Quotable: Asante Samuel Explains the Eagles

Quotable: Asante Samuel Explains the Eagles

Asante Samuel summed up the Eagles in only a way that he could following yesterday's pitiful loss to the Cardinals.

"We’re so good, but we keep losing. It’s like we’re so
good, but we’re so bad," Samuel told Martin Frank.

Asante is pretty spot on as usual. Except for the whole "so good" part.

Your Philadelphia Eagles, ladies and gentlemen.

Defense scores twice as Villanova beats Lafayette

EASTON, Pa. -- Tanoh Kpassagnon returned a fumble 25 yards on the first offensive play of the game and Jeff Steeb returned an interception 45 yards to close the scoring and Villanova defeated Lafayette 31-14 on Saturday night.

Aaron Forbes, who ran for 111 yards on 11 carries, scored on a 3-yard run in the third quarter to put the Wildcats (3-1) up 24-14 after the Leopards (1-3) had rallied after falling behind 17-0.

Javon White's 1-yard plunge made it 17-0 for Villanova but Lafayette's Drew Reed hit Yasir Thomas for a 14-yard score just before halftime. Reed connected with Tim Vangelas on a 19-yard score early in the third quarter.

Lafayette finished with four turnovers with Rob Rolle picking off two passes, including one he returned 100 yards for a touchdown that was nullified by a penalty.

Villanova had 378 yards of offense, 238 on the ground while Lafayette had 342, 272 through the air.
