[QUOTE]In Response to Re: Asante Samuel comming back to Patriots? : I think we all know Asante isnt coming back, but why take shots at him? Did he personally tell you that he doesnt like winning? For someone who tries to control the board you sure do make some puzzling comments. What makes you ASSUME he doesnt like winning? He obviously has always won because his career has been in N.E. and Philly who have never posted losing records while he was there. He left N.E. because he could get more money and was still on a winning organization and the Pats havent gone to a SB since he left, so tell me again why he doesnt like winning? Cause he doesnt like tackling? SO I guess Deion didnt like winning either? Gimme a break, think before you write Rusty...

Okay, I'll bite: Why does he deserve derision?
Answer: Because if you can blame anybody more than any other players for the one loss in the 2007 season, you can blame Samuel.
He was suppsed to make that play on the Miracle Catch, not Harrison. Harrsion rushed in to make the play because Samuel was out of position.
Samuel also dropped what would have been the game-clinching INT on that go-ahead drive of the Giants.
And Samuel was supposed to help Hobbs multiple times in the game because Hobbs was playing riddled with injuries, including a torn labrum. Yet Samuel was constantly off the reservation. So Hobbs got repeatedly burned, including on the Burris TD to win the game for NY.
Hobbs was fingered as the goat, but now knowing what we know about all of Hobbs' injuries, and seeing how Samuel abandoned his responsibilites, why on Earth would we want such a selfish, uncoachable player for the Pats?
