With you on taking the hits. That’s a legit concern.Really impressive what he is doing but I wonder if the creating out of structure is going to get him in trouble. He seems to like to reset his throwing foundation close to the sideline which takes a lot of time and will end up with him taking some big hits. If he just threw on the run instead of fully setting his feet he'd protect himself more. I admit I haven't seen him play much so perhaps last night was just trying to do a little bit more in the playoffs but I was really surprised how many times he tried to get a big play off right at the sideline. He nearly took a couple big hits as a result and a team with a better pass rush will likely get to him if he does something similar.
The upside to what he does though is he doesn’t throw stupid passes on the run because of this. It’s either getting it to someone or throwing it away. Many rookie QBs (and veterans) in the same circumstances are throwing dumb picks in those situations. Purdy doesn’t.
