Experienced Starter w/First Big Contract
Yeah Purdy wasn’t “clutch” enough, Alex Guerrero never would have let Tom’s elbow rupture… he would have rubbed a magic elven poultice on it.49ers did a major faceplant yesterday. Just a complete debacle with the quarterback situation. A team like that should not be depending on the likes of Garoppolo, Purdy and Josh Johnson ever again. I don't think the Eagles were even that great, especially Hurts, but it didn't matter because the 49ers played most of the game with essentially no quarterback. And despite what some people say, the quarterback is by far the most important position of a team, so even a "great team" like the 49ers are helpless without a quarterback.
As for the AFCCG, Burrow missed out on his opportunity to overtake Mahomes as the league's top quarterback. For now, Mahomes has solidified that spot even further (although his unforced fumbled made the game close). There's a lot to be said for this game but I'll just go with two items: 1) the officiating was grossly in favor of the Chiefs and 2) Joseph Ossai is a complete moron.
One more comment on the importance of the quarterback debate. The best QB in the NFL over the last 5 seasons has been Patrick Mahomes. The Chiefs have played in 5 straight conference championship games with 3 Super Bowl appearances. Not a coincidence (@Wozzy).
You better readjust your rankings again and move Purdy (who wasn’t even there a month ago) back down and drop Burrow while you’re at it.
When a 4th round pick beats #1 QB Mahomes make sure to move Jalen Hurts up ahead of him like you’ve been doing all season… moving the goalposts based on team results.
The 49ers lost because the Eagle’s defensive front made the 49ers offensive line their btch… Philly was the better team and made fewer mistakes.
Moving the goalposts all year with this list. A popularity contest list by a QB fanboy isn’t a competency list.
