Brock Purdy — the trick to beating him, 49ers in Divisional Round

As the fanbase continues its quest for a , a dark, intimidating shadow lurks in its path. This shadow belongs to none other than QB .

This young was the very last pick of the 2022 and has shown to deserve the name of Mr. Relevant rather than Mr. Irrelevent. 

Brock has scored over 30 points in six of his seven games. This man obviously has great potential and is not willing to lose.

As a matter of fact, he is undefeated right now, standing at 7-0.

Purdy is an amazing QB, yet there is a certain that he hasn't run into yet.

The Cowboys have had the #2 defense for most of the year (right behind the 49ers) and have given up very few points to anyone they come across. 

While I know Brock Purdy will struggle against this defense more than his previous opponents, the Cowboys have really good pass rushers such as and .

These guys can put a ton of pressure on Purdy and cause him to mess up.

This will be a key factor in Sunday night's matchup and will play a huge part in the game.

If Brock Purdy can be put under pressure, then he can definitely be exposed. While he is, in fact, a very talented quarterback and a great leader to his team, he just hasn't run into a powerful and aggressive defense like this one.

Even when he was at Iowa State University he was never faced with a rushing-style defense that always went after the QB.

Purdy is too good of a quarterback for man defense. He's accurate and precise and can't be beaten in a throwing competition.

I mean, look at this pass!

If you look carefully at that you can also see that some of the defenders got into the backfield just before he threw it away. I believe that if those defenders were wearing a Cowboys uniform, he would have been sacked.

Parsons and other linemen are just too quick and if the 49ers' line lets up huge holes like that, then our guys will be feasting this Sunday. Sack after sack.

While rushing him is the way to go for sure, playing a zone-style defense is also the way to go. He is still young, and while he's skilled in many areas, throwing a confusing zone defense at him would make things very stressful for him.

Brock Purdy needs to be shown what the NFL is really like.

Purdy has been lucky to get softer teams with hardly any good defenders on them over his first 7 games. This will be his first real challenge at getting past a strong defense.

Over the week, our guys need to come up with a complicated zone system and work on rushing every single down.

Hello Tony! I think the best way to deal with Purdy is to apply constant pressure. Even if you don’t get the sack, just keep him in hurry-up mode. He’s played really well, but he has to hit the wall at some point. Why not Sunday ? Why not the Cowboys? The 49’ers can be had if you’re smart and disciplined against them. Their defense is good from the standpoint of the front seven. The secondary ain’t all that!!! If Cee Dee, Gallup, and the tight ends all bring their A Games, Dallas has a legitimate shot for the upset! Dak Prescott and the O-Line have to be clicking and sprinkle in a little effective running game. We will be playing the Eagles or the Giants for the right to go to the BIG GAME!!!!


Tony, you need to read more. If you want to be a journalist, you better brush up on the English language. Nonother is not a word. It’s none other. This isn’t the first time you’ve butchered words. I don’t mean to put you down, but if you are an aspiring journalist, you can’t make grammatical mistakes.

Just a couple of results from Google on the valid, albeit antiquated word. Your actual bitch is that nonother is just the wrong word for the context. The content has been updated. Please be smarter when you’re trying to be the smartest guy in the “room.”


I’m not trying to be the smartest guy in the room. I respect Tony’s ambition and that he is pursuing his passion. I want to provide a little constructive criticism. If writing / journalism is his long-term career goal, he should tidy things up a bit. He‘s 18 years old. I sure as hell didn’t know everything at that age.

Growing one’s ambitions into something more is and always has been my goal with this site. Young writers, not young in age but young in experience, come here to learn to be better, and constructive criticism is a huge part of the process. If that was your only goal, then I sincerely appreciate your desire to contribute. Just know that it came off as rather aggressive for constructive criticism. Thanks.


“Purdy is an amazing QB, yet there is a certain defense that he hasn’t run into yet, the Dallas Cowboys.” The Dallas Cowboys is not a defense. You have to show possession. You should write “that of the Dallas Cowboys” or the Dallas Cowboys’. Also you use Brock Purdy, Brock and Purdy when referring to him. In journalism, you first identify the person with their full name, then any subsequent reference to that person is by his/her last name only. You are all over the place with this.

The last two words in the first paragraph are Brock Purdy.
