ESPN’s Dan Orlovsky is showing enthusiasm for the potential of Brock Purdy in his second season with the San Francisco 49ers. Purdy, who was last year’s Mr. Irrelevant in the NFL draft, received widespread praise for his performance towards the end of the 2022 season and is now on track to be the starting quarterback for the Niners in 2023.

Orlovsky believes that Purdy can lead the team to a Super Bowl victory and attributes this optimism to the creativity he brings to their offense. According to Orlovsky, there has been a shift in their offensive approach since Jimmy Garoppolo left, and Purdy has added an element of innovation.

Although Orlovsky acknowledges that defenses will have had more time to study film on Purdy during this offseason, he still thinks highly of him due to his understanding of coach Kyle Shanahan’s system. He points out that it is challenging for opposing teams to game-plan against backup quarterbacks because they are less familiar with their strengths and weaknesses.

While acknowledging other options such as Sam Darnold or Trey Lance, Orlovsky expresses confidence in Purdy leading San Francisco into contention for a Super Bowl appearance based on their strong defense and talented offensive weapons.

As of now, it appears that the Niners are placing their hopes for a championship on Purdy’s shoulders after he helped guide them to NFC Championship Game last season.
