Brock Purdy's Week 1 Performance: Ranking and Analysis.

The San Francisco 49ers had a convincing Week 1 victory, defeating the Pittsburgh Steelers 30-7.

The 49ers' offense showcased strong performances from Christian McCaffrey, Brandon Aiyuk, and Deebo Samuel.

Quarterback Brock Purdy had an impressive first half of the game, demonstrating improvement in areas like eye manipulation and pocket presence.

Purdy's Week 1 performance, with 220 yards and two touchdowns, raised questions about his national perception.

Derrik Klassen of the 33rd Team released his weekly quarterback rankings and placed Purdy at No. 23, up from his preseason rank of No. 25.

Klassen acknowledged Purdy's statistical excellence but noted that the 49ers' offensive scheme and skilled players make his job relatively easier.

He mentioned that Purdy's play-making ability outside the pocket adds value, but within the scheme, it's somewhat automatic.

Purdy's No. 23 ranking puts him behind other quarterbacks like Justin Fields, Jimmy Garoppolo, Kenny Pickett, and Jordan Love.

Overall, the analysis suggests that while Purdy performed well, the system and supporting cast played a significant role in his success.
