Purdy is one of NFL’s great stories

One of the great stories of the NFL in the last two years is undoubtedly that of San Francisco 49ers quarterback Brock Purdy. Famous for being the last Draft selection – the famous Mr. Irrelevant – Purdy had his big opportunity when Jimmy Garoppolo and Trey Lance got injured and he had to step in to lead the team’s offense in the Bay Area. And from there, he became a star.

Two seasons ago, Purdy led San Francisco to the ¿National Conference championship game against the Philadelphia Eagles, where he suffered an early injury that kept him out and practically sidelined. Last year, Purdy had his first full season as a starter and took the Niners even further: to Super Bowl LVIII, where they were defeated by the Kansas City Chiefs.

Purdy, whose personality is amiable, away from the limelight and always kind, has been the subject of discussion in recent weeks for two different situations. The first is his marriage, at the age of 24, to his lifelong girlfriend, Jenna Brandt. The other has more to do with football and with a fact that could help him improve his game and stay healthy: his physical condition.

The new and muscular Brock Purdy

In a post on the social network Z, Dov Kleiman focused attention on Purdy’s physique, who is much more muscular than the previous year, indicating his commitment to having a physique that helps him withstand the hits on the field. Purdy was normally slimmer, much in the style of what the legendary Joe Montana was in his time. But now the 49ers quarterback is much more muscular, strong, and surely agile.

Will this be a change that helps him reach the Super Bowl again and try to avenge the defeat against Patrick Mahomes’ Chiefs? The 2024 season has not yet started, but it is a reality that Purdy’s gym work represents an improvement that speaks to his commitment to his job and the team. At least now the 49ers have a Super Purdy who will surely give them many more satisfactions and help them try to achieve that seventh Super Bowl that has eluded them since the 1994 season.
