The 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan  speaks on  Brock  Purdy’s   ‘coolest’   trait

Shanahan also discussed the differences between Purdy and Matt Ryan.

Debates about whether Brock Purdy is an MVP candidate are often empty and devoid of substance. We ignore how Pardee stepped up his offense.

He was in no rush to take Purdy’s crown this offseason, as he wanted to pick up where he left off last year.

Well, it didn’t take long until I turned 23. From using the entire field to throwing the ball deep, Purdy helped maximize this offense.

He used his legs and mobility mostly as needed to keep the offense on the field. But coach Kyle Shanahan explained that Purdy’s best trait isn’t physical.

“I mean, I think it’s something he does very naturally. I feel like Brock’s talent can’t always be appreciated.

I think vision and all that stuff is very important. This isn’t just a question of ‘Is it 20/20?’ There are different types of vision.

Looking outward, looking broadly inward, for example, are just words I know nothing about. But how your eyes see things is very important.

I think Brock recognizes the speed and level of things, knows the holes and the defenders and what they need to defend.

But there is always progress. “Okay, we’re going to put on this play here,” but this person may not be able to get the job done.


So you have to feel it and be confident that when he gets the job done we will be in second place.

This is what he usually does. Brock went for number one, which wasn’t on the tape, but he didn’t back down, we had a fast guy there and you better back off.

He hesitated a little, and Brock noticed it. So he sees it and reacts without remembering or guessing, and that’s the coolest thing about him.”

Shanahan went on to use himself as an example to explain what Purdy does.

“That said, there is always progress, but you can say this guy is number one in the game in progress, but the coverage they play in is never open.

So you have to see that it is covered, which means the number two is open.

But you can’t get that coverage and go straight to number 2 and then go back to number 1 if it’s covered, so you have to check everything. I mean, if I went there and played quarterback,

I have no idea what’s going on. I memorized the coverage, tried programming it ahead of time, and then said, “Okay, I think that’s it. Let’s move on to number three.”

Then, as soon as you get scammed and try to get back to first place, you either throw a pick or get fired.

So, even though you know what’s going on, you still try to keep playing the game and not get distracted by coaches talking and filming and things like that.

You have to get into your pocket, read and react. “That’s why it’s really difficult to take on this position,” he said.

Even if Shanahan didn’t know he was doing it, he may or may not have taken a hit on the former quarterback.

Brock comes into the game and lets the defense tell him what to do. Some may decide in advance what to do based on the game’s challenges.

Finally, Shanahan talks about the differences between Purdy and Matt Ryan.


“That’s right. Anyone can improve with repetition. Matt felt much more comfortable in his second year than in his first.

But what made it harder for Matt was that I got there in 8th grade and he played with six different coordinators.

So there’s more football on his mind. So you went through everything and Brock came away with a pretty clean slate.

Brock always attacked, learned, reacted and played the way he played. It’s another thing to think of further plans before getting close to someone.”

So Purdy didn’t have to handle many other NFL offenses, which seemed to help him become a sponge under Shanahan.
