San Francisco 49ers quarterback Brock Purdy has been named the NFC Offensive Player of the Week in recognition of his impressive performance during the team's Week 11 victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Levi's Stadium.

Purdy completed 21 of his 25 passing attempts for 333 yards and three touchdowns, earning a perfect passer rating of 158.3. Notably, he is the first 49ers quarterback to do so with a minimum of 20 pass attempts (Joe Montana did it in a game in 1989 on 19 attempts). Furthermore, Purdy became the first 49ers quarterback to post a passer rating of 140.0 or higher in consecutive games since Alex Smith did so in 2012.

Purdy became the third player in NFL history under the age of 24 to earn a perfect passer rating with a minimum of 20 attempts.

"I mean, what an honor," Purdy said of the achievement after Sunday's game. "Yeah, what an honor, but at the same time, I feel like there's still some plays and stuff that I wish I had back. So I'm not completely content with just that, but thought it was a great game with the guys around me, the coaching and the play calling, all of it. So that's a testament the team, really."

Upon learning about Purdy's perfect passer rating, running back Christian McCaffrey said, "Dang, he had a perfect passer rating? That's incredible. He's a baller, man. He's a baller. That's a good defense, too. That doesn't shock me, but that is impressive. So I'm happy for him."

San Francisco made Purdy (6-1, 220) a seventh-round selection (No. 262 overall) out of Iowa State last year. He has completed 193 of 275 attempts (70.2 percent) for 2,662 yards with 18 touchdowns and five interceptions through 10 starts this season, per Pro Football Reference.

This is the first time Purdy has earned NFC Offensive Player of the Week honors. He is the first 49ers quarterback to do so since Jimmy Garoppolo after Week 14 of the 2019 season. Additionally, he is the second former Iowa State player to earn the award since quarterback David Archer after Week 3 in 1986.

The debate between game manager versus game-changer continues, even after Brock Purdy helped guide the San Francisco 49ers to the Super Bowl. While the quarterback has done everything asked of him, aided by his talented supporting cast, there remain skeptics who persist in downplaying his achievements. Former NFL quarterback Robert Griffin III, who once played in head coach Kyle Shanahan's offense, is not among Purdy's doubters. Speaking to Jason McCourty on Griffin's podcast, "RG3 and The Ones," Griffin shared his thoughts on the 49ers' quarterback. Griffin reflects on Purdy's season and his Super Bowl appearance, insisting it's challenging to come away from his performances believing the 24-year-old quarterback is merely a game manager.

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
