Asante Samuel is shooting everyone – including his ex.
After a few days of trading barbs on Twitter with Sauce Gardner and Darelle Revis, the former defensive back is now in Bill Belichick’s sights.
When asked by CBS if Belichick is the greatest coach in NFL history, Samuel explained how he feels about the Patriots icon.
“Absolutely not,” Samuel he told CBS. “are you crazy? Look at his record without Tom [Brady]. You must win without Tom. One thing I’ve learned about being great is, you have to be great in different situations.
“It was all Tom, I was there, I saw him, it was Tom.”
“Everyone knows it, Tom knows it,” Samuel added. “But he won’t confess because he wants to be politically correct. That’s why I’m here. Emma is telling the truth… I’ve been there, I’ve seen it, I’ve faced it, and that’s what I do.”
Samuel, who played 11 seasons in the NFL and five years with the Patriots, was a four-time Pro Bowl quarterback and two-time New England Super Bowl winner.
Brady and Belichick have won six Super Bowls together throughout their entire tenure as a New England quarterback, and the duo is widely considered the best coach-quarterback pairing ever.
Now, Belichick may be on the hot seat after several disappointing seasons.
After Brady left the Patriots after the 2019 season for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the retired caller has since won a Super Bowl and led Tampa Bay to the playoffs three times.
The Patriots have only made the postseason once in the post-Brady era.
Samuel also stirred controversy recently when he called out Gardner, Gates’ little boy, for being overrated.
“New York media will take your career to another level,” Samuel wrote on Twitter.
“The tweet literally says these were corner rankings by players, executives, scouts, coaches… I’m trying to figure out why NY Media keeps talking about it,” Gardner replied.
Revis, an all-time Jets cornerback who would be a Hall of Famer, jumped as well.
“Stop being a hater when it comes to rising young stars in the cornerback position,” Revis tweeted.
“Be angry at the voters who never thought you were out of work.”
