49ers’ Purdy Gears Up for Playoff Redemption with Seasoned Confidence

The San Francisco 49ers enter this 2023 playoff with a quarterback who is no longer a rookie in the postseason. A little over a year ago, Brock Purdy made his freshman Wild Card debut against the Seattle Seahawks and had just five regular seasons before that.

 

Fast forward to today, Purdy has three playoff games and a full season as the starting quarterback is a bit different, only last year I was still trying to somehow find my way,andquot; Purdy said I was released at the end of the year, so every week I was still trying to play well, learn who I am as a quarterback and get more familiar with playing in the system.

Those are all the things I had on the table last year and then I tried to win every week and finish this team.andquot;Purdyand#039; three playoff games now serves as a good reminder of the intensity and emotion of postseason play.

 

The first game was kind of tight, just making every play, not trying to turn the ball over, but at the same time stopping plays, winning and doing what it takes to win andquot; Purdy said. Those were things I had to learn, and when you watch the film, you go back to the feeling of last year and the first playoff game.

 

This year, the 49ers have a first-round bye against the Green Bay Packers, a team that has won seven of its last nine games, including a major upset of the second-seeded Dallas Cowboys on Super Wild Card weekend.

In this second playoff game with Purdy, his teammates trust their quarterback more than ever. He is the only one of the eight quarterbacks left in the playoffs who was not a first-round pick.”Goodness” is a savior of life. We went to the lottery,  Tackle Trent Williams said. As good a player as he is, he’s an even better guy. Heand is an even better person, a better teammate. I’m very proud of him and hope he continues on his path and shows people that draft status is what happens on draft day. What happens after that is up to you.
