The leadership of the San Francisco 49ers now rests firmly in Brock Purdy’s hands, and the sooner some individuals come to terms with this truth, the more beneficial it will be.

Purdy is embarking on his second full season as the primary starter, absorbing all the first-team repetitions in practice and fully embracing his role.

Despite not being known for his verbal prowess, he understands that he’s now the team’s primary figure and is performing accordingly.

That’s why George Kittle, a standout player, lavished him with admiration.

When discussing his quarterback, Kittle praised his unwavering performance and how he consistently shows up ready to compete and deliver each day.

Even more noteworthy is his inclination to hold the receivers accountable by demanding more effort and ensuring everyone stays in line:

“His presence at the facility is unwavering, displaying a remarkable level of consistency. He possesses immense competitive spirit. I’m delighted to witness him instilling the necessary discipline by correcting the receivers when they fall short in executing their duties,” Kittle mentioned to NBC Sports Bay Area.

Some skeptics doubt Purdy’s ability to guide the team to a championship.

Nevertheless, since assuming leadership, he has accumulated numerous victories and showcased commendable performances during the postseason.

Frankly, a few questionable coaching decisions were the sole obstacle preventing the Niners from winning the Super Bowl, and Purdy’s performance had a significant role in that regard.

Now burdened with a substantial challenge and a pending lucrative contract extension, the once-overlooked player faces the task of outshining his previous season, needing to reach peak performance to silence all critics definitively.
