Speak of the 49ers this offseason has all revolved across the quarterback place.
Final week, Steve Younger sat down with Matt Maiocco for the 49ers Speak podcast. Who higher to interrupt up the quarterback controversy than a Corridor of Famer who has been by means of one himself.
This is what Younger needed to say about every of the three quarterbacks.
“We’ve this unbelievable and distinctive human being named Brock Purdy. And I am not going to restrict it. I am not going to say, oh he is not greater, he is not as robust, he is not as quick, I am not going to restrict him. I believe he is simply an extremely distinctive human made to quarterback and let him prepare dinner. I do not understand how else to say it. I do not need to prejudge something and say he can or cannot do it. I believe something is feasible with Brock.
“However the factor is, he tore a ligament. I used to be speaking to Dr. ElAttrache who does quite a bit. We had been speaking about all that. He mentioned, to start with, he would have performed issues otherwise. However that is simply one other opinion. One factor for positive, if he stays on monitor, there is a six-month interval to carry him to full energy. What’s uncommon is he does it on a regular basis for baseball. He did it three or 4 occasions for soccer, however not within the automobile crash situation as he described it for Brock, so he is undecided. And so, he is undecided. No one can know precisely how it is going to go. If Brock is prepared for the primary recreation, it isn’t going to be 100%. Whoever says he can snatch a go six months later; I do not assume that belies actuality. cannot play ninety p.c. We’ll see the way it goes. If he is prepared, I am positive they’re going to play him.
“There is a therapy, I name it ‘energy’, it is like a Star Wars analogy. It is one thing you possibly can’t describe. It is simply any person has ‘energy.’ he wasn’t the largest, he is not the quickest, he is not the strongest arm, however he has the energy, possibly as robust as anybody who performs.
“You additionally discuss tradition, progressive assault, name for play and expertise, all of it comes collectively. It is easy to say “the final draft choose, to his top, arm energy and every thing else, there are limits.” Once we discuss Brock Purdy, I do not assume it’s best to say it that manner as a result of I believe he is the sort of man that is going to make you appear to be a mannequin.
“To begin with, if I am Trey, I am not leaving as a result of that is the place I will learn how good I may be. I mentioned the identical to Jimmy (Garoppolo). So attempt to keep so long as you possibly can and discover methods to get on the court docket. And power your manner onto the court docket, make it your job. Somebody has your job, go get it. Go show that the constraints that we expect you have had previously, that we have had so little knowledge that we’re guessing anyway. Go put all that stuff to relaxation and say to your self, “I am a lot greater than you than I’ve ever been. I believe it could be enjoyable, if I used to be Trey, I might be wanting ahead to going and doing this. Go present everybody.”
“Anybody who says, ‘Trey cannot’, why? What knowledge. ‘Oh, a recreation. A play within the state of North Dakota. Like, come a person. Cease. You have no idea. And I do not assume he is aware of. However he wants a chance to show it. I do not know if he’ll get it.
“If I am Trey Lance, I am doing every thing I can. And he’s doing it proper now. It is my job. I am going to go get it. And I will create my very own narrative about what I can and possibly cannot do.
“I am a Sam Darnold fan. My intestine tells me that he was capable of do one thing actually arduous, which was to obtain a very unhealthy hand, and ship some flares saying, “I am superb.” I’m attempting to grasp. It does not appear to be a lot proper now, however do not go away me behind. So as a result of he was capable of do it in New York and Carolina, and Carolina, the system was simply horrible for quarterbacks. I assumed he confirmed me indicators, give me one thing to work with, give me some clay and I am going to make you look nice.
“Do not sleep on Sam Darnold. Sam is as proficient as anybody within the league at doing the issues that we, you understand, the skin issues like arm energy, mobility and all that. As soon as once more, he should present that he has the energy.
“I believe we’ve three which might be distinctive, individualized. The Venn diagram doesn’t have many intersections. There’s Trey. There’s Brock attempting to regain his well being. And there is Sam attempting to determine methods to get on the pitch.
“If there’s someplace you want they had been, it is right here. If anybody, I would love him to be educated by his Kyle right here. We will watch it unfold. If somebody says, ‘I do know what is going on to occur’, I do not assume you possibly can know what is going on to occur proper now.”
