Brock Purdy’s emotional dad wipes away tears after his son’s dominant performance against Tom Brady’s Tampa Bay

MR. Irrelevant’s NFL career got off to a flying start.

Brock Purdy, 22, was the 262nd pick in the 2022 NFL draft and went to the San Francisco 49ers to support starlet Trey Lance and veteran Jimmy Garoppolo.

However, an injury to Lance earlier in the season, followed by one more recently to Garoppolo, has resulted in Purdy becoming the latest rookie quarterback to start this season.

Purdy came off the bench and made a strong impression in place of Garoppolo in the 33-17 win over the Miami Dolphins, rushing for 210 yards, two touchdowns and a single pick.

But his NFL career really took off in Week 14 when he first took to the field as a starter — and it faced none other than the GOAT, Tom Brady.

Purdy didn’t seem to be in the spotlight, throwing for 185 yards, two touchdowns and zero interceptions as they swept aside the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 35-7.

And in the stands, Purdy’s family looked on, including his visibly proud father, who was caught wiping away tears during the game.

After the game, Purdy said he saw his father’s footage and explained, “Seeing you after that performance meant a lot to me. [I’m] very blessed to have them as my family.”

Of course, social media reacted quickly to the emotional shots.

One fan commented: “Proud dad. To see your child make their dream come true, special moment!”

Another said: “Purdy was great! Let those happy tears fall, Mr. Purdy, because we are all with you.”

While one joked, “These are tears of regret in honor of all the defenders his son is torching right now.”

Now it’s up to Purdy to wrap up what is sure to be an emotional weekend as the 9-4 49ers take on the 7-6 Seattle Seahawks in Thursday Night Football in just a few days.
