49ers QB Purdy’s luck perfectly explained by Bomani Jones

0 7

On Tuesday night’s “Late Night with Seth Meyers,” the host asked Jones if Purdy will ever come back to Earth. The HBO and ESPN personality compared the 49ers QB’s winning streak to his own Emmy — an award he says he just got for being there.

Jones received an Emmy in 2015 for being an executive producer for an installment of the “30 for 30” docuseries about Randy Moss. He clarified to Meyers that he “got” an Emmy rather than “won” one and used that as a springboard to Purdy. “They would have won an Emmy no matter what I had done,” he said. “That makes it better. Because I just got it!”

“I hope that Brock Purdy has the proper perspective to understand that while he is doing his job, if they win a Super Bowl, he gonna get one,” Jones said. “Like we don’t have to make it more than it actually is. We can appreciate that. Wow, you showed up for work late, and then next thing you know everything went well and you got a win? Great for you!”

This has been a frequent talking point when discussing Purdy’s performance. Purdy is doing what needs to be done, but the nature of the talent surrounding him on offense, the league’s best defense and the wizardry from the coaching staff are significantly more responsible for how well the 49ers are doing.

Purdy was certainly thrust into an excellent situation when he replaced an injured Jimmy Garoppolo. But in addition to hitting his throws and executing Kyle Shanahan’s game plan, he’s extended plays on his own. George Kittle said that “I’m literally not even in the read” on his massive game-swinging catch against the Cowboys.

Even if Purdy is being carried, though, all wins still count the same. That goes for rings just as much it does for Emmys.
