Never one to shy away from verbal jousting, Falcons cornerback Asante Samuel on Tuesday spiced up the subplot for the Falcons meeting at Philadelphia, his former team, on Oct. 21, with Twitter posts in response to the Eagles firing of defensive coordinator Juan Castillo. After the Eagles traded the four-time Pro-Bowler in the offseason for a seventh-round pick, Samuel took exception to comments written in a blog post on the Web site of The Philadelphia Inquirer that said Eagles coach Andy Reid believed Samuels skills were in steep decline. Perhaps emboldened by an interception that he returned 79 yards for a touchdown in the Falcons 23-20 win over Oakland Sunday, Samuel used his verified Twitter account (pick_six22) to point a few zingers in Reids direction: Im just saying... Aint no decline over here and Sometimes you have to blame yourself. You cant try and always point the figure sic at someone else. This will be the fourth meeting in four seasons between the two NFC opponents...

Never one to shy away from verbal jousting, Falcons cornerback Asante Samuel on Tuesday spiced up the subplot for the Falcons meeting at Philadelphia, his former team, on Oct. 21, with Twitter posts in response to the Eagles firing of defensive coordinator Juan Castillo.

Asante Samuel Seems to Take Jab at Andy Reid in Wake of Juan Castillo's Firing

Asante Samuel must be having himself a good laugh over the current panic in Philadelphia. The Eagles shipped Samuel to the Falcons during the offseason for just a seventh-round pick, which the Philadelphia Inquirer's Jeff McLane said at the time was due to the cornerback falling out of favor with head coach Any Reid, who reportedly thought Samuel was in "...

The Falcons are 6-0, but there are concerns

The Falcons enter the bye week as the only undefeated team in the NFL at 6-0. The bad news? The Falcons have limped into the bye week with close wins over Carolina (1-4), Washington (3-3) and Oakland (1-4). While the Falcons should be very happy to be undefeated, they understand that the mission is far from accomplished and the team still has a lot of issues to workout if they want...

Bryant’s legs lifts Falcons over Raiders

The Falcons extended their 2012 record to 6-0, the best in franchise history record, with a third consecutive comeback win in the fourth quarter over the Oakland Raiders 23-20. This time the heroics rested on the leg of Matt Bryant for the second time this season. Bryant hit a 55-yard field goal to win the game with a second left on the clock. It marked the longest kick during his...

Odds favor Falcons to capture NFC

Many didnt see it coming two years ago when the Falcons went 13-3 and earned the NFCs top playoff seed for only the second time in franchise history. This time, its different. Only six weeks into the season and in the midst of their bye week, the Falcons appear as if home field advantage throughout the playoffs is virtually theirs to lose. They stand to reap the benefits of starting...

Falcons seek to improve run offense, defense

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. With his team remaining the final unbeaten of the 2012 NFL season, Falcons head coach Mike Smith took the podium on Monday and engaged in much hand-wringing over the state of his teams ability not only to run the ball but to defend the run. Yet if last year serves as any kind of historical example in the modern pass-happy NFL, it would be that defending the...

Falcons are 6-0, but all is not well in Birdland

The bye week could not have come at a better time for the Atlanta Falcons. While they are the league's only undefeated team and are 6-0 to start the season for the first time in franchise history, they have some glaring issues -- and they know it. After letting middle linebacker and tackling machine Curtis Lofton leave in free agency, the Falcons have a leaky run defense...

Falcons savor NFL's last perfect record during bye

Then there was one. The Atlanta Falcons (6-0) are the NFL's last unbeaten team, giving them plenty to gloat about going into a bye week. Coach Mike Smith is giving his players the entire week off, saying it's a good time for everyone to ''disconnect.'' Even with a perfect record, Smith said Monday there's much for his team to work on, most of it evolving...

Sunday Wrap Up

Falcons def. Raiders: The Falcons really have to give up this obsession with last second wins. While the Falcons should certainly be happy about being 6-0, the fact that they have barely won games against the Panthers, Redskins, and now the Raiders. This is the also the first week that Matt Ryan actually hurt the team for a decent section of the game. However, you have to give...
