Brock Purdy’s quick rise to fame in San Francisco is impressive. He was a seventh-round pick in the 2022 NFL Draft, but he’s won all six of his games as the 49ers’ quarterback since last season. His teammates like him.
Brandon Aiyuk, a 49ers receiver, likes playing with Purdy. Aiyuk has played with different quarterbacks in his NFL career, but he says the team now believes they can win with Purdy.
Aiyuk says Purdy has something special, even though he can’t explain it. In their first game this season, Aiyuk scored two touchdowns, and he’s on track for another good season.
Even though they had an easy game against the Steelers, it showed that Purdy is here to stay, and Aiyuk might be his main receiver. Trust is essential in their partnership, Aiyuk says. Trust helps them play well, even when the other team is tough. Trust is a big part of their offense.
