Brock Purdy, 49ers embrace “win the day” attitude amid Super Bowl mindset

The San Francisco 49ers fell just short of their Super Bowl aspirations yet again in 2022, losing to the Philadelphia Eagles in the NFC Championship Game after quarterback Brock Purdy suffered a torn UCL early in the first quarter.

Now fully healthy, Purdy is prepared for another potential Super Bowl run with a strong core around him, with the 49ers as motivated as ever, taking the process day by day.

"We have such a special group of guys, so much experience, the veterans on this team, and how everyone's professional in what they do," Purdy recently told Jennifer Lee Chan of NBC Sports Bay Area. "There's not a lot of selfishness or anything, ego, none of that. And so we all have the same mindset: to win a Super Bowl and do everything we can to be our best every single week, every single day."

Coming into the offseason, Purdy faced a daunting recovery with an unprecedented torn UCL inury, but saw nothing but support from his teammates, making the process easier for the quarterback, who ended up coming back earlier than the projected six-month timeline in time for the beginning of the preseason.

"And as I've rehabbed here, going back to OTAs, just the vibe, the locker room, how guys are and how supportive they are with my arm, and they're like, 'Man, you're going to be just fine. We believe you'll be back and in the swing of things, and we'll pick up where we left off,'" Purdy said. "And it's been like that across the whole entire roster.

"So very thankful for this group and this organization, the guys up top, all the way down. It's been great."

Understanding the Super Bowl aspirations after a strong 2022 season, Purdy and the 49ers are determined to take the sour taste of losing out of their mouths, but know the work that comes with the grueling process.

"Obviously, I think we all had that Super Bowl taste in our mouth last year, winning 12 in a row, getting an NFC Championship, feeling good about just everything, and then things ending the way it did," Purdy shared. "So, we still have, obviously, that mindset of, 'Hey, we can be the best team in the league at the end of it,' but it starts with winning the day, being our best version every single day, and that'll come."

The solution? Taking it day-by-day, putting in consistent work, and having the mentality of earning their flowers once again.

"We've got to take it week by week, and every single year, just because you did what you did last year doesn't mean it's going to be the same this year," Purdy said. "So we have to earn it again. That'll be the case every single year. But that's where we're at. We're just taking it day by day."

Purdy and the 49ers will look to continue their process in the home opener on Thursday, where they'll host the New York Giants in a primetime game in hopes of improving to 3-0 on the season.

Omar Ruiz talks Brock Purdy respect, 49ers-Eagles showdown

By David Bonilla

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Brock Purdy has showcased elite-level performances this season. Nevertheless, some seem reluctant to give the second-year player the respect that many 49ers fans believe he deserves. NFL Network reporter Omar Ruiz joined KNBR on Monday morning and was asked if he senses a reluctance among the media to categorize Purdy among the upper echelon of NFL quarterbacks. "Yeah, and I think as long as he has a loaded Forty-Niner team around him, it'll probably always be like that unless he wins a Super Bowl," Ruiz responded on the "Murph and Mac" show. Ruiz drew parallels to former Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson's journey to being considered among the league's best. Initially, the team's outstanding defensive play

49ers Notebook: Deebo Samuel backs up the smack; Brock Purdy returns to scene of injury; Jauan Jennings beats his favorite team

It's not often that a player can back up copious amounts of trash talk the way Deebo Samuel did against the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday, but that's exactly what happened during the critical beatdown the 49ers unleashed on the Eagles at Lincoln Financial Field. Samuel was among multiple 49ers players who expressed confidence over the offseason that the result in last season's NFC Championship game, won 31-7 by the Eagles, would have been different had quarterback Brock Purdy not suffered a season-ending elbow injury during the contest. No one was more vocal on that front than Samuel, who said things like "We lost because we played with ten people" while adding that the

Tight end George Kittle values the presence of Brock Purdy in the San Francisco 49ers' huddle. The quarterback has played efficiently, contributing to the team's three consecutive wins following a costly October slump. Purdy is on track to become the first 49ers quarterback to surpass 4,000 passing yards since Jeff Garcia did so in 2000. In fact, his projected 4,437 yards would set a franchise record. "I think I can speak for everybody on our offense, we're continually impressed with the things that Brock does all the time," Kittle told Jim Rome on Tuesday. "His consistency every single day, the relationship that he's built with all of our skilled players, all the guys that he gets the ball to, it's pretty amazing. And we all feel that [comfort] with
