"Sometimes you have to blame yourself," Samuel wrote. "You can't try and always point the finger at someone else."
Nine days ago, Samuel helped the Falcons (6-0) remain unbeaten when he returned an interception 79 yards for a touchdown in a win over the Raiders.
After the game, he let it be known that he already had his sights set on coming to Philly.
"They love me," Samuel said. "They're going to scream when I come out [of] that tunnel. Philly, y'all better scream when I come out [of] that tunnel!"
For some reason, Giants running back Ahmad Bradshaw thought he was an offensive coordinator on Sunday. And coach Tom Coughlin didn't seem to like it.
In the third quarter of a wild game against the Redskins, Bradshaw could be seen screaming at Coughlin on the sideline. And Coughlin yelled right back.
"I was just saying, 'Run the ball,' " Bradshaw said Monday. "A lot of my emotions kick in, and I just want to help my team win as much as possible."
The Giants won, thanks to a 77-yard scoring pass from Eli Manning to Victor Cruz, which might be why Coughlin was willing to overlook Bradshaw's insubordination.
To an extent.
"There's never been any question about Ahmad Bradshaw's toughness, his intensity level," Coughlin said. "You want people to recognize that fact, but sometimes you do have to control yourself and control your emotions . . . and he's working on it."
