The San Francisco 49ers have suffered a major blow to their quarterback depth after it was announced that Brock Purdy has a torn UCL in his throwing elbow, which is expected to sideline him for six months.
The injury occurred during the 49ers’ loss to the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday night. The Eagles showed the 49ers the meaning of being physical, as they dominated the game and won by a score of 22-17.
The loss was clouded by what-ifs and second guesses, as the 49ers had multiple opportunities to take the lead late in the game, but were unable to capitalize.
The Eagles have now shown that they are one of the best teams in the league, and have proven that they have what it takes to win a Super Bowl. They have been physical, disciplined and have taken advantage of every opportunity that has come their way.
The 49ers will now have to adjust to life without Purdy, and it remains to be seen how they will respond. However, the Eagles have shown that they have what it takes to win a championship, and they may be the team to beat in the NFC this season.
