One week away from finally seeing Jimmy G vs Tom Brady, and now this. That match up is just never meant to be.


Other_World

Now we'll never know who the better quarterback is.


Kiran_Stone

Would be curious how fully healthy Jimmy would stack up against sunset years Brady.


Ferngulley26

I haven't watched a lot of Brady this year but from comments I read he isn't really the problem


MaximumZer0

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.


hreterh

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?


Masterzjg

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


OutrageousOcelot6258

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.


y1ppz

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


silverfox762

"You did it on PURPOSE!!!"


Cuppieecakes

brady gonna take his job


Cautrica1

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


rinanlanmo

When you're barely clinging to an NFL roster and they say always be ready, this is what they're talking about.


joe_broke

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*


FoghornLeghorne

What is this new position?


MikeHocksbig112

Assuming it comes from his impeccable handoff against the cardinals. Brady wishes he had that power


PapaSquirts2u

[Oops](https://youtu.be/mg_xCqqfHbI)


CTeam19

Given another school in Iowa produced Kurt Warner it wouldn't shock me if Super Bowl win in Disney fashion happened.


Ninjakitty07

The writers over at NFL HQ are already updating the scripts for the rest of the season.


StrokeGameHusky

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


sgtbird

Just go wildcat, McCaffery or deebo can hit kittle


charging_chinchilla

Putting an injury prone RB in at the 49ers cursed QB and RB positions at the same time. What could go wrong?


sgtbird

Two injuries can't occupy the same space at the same time- plot to Timecop I think it holds true in nfl


HeyDudeImChill

Bring Cam back to CMC.


Gripe

Oh ffs


SquadPoopy

Brock Purdy MVP campaign starts now.


cheerioo

He has a brother named Chubba. Feel like the parents sort of dropped the ball on that one


danieldcclark

BIG COCK BROCK GONNA LEAD US TO THE PROMISE LAND BAYBEE!!!! (oh god I'm so sad).


LookPastGhosts

49ers never can get a break with all these injuries it is so fucked


pennant_fever

Hey, don’t pun a man while he’s down.


AeroTire

Thanks for putting your foot down.


ProjectTitan74

If there's a team that can handle losing two QBs, it's the Niners


wintermute916

Thanks man! Appreciate it even if you’re only a baseball fan.


ProjectTitan74

I hate you


TheCrispiestBoi

❤️ you bird dudes


aiiye

Aww thanks buddy


tspanguluri

Fuck not you


PandaSoap

I am CRUSHED. I love Jimmy


Beginning_Fig6914

Replacing the purdiest QB with the Purdiest one.


sendo1209

This is the comment I needed to see lmao


HeySeussCristo

LOL. I told my buddies, "Jimmy is pretty, Brock is purdy."


---SPIDER-MAN---

The Purdy line is going to be a thing if they win the SB lol.


Nubras

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.


ProfCedar

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.


ApeShifter

Seneca Wallace started 14 games for the Seahawks, and 7 for Cleveland. He was fun to watch with the ‘Hawks.


ProfCedar

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.


Fugacity-

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.


rinanlanmo

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.


Ternader

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.


johnyahn

Yeah that OC is thankfully fucking GONE.


iowastatefan

Same. Unabashedly pulling for the 49ers from here on out.


SweetToothKane

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!


jchavez9723

I had that as a future bet last season, time to run it back hope it hits and y’all win


Neto34

Chris Berman ran it back like 30 years in a row.


Beginning_Fig6914

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.


bobgodd2

He's still alive lol.


HammeredandPantsless

RIP Chris Berman, what a legend.


finefornow

Again, he is very much alive


el_lonewanderer

RIP Chris Berman, I agree his impact was so big that it truly does feel like he is still alive


penpointaccuracy

RIP in peace, Chris. We all love you and miss you


DolemiteGK

He'll be missed


EaglesPvM

RIP Wade Boggs


Shawn_1512

I can still hear him sometimes, it's like he's announcing from the afterlife


Legndarystig

Ahem abomination. That jacket is a piece of art.


Coley54Bear

*when


---SPIDER-MAN---

Oh it's going to be glorious.


HansBaccaR23po

fuckingplz


Easy-Priority-2703

Incredible. Awful injury luck


Redditor_Since_2013

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.


george_costanza1234

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


howcanilose

Drew Brees I believe you still got it in you man!


worldrunning

time for some felipe rios


gregCubed

no please we need him for our vacant OC position


big_red_160

He’s busy coaching his family youth soccer team


ryanino

They should take a look at Streveler


paultheschmoop

Brees is jacked up from the lightning strike unfortunately


saulgoodman445

He really should


Zorseking34

Welp, 2 of our QB's gone due to injury. Let's see what Brock has got.


goldybear

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.”


ohnoguts

Honestly what would happen after that?


Professional-Bread59

Direct snaps to Christian and Deebo for the rest of the year


Big_Stick_Nick

Probably a 9-8 team if we did that all year.


[deleted]

Cam Newton: you rang?


iisdmitch

I heard Colin Kaepeenick is still available


ohnoguts

I’ll take Fitzpatrick for some of that end of season magic.


Randylikesbeer

Just tell Fitz its September and y’all got this


OccupantMalevolent

Man I can't believe its been like 7 years


JayMerlyn

That would somehow cause more controversy than Watson does these days.


the_dan_man

Then we turn to, uh... *checks roster* Jacob Eason. Oh god...


TheCleanRhino

We just signed XFL / UFL / AAF legend Josh Johnson instead


Ferrarisimo

Alex Smith, your redemption arc is now.


Hybr1dThe0ry

I thought he did really well today at least


Zorseking34

Same here, I'm just hoping he does ok against Brady next week.


cannot_walk_barefoot

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


[deleted]

and that might be the end of Jimmy G’s tenure with the 49ers


slappymcstevenson

It’s a shame because he looked better than ever. I feel bad for him.


Party_Wolf

It's Jimmy G, he's always looked great, even when he's playing badly


cjackc

He’s going out on a high, might actually be good for his value


212temporary

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.


MyDogWatchesMePoop

He's getting surgery now instead of waiting half way through the offseason.


ianthebalance

It’s too bad, he’s by far my favorite person on that team except for maybe McCaffrey


albundy66

I’d say the Bucs lucked out next week, but they lost to Jacoby Brissett


fliptout

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.


HandSack135

well there goes that high


sonfoa

Tbf Purdy looked alright vs a good NFL team so maybe there is some optimism


HandSack135

yeah, he actually played best when he wasn't doing hero ball... if it can be snap 1-2-3 throw, maybe?


The-Implication-0

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.


sweetbabyje_sus1

What the fuck flair combo is that


[deleted]

It’s making my eyes bleed


juiceAll3n

I don't care what his reasoning is, that's absolutely atrocious


Pit_of_Death

When that person picked such flair the thought process was "~~today~~tomorrow I when I wake up I shall choose violence".


Datpanda1999

They're a big fan of computer graphics


ApolloKid

Yah I watched Nick Mullens look like a world beater before…


DayOldTurkeySandwich

That's Nick "2nd Most Passing Yards in His First 16 Career Starts" Mullens to you, buddy.


varnell_hill

Horrible way to end what was a great season for him.


AnAppariti0n

Was easily the best he’s looked in his career the past 7 games, was playing at a great level. Fuck this sucks.


slappymcstevenson

I’m pissed. No love from the football gods.


constantlymat

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.


UnhealthyCheesecake

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


rinanlanmo

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.


Firstolympicring

He will still get a big bag from any team that thinks they're a QB away from contending. Aka, NY


ThreeLeggedParrot

Or NY


__the_alchemist__

Probably NY


PeteF3

Garoppolo to the Yankees? Judge to SF?


DukPep

Deal.


constantlymat

He will get a bag, but the guaranteed amount of money will most definitely take a significant hit.


BigBrownDownTown

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?


SiphenPrax

NFC is a massive hot mess. We still have someone that’s gonna win the Shit Mountain division!


kellybobellyhtown

He will still get his money, but I know he wanted a ring so bad with this locker room. Heartbreaking.


DegraciasEh

Jesus Christ.


fisticuffs32

He's our only hope at QB now.


Xemr0n

"I just wanted to let you know, we're all counting on you."


Devout--Atheist

Aaaand he just got nailed in the backfield, he'll be out at least three days.


HansBaccaR23po

Anddddddd now I’m crashing down


Currymvp2

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.


MC_JACKSON

Watch you beat Brady, he gets cut, then signs with you guys for the rest of the season


InfernoDragonKing

Everyday, the Brady-9ers theory gets crazier and crazier


noshoptime

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


Ferrarisimo

Oh, please. We haven't beaten a team and then immediately taken their best player since... *checks notes*, CMC. Let's do it.


German_Irish_chicken

I would like that.


Jordanwolf98

Wtf I guess that dude wasn’t joking when he commented “We will rally around a Brock Purdy and we will play good football”


eli7097

“That dude” is certainly a way to describe Fred Warner


Jordanwolf98

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


Elite_Mike

Trey injured, Jimmy G injured and a free agent. This is all setting up for Brady to the 49ers next season, isn't it?


jcrewjr

Can we trade for him this week?


angoosey8991

Brady is currently begging the Tampa front office to be cut


CosmicOwl102

Not ideal for the 49'ers postseason.


101955Bennu

Brock Purdy will be the first ever rookie QB to start a super bowl


Fugacity-

Definitely the first every Mr. Irrelevant to start the SB lmfao


BonBonVelveeta

Fuck it we’re taking a Mr irrelevant to the playoffs


I_HATE_THE_SEAHAWKS

i am going to throw up


josh_rosen

Brock Purdy was a 4 year starter and is a special competitor, he’s going to win a lot of games for SF.


BalmainBronco713

The funny thing about his foot is that it's located on his cock


Easy-Priority-2703

You don't see many Superbad references. Appreciate you bro


moonman272

He has the sickest references, everyone knows that


otiso_niloc

You scratch my foot, I’ll scratch yours.


Hungry-Pen3948

Mr. Irrelevant about to go on a Super Bowl run??


Saladfork4

I just feel terrible for Jimmy :(


Stevepac9

Fitzmagic baby where are you


ContinuumGuy

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


Paulatkinson777

Such terrible luck with Lance and Jimmy G going down … could Brock Purdy be Tom Brady 2.0!?


verendum

Pass me the hopium. I need that tonight


Brexinga

Every. Damn. Season... Why are the 49ers not allowed to finish a season with an healthy Qb...


ohnoguts

What happens if something happens to Purdy? Do they get to hire another backup QB?


Subpxl

Signings of unrestricted free agents can happen any time of the season.


---SPIDER-MAN---

Someone kidnaps the Bucs GM and forces them to cut Brady

Mr. Suddenly Relevant

There goes my 49ers/Dolphins Super Bowl prediction


ItsBearski

Purdy looked good. Aggressive shots one target.


ohnoguts

Good under pressure


ecupatsfan12

I hate it for jimmy man but the niners aren’t dead yet with Kyle calling the plays and that defense


newfather16

I am now a 49ers bandwagon fan!!


tpeeps11

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


Flylatino24

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


GreatLookingGuy

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.


modin33

Fuckin A, sorry SF bros


yosemiteclimber

Man, brutal news for us SF fans. Injuries this year have been nuts :(


Chuu320

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?


ecupatsfan12

With that run game and Kyle calling plays they can be competent


dpcdomino

A lot of "fans" think Kyle is the problem. Not one of them.


Ez_Breesy_Cover_2

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


JesterMarcus

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.


rinanlanmo

Luckily a lot of those passes are 2-5 yarders that our ridiculously talented skill players turn into big gains.


IMissWinning

Three?


kbuis

He came from the future.


Legndarystig

Imma go vomit. Feels so bad for jimmy.


killerrazzmazz

Damn. I'm curious to see how the rest of their season turns out. Their backup QB did purdy good.


sebastianqu

Backups can often make noise in the first game or two. Mike White just struggled against the worst passing defense in the league.


Nickppapagiorgio

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?


btw94

Tom Brady demands a trade to the 49ers Hypothetically


w34ksaUce

*I want to die pic*


BrickWallington

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.


WANDERING_1112

This dude is so unlucky it's kinda sad honestly. This has to be his price for being handsome ngl being made of glass.


discostuu72

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.


Jinnuu

hello darkness my old friend


northwest333

My soul hurts for jimmy, he put it all out there this season.
