Kurt Coleman Does Something No Eagles Safety Has Done Since Brian Dawkins

Kurt Coleman nabbed his fourth pick of the season yesterday, which leads the team. The last time an Eagles safety had four or more picks in a season was when none other than Brian Dawkins did it in 2006.

Of course, Coleman's four picks have all come in two games. His previous three came in week 6 when Rex Grossman.... acted like Rex Grossman. Coleman is also second on the team in tackles with 74.

Coleman was not the only Eagle to equal one of the franchise greats yesterday. Jason Babin & Trent Cole each had three sacks, which was the first time a pair of Eagles had three more sacks in a game since Reggie White & Clyde Simmons did it in 1992 against the Giants.
