Purdy Leads 49ers Comeback Effort Despite Tough Packers Defense

“I think early in the game there were just moments where I was in control and I lost control,” Purdy said. “Their defense did a good job, played softly, kept everything in front of them, so it took away the shot.”And as a quarterback, you have to be efficient and control. And this is how I got there.

The O-line did a great job, guys did a great job of getting open and we found a way.”Shanahan outlined some of the problems the 49ers offense faced. The Packers applied pressure up the middle that affected Purdy’s pace, footwork, tracking and accuracy.

One glaring miscommunication occurred on a play where wide receiver Ray-Ray McCloud appeared open on third-and-10 deep in the fourth quarter.”He (McCloud) went off the charts (on a route) and Brock threw it in rhythm,” Shanahan said. “So these things came out without a doubt.

“These were not easy circumstances for the quarterback. Green Bay’s Jordan Love also had more trouble on the other end.Love completed 21 of 34 attempts for 194 yards. He threw two touchdown passes, but also made the only two turnovers of the game with two interceptions.


Linebacker Dre Greenlaw came up with both.Despite struggling in the passing game, the 49ers took over with 6:18 to play and narrowly trailed 21-17 when Packers rookie Anders Carlson missed a 41-yard field goal.One of the key plays occurred when wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk caught a 10 yard gain on 3rd and 5.”They had really tight coverage on B.A and Brock threw a great low ball to B.A,” Shanahan said.

“It’s really hard to hit and BA fell and got it.”Purdy picked apart the Packers defense during the run of the game. After a 17-yard pass to Chris Conley, none of Purdy’s carries gained more than 10 yards.”At the end of the day, I think I was able to just get through the progression and get to the inspection effectively and move the chains and stay up and not fall behind,” Purdy said.


“Apparently we got a third and a B.A. was clutch and played a great game. You need that all the time.”With Purdy at quarterback in the regular season and playoffs, the 49ers are 21-5 since he took over for Jimmy Garoppolo last season.

Purdy’s rushing record includes a loss in the NFC Championship game a year ago against the Philadelphia Eagles when he attempted just four passes due to an elbow injury..”Brock made some big plays in that game and missed some,” Shanahan said. That’s all you could ask. .for..
