Purdy is 49ers’ QB, Trey Lance a ‘mistake,’ says ESPN pundit

but brock purdy Stinker at Sunday’s NFC Championship Game San Francisco 49ers Philadelphia Eagles say he won’t be good enough to sacrifice starting quarterback job next year, former NFL player and current ESPN critic Ryan Clark.

On Friday’s episode of “First Take,” Clark was clear on two counts. First, Purdy earned the first nod, at least after going undefeated in his NFL title his games (maybe even after!). “There is no question about it,” Clark said. “…No matter what happens on Sunday, Brock Purdy is the uncontested quarterback going into next year.”

Clark noted that Purdy clearly outperformed Jimmy Garoppolo. He is more stable and shows more ability outside the pocket. And Clark made his second bold statement. In the Bay Area, the days of Trey his lance are long gone.

“Whether it’s Kyle Shanahan’s decision or John Lynch’s decision, they ultimately have to say, ‘We made a mistake with Trey Lance. If you were going to go to the NBA, if you were going to look for a guy with maximum sporting potential, you should have picked Justin Fields. As it is, as fate and destiny decide, in Mr. Inlevant, [they] I chose Brock Purdy. As of now, he doesn’t even know how to lose in the NFL. ”

Even just a few weeks ago, such statements were still considered outlandish. Lance, who in 2021 he was the No. 3 pick in the NFL Draft, is still 22 years old, and next season he will struggle to take away Purdy, who was the 262nd pick in 2022. . That means Clarke is right, as bizarre as it may sound. Lance’s future in San Francisco is certainly up in the air.

Sunday’s NFC title match starts at noon on Fox.
