Brock Purdy has been the starting quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers since Week 13 of last season.
Despite initial skepticism, Purdy is leading the NFL in various key stats, including passer rating and completion percentage.
The 49ers have achieved an impressive 8-3 record under Purdy's leadership.
Purdy, at 23 years old, is in his first full season of regular playing time.
Teammates, including star tight end George Kittle, have praised Purdy's leadership and impact on the team.
Initially considered an afterthought, Purdy was the last player chosen in the 2022 NFL Draft.
Injuries to Trey Lance and Jimmy Garoppolo elevated Purdy to the starting role.
Purdy's tenure saw the 49ers on a 12-game winning streak until the NFC Championship Game.
The winning streak ended when Purdy suffered a UCL injury in his throwing elbow against the Philadelphia Eagles.
As the 49ers prepare to face the Eagles again, Purdy has a chance to prove himself as an elite quarterback beyond any doubts.
