‘The sky’s the limit’ for 49ers QB Brock Purdy, says Kyle Juszczyk

Brock Purdy faced significant scrutiny during the San Francisco 49ers' recent three-game losing streak, with some wondering if the quarterback had been overhyped during the team's 5-0 start to the season. Purdy used the bye week to recharge physically and mentally, gearing up for the challenges ahead.

"To be able to step away from the game, take a breather, understand where we're at, what we have to do, was huge for me to clear my mind and then come back excited for the second half and the stretch of football that we have to play, some good football that we have to play," Purdy said last week.

In response to the critics, Purdy delivered a stellar performance on Sunday, showcasing one of his best outings since being selected as the final overall pick in last year's draft. Completing 19 of 26 passes for 296 yards and three touchdowns, Purdy earned a career-high passer rating of 148.9.

"I think the sky's the limit for this guy," the quarterback's teammate, fullback Kyle Juszczyk, confidently said on the Ross Tucker Podcast. "He works his absolute tail off. He has such a great understanding of this offense. He's an incredible leader for such a young guy on a veteran team, too. I just have so much respect for him being able to step into a huddle and command that huddle and tell us what needs to be done."

Some recent criticism stemmed from Purdy's five interceptions during the three-game losing streak. That came after playing mistake-free football through the season's first five games.

Purdy could do no wrong against a Jaguars defense that has been very good at generating takeaways. Even his most questionable passing decision resulted in a touchdown to wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk.

"And I just think he's extreme. I think he's a really talented football player," Juszczyk continued. "I think he plays quarterback very, very well and at a really high level. And I think with the guys he's got around him, there's no limit to where this guy can go."

Bayless on 49ers: I don't believe in Kyle Shanahan or Brock Purdy

The San Francisco 49ers' collapse in Super Bowl 58 has fueled skepticism from one controversial media personality, indicating a lack of trust in two key figures of the franchise. Skip Bayless is among those doubting quarterback Brock Purdy's capabilities, which isn't new information. Additionally, he questions head coach Kyle Shanahan's effectiveness. Bayless says he was confident that the Kansas City Chiefs would beat the 49ers because of superior coaching by Andy Reid and exceptional talent in quarterback Patrick Mahomes. With Steve Spagnuolo leading the Chiefs' defense, Bayless believes the result was inevitable. "I'm sorry. More than ever, I don't believe in Kyle Shanahan, and I don't believe in Brock Purdy," Bayless said on his FOX Sports podcast. "And I

The offseason is underway for the San Francisco 49ers, which means the team's decision makers will soon have to determine which free agents they would like to try to keep and which ones they'll have to let go. One of the more interesting cases is defensive end Chase Young, whom the 49ers added during the regular season from the Washington Commanders in exchange for a third-round draft pick. It may be hard for the 49ers to prevent Young from being more than a rent-a-player, but Young's friend and former Ohio State University teammate Nick Bosa made it clear Tuesday he'd like to see general manager John Lynch and the 49ers brass find a way to keep Young on the team. In this edition of the 49ers Notebook, we delve into a range of topics starting with Bosa's

The San Francisco 49ers would love to keep their Super Bowl roster intact heading into the 2024 season. However, with the team bumping up against the projected salary cap and wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk seeking a contract extension, some difficult choices may be on the horizon. One NFL insider has singled out All-Pro fullback Kyle Juszczyk as a potential casualty as the 49ers attempt to navigate their financial situation. "Juszczyk has been in San Francisco for all seven of Kyle Shanahan's years as coach," Dan Graziano wrote in a recent feature for ESPN. "He is a vital part of the 49ers' offense and surely would be missed. He also turns 33 in April and is scheduled to earn $6.25 million in salary and bonuses in each of the next two seasons. None of that money is
