  • Looking Back : Laveranues Coles / Santana Moss

    Laveranues Coles

    2005

    Receptions : 73
    Yards : 845
    YD/Rec : 11.6
    TDs : 5

    2006 - Week 10

    Receptions: 51
    Yards : 635
    YD/Rec : 12.5
    TDs: 3

    Santana Moss

    2005

    Receptions: 84
    Yards : 1483
    YD/Rec : 17.7
    TDs : 9

    2006 - Week 10
    Receptions : 31
    Yards: 452
    YD/Rec : 14.6

    I'm pretty sure, but not 100% that Moss has missed a game this year.

    Which WR would you rather have and why? Keep in mind the QB situation for each player this year and last.

    I see Coles play every week and he makes the catches when they count. He fights for the ball whenever it is in his area and always seems to come down with a catch on 3rd down. He goes across the middle and makes plays when we need them. Anyone that has seen him play this year for the Jets knows he has been very important to the success they are having this year.

    So, who would you take? If you were the Jets or Redskins, who do you think made out better?

    I would take Coles, better hands and can run more routes. He can also be a return man and run reverses like Moss. Coles hands down. I am not a fan of the receivers that can only run routes close to the sideline where they can just step out of bounds and avoid contact. I would much rather a receiver who isn't afraid to take a couple hits like Steve Smith or Anquan Boldin.

      It's a matter of taking the conistent guy that will be there on every play and stretch for those 3rd downs, or the inconsistent one that can singlehandedly take over a game.

      I'd take Coles without question. He's one of the toughest receivers in the league.

        moss for me....more athletic IMO, more big play ability, and you can get him the ball in a bunch of different ways, which is a quality i love in a WR.

          Didn't Moss miss last week's game?

              I would take Moss because I like his style more than Coles.

              I think the trade worked for both teams though, Coles didn't fit in Washington and Moss didn't fit in NY, but both fit where they are now.

              That is correct comahan

                Moss by far, this isn't really that close.

                  It's really Moss and he is a very underrated blocker, and when you look at this years stats you have to consider the QB's, if you have seen a skins game, 90% of Mark Brunells passes are check downs to Ladell Betts Moss has had maybe 10 balls or less thrown to him over 10 yards.

                    what reason would you have for this not being close?

                    Moss is a big play WR and

                    Coles is a better route runner and has good hands

                    they both are very good WRs

                      To me because recievers like Moss are much harder to find than recievers like Coles.


                      Nobody cares about your stupid fantasy team.

                        I think both teams got a good deal but I would take Moss if I had the choice.

                            Santana Moss, better playmaker. It's not like he still can't run routes and doesn't have good hands, they're both good enough to make him a top 15 reciever in the league.

                              I think it really comes down to what you personally like in a reciever, a guy that's going to be consistent week in and week out throughout games and goes over the middle or a guy who can disappear at times but make huge game-shifting plays at any moment. Moss was invisible at times when I watched him play for the Jets but makes those plays that are huge for an offense and a football team and can really win you games. Coles doesn't make those plays much, if at all (that run after catch for TD against the Pats the first time they played this year was nice, but that's the only play he's made this year that sticks out in my mind) but he's a consistent threat who's tough and willing to go over the middle.
