Eagles’ Fletcher Cox criticizes Deebo Samuel after 49ers’ Super Bowl loss

In the aftermath of the San Francisco 49ers' defeat in Super Bowl 58, Philadelphia Eagles defensive lineman Fletcher Cox took to Instagram to criticize wide receiver Deebo Samuel, posting, "Keep the EAGLES OUT CHO MOUTH BOE."

He continued, "I still got some you ain't got. Ya!! I been holding this one in son!!!!!"


Cox was part of the Eagles' Super Bowl win over the New England Patriots during the 2017 season. The wait for Samuel continues after two unsuccessful attempts.

The tension between the two players seems to have simmered since their teams last met 10 weeks ago, with the 49ers convincingly defeating the Eagles 42-19. Cox's social media jab suggests that Samuel and the Niners have been on his mind for quite some time.

While it's been 10 weeks since the two teams played, with the 49ers routing the Eagles by a score of 42-19, Cox's social media jab suggests that Samuel and the Niners have been living rent-free in his head for quite some time.

In a recent interview, Samuel was asked about the potential rivalry between the two teams, to which he responded, "I consider rivalries close games. We ain't going to talk about that no more. That's over with."

Despite the Eagles' late-season stumble following their defeat against the 49ers in Week 13, they managed to secure a playoff berth, only to exit in the Wild Card Round with a loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

49ers DC candidate is brutally honest about team's Super Bowl defeat, Wilks firing

By David Bonilla
Feb 29

Kansas City Chiefs defensive backs coach Dave Merritt clearly has no qualms about speaking his mind. He is a candidate to replace former San Francisco 49ers defensive coordinator Steve Wilks, who was fired following the team's Super Bowl defeat against the Chiefs. Wilks spent just one season with the 49ers. Merritt recently participated in a radio interview on "The Sports Show" and attributed at least part of the blame for San Francisco's crushing defeat to head coach Kyle Shanahan's offense. "Their offense went 3-for-12 on third down," Merritt said, per Niners Wire. "Our offense went 9-for-19, but if your offense

Five things the 49ers must do this offseason to return to the Super Bowl

By Marc Adams
Feb 24

The San Francisco 49ers are no strangers to coming up just short of winning the Super Bowl. And neither are their fans. Now that the offseason has begun, the 49ers will look to reload and try to get better, as challenging as that may be. Teams that lose the Super Bowl sometimes struggle the next season. Go back to the 2020 season and you can see some of the evidence. After falling short in Super Bowl LIV, the injury bug bit the 49ers hard, and San Francisco finished the season with a 6-10 record, good for last in the NFC West. Now the 49ers need to find a way to not allow that to happen in 2024. While some recent Super Bowl losers haven't struggled the way the 2020 49ers did, only the 2018 New England Patriots have returned to the Super Bowl the year after losing

Rapoport: 49ers expected to address Brandon Aiyuk contract extension after free agency

By David Bonilla
10 hrs

The San Francisco 49ers' tendency to sign their star players later rather than sooner may persist this offseason. Many teams are closely monitoring the developments regarding Brandon Aiyuk, waiting to see if the 49ers might entertain trading their young wide receiver. The team's previous contract extensions were typically finalized around the start of training camp, or, as was the case with defensive end Nick Bosa last year, just before the beginning of the regular season. The 49ers aren't expected to begin extensive work on Aiyuk's deal until after the free agency frenzy subsides. After the 49ers' Super Bowl defeat, when asked if he hopes to remain with the team, Aiyuk was noncommittal, responding,
