Asante Samuel is on top of the world right now. His team is undefeated coming off a relaxing bye week. His former team, the Philadelphia Eagles are in crisis mode, and Samuel even took a moment to take a twitter jab at Andy Reid after Juan Castillo was fired.  According to the guys over at Crossing Broad, Samuel declined the customary weekly conversation with the opposing team’s media.

Eagles should look for mismatch against Falcons' hybrid 4-3...

I'm no football genius...but I do subscribe to the old Wee Willie Keeler truism from baseball, which states "hit 'em where they ain't".... To me the Atlanta Falcons (6-0) are most vulnerable on defense when they line up in that hybrid look where they switch from a 4-3 look to a 3-4...that's when my own switch goes off in Michael Vick's helmet which...
