Reid has confidence in 49ers QB Purdy’s ability to stay in control

Andy Reid, the Super Bowl-winning coach, shared his admiration for San Francisco 49ers quarterback Brock Purdy at the NFL Annual Meeting in Orlando, Florida. Despite having Patrick Mahomes as the best quarterback in the game, Reid was impressed by Purdy’s performance in Super Bowl LVIII. While Mahomes led the Kansas City Chiefs to victory, Purdy showcased his skills and potential as a quarterback.

Purdy, who was the final pick in the 2023 NFL Draft from Iowa State, earned the starting job with the 49ers due to his strong performances. San Francisco traded Trey Lance to the Dallas Cowboys after Purdy showed promise as a starter in his rookie season. In his first full season as the starter, Purdy had an impressive showing, finishing fourth in league MVP voting and setting a franchise record with 4,280 yards passing.

Reid praised Purdy’s abilities, noting his field awareness, accuracy, timing with receivers, and calm demeanor on the field. Despite being drafted late and facing criticism early on in his career, Purdy has proven himself as a talented quarterback with the ability to lead his team to success. In Super Bowl LVIII, Purdy had a solid performance, throwing for 255 yards and one touchdown with no interceptions.

Although the 49ers took leads twice in fourth quarter and once in overtime before ultimately losing to Kansas City Chiefs by a touchdown score of 31-20., Mahomes led Kansas City to their third Super Bowl title in five seasons. The loss was tough for both teams but it highlights Purdy’s potential as a top-tier quarterback in the league moving forward.
