With all of the different rules that defensive backs have to abide by, playing cornerback and safety in the NFL is one of the tougher tasks in sports.  You can only put your hands on receivers within the first five yards of the line of scrimmage.  You can’t make contact with them before they touch the ball.  If you don’t turn around and look at the ball on a pass thrown your way, you can put money on there being laundry on the field.  And to top it off, you aren’t allowed to rip off receivers’ shoes and throw them off the field.

It’s preposterous.  Seriously, a defender is supposed to run with a receiver from the snap of a ball, not touch him after five yards, not get burnt deep and then they can’t even yank off the receiver’s shoe and chuck it twenty yards off the field?!  That’s just unfair.

Oh, apparently you can do this if your name is Kurt Coleman (#42) and you play safety for the Philadelphia Eagles.  Antonio Brown was left with one shoe and had to grab a new one off the sidelines.  And you know how it is.  New shoes give you blisters.  Nobody likes blisters.

NFL Rumors: Last season for Michael Vick with the Philadelphia Eagles?

The turnovers continue for Philadelphia Eagles QB Michael Vick and at some point, you must raise the question as to whether or not this will be his last season with the Philadelphia Eagles. Yes, Vick is an exciting, dynamic player, but his reckless ball control issues are not stopping and most likely cost Philadelphia the game against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday. Yes, the Eagles...

Michael Vick has no explanation for his fumblitis

The explanation is pretty simple to me, he doesn’t secure the ball properly when he runs. It is one thing to fumble when you get hit from the blind side or in the process of passing, but what Vick has never learned in his ten years in the league is how to protect the ball when he is running. Here is what Vick had to say courtesy of Pro Football Talk. “I wish I could tell you...

I wouldn’t mind if this happened during the Eagles-Steelers game (VIDEO)

Ben Roethlisberger getting sucked into the ground? I don’t mind. If it were to happen, the Eagles would of course wind up safely where Hines Ward lands in the clip. A girl can dream. Want more Philly Sports Muse? You can find me on Twitter at @sports_muse and on Facebook.

Steelers edge Eagles on last-second field goal

PITTSBURGH -- At some point, the Philadelphia Eagles' high-wire act to start the season was going to come crashing down. It was only fitting that it came at the hands of another comeback artist. Ben Roethlisberger engineered a game-winning drive that ended with Shaun Suisham's 34-yard field goal as time expired, and the Steelers edged the Eagles 16-14 Sunday at Heinz Field...

Steelers Versus Eagles Game Rewind – First Half Notes

The Pittsburgh Steelers beat the Philadelphia Eagles 16-14 on Sunday and below are my first half notes from the game with the second half notes to follow soon. Nice bracket coverage on the early deep pass Jeremy Maclin by both Ike Taylor and Ryan Clark.
