far beyond now, you couldn't possibly be serious when you mentioned it..Have you checked crime rates in your own town before saying that dribble in your post?

so, the next day, i filled up 1/2 with milk, and the other half of warm DK gold. I even put a skull and crossbones on the container with a warning: this is PISS.

sadly, they still gobbled it up.

At another job, my food was missing. especially my pizza. so whats a gal to do? well, I took off all the peperoni slices, rubbed them over my azhole after i took a chit and replaced them. that was also eaten.

Congratulation to war ensemble for winning this week's POTW. This is a great post for a lot of reasons, but it really stands out on after a terrible year for the Jets. Thank you, Max for providing us a home, and thank you war ensemble for the great post. Wear the badge with pride this week


Assist of the Week goes to Bob - I would have skipped out on POTW again this week if I had not read the "manscape" line early on in my search. Thanks, Bob!

That's all for this time, kids. Y'all be cool...

My official stand on Laveranues Coles:

He is a phenomenal player, unlike Pete Kendall, who is a mediocre whining little crybaby bitch. Laveranues Coles is a true warrior. Outside of Wayne Chrebet, I have never seen a New York Jet give himself so completely every week to the Jets. He is a great competitor, talent, and leader in the locker room.

great job beans, you read about my plans for amedo's if the jets win it all this year?

i'd love to keep coles only if we can get a legit #1 without trading him and coles is willing to move to the slot. coles would unstoppable there. problem is i doubt he'd be willing to take a "demotion" and not offense to his effort and willingness to lay it on the line, he lacks to size and home run potential of a true #1.

The New York Jets have already PAID Coles. I agree he is a warrior he plays the game 110% every down every play.But hes not worth anymore than he is already being paid.He signed the contract,not you or I. He doesnt have the statistics to demand this.

When does it end.We as a team cannot afford to overpay these older veterans when we have so many needs to improve from 4-12.

Lavernous coles is not a number 1 reciever... rather have Roy williams..

I would rather have both. Seems to me we're going to end up with more cap room than we can use. Despite my distaste for his interpretation of being "screwed over" (we "disrespectfully" gave him $8M in bonus money from 2005-2006, two years after the Redskins gave him a $13M signing bonus) there's no sense in losing Coles.

When I read GG's airport advice for Afo the other day, I literally burst out laughing out loud. My entire family was in the living room with me, and they were like "what?". :)

Congrats war ensemble, and thank you Bob, for giving Beans the drive to put forward his always witty and wonderful POTW thread this week :). I wouldn't blame you for taking some time off during the offseason, Beans, you certainly more than deserve it. Please know, that it is very appreciated.
