49ers Star Deebo Samuel Drops Honest Take on NFC After Davante Adams Heads to the Raiders

The NFL offseason doesn’t take a break. After a hectic week of free agency (after an improbable week of trades), the Green Bay Packers shocked everybody by trading away talented wide receiver Davante Adams to the Las Vegas Raiders in a blockbuster deal.

The talent from the NFC continues to shift lower than the AFC, and San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel was quick to take note of that. The landscape of the NFL is shifting by each day, and Samuel’s comment shows that things keep getting easier in his conference.

The NFC took a bit hit following Adams’ trade to the Raiders. One person who seems excited is Samuel, whose 49ers team was just a couple of plays away from a Super Bowl trip.

Sure, Rodgers returned, but Adams leaving the Packers leaves a giant hole on offense for the reigning NFC North champions.

The Dallas Cowboys traded away Amari Cooper to the Cleveland Browns. Russell Wilson went from the Seattle Seahawks to the Denver Broncos. Chandler Jones went from the Arizona Cardinals to the Las Vegas Raiders, and Von Miller signed a monster deal to join the Buffalo Bills.

We could do this all day.

The AFC is loading up with all sorts of talent, and the NFC has lost a ton of notable names since free agency began.

Khalil Mack also got traded from the Chicago Bears to the Los Angeles Chargers, and the list keeps on going.

The NFC is still a tough conference, but the 49ers remain as one of the Super Bowl favorites

Now, let’s not forget: The NFC is still loaded. The Los Angeles Rams just won Super Bowl 56 and added Allen Robinson. The Cowboys are still a threat, and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers got this guy named Tom Brady to return (no big deal).

These odds came out before Adams’ departure, so it isn’t surprising that Green Bay’s Super Bowl chances took a hit.

Surprisingly, it wasn’t too big of a hit. That’s what happens when you have the reigning NFL MVP at QB.

As for Samuel’s 49ers, they have terrific chances of making a Super Bowl run. They were just short of defeating the Rams in the NFC title game, and everybody is waiting patiently for Trey Lance to take over as the starting QB.

Depending on how the rest of free agency plays out, there is a good shot that the 49ers are one team with pretty favorable Super Bowl odds.

The AFC is supreme and is loaded — especially at the QB position

Good luck, that’s all you can say.

After Deshaun Watson chose to go to the Cleveland Browns, the AFC became even more stacked at the QB position. Derek Carr isn’t there in the list above, although he should be — especially after the Raiders secured Adams as his No. 1 target in a Fresno State reunion.

This just isn’t fair for AFC teams. No wonder Rodgers wanted to remain in Green Bay.

The NFC seems extremely top-heavy going into 2022, although who knows what happens when the season begins. Will the 49ers feed off of Lance and win another NFC title? Will the Rams go back-to-back?

Or maybe Brady or Rodgers get back to the Super Bowl. The Buccaneers are loading up again, and Brady will surely be on a mission.

As for the AFC, nobody has the slightest idea. There will arguably be 10-12 teams fighting for a playoff spot, and the entire AFC West is a walking Pro Bowl team.

The power shift has happened, and the AFC rules over the NFC all day long.
