Even a Brock Purdy stinker in Sunday’s NFC championship game between the San Francisco 49ers and Philadelphia Eagles won’t be enough to cost him next year’s starting quarterback job, says former NFL player and current ESPN pundit Ryan Clark.
On Friday’s episode of “First Take,” Clark was unequivocal on two counts. First, Purdy has earned the starting nod after going undefeated at least through the NFL title game (and possibly beyond!). “It’s zero question,” Clark said. “…No matter what happens on Sunday, going into next year, Brock Purdy is the quarterback, without competition.”
