Following their crushing 42-10 loss to the San Francisco 49ers, Micah Parsons and the Dallas Cowboys are hoping for a chance at redemption. However, Niners star Deebo Samuel had a cautionary message for the Cowboys, suggesting that a rematch might be even worse for them. During an interview with FanDuel’s “Up & Adams” podcast, Samuel remarked, “I don’t think [the Cowboys] want to see us again. It might be a little bit worse.”
This statement came in response to Parsons calling out George Kittle for wearing an anti-Cowboys shirt after scoring three touchdowns in the game. The Cowboys’ defensive standout, speaking on his own podcast, “The Edge with Micah Parsons,” criticized Kittle for making the situation overly personal, saying, “I just feel like he’s making it way more personal than it had to be. Kittle’s my guy, but I’m going to say this: Laugh now, cry later. We got something for that, just trust. If we see them again, just trust. … You gonna make it personal? We can make it personal.”
Samuel further elaborated a day later, revealing that the 49ers paid attention to some of the Cowboys’ pregame remarks before responding to Parsons. He stated, “It was already personal before the game started, and now — 42-10 — I don’t think you want to see us again.” He added tauntingly, “It might be a little bit worse. I don’t know what we’re ‘trusting.’ He’s talking about ‘we trust,’ you know, ‘laugh now, cry later.’ I mean, I don’t think y’all wanna see us again.”
The 49ers’ dominant victory over the Cowboys not only showcased their superiority but also marked the most lopsided win in the storied rivalry between the two teams. For the Cowboys, it was a bitter blow, especially since they had been eliminated by the 49ers in the playoffs in the past two seasons. Adding insult to injury, Kittle revealed a shirt proclaiming “F— Dallas” underneath his jersey while celebrating in the end zone, reminiscent of former 49ers linebacker Gary Plummer’s similar gesture during the 1994 NFC Championship Game against the Cowboys.
A Lesson in Emotions and Hype
Reflecting on the game, Samuel acknowledged the significance of the contest due to its historical context. He remarked, “We look at every game the same, but this game was a little different [because of] the history. But we can’t get too hyped or let our emotions get the best of us before the game.”
This blowout victory solidified the 49ers as Super Bowl front-runners after the first month of the season, with Samuel highlighting their versatility and depth in his interview. Responding to questions about Kittle’s exceptional performance, Samuel emphasized the unpredictability of their offense, saying, “You never know who’s gonna go off. You never know whose day it’s going to be.”
As the Cowboys lick their wounds and process their humbling defeat, the prospect of a rematch with the 49ers looms in the back of their minds. Micah Parsons and his teammates are eager for another shot at proving themselves against San Francisco, but Deebo Samuel’s warning suggests that the Niners are not to be taken lightly.
While the outcome of a potential rematch remains uncertain, one thing is clear: emotions will run high, and personal vendettas may come into play. Micah Parsons made it clear that the Cowboys are prepared to make it personal if necessary, while Samuel and the 49ers exude confidence in their ability to deliver an even more devastating blow.
Only time will tell if the Micah Parsons and the Cowboys will get the chance to redeem themselves against the formidable San Francisco 49ers. Until then, they must evaluate their mistakes, learn from them, and prepare for any future encounters with a resilient and determined mindset.
