Me thinks both Ramsey and Coles are the real deal!

I thought he would be hard pressed to match last years numbers at best without Pennington throwing him the ball. In one of my leagues, I drafted D. Driver ahead of him. The defeneding league champ captain co#$sucker then snickered at me and drafted Coles. Coles is playing and Driver is out as I play captain co$%suckers team this week. So as the fantasy gods like to mock me, yes he is the real deal and I was wrong.

Yikes. 8-o


Does that mean you would NOT have traded Coles for Green?

I read a report that came out training camp and it stated the coles set the standard for the wr workouts. Spurries loves this guy, says just seeing him workout makes all other wr's want to try harder. So I figure if the coach like him, he'll get opportunities. I think Ramsey is the real big surprise. I drafted with a plan and coles was part of that plan. I'm 2-0 so far.

Yeah, he's the real deal. But I'd rather have Green than Coles. A good RB is hard to pickup in a trade.

Coles is the real deal. Ramsey is the real deal. Spurrier loves racking up lots and lots of points. As a result, both Ramsey and Coles will wind up racking lots and lots of points.

I will never forgive the Jets for letting Laverneous go; he was drafted to replace Keyshawn Johnson and the Jets were heavily criticized for taking him so late (I think that was the year they had four first-round picks and took Ellis, Abraham, and Pennington way before Coles, or any receiver for that matter). After last year we were all saying, "Keyshawn who?" Coles is just one of those guys who can make average quarterbacks look good and good quarterbacks look great.

After losing Coles to the Redskins and Pennington to an injury we've gone from playoff hopefuls to looking at an early first round pick next year

Good, because with all this praise, I was getting worried! :)

I'm surprised it took people this long to wise up to Coles. I've had him in the past 2 fantasy football years I've played and he's simply one of the most under-rated players in ff. He's an every week starter if you have him, because if you don't you'll regret it.

It probably just took al of the rest of us awhile because we're so much stupider than you. But thanks for your wisdom. ;-)
