Asante Samuel Launches Preemptive Strike on Front Office

Someone needs to shut Asante Samuel up. Andy Reid tried – Samuel said Big Red put a gag order on him – but his tactics didn’t work. 

Yesterday, Samuel told Shady McCoy that “shit ain’t right.” 

Today, just two days after Reid’s supposed gag order, Samuel went all Vince Young at a strip club when talking about Joe Banner and Howie Roseman: [the quotes via, Grilled Reuben Frank, and Tim McManus]

“I think there’s a little power struggle around here."

"Sucks doesn't it? At the trade deadline for your name to just be flying around, and you're supposed to be the leader of the team?"


Really, cuz? Just shut up and play. 

Is he wanted?

"By Andy. A couple people upstairs might not want me, but who cares. They probably never played football. It's a business, they run it like a business, so they're going to do what they need to do. So they're upstairs playing with a lot of money, playing a little fantasy football, so they’re doing their thing." 


Oh holy shit. Player-front office skirmish. These always end well. I don’t know much about Banner, but I wouldn’t want to fight Roseman, he looks like a shifty son of a bitch. 

Somewhere (probably right in front of Asante), Les Bowen is punching Jeff McLane's head in an uncontrolled bout of euphoria.

  1. tackle someone you doosh-bag
    you’ve been trashed on ESPN and Peter King has singled you out for being a freeking matador
    you were the worst player on the field in the playoff game vs Green Bay – shut the fuck up –
    if anyone wantted you, you’d be gone aleady

  2. Asante really wants to mouth off like this? Banner and Roseman might want to have a Bowen-McLane type throwdown… but that would require Asante to actually hit something.

  3. He thinks that he’s “the leader of the team”???
    Too funny.
    Hey Asante – look behind you. If no one is following, then you aren’t leading anything.
    Have fun playing in Washington or Miami next season.

  4. Wow talk about absolutely crushing Asante here, guys.
    I wonder if you were crushing him this bad when he was picking shit off left and right. It’s not like he’s wrong for saying what he’s saying. He was in the mix to be traded from a 1-4 “dream team” because a younger DRC came to take his spot. I’d be fucking pissed too. If anything, the front office should be happy that Asante loves it here.

  5. Shut the fuck up and let your play on the field speak for itself.
    Fuck man, NBA and NFL players are such fucking prima donnas. You rarely hear about players bitching about possibly being traded.
    Shit pisses me off.

  6. I hate Samuel. Any body with two legs can do what he does. He still picks up a paycheck with the Eagles’ logo on it, doesn’t he? Shut the hell up dude.

  7. I have two legs and I couldn’t do what he does. There’s a reason why I’m a student and not a student-athlete…

  8. Not awesome on-field talkin’ of late from Asante.
    He can rant all he wants after, say, a pick-six against the crap-addled Cowgirls.

  9. Hey Samuel, STFU you punk! Quit belly-achin’ and try justifying your salary with those bonehead plays of yours, you tool!

  10. I am interested to see what the organization does about this. If you recall, back in 2009 they fired a gate employee for his posting on facebook regarding the organization letting Dawkins walk. Their explanation was that it made the organization look bad. Why should it be any different with Samuel?

  11. I.
    He’s is sooooo overrated by the clueless jerkoffs who watch this sport (most of America) and I said this before this season.
    Somebody ship this ego drunk bitch out with the next trash pick up.

  12. I guess I’m in the minority here, but Asante’s antics don’t bother me in the least. I figured this would happen after Nmamdi and DMC were signed, so his ranting doesn’t annoy me as he’s feeling unloved. Andy should’ve known this would happen too and either traded him before the season started or at the trade deadline. Now Fatboy Reid has a malcontent on his hands for the rest of the season. As for the rest of you guys, you should be angrier at Reid for letting this situation get this far in the first place by keeping Samuel.

  13. I don’t watch football, they should still have Bobby Hoying at QB, he was big n white

  14. Asante needs to realize the “trade” was more about Andy Reid trying to fix his personnel mistakes (linebacker) from a position of strength (corner). Both the other guys are younger and still have a percieved upside. I don’t know why he doesn’t get that or why he’s so upset about being traded away from a 2-4 team. I don’t believe that his anger stems from being on the trading block. There is some deeper issue with this guy.

  15. Chris Pronger is a fag…take that shit some where else man. I’m all for bashing these guys for being assholes and douchebags, but there’s no need for that racist bull shit. beat it you dope.
