Brock Purdy’s struggles inspire Nick Bosa’s unique perspective on 49ers loss – NBC Sports Bay Area & California

SANTA CLARA – Brock Purdy is not perfect.

The 49ers quarterback was responsible for four interceptions in his team’s 33-19 loss to the Baltimore Ravens on Christmas Eve at Levi’s Stadium, but Nick Bosa had a unique take on Purdy after the worst game of his young career in the NFL.

“I think it’s amazing the way he’s played the last two years,” Bosa said. “I’m just a young man, a rookie last year, and it seems that he is immortal, and no one is immortal.”

Purdy finished the night completing 18 of 32 attempts for 255 yards and no touchdowns to offset the turnovers, giving him a passer rating of 42.6. Still, Purdy’s teammate and reigning NFL Defensive Player of the Year hasn’t lost faith in his quarterback.

“He responded to his poor performance before, and I think he will again,” Bosa said. “He just wants to do the best he can for this group and he’s our guy, he’s our leader and I talked to him earlier and said, ‘Let’s move on to the next one.’ »

Bosa shared that while he didn’t give Purdy many words of encouragement during the game, he did give him a high five to try to cheer up his younger teammate. The defensive lineman has no doubt the signal-caller will bounce back like he did earlier in the season.

The last time the 49ers lost a game was in Week 8 against the Bengals in Cincinnati. Purdy threw two interceptions in that loss and five in the team’s three games. The following week, the Iowa State product rebounded and led San Francisco to a six-game winning streak.

In those six games, Purdy completed 115 of 160 attempts for 1,762 yards, 17 touchdowns and two interceptions, with a completion rate of 71.9 percent. The quarterback is already looking forward to the remaining two games of the regular season to get back on track.

“We have some opportunities coming up and we still have two games left in the regular season before we make the playoffs,” Purdy said. “And so for me, I’m trying to get the big picture of what we’re trying to do, what our team’s goals are. But at the same time, I have to look in the mirror and ask myself why or how this happened and why I made these decisions.

Bosa expects nothing less from Purdy than to learn, grow and move on.
