Game manager or game changer? RG3 weighs in on 49ers QB Brock Purdy

By David Bonilla
Feb 17

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. "There

49ers QB Brock Purdy outlines his plans for improving his game over the offseason

Brock Purdy is going to be a busy man in the months ahead, both on and off the field. And if everything goes right, he'll come out of it in a much better place than he was a year ago. Purdy was facing some uncertainty at this time last year after suffering a torn UCL in his elbow while trying to lead the San Francisco 49ers against the Philadelphia Eagles as a rookie quarterback in the NFC Championship game. An offseason of surgery and rehabilitation awaited Purdy in February 2023, but after a successful second season that saw him finish as a finalist for the NFL's Most Valuable Player award while guiding the 49ers to Super Bowl LVIII, Purdy will now have the opportunity to focus his offseason efforts on improving as a player instead of trying to heal his

The bad blood between the Philadelphia Eagles and San Francisco 49ers seems to be getting worse. It certainly isn't getting any less bizarre. The latest chapter of back-and-forth between these two teams occurred Tuesday evening in an exchange between 49ers offensive lineman Jon Feliciano and Eagles defensive tackle Jalen Carter. Feliciano made headlines earlier in the week by publicly pointing out a mistake made by guard Spencer Burford during a pivotal overtime play against the Chiefs in Super Bowl LVIII, to which Carter responded by writing "Same dude who spoke on my dead teammate and the reason I was emotional during our game." Carter was referring to former University of Georgia player Devin Willock, who died along with team recruiting analyst Chandler LeCroy

Commanders hire 49ers assistant Anthony Lynn as run-game coordinator

By David Bonilla

The San Francisco 49ers are losing their assistant head coach and running backs coach, Anthony Lynn. According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Washington Commanders are hiring Lynn to be their run-game coordinator. "Commanders made a run at Lynn last year, but get him this year," wrote Schefter. "Here's one reason why: Lynn is close with HC Dan Quinn and GM Adam Peters." Lynn reunites with Peters, who served as the 49ers' assistant general manager since 2021 before becoming the Commanders' general manager in January. Washington hired Quinn as their new head coach earlier this month. A big move for
