The NFL has implemented a number of new rules over the past several seasons, most of which attempt to place an emphasis on player safety. If you watched Sunday’s game between the Eagles and Steelers, you may have found yourself thinking the league has to create a rule about throwing an opponent’s shoe. That’s right, a shoe-throwing regulation.

As you can see, Philadelphia defensive back Kurt Coleman tackled Steelers receiver Antonio Brown after Brown caught a pass for a big gain. He also removed Brown’s shoe and angrily tossed it toward the sidelines. A player’s shoe coming off on the field because of a tackle is not an uncommon occurrence, but I’m not sure we’ve ever seen a receiver forced to sit a play out because a defender hummed their shoe across the field.

Maybe Coleman was mad at Brown for making these comments about his teammate earlier in the week. Either way, I’m not sure he deserved the shoe throw.

Video: Who throws a shoe? Kurt Coleman does

The obvious response when you can’t stop a receiver from burning you, is to rip his shoe off when you tackle him and throw it off-the-field. That is what happened in Sunday’s Philadelphia Eagles/Pittsburgh Steelers game. After Antonio Brown was brought down following a 20-yard gain, Kurt Coleman decided to stop him before the next [...]

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.

The Philadelphia Eagles are taking their nice, shiny 3-1 record to Heinz Field where they’re sure to get a few ketchup stains on their uniforms.  The Steelers are a hard team to figure out right now, but I certainly think they are a better team than their 1-2 record would seem to indicate.

Wasted Opportunity for Vick and the Eagles

Steelers Find Running Success Up The Middle Against The Eagles
