San Francisco 49ers quarterback Brock Purdy sends out NFL warning ahead of Super Bowl debut

Only a hand-full of players in the NFL have caused the kind of debate that Brock Purdy has this season.

Depending on who you talk to, Purdy should either be named NFL MVP on Thursday night or he’s barely worthy of being the San Francisco 49ers starting quarterback.

But after a season in which he led several quarterbacking statistics and inspired consecutive fourth-quarter comeback playoff wins for the 49ers, he insists that he has earned everything that he has been able to accomplish this season.

Famously selected with the final pick of the 2022 NFL draft, Purdy has opened up on his journey from the Niners third-string passer to a Super Bowl starter.

“The keys weren’t just given to me or anything, it had to be earned,” Purdy said as per PFT. “Coming in Day One, just trying to learn Kyle’s system, his playbook, and earn the respect of my teammates.

“Over time I’ve been able to step into that role and be ready for my opportunity. At the same time, I have a lot of help around me, and it’s allowed me to develop, and I’m going to continue to develop with the help and the cast I have around me.”

Purdy has made obvious progress over the past two seasons and signed off with a warning for the rest of the NFL following a season which has seen him register a 113 passer rating and helm an offense that saw four players go over 1,000 yards from scrimmage.

He added: “There’s a lot more room for me to grow.”
