Redskins deal Coles to Jets for Moss (http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/news;_ylc=X3oDMTBpNWZic251BF9TAzI1NjY0ODI1BHNlYwN0 aA--?slug=ap-jets-redskinstrade&prov=ap&type=lgns)

"Coles met with coach Joe Gibbs twice after the season to state his desire to leave the Redskins, following an unsatisfying year in the team's conservative offense.

As for Moss, the game-breaking receiver had a breakout year in 2003, with 1,105 yards and 10 touchdowns. But his productivity slipped in 2004, when he had 45 catches for 838 yards and five touchdowns while battling through a sore hamstring. He also was critical of his role in the Jets' conservative offense, wondering why he didn't get the ball more."

Two unhappy guys. I think its a good trade for both. They are small guys who are fast. Hopefully they get better opportunites with their new teams.

I'm cool with that one. Coles doesn't like to block.

What hurts is the impending loss of Pierce to the Giants. He had an outstanding season last year and was the heart of the defense.
