Playoff spot is clinched let the guy get his shoulder injury more rest. He’ll be needed as close to full strength come playoff time so sit him so more.

Asante as bad as the Falcons need you back, I pray that you are healthy enough to return to lineup……The Falcons sorely missed your leadership, your skillset and passion you bring to the game….

Don’t fake a healing, receive it in Jesus name….

Falcons on three, DOMINATE!!!!!

@Tidog I totally agree but I think we need him if he can go for this one. We havent sealed the #1 spot. This is also a playoff type game and we MUST atone for that debacle last January. We win this one…sit him vs DET and TB

I agree he needs the rest but we will need him sunday so the defense can pick of Eli 2 or 3 times, ala, what we did tp Brees/Manning and Rivers.

Glad to have him back. Now all we have to worry about is Dunta. At least one side of the field will be secure.

I still don’t think we can beat the Giants, even if ASamuel gets a pick6.

Giants – 28
Falcons – 18

WE USED TO BE THE MIGHTY, MIGHTY FALCONS!

Man, Asante has been a BEAST since coming here. I have no idea what the Eagles were thinking trading him. He is hands down the best corner in the NFC. Him and Brent Grimes are going to be good.

Great to have Asante back this week, he makes a huge difference in our secondary.

Its good to have Asante back in the line up. I predict the defense will win the game against the Giants.

[...] On the bright side, corner back Asante Samuel, who has been bothered by a shoulder injury, said he’s ready to return. [...]
