Deebo Samuel blasted the Philadelphia Eagles and their fans in a recent interview, saying the San Francisco 49ers were easily the best NFC team last season.
Cutting right to the point, Samuel is tired of the trash talk from the Eagles and their notoriously avid fan base.
Zion Olojede of Complex posted a wide-ranging interview with the 49ers wide receiver. Samuel saved his harshest comments for the Eagles, who defeated the 49ers, 31-7, in the NFC Championship Game earlier this year in Philadelphia.
Samuel contends the outcome would have been different if the 49ers had not been dealing with so many injuries.
“We lost because we played with 10 people,” Samuel said. “I ain’t going to keep going on about what could’ve happened and what would’ve happened but yeah, it would’ve definitely been a different outcome.”
How does Samuel feel about the Eagles?
“(My) most hated team is the Eagles right now. 100 percent,” Samuel said.
When Samuel was reminded he once claimed the Los Angeles Rams were his most hated rival, he doubled down on the Eagles.
“I mean, hey man, we done wiped the Rams so many times,” Samuel said. “All the trash talk coming from the Eagles fan base and the players, you just get tired of that.”
Samuel’s fighting words riled Eagles nation.

@19problemz the players and fans are talking???? Bro nobody said anything until you opened your mouth and started whining about not having a qb because YOUR team can’t pass protect. Fans should just shut up when someone’s crying and whining? Get over yourself
