Samuel says Reid snubbed him after the game


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  “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.

  1. Do these players ever get tired of crying the blues. Who cares if the coach who just had it handed to him hunted out an X player. Get a real life!

  2. still can’t believe we only had to give up a late rounder to get him. INCREDIBLE pick up. Part of the reason we’re in the top 5 in scoring defense.

  3. Why should an NFL head coach say anything to a low life cornerback that has an IQ of a rock and hardly attended any classes in college and can barely speak English?

    This clown should be selling peanuts outside of the stadium…and saying PEANUTS YAWL.

  4. It gets worse than the excerpts you see here.

    As a Pats fan, it’s an excellent illustration of why I’m glad this piece of trash in no longer in New England.

  5. Atlanta does not run the ball. They attempt to run the ball because Michael Turner is putrid. I think he had like 23 carries for 60 yards. That is turrible (Charles Barkley voice)

  6. Good GOD!!!!!!! I am sick to death of today’s players whining about “respect”!!!!!!

    Hey Aasante, let’s look at what you said when you wanted out of Philly:

    “”I wanted to be a Falcon, so we made it work,”

    You RESTRUCTURED YOUR CONTRACT to get this deal done, REMEMBER????????

    Where was YOUR respect for Reid THEN, huh?????

    I don’t blame the fat guy for avoiding you, moron!

  7. Asante – Andy lost his son this year. Can you get over yourself? He might be/should be fired but get over yourself dude. Hope you are one and done in the Playoffs so you can shut up.

  8. Is it the position or what? Put Samuel together with DeAngelo Hall of the ‘Skins and you have non-stop drivel emanating from two of the largest rock heads of all-time. Hope they have both saved serious cash during their soon-to-be-over careers, because they are TOTALLY unemployable in the real world.

  9. Just shut up and play football. You’re paid to play, talking is a reason to deduct you check.

  10. Of course he’s bitter; at the end of the year, only one of them will still have a job.

    Reid has never been good with kids.


    OK … that’s just brilliant.

  12. I’m surprised Asante had the energy left to try and track down Reid, after all the running away from tackles he did during the game…

  13. Clueless Asante Samuel – Coach Reid just lost his son and may be about to lose his job. Seriously – you’re an adult now. Do you really not yet understand that the whole world isn’t thinking about or worrying about you all the time? He’s got a lot of things on his mind and you are not one of them.

    This is wrong but really funny.

    It sure was. He dissed Reid’s parenting skills and Asante’s maturity in a 7 word sentence.

    On another note.

    “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.”

    I sure hope so. Looks like that Man can eat some pretty big fish.

  15. Reid has a turnover machine for a QB.#1 Vick is not a starting QB,a backup at best,Reid is has lost he mojo,and should retire,he clearly is burned out.

  16. skoobyfl is an idiot. asante.. never liked the guy either. this just proves another example why. all reid needs to do to turn this teams fortunes around is set vick down, put foles in his place, and the rest will take care of itself.

  17. Seriously people, the comments about Reid and his son aren’t even remotely funny, it’s classless and deplorable.

    Say whatever you want about his coaching, that’s well deserved. But the man just lost his son, have just a shred of respect.

  18. So, in the mercenary NFL now, the head coach of a team that just lost, is EXPECTED, to seek out on a crowded field, each and every FORMER member of their team and thank them for being on the team that just beat them? Non-issue, unless fat Andy spat in his face or something. I Hate Andy, Philly, and the E-girls, but Asante is just being the diva he has always been. Why else was he traded away for a pox ridden cow, or something along that line…..

  19. He might be an idiot but as a pats fan id take asante back over any scrub we have in that swiss cheese secondary….as least he will take one back for a pick 6 once in awhile, the pats secondary just plays 20 yards off every WR and routinely lets one grab a 50 yard TD (from the worst QBs in the league)

  20. Also like the Pats fan acting like he’s glad Samuel is gone..have you SEEN your secondary lately? Once Brady is gone, your team is toast. The defensive genius Belichek can’t draft defenders to save his life…his starting WRs at corner won’t look quite as smart when he doesn’t have an offense putting up 40 a game.

  21. “Reid has bigger fish to fry than worrying about what Samuel has to say.”

    I take it this isn’t a figure of speech; Andy Reid literally had bigger fish to fry.

  22. Asante, he had to get to Golden Corral. The all you can eat buffet offer ended at 5 yesterday.

  23. I’m a Falcon fan, but some of my good friends like the Eagles, and I just felt bad for them yesterday.
    Vick is no longer the amazing accelerating wonder. He has lost more than a step. If he keeps taking hits like that, he’ll be like Muhammad Ali in ten years. Reid’s days are clearly numbered. He’ll be lucky to finish this season. It it too bad. I thought he was one of the NFL’s best coaches.

  24. I love all the ignorant Philly comments. The falcons owner had the decency to speak with Vick prior to the game because he has class. Something I wouldn’t except Philly fans to understand
