Kurt Warner reacts to 49ers QB Brock Purdy tying his NFL record

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Brock Purdy completed 19 of his 26 passing attempts for 296 yards and three touchdowns in Sunday's 34-3 victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars. His passer rating of 148.9 was a career-high.

With those game-day marks, Purdy joined Hall of Fame quarterback Kurt Warner as the only quarterbacks in NFL history to record three games in their first two seasons with three or more touchdowns and a passer rating of at least 140.0.

On Monday, Warner took a lighthearted approach while revealing his thoughts on sharing the spotlight with the 49ers quarterback, responding to 49ers Webzone podcast host Al Sacco.

"Now [Brock Purdy] is taking my records… nothing is sacred anymore, haha!" Warner wrote on social media. "Well done young man, just one more example this kid can flat play football, hard to fall into things like this!!!"

Warner has been a vocal advocate of Purdy, even in the face of skepticism from those questioning the quarterback's performance. However, the Hall of Famer acknowledges that Purdy probably has not reached his full potential, so judging him based on only a season's worth of starts might be premature.

"Let's give Brock some time," Warner recently said on 95.7 The Game. "He's done great things in the short period of time in this system, things that make you go, 'Man, this kid is a really good QB.' Doesn't mean he's a finished product. Doesn't mean he's shown us everything we need to know about if he can be a franchise guy or be an elite QB in this league, but let's give him time to do that! I don't need to rush that!"

Purdy, the 49ers' final pick in last year's draft, faced the challenge of stepping into the starting role as a rookie due to injuries to Trey Lance and Jimmy Garoppolo. He stepped up to that challenge, leading the team to its third NFC Championship Game appearance in four seasons.

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Brock Purdy has earned a fan in Kansas City Chiefs defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo. Following the Chiefs' victory over the 49ers in Super Bowl 58, Spagnuolo made sure to extend his regards to Purdy. "I just texted Brock the other day," Spagnuolo disclosed in a recent conversation with Peter Schrager on "The Season" podcast. "I tried to track down his cell number. I just wanted to tell him how much respect I have for him [and] what a terrific game he played. He's such a quality guy, strong Christian man, and I respect all of that, and I'm happy for all the success." Naturally, while Spagnuolo is content that Purdy didn't overly excel in the Super Bowl, he expressed admiration for the young quarterback, saying, "I think Brock

John Lynch says Brock Purdy has given 49ers stability at QB

The San Francisco 49ers finally have stability at the quarterback position. And it's been a while coming. Three years ago, the team was on the verge of making a major trade for the chance to draft Trey Lance, who they hoped would be the QB they had been waiting on. They needed to find a new quarterback because of the lack of stability at the position, primarily due to the number of games starting QB Jimmy Garoppolo seemed to miss most seasons. But after watching Lance for some time, questions began to arise as to whether or not he could be the quarterback they drafted him to be. And after he and Garoppolo both were lost to injury in 2022, Brock Purdy, the barely-drafted seventh-rounder came in and saved the season, leading the 49ers to the NFC Championship Game. But a torn

Adam Peters: 49ers QB Brock Purdy proved he should have been drafted earlier

By David Bonilla

New Washington Commanders general manager Adam Peters faces the task of transforming the often-struggling organization into a contender, part of which involves identifying a franchise quarterback. Will that come with the No. 2 overall pick? Peters is certainly aware that drafting a signal-caller in the first round isn't always a recipe for success, as evidenced by his experiences at his last job. Peters spent the past seven seasons with the San Francisco 49ers as general manager John Lynch's trusted second-in-command. Together, after input from coaches and scouts, they made the call to draft quarterback Brock Purdy. Of course, that didn't happen until the last overall pick in the 2022 NFL Draft. During the NFL Scouting Combine this week, Peters told reporters

Purdy or Kaepernick? Which QB does 49ers great Patrick Willis pick?

By David Bonilla

Brock Purdy has proven himself an impressive and promising young player for the San Francisco 49ers. It's difficult to argue against that—although some continue to try. Purdy led the 49ers to the Super Bowl in his second NFL season and set a new single-season franchise record with 4,280 passing yards. Throughout the season, 49ers great and soon-to-be Hall of Fame linebacker Patrick Willis has voiced his admiration for Purdy and the team's achievements. However, when faced with a choice between Purdy and Colin Kaepernick, Willis sided with his former teammate. During a recent podcast appearance with Robert Griffin III, Willis was asked to choose between Kaepernick from 2012 and Purdy from 2023. "I'm going to have to take Kap," declared
