One week away from finally seeing Jimmy G vs Tom Brady, and now this. That match up is just never meant to be.
Now we'll never know who the better quarterback is.
Would be curious how fully healthy Jimmy would stack up against sunset years Brady.
I haven't watched a lot of Brady this year but from comments I read he isn't really the problem
The biggest problem, by far, is play calling and Byron Leftwich refusing to try play action early in games. Brady hasn't been his usual pinpoint accurate self, but he's currently down most of last year's starting OL (Marpet retired, Cappa went to the Bengals, Jensen started the year on IR, and now Wirfs is out. Donovan Smith is the last man standing, and he is regressing pretty heavily.)
1st and 10 being immediately converted into 2nd and 9 something like 70% of the time is the biggest problem.
I don’t understand that sort of thing. Why is Tom not being given the keys? I thought that was the case when Arians was there? The o line injuries are a huge deal but having schematic issues too with Tom Brady just seems crazy to me. Is letting Tom run things not realistic?
Even Arians relied upon people beating defenders 1v1, rather than schematic brilliance. Worked when you have 3 WR1's, elite O-line, and a TE GOAT candidate, but it's not working with the current roster
I've watched a few Bucs games. Coaching and o line seem to be the main problem, both in the run game and the passing game. As for Brady, he can definitely still play, but he's also been kind of inconsistent at times.
FWIW he has 3051 yards, 14 TDs, 2 INTs, 66.2% completion% on 470 throws, and a 92.4 passer rating.
Its like seeing LeBron only have 25 pts 8 asissts and 5 rebounds and considering it a bad game, we got so used to how great brady is him having this kind of year is still better than most NFL starting QBs lol
"You did it on PURPOSE!!!"
brady gonna take his job
Damn , imagine this from Brock Purdy’s perspective. From the last pick in the draft to the QB of a super bowl caliber team his rookie year. Oh the perfect storm of bs that led him to this
When you're barely clinging to an NFL roster and they say always be ready, this is what they're talking about.
Pre-season: *fighting for roster spot*
*Gets #2 spot*
*Jimmy comes back, you're now #3 but not dressing*
*Trey goes down week 2, you're now #2 comfortably and dressing*
*You find a comfortable spot next to Kyle for the next 9 games*
*You get playing time and create a new position (ghostback), a stroke of genius*
*Jimmy goes down against a hungry Dolphins team*
*Your team is Super Bowl or bust*
*Flashbacks of mishaps from Iowa State run through your head*
*Your time has come*
What is this new position?
Assuming it comes from his impeccable handoff against the cardinals. Brady wishes he had that power
Given another school in Iowa produced Kurt Warner it wouldn't shock me if Super Bowl win in Disney fashion happened.
The writers over at NFL HQ are already updating the scripts for the rest of the season.
No no, this is a blue mountain state reboot plot i literally can see it now
I can’t wait for Thad as the LB coach bc clearly he can’t pee clean enough to make the NFL
Just go wildcat, McCaffery or deebo can hit kittle
Putting an injury prone RB in at the 49ers cursed QB and RB positions at the same time. What could go wrong?
Two injuries can't occupy the same space at the same time- plot to Timecop I think it holds true in nfl
Bring Cam back to CMC.
Brock Purdy MVP campaign starts now.
He has a brother named Chubba. Feel like the parents sort of dropped the ball on that one
BIG COCK BROCK GONNA LEAD US TO THE PROMISE LAND BAYBEE!!!!
(oh god I'm so sad).
49ers never can get a break with all these injuries it is so fucked
Hey, don’t pun a man while he’s down.
Thanks for putting your foot down.
If there's a team that can handle losing two QBs, it's the Niners
Thanks man! Appreciate it even if you’re only a baseball fan.
I hate you
❤️ you bird dudes
Aww thanks buddy
Fuck not you
I am CRUSHED. I love Jimmy
Replacing the purdiest QB with the Purdiest one.
This is the comment I needed to see lmao
LOL. I told my buddies, "Jimmy is pretty, Brock is purdy."
The Purdy line is going to be a thing if they win the SB lol.
I don’t even give a fuck if he becomes a meme while being a capable starter. If an Iowa State QB becomes a viable NFL starter I’ll be over the moon.
Yep, this. Seneca made a mark in the league, Sage made a mark in the league but both as backups. For Brock to even have a chance is a dream come true.
Seneca Wallace started 14 games for the Seahawks, and 7 for Cleveland. He was fun to watch with the ‘Hawks.
I just went to go look up the numbers, they both actually started more than I thought (Sage started 12). Seneca's still probably my favorite player ever from ISU.
Watching [The Run](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i7gPOl_F8HQ) live was absolutely jaw dropping. Was on the southeast hill right where he ran in.
I also watched him absolutely score a game winning touchdown at the pylon against FSU down at Arrowhead, fuck those refs for calling him out in the pre-replay era.
Just finished watching the game and for a 7th round rookie that kid played out of his mind today. Miami pinned their ears back and suicide blitzed the shit out of him and he stood in and delivered enough balls to get us by.
Brock was a good to at times great QB for us at Iowa State. His last 2 seasons suffered A LOT from coaches calling games that did not put him in a good position to succeed.
Yeah that OC is thankfully fucking GONE.
Same. Unabashedly pulling for the 49ers from here on out.
That time traveler who called CMC to 49ers said Bills beat 49ers in the Super Boel this year. So expect a super bowl run with Purdy!
I had that as a future bet last season, time to run it back hope it hits and y’all win
Chris Berman ran it back like 30 years in a row.
I remember him breaking out that half-Niners, half-Bills abomination of a jacket every time they were both in the playoffs. I miss that goofball.
He's still alive lol.
RIP Chris Berman, what a legend.
Again, he is very much alive
RIP Chris Berman, I agree his impact was so big that it truly does feel like he is still alive
RIP in peace, Chris. We all love you and miss you
He'll be missed
RIP Wade Boggs
I can still hear him sometimes, it's like he's announcing from the afterlife
Ahem abomination. That jacket is a piece of art.
Oh it's going to be glorious.
Incredible. Awful injury luck
It's ridiculous. You guys were starting to look really good, and this happens. Even as a fan of a rival team, there is no solace in any of this.
I think there’s a world where Purdy steps in and plays like a vet game manager, and the Niners can get back on track. He can certainly throw quickly and with anticipation, but whether certain coverages will fool him into rookie moments remains to be seen
Drew Brees I believe you still got it in you man!
time for some felipe rios
no please we need him for our vacant OC position
He’s busy coaching his family youth soccer team
They should take a look at Streveler
Brees is jacked up from the lightning strike unfortunately
He really should
Welp, 2 of our QB's gone due to injury. Let's see what Brock has got.
12/21/22 : “Brock Purdy is out for the rest of the season with a broken pelvis from an off the field injury. This comes after 3 straight wins and 2 games with over 300 yds passing.”
Honestly what would happen after that?
Direct snaps to Christian and Deebo for the rest of the year
Probably a 9-8 team if we did that all year.
Cam Newton: you rang?
I heard Colin Kaepeenick is still available
I’ll take Fitzpatrick for some of that end of season magic.
Just tell Fitz its September and y’all got this
Man I can't believe its been like 7 years
That would somehow cause more controversy than Watson does these days.
Then we turn to, uh... *checks roster*
Jacob Eason. Oh god...
We just signed XFL / UFL / AAF legend Josh Johnson instead
Alex Smith, your redemption arc is now.
I thought he did really well today at least
Same here, I'm just hoping he does ok against Brady next week.
Having a D like that helps. It'll always keep you in the games at least, and your play calling is good enough to win close ones
and that might be the end of Jimmy G’s tenure with the 49ers
It’s a shame because he looked better than ever. I feel bad for him.
It's Jimmy G, he's always looked great, even when he's playing badly
He’s going out on a high, might actually be good for his value
Why? This is exactly what happened last year. He was coming off an injury and didn’t have any good offers because of his rehab.
He's getting surgery now instead of waiting half way through the offseason.
It’s too bad, he’s by far my favorite person on that team except for maybe McCaffrey
I’d say the Bucs lucked out next week, but they lost to Jacoby Brissett
Absolutely gutted for the guy. He was doing everything asked of him and playing like a top 10 quarterback, working his way towards a good contract next year.
well there goes that high
Tbf Purdy looked alright vs a good NFL team so maybe there is some optimism
yeah, he actually played best when he wasn't doing hero ball... if it can be snap 1-2-3 throw, maybe?
Tbf how many times have we seen a backup look good for short bursts? Niners are competing for a Super Bowl this year, not moral victories. This sucks ass for them. They needed Jimmy G.
What the fuck flair combo is that
It’s making my eyes bleed
I don't care what his reasoning is, that's absolutely atrocious
When that person picked such flair the thought process was "~~today~~tomorrow I when I wake up I shall choose violence".
They're a big fan of computer graphics
Yah I watched Nick Mullens look like a world beater before…
That's Nick "2nd Most Passing Yards in His First 16 Career Starts" Mullens to you, buddy.
Horrible way to end what was a great season for him.
Was easily the best he’s looked in his career the past 7 games, was playing at a great level. Fuck this sucks.
I’m pissed. No love from the football gods.
Damn. That possibly cost Jimmy a $100m deal next free agency.
Somebody will sign him but to a lot less money than had he stayed healthy.
Also: The NFC is a mess.
I hate that that will be his final moment as a 49er, at least last year he gave it his all and just came up short. This year’s not even on his terms
I'm a Jimmy guy and I've had a lot of arguments with people who claim he's not good...
But to be fair this is pretty fitting. Dudes a baller who just can't stay healthy. That's his whole career with us.
He will still get a big bag from any team that thinks they're a QB away from contending.
Garoppolo to the Yankees? Judge to SF?
He will get a bag, but the guaranteed amount of money will most definitely take a significant hit.
Significant. He’s been in SF for 5.5 seasons:
- 2017: made it through all 5 games healthy
- 2018: tears ACL in game 3
- 2019: healthy, his best year
- 2020: two ankle injuries, lost season
- 2021: plays through injury the entire back half of the year. Injuries stacked on injuries. Has to have offseason surgery
- 2022: again lost to injury
Who is going to give him a long term deal?
NFC is a massive hot mess. We still have someone that’s gonna win the Shit Mountain division!
He will still get his money, but I know he wanted a ring so bad with this locker room. Heartbreaking.
He's our only hope at QB now.
"I just wanted to let you know, we're all counting on you."
Aaaand he just got nailed in the backfield, he'll be out at least three days.
Anddddddd now I’m crashing down
Watch us defeat Brady and the Bucs next week and then proceed to lose all of our remaining games afterwards.
But yeah I don't think this has occurred to a playoff team since the 2014 Cardinals where Palmer and his backup Stanton both had season ending injuries. Oh yeah maybe the 2016 Raiders when Carr and his backup both had season ending injuries.
Watch you beat Brady, he gets cut, then signs with you guys for the rest of the season
Everyday, the Brady-9ers theory gets crazier and crazier
I thought it was silly every time it was suggested. At this point I have to ask if the universe wants it and we're just being stubborn
Oh, please. We haven't beaten a team and then immediately taken their best player since... *checks notes*, CMC.
Let's do it.
I would like that.
I guess that dude wasn’t joking when he commented “We will rally around a Brock Purdy and we will play good football”
“That dude” is certainly a way to describe Fred Warner
Was talking about [this dude](https://www.reddit.com/r/nfl/comments/zco8h0/highlight_purdy_throws_his_2nd_td_pass_of_the_day/iyxiqyl/?utm_source=share&utm_medium=ios_app&utm_name=iossmf&context=3) not Fred Warner dude I don’t know what he said lol
Trey injured, Jimmy G injured and a free agent. This is all setting up for Brady to the 49ers next season, isn't it?
Can we trade for him this week?
Brady is currently begging the Tampa front office to be cut
Not ideal for the 49'ers postseason.
Brock Purdy will be the first ever rookie QB to start a super bowl
Definitely the first every Mr. Irrelevant to start the SB lmfao
Fuck it we’re taking a Mr irrelevant to the playoffs
i am going to throw up
Brock Purdy was a 4 year starter and is a special competitor, he’s going to win a lot of games for SF.
The funny thing about his foot is that it's located on his cock
You don't see many Superbad references. Appreciate you bro
He has the sickest references, everyone knows that
Laughing through the pain
You scratch my foot, I’ll scratch yours.
Mr. Irrelevant about to go on a Super Bowl run??
I just feel terrible for Jimmy :(
Fitzmagic baby where are you
If Josh Allen had gotten injured on Thursday I think Fitz would have had to be physically restrained from rushing the field in full uniform
Such terrible luck with Lance and Jimmy G going down … could Brock Purdy be Tom Brady 2.0!?
Pass me the hopium. I need that tonight
Every. Damn. Season...
Why are the 49ers not allowed to finish a season with an healthy Qb...
What happens if something happens to Purdy? Do they get to hire another backup QB?
Signings of unrestricted free agents can happen any time of the season.
Someone kidnaps the Bucs GM and forces them to cut Brady
Mr. Suddenly Relevant
Mr. Brought-into Conversation
Mr Backup sb-Champion
There goes my 49ers/Dolphins Super Bowl prediction
Purdy looked good. Aggressive shots one target.
Good under pressure
I hate it for jimmy man but the niners aren’t dead yet with Kyle calling the plays and that defense
I am now a 49ers bandwagon fan!!
The 49ers are legitimately cursed. They’ve consistently had one of the best rosters these past couple of years and it just won’t come together
Mmm let’s say the past 10 years when we had Jim Harb we get so close then get fucked at the end. I mean you how that feels falcons man
Poor Jimmy, man!
Next year Lance returns. He could have led them to a SB again :/
This sucks from just a general NFL fan perspective.
Fuckin A, sorry SF bros
Man, brutal news for us SF fans. Injuries this year have been nuts :(
Wow, the 49ers are legit down 3 QBs. And just won one if the last 6 games with the 3rd.
Can Brock Purdy finish his games at .500?
With that run game and Kyle calling plays they can be competent
A lot of "fans" think Kyle is the problem. Not one of them.
It's crazy people think that. 1st time HC, and boom! SB appearance, only losing to a godly Mahomes/Reid led team. Then NFCCG only to lose to a motivated Stafford and McVay.
Fan bases can be the worst some times
The 49er run game is kind of a myth this year. It hasn't been all that great. We've been a pass first team since starting this win streak.
Luckily a lot of those passes are 2-5 yarders that our ridiculously talented skill players turn into big gains.
He came from the future.
Imma go vomit.
Feels so bad for jimmy.
Damn. I'm curious to see how the rest of their season turns out. Their backup QB did purdy good.
Backups can often make noise in the first game or two. Mike White just struggled against the worst passing defense in the league.
This situation is interesting because a suspect rookie QB, who is the reigning Mr. Irrelevant has basically just been handed the keys to a fucking Ferrari. He's got an elite defense to fall back in, a reliable veteran kicker to bail him out when his drives stall, and a ton of targets on offense that excel at YAC. How good can that team make a suspect QB look? Or has the QB position become so important that a bad QB will torpedo an otherwise loaded roster?
Tom Brady demands a trade to the 49ers
*I want to die pic*
Awful for Jimmy G, but selfishly excited to see Purdy. I loved Brock Purdy in college. Early in his career I thought he flashed 1st round ability, he just needed to develop more and knock off the hero ball and boneheaded plays. That didn't really come to pass and he deservedly fell in the draft, being drafted so late you almost never actually get a real shot. He is getting his, and I hope he runs with it.
This dude is so unlucky it's kinda sad honestly. This has to be his price for being handsome ngl being made of glass.
Dude has 300 pound behemoths landing on his ankles/feet. Same happened to Trey. It’s not they’re made of glass, it’s that really large dudes landing on your ankles will do that regardless of who yo are.
hello darkness my old friend
My soul hurts for jimmy, he put it all out there this season.
