The Brock Purdy quarterback debate continues and there seems to be a new development every week.
While some continue to debate his place among NFL broadcasters, the second-year quarterback has dispelled the notion that he can’t come back to win games after back-to-back wins over the Green Bay Packers and Detroit Lions in the playoffs.
FOX Sports’ Jay Glazer joined NBC Sports Bay Area’s Laura Britt for an interview Wednesday on Super Bowl Radio Row, where he was asked what aspects of the 49ers’ game could present problems for the Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl LVIII Sunday at Allegiant. Stadium.
“The physical aspect,” Glazer told Britt. “A lot of these guys are a street fight. And you know what, let’s stop talking about Brock Purdy and what kind of quarterback he is. He’s a winner, enough ‘game manager’ (talk), he’s a winner.
“And now we’ve also learned, in the second half, that he’s a terror. So you might think you’ve got him tied down in the first half and you’re not. He’s a lot more than what everyone says he is. We’re a really physical team with a quarterback who is absolutely unflappable.”
Purdy did not play well for most of San Francisco’s divisional round victory over the Packers, but led the eventual winning drive that resulted in a Christian McCaffrey touchdown with 1:11 left in the fourth quarter. Purdy then followed up his resilient performance against the Packers by erasing a 17-point deficit in San Francisco’s NFC Championship Game victory over the Lions.
While some continue to label him a “game manager,” it is obvious to Glazer and many others that Purdy is simply a winner and continues to deliver when it matters most.
