Asante Samuel Enjoying Revenge Against The Birds

Every time a player is released or traded he longs to get the chance for revenge against his former team as a way of showing them that they made a mistake.  Most of the time that opportunity never comes around, but former Eagles cornerback Asante Samuel got his revenge yesterday.

He and the Falcons dominated the Birds in a 30-17 victory and Samuel was all smiles and bravado in the post game.

“Man, it felt great — in front of all my fans that love me!” Samuel said as he conducted court after the game. “The best team after the bye week is us. It just felt good. That was a good ol’ fashioned ass-whoopin’ right there.”

The cornerback who was never short for words went right after his former head coach, Andy Reid.

“Can you believe that”, Samuel said referring to him approaching Reid after the game. “He didn’t speak to me. Like it’s my fault. What did I do to you?” Samuel asked. “I think it was the way we were dancing out there. It got to him a little bit.

“I gave a what up to him: ‘What’s up coach?’ I don’t know why [he didn’t speak to me]. He deferred [after the coin toss]. What the hell.”

Samuel really enjoyed sticking a verbal dagger in Reid’s back, when asked about what was the difference in the two teams.

“The difference between these teams I think is the coaching,” he said. “We got really good coaching. We run the ball. Time of possession is real good.”

Samuel did get straight-armed to the ground by LeSean McCoy before the running back went into the end zone for the Eagles first touchdown.  He also missed a tackle on DeSean Jackson on a short hitch route and the wide out turned it into a 32-yard gain.

Reid has made so many personnel mistakes, doing some research Namdi has NEVER been on a winning professional team. It is just an example of how this organization has transformed from a tough home raised contending team to this gimmicky bunch of me first assholes. They are impossible to watch.

Namdi has never done jack, but he’s got a cool name, he’s educated, he fits in perfectly with this 22 dysfunctional starters, make it 21, as shady is a football player

In fairness, everyone in their mother thought Nnamdi was a stud. He was supposedly the best free agent in years. We ALL thought the Eagles made great moves that offseason. Atleast a good 95% of us.

The problem is the coaching staff. Specifically Reid. He went with Howard Mudd as Oline coach, who has shown he is severely overrated. And the personell on the Oline is horrendous. Playcalling is also atrocious.

Yes we thought he was a stud but we are amateurs. The people making a good salary should know a little about building a TEAM! Also, the new philosophies of two coaches who were retired AR should have understood how it was going to mesh. Yes 60% of the o.line is hurt but JP was hurt last spring and they went out and made a personnel decision for his replacement that has been terrible. In the last two or three years almost every decision has been bad with the exception of McCoy.
