Below is an excerpt from the San Francisco Chronicle.
"When the San Francisco 49ers and Dallas Cowboys treat us to the latest installment of their epic postseason rivalry Sunday at Levi’s Stadium, all eyes will be on 23-year-old Brock Purdy. It’s the biggest game of the rookie quarterback’s life, and he must win to keep the Niners’ Super Bowl dreams alive.
"Whatever happens in this showdown between the Brock Star and the dudes with stars on their helmets, however, Purdy has already scored an improbable and hugely significant victory: In the perceived competition to be the 49ers’ starter in 2023 and beyond, it’s all over but the lying.
"You may hear protestations in the coming months that such a proclamation is premature, perhaps in an effort to drive up Trey Lance’s trade value. If so, don’t believe the noise. Purdy, even if he throws 12 interceptions Sunday, is the 49ers’ quarterback of the present and future."
