Kurt Coleman said he could read Rex Grossman


I’m not sure if Kurt Coleman’s three interceptions on Sunday will lead to a similar relationship with Rex Grossman, but Coleman had some mildly interesting words Sunday night on Sirius XM NFL Radio.

“To be honest, I give all the credit to my teammates,” Coleman said. “They were able to get a lot of pressure on Rex. And for myself, I was able to read Rex all day. I had a great feeling for where he was going to all of his wide receiver. And when it came down to it, it was either me or the other guy making a play, and I wasn’t gonna let that other guy make the play.”

Then Coleman was asked if anything changed when John Beck entered the game.

“We definitely had to just stay with the same plan,” he said. “And for myself, like I said, I was having a great time reading Rex. It’s almost like when you bring in a relief pitcher, it kind of takes a little bit of time to get used to him. Fortunately enough for us, we knew that they had to throw the ball. And if you can just limit the deep play, the big play, the time was in our favor.”
