    Just on the TE blocking - Joe Thomas just gave his thoughts on it in a thread which are along the same lines as mine

    Quite possibly the worst news coming out of that game...if not the worst, not far off. Purdy with a complete tear, needing surgery, probably minimum 6 months recovery, that leads right into August & training camp.

    Here we go! I'm in the go talk with Brady camp when you're allowed, suck it up & see if they can work something out for a year. Sure up that O-Line for Brady, then keep it for Purdy. Brady will naturally attract a few good free agents. The cap has gone up something like 15 million. We dont need Brady to run, or throw it deep, just dink & dunk to Ayuik, Deebo, CMC, Kittle. Try & do a Manning & Broncos last ride. Doesn't matter if he just hangs on with the team, if it gets us the 6th.

    As an Eagles fans this is pretty much on point for me. I actually think if Brock stays in then the game is decided by a score here or there either way as at that stage of the game the SF Defense were getting on top.

    The injury lottery is what kills most teams chances at this time of the year and like you say there is pretty much nothing that can be done! Aside from muscular injuries that you can somewhat do some prep for there is nothing that can be done to avoid what happened to Purdy or even Bosa who had an unbelievable game carrying a bit of a knock.

    The Eagles campaign over the last few years died on injury hill with no O-Line to work with. Some of the squad leaders and captains were out, Lane and Brandon Graham etc and unfortunately at this level you cannot do without them. Its bad luck and unfortunately for you guys you were decimated in the most important position on the field. SF have the makings of a team that will go close over the next couple of years again if they can plug this QB gap.

    Hopefully Brady comes in close to vet minimum for the opportunity to play for his childhood team.

    Would rather just ride with Lance if Brady is asking for any type of decent money. With him it is similar to his last year with the Patriots, has his performances fallen off a cliff or is it the team that is a mess? It was the latter the last time but I wouldnt want to risk a very tight cap situation on it not being at least somewhat the former this time.

    Well it won't be Tommy coming home!

    Limits the options for the Niners if they were thinking of a short term QB. Either Brock heals up, or they'll roll with Lance until Brock's ready. Everybody else would want a longer contract including Jimmy. They need to go big in free agency on a couple of O line guys...Fant is UFA as is centre Kelce, a big signing will help sure up that least one.

    Looks like Brock needs full Tommy John surgery...that's at least 1 year. No 2023 for him if so. On Twitter from one source....disaster if so.

    That one opinion seems to have set up Niner fans of course! Some random Dr. just giving his opinion. Coach & GM of the 'opinion' that it'll be the 6 months recovery, with the 6 months being full go. Until Brock gets that surgery it's really up in the air.

    That last interview with both guys was pretty full on. Jimmy is done (he was done last season though!!) and we're rolling with Trey & Brock and probably a seasoned vet as back up QB3. John Lynch is staying. Kyle looked exhausted during that interview. During the 12 game win streak he looked good, less stressed than before, but he looked wrecked yesterday.

    Teams after facing the Niners this year 0-16. Enjoy the loss Philly!

  • Registered Users Posts: 21,315 ✭✭✭✭ Podge_irl

    Teams having the 9ers are 0-15 the week after. Chiefs won following a bye, same reason eagles doesn’t count.

    The expectation is Purdy will be back in 6 months and I don’t see any reason to doubt that.

    Amazing work from the 49ers on comp picks - basically get a second draft class, with an additional 7 picks. Apparently totals to the value of the overall 5th pick in the draft.

    Going into the draft with 11 picks after giving away picks for Lance and McCaffrey is huge.

    Plenty of ammo to move around or make trades for vets if they wanted. I thought they didn't have room to make all their picks last year but they did (or most any).

    Don't think they'll be super active next week, maybe one big swing but most likely a few starter/rotation level guys

  • Registered Users Posts: 270 ✭✭ myate

    More active than we thought yesterday I think! DL is gonna be lit this season...Bosa, Armstead, Hargraves, Jackson! Darnold one I'm ok with, we need 4 qbs on the roster, 3 active, draft another guy for practice squad...I know a lot are saying Jake Haener, which would be cool, but might not be there when we pick. If Trey Lance can't beat out Darnold, then that says enough. Purdy, providing rehab goes well, should be presumptive starter, no question...but might not be til week 2/3.

    I think they pick up one or two more guys today, maybe O line or secondary. Right now they're banking on young guys on the o-line, which is risky but could pay off. Zakelj & Poe are waiting in the wings & have high potential, more so than Banks who was a 2nd rounder & played solid this past season.
