49ers’ Deebo Samuel on facing hostile Philly crowd: “No stadium is as loud as ours”

Jan 25, 2023 at 2:50 PM--



The noise at Levi's Stadium has been off the charts in the San Francisco 49ers' two playoff games. This past Sunday's win over the Dallas Cowboys was the team's last home game, though. Next, they will travel to Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia to face the top-seeded Eagles.

While Levi's Stadium crowds have been impressive this season, there are certain venues famous for their loud, passionate fans. Lincoln Financial Field is one of them. One 49ers player didn't sound too concerned about the Philadelphia home crowd.

"We know it's going to be loud," wide receiver Deebo Samuel told reporters on Wednesday, "but no stadium is as loud as ours at the end of the day. They're at home, NFC Championship. They're going to be all riled up. We don't really too much feed into all that because we put the pads on and just go to work."

It's good that Brock Purdy had an opportunity to play in another loud road environment—at Lumen Field against the Seattle Seahawks in Week 15. That should better prepare him for the noise during this weekend's elimination game.

"We'll do the same thing we did that week," head coach Kyle Shanahan said of preparing Purdy for Lincoln Financial Field. "That was huge because that was our first game, really all year, that it was that important, and Brock kind of had experience with it. So it was great to have that, especially with us going to Philly.

"I remember us talking about that, that week, that we needed that. We needed that [experience] in case we ended up in the NFC Championship at Philly, and we got that. And I'm very fortunate that we did, and I feel we're good to go."

The 49ers will crank up the pumped-in noise during practice this week, as they did leading to that Seahawks game on a short week.

"He knows what to expect. He knows how we do it," Shanahan said of Purdy. "And we'll give him reps at it all week, but he got it ready on just a Wednesday when he played Thursday (against Seattle), so it won't be an issue this week."

49ers mailbag: Will 49ers sign a big-name QB? Who will Ryans take to Houston? Who will replace Ryans? Will Garoppolo return?

There's not much going on with the San Francisco 49ers. Not unless you count these small bits of news: Brock Purdy has a UCL tear and will likely need surgery. If they can repair the tendon, he'll need six months of recovery time (which is August). If they have to replace it (Tommy John surgery), it will be decidedly longer. Trey Lance says he is three to four weeks from being cleared to practice, and that he should be 100% by OTAs (organized team activities). Trent Williams was walking with a crutch on Tuesday (locker cleanout day) and had a walking boot on. But he said it's nothing. DeMeco Ryans was hired to be the next head coach of the Houston Texans. Tom Brady announced his retirement Wednesday morning, so those hoping he
