Asante Samuel, as you might imagine, was in his glory following Sunday’s game.
The Eagles’ secondary struggled, the defense was picked apart and his Falcons delivered a damaging blow to Andy Reid.
“Man, it felt great — in front of all my fans that love me!” Samuel barked. “The best team after the bye week is us. It just felt good. That was a good ol’ fashioned ass-whoopin’ right there.”
Samuel set his sights on Reid, who reportedly parted with the cornerback this offseason because he felt his play was in steep decline. Samuel said Reid refused to talk to him on Sunday.
“Can you believe that? 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?”
The main shot at Reid came when a reporter asked what the biggest difference is between the Falcons and Eagles.
“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.”
As for Reid’s decision to part with Juan Castillo?
“Juan, didn’t he have the No. 12 defense in the league? Juan was doing pretty good,” said Samuel. “If they would have had me over there, they could have counted on at least one turnover. But I’m happy to be over here with the Falcons.”
