If you asked a member of the San Francisco 49ers which team they hate the most, you would likely expect them to answer with one of their rivals from the NFC West.
That isn’t the case for Deebo Samuel.
During an interview with Complex, he was asked a question about Jalen Ramsey leaving the team that he hated most, the Los Angeles Rams.
In response, Deebo revealed the Philadelphia Eagles are actually the team he hates most.
When it comes to the Philadelphia Eagles, there is no love lost from Deebo Samuel 😳

“I mean it’s cool. A lot of people think we got beef but in real life, that’s my dog. That’s my partner but on the field, there ain’t no friends. It’s cool, I was happy to see he was excited to move on and go to a different team but going back to your question, (my) most hated team is the Eagles right now. 100 percent.”
He explained that his answer changed to the Philadelphia Eagles because of all the trash that has been talked after the 49ers’ loss in the NFC title game.
“I mean hey man, we done wiped the Rams so many times. All the trash talk coming from the Eagles fan base and the players, you just get tired of that.”
He also added that he believes things would have ended very differently if it weren’t for the injury to Brock Purdy.
“100 percent. 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.”
Since the game happened, the 49ers have made it clear they believe the injury played a huge part in the loss and for whatever reason, fans have claimed that is an excuse.
It definitely had a huge impact on a team that had already lost 2 other quarterbacks last season and had to turn to Josh Johnson.
The 49ers and Eagles are both expected to be among the best teams in the NFC again in 2023, so Deebo Samuel and the 9ers could get a chance at revenge this year.
