49ers' Brock Purdy has no idea if he suffered long-term injury, will undergo MRI

The Purdy Magic ended on Sunday for the San Francisco 49ers. Not because the rookie quarterback's run of solid play ended, but because of an injury, unfortunately. Purdy did re-enter the NFC Championship Game against the Philadelphia Eagles, but it was only because his backup, Josh Johnson, was ruled out with a concussion. Purdy didn't expect to go back onto the field. He couldn't even effectively throw the football. The quarterback suffered an elbow injury in the first quarter on the throw that was ruled a fumble recovery by the Eagles. Testing his arm on the sideline, Purdy couldn't throw the football beyond 10 yards. "He wouldn't have gone back in if we hadn't had to," head coach Kyle Shanahan said. "It was that or we were going to have go wildcat. We didn't



WR Brandon Aiyuk: 49ers have chip on their shoulder after recent playoff losses

The San Francisco 49ers are facing off against the Philadelphia Eagles in the NFC Championship on Sunday, with the winner facing off against either the Cincinnati Bengals or the Kansas City Chiefs in the Super Bowl. This is a stage familiar for the 49ers, as they've made the NFC Championship Game in three of the past four seasons now, losing to the Los Angeles Rams last season, while going to the Super Bowl in 2019 after a win over the Green Bay Packers. However, despite seeing consistent success, the 49ers haven't accomplished their No. 1 goal: winning a Super Bowl, which has left a chip on their shoulder as they strive to hit that goal this season. When asked about the topic, wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk agreed with the sentiment about having a chip



How the 49ers have advanced their offense without changing their core identity

The San Francisco 49ers have developed into an elite-tier offense over the past seven weeks, averaging over 34 points a game with quarterback Brock Purdy at the helm, while ranking second in DVOA since they acquired Christian McCaffrey. However, they've run a similar offense since the arrival of head coach Kyle Shanahan, which bodes the question of how the 49ers have remained at their elite levels on that side of the ball, despite the amount of game film being produced on their tendencies. The answer: advancing their offense by adding a layer of intricacy, even though the idea behind plays is what San Francisco has run for the past few years. Right tackle Mike McGlinchey spoke on the topic to reporters this week, highlighting the difference between



Baldinger explains why 49ers' Kyle Shanahan should have challenged the catch vs. Eagles

By David Bonilla

It wasn't a catch. We learned that soon after the Philadelphia Eagles quickly got back to the line of scrimmage and ran another play, after which the San Francisco 49ers could do nothing. In what looked like an amazing one-handed leaping grab by DeVonta Smith, replays showed that the Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver failed to maintain possession. Many feel that, in the end, it would not have mattered. The Eagles ended up winning the NFC Championship Game 31-7. Maybe it would have mattered, though. Who knows what would have happened had officials overturned that play call? The drive would have ended because it was a 29-yard catch
