Super Bowl trash talk now has Nick Wright comparing Brock Purdy to this video game character

Do we have any fans of Mike Tyson's Punch-Out here?

Analyst Nick Wright is notorious for his anti-Brock Purdy rhetoric and his unashamed fandom of the Chiefs. Is it any surprise he's started chirping only minutes after the 49ers made the Super Bowl?

What an absolute ride.

The San Francisco 49ers came back from a 17 point halftime deficit to defeat the Detroit Lions 34-31 and book a date with the Kansas City Chiefs for a Super Bowl rematch in two weeks. This will be the second team that the 49ers will play twice in the Super Bowl, following the Cincinnati Bengals in Super Bowls XVI and XXIII.

It should shock nobody that the social media world has already been going nuts, with one very vocal and very annoying voice in particular.

Nick Wright is an entertaining analyst on First Things First on FS1, but he's also arguably the biggest Brock Purdy hater in the media. His constantly shifting demands on what Purdy had to do to earn his respect culminated in him admitting that he wouldn't give Purdy his due and causing his co-hosts to literally wheel out a set of goalposts and wheel them about.

I'll leave it to you, dear readers, to figure out the metaphor:

Wright is also a very vocal fan of Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs. Not only has he already locked in a win for the Chiefs in two weeks, but he's also given Purdy a very unflattering nickname:

For those not aware of their video game history, Glass Joe is a character in the legendary boxing game Mike Tyson's Punch-Out!!!. He's the hapless first fighter in the game, the guy that users just beat up on like a metaphorical and literal boxing bag.

In short, he has no respect for Purdy's ability to get to the Super Bowl to begin with, and thinks it'll be a walkover.

We'll have two weeks before the Super Bowl, and we'll see how much respect he puts on Purdy's name thereafter.
