Small point, but the niners threw for over 300 yards only once this season… in the game where the Chiefs blew them out.Purdy and Jimmy G have virtually identical stats this season. Both at 67% comp %, Purdy is at 8.1 Y/A, Jimmy 7.9 Y/A. I'd say they are both largely system QBs playing in a top 3 system when you include the supporting cast. Ironically Jimmy G had a lower INT % this season which is usually his issue. It will be interesting to see if/when Purdy needs to throw how he performs given he hasn't had a 300yd passing game yet and over 250yds only once. He has done a great job doing what he has been asked he just hasn't been asked to do much.
Purdy isn’t going to throw over 300 (just like Lance and Jimmy didn’t) by design.
