The 49ers severely thought of Tom Brady at QB earlier than committing to Brock Purdy

There’s been a story this season that the 49ers have been the geniuses who had full religion in Brock Purdy, however that wasn’t all the time the case. A story from Nick Wagoner of ESPN notes that San Francisco were on the verge of having very different plans in 2023.

With Purdy coming off an damage and Jimmy Garoppolo certain for Las Vegas, the Niners explored a wild plan at quarterback: Bringing again Tom Brady for one last run.

“Being doubted is nothing new for Purdy, from youth soccer to varsity to this previous offseason, when the Niners have been prepared for one last run at Tom Brady earlier than guaranteeing Purdy the beginning job in 2023.”

That is a completely fascinating component to think about on this 49ers season. Purdy, is usually credited (incorrectly) for being the most important distinction maker to the workforce, however the entrance workplace lacked sufficient conviction earlier than the 2023 season started that they have been actually attempting to consider what Brady would seem like on the workforce.

It’s unclear how far this bought. Did the 49ers speak to Brady and discover out he wasn’t ? Did they determine to tug again of their very own accord? Did this concept contain Brady turning into the instant starter now, whereas additionally taking part in mentor to Purdy for the long run?

These are all fascinating questions, as a result of it dramatically alters how we understand San Francisco this yr — in addition to what the workforce would possibly do sooner or later with their quarterback place. Purdy has been unimaginable this season, however there’s no less than some folks contained in the entrance workplace who aren’t completely offered on him being the long-term reply.

That’s most likely a good concern. In any case, Purdy was fairly horrific in opposition to the Packers this previous weekend, and whereas he put it collectively when it counted, the 49ers can be dwelling proper now if not for Christian McCaffrey.

Would the 49ers be runaway locks to win the Super Bowl this yr if that they had No. 12 below middle for one final journey? That’s going to be one thing to consider if the 49ers falter in opposition to the Lions within the NFC Championship sport, or lose within the large sport.
