But, all of that being said, Coleman has started 27 games with six interceptions over the last two seasons. Last year he registered a career-high 93 tackles with another career-high 70 of those being solo.
That right there is some solid production from a seventh round pick but, apparently, that kind of production makes you a play-maker. Well, in Kurt Coleman's mind it does. He told reporters on his way into the NovaCare Complex that he "makes plays." He "sees things happens" and he "makes them."
If you take those comments the same way I did, it's really funny. Most of the things that he "saw happen" last year were one of the cornerbacks getting beat badly and the safety (read: Coleman) not being able to stop the suddenly-open wide receiver from reaching pay dirt.
If Coleman was a play-maker, I'd be willing the bet the Eagles secondary wouldn't have been as atrocious as it was last season. Eric Berry and Ed Reed - those guys are play-makers. I really hope Coleman makes me eat my words this year but I don't think he will because, ya know, he's not very good in the grand scheme of things.
