‘Corralling’ Brock Purdy Key For Eagles Against 49ers

Philadelphia Eagles new defensive coordinator Sean Desai has identified 49ers QB Brock Purdy as the dangerman in Monday’s upcoming matchup. 

Brock Purdy leads the league with a 70.2 completion percentage, 9.4 passing yards per attempt and a 112.3 passer rating. His average of 9.4 passing yards per attempt is 0.99 more than Tua Tagovailoa, who is the next closest with 8.4.

According to Desai, Brock Purdy is dangerous due to his elusiveness and decisiveness in broken play.

“Brock’s playing at a high level. Really efficient with the ball,” Sean Desai said. 

“Getting the ball out with rhythm and timing to his receivers. I think they do a good job mixing the run and pass. And Brock really runs that offense really well. And he’s feeling really comfortable doing that.”

Sean Desai has Philly’s rush-defense playing well with the second-fewest rushing yards allowed in the NFL. However, they are tied 12th for sacks after leading all teams in 2022. The passing defense has been disrupted due to injuries. All the same, the Eagles have a plan for Purdy on Sunday.

“And he keeps his eyes up field and is able to target some explosives downfield that way too. We will have to have a good plan corralling him and getting tight to some of these routes so we can contest some of the throws that they throw.”
