Brock Purdy has officially had a full season’s worth of starts and the numbers are impressive, to say the least.

Following the 49ers’ 42-19 demolition of the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday at Lincoln Financial Field, Purdy has now started 17 times last season, the equivalent of a full NFL campaign.

In 17 combined starts, Purdy has completed 318 of his 456 pass attempts (69.7 percent) for 4,283 yards and 34 touchdowns to eight interceptions with a passer rating of 116.9.

Those totals in a 17-game season would give Purdy the 49ers single-season record for most passing yards by a San Francisco quarterback, beating Jeff Garcia’s mark of 4,278 yards, set in 2000. Purdy’s 34 passing touchdowns would be third-most. The 49ers quarterback finished one season behind Hall of Famer Steve Young, who threw for 36 in 1998 and 35 in 1994.

Purdy’s 116.9 passer rating would be the best for any 49ers quarterback who has started more than three games in a single season and would be eighth-best all-time among NFL counterparts.

The second-year signal-caller has inserted himself into the NFL MVP conversation after his 314-yard, four-touchdown performance against the Eagles and the 49ers could be on their way to making franchise history with five games remaining in the regular season . Season.
