Steve Spagnuolo on Atogwe
"What I remember is every time he was on the football field, he was making a play," Spagnuolo said. "He has a knack for creating turnovers. You guys will see that. He’s one of those guys, and when I say this, you’ll know exactly what I’m talking about, the great ones in this league can tackle and punch the ball at the same time. They do it every time they tackle. No. 20 there in Philadelphia, Brian Dawkins, used to do it all the time, right until he finished in Denver, and O.J. does the same thing. He’ll create turnovers, he’ll make plays, and more than anything, he’s a great leader."

Paul Grasmanis – I loved Paul as a backup DT in the early Reid years. He was disruptive and productive. What caught me off guard is that he played here for 6 years. In the first 3, Paul played in 46 games and had 9.5 sacks, a good total for a backup DT. In the next 3 years, injuries were an issue and Paul played in just 8 games. Still, just being on the roster for 6 years is pretty impressive for a guy who was a grinder/oveachiever type.
