Atlanta Falcons cornerback Asante Samuel believes that Philadelphia Eagles head coach Andy Reid snubbed him during the post-game hand shakes, according to Pro Football Talk:

"Andy Reid, why didn't you speak to me?" Samuel told reporters, via CSNPhilly.com. "What did I do to you man? I got nothing but love for you Big Red. . . . He wouldn't speak to me, man, can you believe that? As happy as I am, he wouldn't even tell me ‘Great game Asante, I love ya man.'"

In Sunday's game against the Eagles, Samuel recorded two pass breakups in the Falcons' 30-17 victory on Sunday that pushed the Falcons to their first 7-0 start in team history. The Falcons pass defense held Eagles quarterback Michael Vick to 191 passing yards and one touchdown on 21-for-35 passing. The Falcons rushing defense held the Eagles' rushing attack to 92 total yards on 24 carries. Running back LeSean McCoy led all Eagles rushers with 16 carries for 45 yards and a touchdown.

The Eagles' record dropped to 3-4 on the season, only a half-game ahead of the last-place Washington Redskins in the NFC East. The Eagles next play next Monday night against the New Orleans Saints at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. The Falcons put their 7-0 record on the line next week against the Dallas Cowboys on NBC's Sunday Night Football.
