Lmao Brock Purdy got a Seattle DL to jump offsides on a hard count on 4th and 7 as the quarter was about to expire. Maybe he really is the next Aaron Rodgers.

The same folks who turned down the first Harry Potter book may be joined in that HOF by all the GMs who passed over Purdy.

I mean, that's really all of them. You can't give exemption credit to the SF GM for picking him w/ the very last pick. Maybe if he picked him 4th or 5th, the GM could be exempt.

Not too get ahead too of ourselves, but he really is checking the boxes of early career Brady.  Forced into the lineup due to injury, benefiting from good coaching, playing efficient, mistake-free football, and riding a good supporting cast/defense to victory.

Literally every GM...at least 4 times. Including the 8 other guys his own SF chose first.
