No one in Philadelphia on Sunday afternoon was happier about the Falcons’ victory over the Eagles at Lincoln Financial Field than Asante Samuel. Not Matt Ryan. Not Julio Jones.
You’ll be shocked to know that Samuel chose to act a fool while being interviewed in the locker room following the game, delighted over the beating his new team handed his former organization. To be precise, Samuel called it a “good, old-fashioned ass-whopping.”
We know. We saw it.
Samuel also stated that Andy Reid refused to speak to him (the best decision Big Red made all day), and that there wouldn’t be the “Fire Andy” talk if Samuel was still on the Eagles roster.
In other words, he was being Asante.
You can read the full transcript of his comments here via CSNPhilly and watch the video above.
Now let us never speak of this man–or this game–ever again. Alright, fine, we’ll talk a little more about the loss and Todd Bowles’ horrific debut as the team’s defensive coordinator because I guess we have to.
