Joe Montana thinks Brock Purdy’s suspicion is misplaced.  Advises 49ers QB – NBC Sports Bay Area & California

If there’s one player who looks forward to playing quarterback well, it’s 49ers legend and Pro Football Hall of Famer Joe Montana.

With San Francisco one win away from capturing the franchise’s sixth Vince Lombardi Trophy, second-year quarterback Brock Purdy will lead the 49ers under center in Super Bowl LVIII on Sunday at Allegiant Stadium as he looks to silence his many critics by outshining star quarterback Patrick Mahomes. And the Kansas City Chiefs.

Montana joined “The Rich Eisen Show” this week in Las Vegas, where he discussed Purdy’s rise to the NFL and why the doubt surrounding the young player is misplaced.

“I’m not sure what they’re talking about, the guy plays very good football and everyone still doubts him,” Montana told Eisen. “I think he understands this offense, and he understands the people around him. He doesn’t force plays if he doesn’t have to. But you can always tell when a guy is comfortable on offense when he plays like Brock plays.”

“Don’t guess it, guess the draft. It’s proof, (Tom) Brady’s proof that they didn’t know how to draft. What’s important, what’s not important. Because you don’t know who he is. ‘I’m going to make that shift.’ “I don’t know why people doubt it.”

Pundits often call Purdy a “game manager,” belittling his season in which he was a finalist for the NFL MVP award, was named an NFC Pro Bowl starter and broke countless league and franchise records in large part due to the supporting cast surrounding him. . .

Montana also joined the “Dan Patrick Show” this week where he offered his advice to Purdy ahead of the 24-year-old’s first Super Bowl appearance and explained how Purdy’s situation in coach Kyle Shanahan’s offense compares to his situation under legendary coach Bill Walsh.

“Don’t do anything different than you’ve been doing,” Montana said of his advice to Purdy. “I like what he’s been doing. He’s found a way to understand what this offense is, and the people around him can only make it better. His job is to find a way to get the ball to these guys.”

“That’s the way the Bell offense used to work when we had Jerry (Rice) and John Taylor. John Taylor twice went for 90-plus yards in (Dec. 11, 1989, 49ers-Rams game). I threw two seven-yard passes on a slant.” “But in the books, I had 190 passing yards and two touchdowns.”

Montana seems to subscribe to the belief that all signal callers are technically “game managers” or “system quarterbacks,” and he, a four-time Super Bowl-winning quarterback and first-ballot Hall of Famer, is no different. of Fame.

A Purdy win over the defending champion Chiefs on Sunday would go a long way toward silencing a large group of remaining doubters.
