Brock Purdy’s Super Bowl Loss: A One-Time Defeat or A Career Omen?

There are two types of quarterbacks who have played in the Super Bowl: those who won multiple rings, as is the case with Tom Brady, and those others who missed their first and only chance at the Big Game.

The team had returned to Super Bowl for the second time in five years after winning the NFC West with almost no opposition and emphatic victories over the Green Bay Packers y los Detroit Lions in the playoffs.

Even the Super Bowl, which this year was played at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, Nevada, got off to a promising start for the Niners, who finished the first half with a 10-3 lead. However, in the end, they lost 25-22 in overtime against the Kansas City Chiefs of Patrick Mahomes.

The defeat was a hard blow for the Californian franchise, and it remains to be seen if the team and Purdyin particular, will they be able to recover and return to the Big Game and even if they will be able to win it.

The quarterbacks who were one hit wonders

Although Purdy He is barely in his second year, with his entire career ahead of him, analysts and fans are already beginning to compare him with other quarterbacks who had glory within reach and never had another opportunity to be crowned champions.

Jared Goff is another player from this new generation of quarterbacks who has demonstrated his talent in the Super Bowlalthough he lost the Super Bowl LIII under the reins of the Los Angeles Rams. However, his recent performance at the head of the Detroit Lionswhom he led to the NFC championship game, has generated great hopes around him.

Joe Burrow leading the Cincinnati Bengals in Super Bowl LVI and Jalen Hurts with the Philadelphia Eagles in Super Bowl LVII also showed qualities to lead their team to the Big Game.
