60 Max Power O:
Atlanta Falcons cornerback Asante Samuel appeared apoplectic over Andy Reid’s decision to ignore the ex-Eagle during a post-game handshake.
Samuel’s Falcons squashed the Eagles 30-17 at Lincoln Financial Field on Sunday in front of a disgruntled, comatose, Hurricane Sandy-ready crowd.
Following the game, Samuel rambled through an interview and wondered why his former coach dissed him moments after the game.
Samuel decided his easiest course of action was to pat “Big Red” on his “big belly” after Reid refused to acknowledge him.
The exuberant post-game interview by Samuel also included swipes at Eagles management. Samuel stated that the biggest difference between the 7-0 Falcons and Birds was coaching.
Of course, this was not the best of days for Reid.
Not only did he watch the Eagles lay down out of a bye week, fans chanted “Fire Andy” throughout the second half with the game hopelessly out of reach.
Coach Ried didn't speak to me after the game. Whoa! Its not my fault. #luv—

Meanwhile, Samuel was all smiles this week. Days prior to Sunday’s game, Samuel demanded Eagles fans cheer for him.
While they booed Samuel, the ex-Bird got the last laugh over Eagles fans and his frustrated former boss.

Eagles coach Andy Reid was noncommittal after Sunday’s loss when asked about the job security of Michael Vick. Vick said Reid is “obviously thinking about making a change,” but there was no confirmation of that from the head coach himself. “I’ll go back and look at everything,” said Reid. “I’m not going to sit here and make decisions right now. I’m going to go...
When you listen to as much Philadelphia sports commentary as I do, you start to hear the same narrative over and over.One of the more common phrases used in reference to Andy Reid’s 14-year tenure is “the definition of insanity: repeating the same experiment over and over again expecting different results.”At a disappointing 3-4, the future seems bleak for die-hard Eagles fans...
The "Fire Andy" chants were a bit more subdued Sunday, a product of approaching Hurricane Sandy rather than the product Philadelphia Eagles head coach Andy Reid put on the field in a 30-17 loss to the undefeated Atlanta Falcons.
This storm will pass by midweek. Reid's future here has a bit more staying power, although ownership has forecasted a regime change after...
The Philadelphia Eagles are facing a must win on Monday Night Football when they face the New Orleans Saints. It is that simple. Since they already fired defensive coordinator Juan Castillo, the Eagles are running out of people to blame for the mess once again in Philadelphia. In fact, the center of the blame shifts between Andy Reid and Michael Vick. One could bench the other and...
The quarterback and the coach alike have chosen to make it a topic for public conversation, so, here it is. Who should the Eagles start moving forward – Michael Vick, or Nick Foles? The logical answer is fairly straightforward, actually. However, there are many mitigating factors at play here.
I’m not sure I’m the right guy anymore Juan…
Week 8 Recap
The Eagles are in free fall and more changes could be on the way after Reid dropped a game after having the bye week. This just never happens. It was hinted that we could see Nick Foles sooner rather than later this season and we just get him next Sunday. Mike Vick said this after the game.
If there is anyone who can relate to the struggles Michael Vick is going through and the pressure he is under while playing for the Philadelphia Eagles, it’s Donovan McNabb. The Philadelphia media had its way with McNabb for years and there were times when the fans were worse. During an appearance on “NFL AM” Tuesday morning, McNabb defended Vick in the wake of reports that...

It’s funny: I am not angry over the 30-17 loss the Eagles suffered to the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday.
Well, I am upset that the Falcons scored on their first six possessions and held a 24-7 halftime lead. The Eagles made third-down stops, only to be overturned by penalty.
The Eagles could not stop the rain and wind, nor could they stop Atlanta quarterback Matt Ryan and the rest...
Donovan McNabb is familiar with what Michael Vick is going though. Having played as the quarterback of the Philadelphia Eagles for eleven seasons McNabb is familiar with some booing in his direction.
The expectations of fans and ownership have not been met with successs on the field this year. The Eagles are currently 3-4 on the season and lost for the first time after a bye in the...
