Pretty Sure We All Knew Asante Samuel Would Be Intolerable as an Ex-Eagle

Either via the inevitable twitter nonsense or a pick-6 the other way in Week 8, there are a few things that could be frustrating about Asante Samuel now that he's left the nest in Philly for the one in Atlanta.

Either via the inevitable twitter nonsense or a pick-6 the other way in Week 8, there are a few things that could be frustrating about Asante Samuel now that he’s left the nest in Philly for the one in Atlanta.

Yesterday, Asante got it started with a few jabs at the Eagles for sending him away, as well as essentially asking Falcons fans to get his back on twitter in the face of some hate by Eagles fans. Certainly a good use of time for all involved.

It didn’t appear to me as if Samuel had any real venom behind his tweets, instead they came off as some typical Asante trash talk. I enjoyed his mouthing off quite a bit when he was here. So I’m not going to hold it against him that much now that he’s gone.

Obviously, this is the definition of no big deal. Hopefully the same can be said on Sunday, October 28th…
