Eagles lock media out of locker room

M. Vickoutsidelocker

Things have grown ugly in Philadelphia lately, in case you haven’t noticed.

Cornerback Asante Samuel’s only solution was to lock the media out of the team’s locker room.

“Media is too negative,” Samuel said via Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer.

Awesome.  This seemingly foolproof plan had only one problem: Samuel locked the door before all of his teammates, including Michael Vick, got back inside.

(Yes, we realize Samuel was messing around. His attempt included a putter and some rope.)

Once inside, Samuel made an important announcement: The Eagles are “are going to come out there swinging, fighting, and do our damn dizzle.”

We can’t wait to see what happens next week if the Eagles go to 1-5.

    Can they lock Juan Castillo out while they’re at it?

  2. jasku880 says: Oct 13, 2011 3:29 PM

    thats what happens when you name yourselves “the dream team”.

  3. We'reFineThere says: Oct 13, 2011 3:30 PM

    At least it’s nice to see Vick, Avant, and some other guy are putting in after hours.

  4. My Last Victim Escaped says: Oct 13, 2011 3:30 PM

    Asante pretty smart… guess the offense is downright offensive too.

  5. eagles83 says: Oct 13, 2011 3:31 PM

    Oh man I just owned myself…”Your”. Not “You’re”.

  6. hit2hurt says: Oct 13, 2011 3:31 PM

    Wow.. Is the “Dream Team” trying to run in their rooms and hide under their beds?! Mean, mean media!!! LOL

  7. silkyjohnson937 says: Oct 13, 2011 3:33 PM

    What does dizzle even mean?!

  8. richwolf42 says: Oct 13, 2011 3:33 PM

    Did Samuel play paddy cake with the media? because you know he can’t get tough and physical.

    Well do what you are over-paid to do and man up and actually win a game this week.
    All Star Heartless team!!

    Hey Washington the Eagles Circus is coming to your town Sunday and I think the outcome will be 52-14 Skins this time!! GOODBYE FAT MAN!!!

  9. Patriot42 says: Oct 13, 2011 3:34 PM

    I have been kidnapped for couple months and the last sports item I read was how the eagles were the dream team and was deemed for stardom and was to go undefeated this year what happened?

  10. osmocosmo says: Oct 13, 2011 3:34 PM

    Oh, the drama.

  11. dgforreal says: Oct 13, 2011 3:35 PM

    Priceless.

  12. hrmlss says: Oct 13, 2011 3:36 PM

    Wow! That sound you just heard was Philly imploding. Not the team, the Cities fans! They Might be the ones getting Andrew Luck.

  13. thetechnocrat says: Oct 13, 2011 3:38 PM

    Good! Maybe now we can hear about a few teams with 2 or 3 wins instead of 1. Their problems are the same as before the season began. O-line, Secondary, & Linebackers. Funny how ESBM and all the other media phreaks can’t seem to figure that out and move on to another team!

  14. jam412 says: Oct 13, 2011 3:39 PM

    I don’t understand why the media are allowed to hangout in the players locker room anyway. Maybe football players should be allowed to hangout in the bathrooms of media.

    Hey honey, can you pass me the shampoo? It’s right there behind Santonio Holmes’ schlong.

  15. schmitty2 says: Oct 13, 2011 3:40 PM

    Well gee Asante..is it possible the media is negative because the supposed Super Bowl bound team they cover is playing like crap??

  16. careerender56 says: Oct 13, 2011 3:41 PM

    HAHAHA Philly has become a full blow circus!

    couldnt happen to “classier” (Dream) Team

  17. jdreed68 says: Oct 13, 2011 3:41 PM

    I dont think the Media should be in the locker room anyway….Thats why they have press rooms….I never understood the locker room interviews.

  18. jackfnburton says: Oct 13, 2011 3:42 PM

    They should lock Vince Young out. He’s the tool who started this whole mess.

    And…when you smugly correct someone on their spelling, you will ALSO misspell something 90 percent of the time, 50 percent of the time.

  19. greymares says: Oct 13, 2011 3:43 PM

    I wish he wasn’t messing around i would like to see the players circle the wagons so to speak. how mant times do they need to answer questions like why do you guys suck. there is nothing a reporter can give me that I can’t see myself.

  20. donterrelli says: Oct 13, 2011 3:46 PM

    The real truth is that Samuel locked the door so Vince Young couldn’t run from the booing fans back to his granny’s house to hide under his bed again.

  21. Mr. Wright 212 says: Oct 13, 2011 3:48 PM

    COWARDS.

    They wouldn’t be doing this if they were 4-1.

    Eveyone’s got a plan until they get punched in the jaw.

  22. careerender56 says: Oct 13, 2011 3:52 PM

    Damn this “Dream Team” can’t implode fast enough!

  23. rayguyreturns says: Oct 13, 2011 3:59 PM

    Can the Eagles please send Nnamdi back to us?

    He doesn’t deserve this. Has anyone heard him complain? Didn’t think so.

  24. joegibbsisking says: Oct 13, 2011 4:09 PM

    As a Skins fan, I must say this buying a championship then team implosion is damned funny when it is happening to some one else.

  25. vadog says: Oct 13, 2011 4:17 PM

    What the heck is he talking about?? “Damn dizzle?”

  26. nomoreseasontix says: Oct 13, 2011 4:18 PM

    Dizzle? Really?

  27. riihab says: Oct 13, 2011 4:20 PM

    This just in Eagles players and coaches lock themselves out of the locker room. Head coach Andy Reid places the blame on himself and they can’t figure out how to get back in.

  28. nationalmediacansuckit says: Oct 13, 2011 4:22 PM

    This obsession with a 1-4 Eagles team by these media cats are worse than a school girl having a crush on the varsity senior QB. There are other 1-4 in the league right now and guess what they are………not good. Enough already.

  29. scudbot says: Oct 13, 2011 4:25 PM

    The Damn Dizzle Defense? Might work out better than Wide 9 slapped on a team who doesn’t have the LB personnel to make it work.

  30. lbdpatch says: Oct 13, 2011 4:29 PM

    Its really great hearing from deadskin fans. The last time the Eagles came to Washington they slaughtered the deadskins. Same defense without albert better Eagles offense. So It might just be 60-21 Eagles this year with the troubled Eagles defense. Landry ready to get punked again by DJax .

    After Sal Pal’s LIES from yesterday ,
    Can’t blame them, for kicking out the liars.

    the only funny thing about the “DREAM TEAM” moniker, some of the losers on this board like to use is:

    What you gonna do …When the Eagles beat the SNOT out of your team !

    We here just laugh and laugh …

    How good is your team ? .. when the EAGLES beat you down …. Cant wait for the season to develop.

    See you all in week 12.

    Oh wait… we will be here laughing on Sunday.
    the Eagles have nothing to lose from here.
    but when you lose to them … ROFLMAO !

    Go Shady . . .

  33. eigglesnosuperbowls says: Oct 13, 2011 4:41 PM

    Who will they lock-out after losing to the Redskins?

  34. howley1 says: Oct 13, 2011 4:52 PM

    Hey Asante… the solution is “less dizzle, more tackling”.

  35. carnboys says: Oct 13, 2011 4:53 PM

    They Can’t stop the run. so now they say it’s the media’s fought.

    What is next with the Dream Team.

  36. howley1 says: Oct 13, 2011 4:54 PM

    This just in Eagles players and coaches lock themselves out of the locker room. Head coach Andy Reid places the blame on himself and they can’t figure out how to get back in but they will look at the film and see just what went wrong. “I just have to do a better job”, said Reid.

    ————————-

    Fixed.

  37. suckitphilly says: Oct 13, 2011 4:59 PM

    Doing your “damn dizzle” is illegal in seven states.

  38. amanistumor says: Oct 13, 2011 5:01 PM

    But the all important question is….

    Did Andy Reid waste a timeout challenging where the keys were to get back in?

  39. 420hippy says: Oct 13, 2011 5:05 PM

    i wonder if vick was screaming no more locked doors!!!!

  40. blackdonnelly says: Oct 13, 2011 5:06 PM

    I can understand how this came out – the Philly media must be like hyenas surrounding a rotting carcass, which is a bad analogy to use in general but it may fit. It seems that the Eagles got themselves into this – only some solid play execution, defense and sticking to fundamentals (which should result in wins) will get them out of the “doghouse.” No pun intended.

    If they can’t beat the Redskins on Sunday I see no hope for this team, which is sad because they do have the necessary talent. Perhaps take a cue from Rex Ryan and shut up and play instead of self-glorification followed by defeat and disappointment.

    Man, I could go for a decent cheesesteak right about now…….

  41. Land Snark says: Oct 13, 2011 5:13 PM

    Great! I was hoping to read a few more posts on this thread about the “Dream Team” because we know that is original and totally not played out.

  42. lilrob10201 says: Oct 13, 2011 5:18 PM

    Why do people call the Eagles a dream team then talk bad about how they suck ? Are dream team suppose to be good ?So how can you call a team a dream team then call them sucky ? I swear these trolls are ignorant.

  43. patsandsox says: Oct 13, 2011 5:24 PM

    The Eagles and Jets should play a game to see who was the biggest over rated busts ;)

    I guess somewhere along the line you became a mean-spirited troll.

    Maybe you were one before you were kidnapped, though. Were you kidnapped before or after Bill Belichik cheated his way to three Super Bowl wins?

  45. east96st says: Oct 13, 2011 5:31 PM

    The Shoeman says: “What you gonna do …When the Eagles beat the SNOT out of your team?”

    1) Tough talk from a fan that never played a down in the NFL and will have no influence on ANY game EVER. 2) If they DO win, that means my favorite team and yours are 1-1 for the season 3) If they DO win, I’ll do what I have every time the Eagles won before, laugh that they will fall and fail in the post season yet again. Easiest bet in football. Bet against Philly in the playoffs. BTW- didn’t see you posting any tough talk when Philly lost to the Giants! I guess you’re a”tough guy” on Thursday and gutless coward on Sunday and Monday. Sounds about right for the typical Philly troll.

  46. o0omorriso0o says: Oct 13, 2011 5:45 PM

    Seriopislu guys get a life. The Eagles could be 5-0 right now. They beat them selfs. But this week is probably the week where all you haters get some humblepie. I see the Eagles really going after Washington HAAAAARRRRDDDD. And this time I do not think we will be nice and let off the gas for washington late in the 3rd quarter… This will be a blowout!!!

  47. deadmanwalking47 says: Oct 13, 2011 5:45 PM

    last time the skins went to philly,they knocked dog killler out in the 1st quarter,and then they beat the eagles and kolb like dogs! anytime you iggles fans want to see a superbowl trophy i’m sure the skins,giants,and cowboys would be more than happy to let you see theirs! closest thing philly will ever get to the super bowl trophy is seeing everybody else’s!
    time for dirty 30 to lay out jackson,maclin,and anybody else who comes over the middle!

  48. jamrho5 says: Oct 13, 2011 5:55 PM

    what i cant wait for is all these haters comments when the eagles win the nfc east, and i want some of the old michael to come out and tell u all about it, then andy reid to clear his throat and tell u all to suck it because hes forgot more about football than any one of u ever knew, cue tony yayo…….THIS ONES FOR ALL MY HATERS

  49. nickynick04 says: Oct 13, 2011 6:05 PM

    I am happy to announce that the Dream Team IS Not going to win a Super Bowl again this year….take that you Loud Mouth Eagle Fans

  50. lbdpatch says: Oct 13, 2011 6:10 PM

    Deadmanwalking47 is a true idiot because what happened when Philly came to washington. The biggest ass whooping in NFL history!!! Same Washington defense without fat Albert. Rex and Beck together couldnt hold Vick’s Jock.

  51. suckitphilly says: Oct 13, 2011 6:20 PM

    there is NOTHING funnier than an Eagles fan calling other people “haters” when their team is 1-4. all you do is hate!!!

    do I hear 1-5? CAN’T WAIT!!!

  52. The Shoeman says: Oct 13, 2011 6:26 PM

    **************************************************************

    thats the point !

    the Eagles have had winning years..to make the playoffs.

    So you may bet against them ,, but they are in almost every year.

    So…whats your story …

    We won a Playoff game 20 years ago.

    its the ignorant..who cant see how sad that is.

  53. jagerbmb says: Oct 13, 2011 6:39 PM

    They should lock Andy out of the cafeteria and the concession. stands

  54. 5xchamp says: Oct 13, 2011 6:41 PM

    They really don’t need to go into the locker room, just look at their record & watch these bums play on Sundays .
    Now that they paid everyone except bum ass Jackson , NO ONE ON THIS TEAM IS HUNGRY !
    Except fat ass Reid …..

    Well at least THIS time he was locked out instead of locked up.

  56. razedeyebrow says: Oct 13, 2011 6:49 PM

    Samuel is a lying POS. Nobody locked the media out, Andy Reid got stuck in the door after All-You-Can-Eat Thursday at the local Sizzler and NOBODY could get in or out.

  57. Canyonero says: Oct 13, 2011 8:07 PM

    Who’s Vick going to complain to if the press isn’t there??

  58. robcypher says: Oct 14, 2011 4:38 AM

    It’s the Drizzeam Tizzeam!!!

    Hey Asante… the solution is “less dizzle, more tackling”.
    *************************************************
    I can’t believe how many times I’ve seen Samual give up on a play, he completely shy’s away from tackling.

    What a disgrace.

  60. moochzilla says: Oct 14, 2011 7:54 AM

    Why don’t they man up and stop all contact with the media?

    Like giving up their sponsorships and endorsements. I mean, if we’re all so evil and against them…why should they lower themselves to meet their adoring fans at the local Forman Mills?

    Does it trouble anyone else that a jouneyman, nobody, D- player like Kelce is the spokesman for the team? And he seems to lack basic English skills to boot?

    This would be like Eric Brunlett lading the Phillies onto the field.
