The San Francisco 49ers booked their flights to Las Vegas after mounting an incredible comeback against the Detroit Lions in the NFC Championship game on Sunday. Brock Purdy was in the middle of everything the Niners did right during their second-half comeback.
His play during that second half sparked plenty of talking points over social media. One of these conversations compared him to the man who soundly beat him the last timer they met.
Emmanuel Acho uses San Francisco 49ers’ Purdy to start Lamar Jackson debate
Former Philadelphia Eagles linebacker and SPEAK host Emmanuel Acho was tuning into the Niners-Lions game. Like most fans, he shared his thoughts on the game as Purdy and San Fran fought back from a 24-7 deficit to take the lead.
He used one of Purdy’s plays off the line of scrimmage to call out Lamar Jackson of the Baltimore Ravens:
If Lamar Jackson makes this play the internet loses its mind, but it’s just Brock Purdy, so “he got lucky!”

Fans were quick to draw their lines on the media personality’s hot take. Some called him out for vehemently being a Purdy bandwagoner.
Why are you glazing purdy so hard? 😂

glazes Purdy but wants to diss Justin Herbert, this guy man

Others called him out for making such a comparison in the first place:
Both of them are mediocre.

Why are you comparing😂 You cant just give credit where its due?

No one is saying that, it was a great play. Stop trying to create controversy where there isn’t any

Purdy had a great day in front of the Niners Faithful. He finished the day with 267 passing yards for one passing TD and a 98.40 QB rating. He also rushed five times for 48 yards, keeping Detroit’s defense on their toes.
Brock Purdy’s struggles against Jackson’s Ravens
The Purdy-Jackson narrative Acho started would remind fans to the last time these two met, and the game painted a different picture.
The Iowa State product struggled against the top-seeded AFC team, throwing for 255 passing yards while giving away four interceptions. Meanwhile, Jackson had two touchdowns to go with his 252 yards.
Some might say that it’s pointless to bring up the past when the Ravens lost when it mattered most. However, Super Bowl LVIII would have a different feel if the two were the ones that would meet in Vegas.
