Recent NFL MVP winners
If you look at the past five MVP winners, they’ve all been quarterbacks. With how the NFL is going with the passing offense, the MVP award has become somewhat synonymous with the most statistically productive quarterback. Purdy is one of four quarterbacks with at least 50 dropbacks not to throw an interception. He’s tied for fourth in the league in passing touchdowns, second in yards per attempt, eighth in passing yards, and third in completion percentage.
As mentioned, the 49ers are 5-0 and are the favorites to win the Super Bowl. Last season, the 49ers lost in the NFC championship game to the Philadelphia Eagles after Purdy injured his elbow. After that, backup quarterback Josh Johnson also got hurt. The situation resulted in running back Christian McCaffrey taking snaps at quarterback until Purdy came back in only to hand the ball off.
