The San Francisco 49ers quarterback situation in 2022 has been very interesting.
However, another season-ending injury puts the ball in the hands of the 49ers rookie third-string quarterback.
With his two starts, he’s putting up solid numbers.
But do his numbers make him the best quarterback for the 49ers this season?
NFL Analyst Feels Brock Purdy Is The Best QB For The 49ers
With his tweet on Friday, NFL analyst Don Kleiman thinks Brock Purdy is the best quarterback for the 49ers.

While he tweets how Purdy ranks number one in three statistics, the sample size is extremely low.
Comparing him to other quarterbacks who have played all season is a little unfair.
However, the rookie quarterback is doing all the right things for his team in crunch situations.
While these numbers put him in front of 41 other qualifying quarterbacks, it’s still too soon to get on the Purdy train.
But with his solid play, he’s given the 49ers their 22nd NFC West division title in team history.
However, some of his accomplishments come from him having a solid receiving core.
They are making him shine, just like they did with Garoppolo this season.
So, while Kleiman feels the best quarterback was on the bench, he still has a lot to prove in the NFL.
