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. 3: The bitterness of defeat will fuel Brock Purdy

Bitter defeat has a way of bringing out the best in an athlete. With as big of a competitor as Brock Purdy is, you know that the sting of that loss in the Super Bowl is not going to leave him anytime soon.

He knows that while he played a solid game overall, there were a few throws at key moments that he likely wants back. Purdy is not the type to sit and mope about coming up short, he seems like the type who is only going to double down and do everything he can to ensure that the 49ers get back to that game and do not come up short yet again.

With the Super Bowl loss, the narrative surrounding Purdy that he is a "game manager" rather than a "game changer" will only persist. Purdy does not seem like the type to remember the name of everyone who has ever slighted him like Tom Brady, but there is likely some part of him that wants to come back and shut everyone up next season.

In sum, I do not think we have seen the best of Brock Purdy yet. I am not saying that he is going to win MVP next season, but I do believe that with a full offseason to improve his craft as a quarterback, better understand Kyle Shanahan's offense, and allow defeat to fuel his motivation that we will see a Purdy who is better and determined to take San Francisco back to the Super Bowl next season.
