Linebacker Fred Warner thinks the San Francisco 49ers can earn Super Bowl LVII with rookie Brock Purdy serving as their starting quarterback.
“Yes. Certainly, I do,” Warner answered when questioned Monday by Loaded Eisen if he thinks Purdy can tutorial the club to a championship, per David Bonilla of 49ers WebZone. Warner was speaking just one day just after starter Jimmy Garoppolo endured a year-ending broken left foot all through Sunday’s 33-17 earn about the Miami Dolphins. San Francisco misplaced to start with-decision sign-caller Trey Lance to a time-ending ankle injuries in Week 2.
The 49ers designed Purdy the final select of the 2022 NFL Draft but later on signed Garoppolo to a restructured contract in August to hold on to him as a backup for Lance. Purdy done 25-of-37 passes for 210 yards with two touchdowns and an interception from the Dolphins and reportedly will be San Francisco’s QB1 moving forward even though Baker Mayfield was waived by the Carolina Panthers on Monday.
“It is really these types of an not likely tale to have ‘Mr. Irrelevant’ appear in, lead the Niners to a Super Bowl,” Warner told Eisen. “I consider that is what everybody’s going to compose us off on, and that is good. If which is what absolutely everyone would like the narrative to be, I am wholly wonderful with that. I am so completely laser-concentrated, just like I know the workforce is, on taking this issue one week at a time.
“Our purpose, in the long run, is the Tremendous Bowl. We want to acquire that Super Bowl so terribly.”
It is really unclear if the 49ers intend on trying to land Mayfield, who requested for his launch after he missing his beginning career and spot on the depth chart in Carolina. On Sunday night, it was described that the 49ers have been signing veteran backup Josh Johnson.
Purdy will start off for the 8-4 49ers towards the 5-6 Tampa Bay Buccaneers this coming Sunday just after Tampa Bay faces the 4-8 New Orleans Saints Monday night.
