    Exclamation Coles Unhappy to face Pats (Harrison Playing??)

    Coles unhappy to face Patriots

    It might be everybody's dream playoff matchup - Jets versus Patriots - but Laveranues Coles isn't everybody. He was hoping for a different first-round opponent.

    "I guess we didn't have much luck," Coles said yesterday. "They're an excellent football team and I really didn't want to play them in the first round ... New England is a totally different team in the playoffs. When you watch them, they're the last team you ever want to see in the playoffs."

    The two AFC East rivals split the season series, each winning on the road: The Patriots won the first meeting, 24-17, with the Jets taking the rematch, 17-14.

    In the Bill Belichick era, the Patriots are 10-1 in the postseason, winning three Super Bowls.

    "We're playing a team that's lived in the playoffs for quite a few years and that locker room is filled with playoff experience," said Eric Mangini, a member of Belichick's staff for all three titles.

    Notebook

    NICK NICKED: Rookie C Nick Mangold (knee) probably will appear on tomorrow's injury report. He was a "little bit sore" and received treatment yesterday for an injury suffered late in the first half of Sunday's win over the Raiders, Mangini said.

    Mangold returned to the game, so he should be ready for Sunday. He already has developed a reputation as a tough guy, missing only two snaps this season despite eye, hip and knee injuries.

    BACK IN A CORNER: The big injury question this week surrounds CB Andre Dyson (sprained knee), who was expected to miss two-to-four weeks after getting hurt in the next-to-last game.

    Veteran David Barrett, a former starter, replaced Dyson in the season finale, earning praise from Mangini for his forced fumble on WR Johnnie Morant. But Barrett wasn't really tested by the Raiders' inept passing attack. It could be a different story against Tom Brady & Co.

    DIRTY POOL: Patriots S Rodney Harrison, the heart and soul of their defense, suffered an apparent knee injury on what he felt was a dirty play by Titans WR Bobby Wade. Harrison said he expects to face the Jets.

    dude, that article is typical Cimini making Coles look like he's scared. Who really does want to face a team that's 10-1 over the past 5 yrs or whatever in the playoffs... sheesh...

    Also, turn on ESPN... Harrison might be out for the entire playoffs.

    If/When the Jets knock the Pats out of the playoffs
    that would be like LAA beating the Yankees in the playoffs

    If I were the Jets I wouldn't want to face the Patsies either. The Pats have done an awful lot of winning there. I thought the most ideal matchup for the Jets would have been Indy. However, that didn't work out so here we are.

    The Patsies are very tough to beat in the playoffs, so in order to win, the Jets will need to have a better gameplan and the players will need to elevate there play moreso than they have all season.

    The Jets can do it, but I think the likelihood of it happening is very slim......

    So he does not respect the Patriots and their 10 - 1 winning record in the playoffs? He is actually saying that he does not respect that

    Think Coles is looking forward to going across the middle against the Pats secondary trying to nab one of PennyBoy's patented wounded duck floaters?

    well, the guy catches everything, so why the hell not?? he didnt have any problem catching passes against Green Bay, and their secondary is a lot tougher than New England's is.

    He should respect that 10-1 playoff record. And all of the great players that helped make it.

    Ty Law
    Willie McGinnis
    Adam Vinitari
    Deion Branch
    Rodney Harrison

    Just to name a few. Oh, that's right. They will not be playing for the Patriots. So much for history.

    Coles is right...

    Patriots are the last team you ever want to play in the playoffs

    I think instead of trying to make it sound like Coles is a ***** and is scared, that you should embrace what he said and pay respect to the best team in the NFL for the past few years
