Both Brock Purdy and Josh Johnson suffered game-ending injuries in the loss.

“We lost because we played with 10 people,” Samuel on the Eagles beating the 49ers in the NFC Title. “ 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 (if healthy).

Philadelphia had a solid free agency period and then won the draft. Samuel’s not feeling that either.

See, I ain’t know nothing about that until you just said something. I barely watched the draft to be honest with you. I seen a couple of guys that I knew get drafted and at the end, I was just off of it. How we move as a team, we don’t even pay attention to the noise. It’s just crazy how you just said this and I ain’t heard nothing about it. We just a team that’s focused on the things we have and the people we have in our building. We’re not worried about the outside noise.

With Jalen Ramsey’s trade and the Rams retooling, Philadelphia is now the most hated team.

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.

Deebo on best cornerbacks he's faced

Samuel left Darius Slay and James Bradberry off his list.

I can go back to my rookie year, a healthy Marshon Lattimore is legit. Pat Surtain II is straps. You got Ramsey when he really wants to play. Jaire (Alexander) from the Packers, he’s solid.
