3 reasons why Brock Purdy is only going to get better next season

While this past season ended in heartbreak for Brock Purdy and the 49ers, there is reason to believe that we have not yet seen Purdy's ceiling.

Reason No. 2: Brock Purdy will become more familiar with and comfortable in Kyle Shanahan's system

Brock Purdy has now had two seasons to soak in all of the intricacies of Kyle Shanahan's complex and innovative offense. While that may seem like a lot of time, to gain a full understanding of an offense like Shanahan's it can take even longer.

In the book Building a Champion: On Football and the Making of the 49ers by former 49ers head coach Bill Walsh and author Glenn Dickey, Walsh writes about how it took Joe Montana a number of years to fully grasp Walsh's West Coast offense.

While Montana knew how to call the plays, Walsh wrote that it was not until the 1984 season, when the 49ers defeated the Miami Dolphins in the Super Bowl, that Montana began to fully grasp why Walsh was calling the plays he did and when he called them. 1984 was Montana's sixth season as a member of the Niners and only his fourth as the full-time starter from the beginning to the end of the year.

With Purdy entering his third season with San Francisco, and second as a starter, he is still grasping all of the details and intricacies of the team's offense. He has not gained a full mastery of it yet, but the more knowledge he gains the more dangerous he will be in executing the team's system.

The way that the season ended for the 49ers will only add more fuel and desire for Purdy to want to improve.
