On Sunday afternoon, quarterback Brock Purdy and the San Francisco 49ers improved their record on the 2023 season to 9-3 with a resounding 42-19 road win over their NFC rivals, the Philadelphia Eagles. Purdy and the offense consistently lit up the Eagles' vaunted defensive unit throughout the afternoon in what was a rematch of last year's NFC Championship Game, which the Eagles ended up winning after a slew of 49ers injuries.

The sustained success of the 49ers this year has caused some to wonder whether Purdy might find himself in MVP discussions for the 2023 season as the campaign reaches its home stretch, and one person who is fully supportive of that notion is none other than Purdy's 49ers teammate, offensive swiss army knife Deebo Samuel.

“My boy is number one [in the MVP race] right now, and it ain't up for debate,” said Samuel on the Up & Adams Show. “…You've got to just keep stacking games, stacking days, stacking weeks. We've got to go out here and continue to make plays for him, and I think he'll get the job done as far as the MVP conversation, but I don't think that's his ideal goal as far as something that he really wants to accomplish right now. I think at the end of the day, as a whole, as a group, as a team, we want to be standing there at the end of the year holding the Lombardi Trophy.”

If the 49ers continue to play like they did against the Eagles, it's certainly not hard to envision that goal coming to fruition.
