As they like to say in the football world, Coles and Pennington are on the same page.
"We have an open line of communication and, whenever you have two guys that can talk about anything on and off the field, it makes for a great relationship and that's what we have," said Coles.
On the field, they each have a sixth sense of what the other one is thinking.
"When certain things happen, I can look at him and just smile and he'll say "good job" or he'll just nod at me," said Coles. "I don't know how to explain it, but it is what it is. We enjoy working with each other and we have bonded."
And the re-emergence of the Pennington-Coles combination, has made the Jets one of the surprise teams in the NFL this year.
"It's great," said Coles. "Any time you go out with nothing to lose and people didn't expect you to win anyway. It's easy on us; before the season started, someone came in and told us our receiving corps was in the bottom five of the league. I said, ‘well that's good because at least if we go out there and don't do anything, no one expected us to anyway.' When we go out and do okay, it makes it look like we've done a lot."
