The 49ers on CBS uploaded Purdy’s post-game conference snippet on X captioned, “Purdy has nothing but respect for Mahomes 💯.” Purdy briefly mulled over the Niners’ mistakes and elaborated more on Mahomes’ performance, saying, “He’s a baller” and a “competitor.”

“One of the best to ever do it, honestly. Makes plays and obviously got a great arm and stuff but I just feel like you know the way he moves,  his pocket movement and being able to run the ball when his offense needed it, and more than that man he’s a competitor and like we say going into this game man you just don’t wanna let him have the ball because he can obviously do a lot of damage with it so he’s a baller.”
