UNBELIEVABLE: Purdy Reveal The Text He Received From Chief DC Spagnuolo after 49ers’ Super Bowl loss

Feb 24, 2024 #49ers, #NFL

What Chiefs DC Spagnuolo texted Purdy after 49ers’ Super Bowl loss originally appeared on NBC Sports Bay Area

Brock Purdy might not have walked away from the 49ers’ Super Bowl LVIII loss to the Kansas City Chiefs with the franchise’s sixth Vince Lombardi Trophy, but he did earn the respect of the opposing sideline. While Purdy was not able to lead San Francisco to victory, he certainly was not the reason the team lost, and by most accounts, played well in his first Super Bowl appearance.

Well enough to earn the respect of Chiefs defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo, who discussed the second-year quarterback with NFL Network and FOX Sports’ Peter Schrager on the latest episode of “The Season with Peter Schrager” podcast

“I think Brock Purdy, I think is terrific … I didn’t find many (holes in his game),” Spagnuolo told Schrager. “The other thing that stuck out was, we played Tua [Tagovailoa], we played Josh Allen, we played Lamar Jackson and you’ve got to worry about those guys always running the football. Now it will be San Francisco. We don’t really know because we haven’t seen many of them. (We think) “Okay… maybe he’s not a runner, maybe he could use a little rest.” When I turned on the film, he tore up Green Bay and Detroit with a few plays and I said, “Okay, let’s go. We’ve got one more play left.”

Spagnuolo said he personally reached out to Purdy after the Super Bowl to express his respect for the 24-year-old caller.

“I texted Brock a while ago and tried to trace his cell phone number,” Spagnuolo said. “I just wanted to tell him how much I respect him and what an amazing game he played. He is a really nice guy and a strong Christian. I admire him all and am happy for all his success. “It’s a good thing he didn’t have a really good game.”

Spagnuolo is widely regarded as one of the best defensive coordinators in the NFL, so his praise for Purdy carries a lot of weight. Purdy and the 49ers will face Spagnuolo and the Chiefs’ vaunted defense again at Levi’s Stadium next season.
