Philadelphia Eagles beat the San Francisco 49ers in the NFL National Conference. However, Tom Brady, winner of seven Super Bowls in the NFL, rrevealed this Tuesday that the San Francisco 49ers did not have the opportunity to compete in the duel for the National Conference title against the team that will be in the Super Bowl this 2023.
“San Francisco had no chance to compete. It was hard to see that Purdy injury, it’s a reality in the sport; Injuries play a very important role in each game”, asserted the considered best player in history.
You have to remember that the San Francisco team lost their quarterbacks; first Brock Purdy, who was hit on the arm in the first quarter of said game and caused a collateral ligament tear in the right elbow. As a result, Purdy will require six months, after surgery, to recover and thus return to action.
On the other hand, the second quarterbacks who fell in the duel was, Josh Johnson, rookie quarterback, who left the field after suffering a concussion. It is for this reason that without another running back Christian McCaffrey was a play as quarterback, although it did not take away the merit of Eagles.
“In any case, Philadelphia deserved it; they had an amazing season. They played well on defense and forced that play that ended in Brock’s injury. This is a contact sport, a demolition game.” stressed.
Finally, the element that played 15-time Pro Bowl explained how difficult it is for teams to reach the NFL title game with their healthy players.
“You go to the Super Bowl and you should try to have all your mens. Patrick sprained his ankle and that’s how he played against the Bengals; Jalen hurt his shoulder in the weeks leading up to the game against the 49ers,” said Brady, 45, who has played 23 seasons in the NFL.
