In his second NFL start, he helped the 49ers clinch the NFC West division title.
While his play now ensures the team a playoff spot, fans might think he can do more this season.
With his current performance, fans might feel he can lead the team to the Super Bowl.
However, are these hopes too much for the rookie quarterback, or can he lead his team to the Super Bowl?
49ers Super Bowl Chances Rest On Their Defense
The 49ers are Super Bowl contenders because of their dominant defense.
While Purdy is doing well, it’s their defense which will lead the team to a Super Bowl.
The 49ers are SERIOUS Super Bowl Contenders because of their DOMINANT Defense. What Brock Purdy has given them the last 3 weeks has been more than enough.

However, Purdy is doing everything right to help the 49ers win games.
His last three games have seen him throwing two touchdowns in each game.
But, it’s the team’s defense that shines the most in San Francisco.
While Purdy can score points, he can’t get into a shootout with a hi-octane offense.
If the defense cracks, Purdy might not have what the 49ers offense needs to make a comeback.
With playoff teams facing elimination each game they play, they won’t lay down for a rookie quarterback.
However, this doesn’t mean he isn’t a solid quarterback for the 49ers offense.
He does everything right to help get his team a win with every game he’s in.
But it’s their defense, and not Purdy, who will shoulder the team into the Super Bowl.
