49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel and Dolphins running back Raheem Mostert got into a small war of words, but Samuel might have the last laugh.

Spats are always a fun thing over the course of an NFL season, and there’s never a shortage of some smack talk between players, rivals and teams.

Even former teammates.

Prior to the Week 13 game between the San Francisco 49ers and Miami Dolphins, former Niners running back Raheem Mostert offered up some excellent bulletin-board material in an interview with Go Long’s Tyler Dunne in which the now-Dolphin tailback threw plenty of shade against his former employer.

In addition to questioning how the Niners viewed his season-ending knee injury way back in Week 1 of the 2021 season, Mostert threw his former team under the bus with a number of key statements, including gems like, “We have way better talent here. It’s going to get spooky. [in Week 13]” and “We have a quarterback who can actually sling it.”

Mostert later walked back his comments a bit and stated he wasn’t calling out San Francisco or now-out-for-the-season quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo.

Regardless, right away, wide receiver Deebo Samuel took an exception to Mostert’s initial remarks:

The 49ers defeated Mostert and the Dolphins 33-17 on Sunday, and Mostert was largely quiet against the NFL’s top rushing defense, accruing just 30 yards on seven carries.

Samuel, meanwhile, had only 5 yards rushing on four attempts but added 58 more yards on six catches. And with the Niners pulling off the win, Samuel got the last laugh.

He didn’t hesitate to remind Mostert of it either.

When it comes to talent, one could make the argument for both San Francisco and Miami. We don’t need to go there.

But Samuel did, quoting Mostert’s comment about which team had the most talent and which team ultimately won in a postgame interview with KNBR 680:

“I thought they had the best talent,” Samuel said when asked about Mostert’s comments before the game. “Oh, my bad.”

Mostert might end up being a little quiet after his team lost to Samuel and the 49ers, yet the Niners are certainly going to have their share of challenges with Garoppolo done for the year after exiting the game with a foot injury.

Still, at least according to Samuel, San Francisco has more talent.
