One of the overlooked story lines in Sunday’s game between the Falcons and Eagles came from the fact that Atlanta cornerback Asante Samuel was facing his former team from Philly for the first time.
After the game, the always-loquacious Asante had something to say about his former head coach, Andy Reid.
Reid snubbed him.
“Andy Reid, why didn’t you speak to me?” Samuel told reporters, via CSNPhilly.com. “What did I do to you man? I got nothing but love for you Big Red. . . . He wouldn’t speak to me, man, can you believe that? As happy as I am, he wouldn’t even tell me ‘Great game Asante, I love ya man.’”
Samuel addressed the topic several times in his comments to the media.
“Can you believe that?” Samuel said. “He didn’t speak to me. Like it’s my fault, like what did I do to you? You know what I meant? I think it was the way we was dancing out there; it got to him a little bit.”
If Reid didn’t care for Samuel’s dancing, Samuel’s comments may get to Reid a little, too.
“The difference between these teams?” Samuel said. “I think it’s the coaching. We got really good coaching, we run the ball.”
Reid has bigger fish to fry than worrying about what Samuel has to say. Still, it’s more proof that things are quickly unraveling for Reid and the Eagles.
