    Should 49ers sign Baker Mayfield?

    as a backup to Purdy? He just got released by the Panthers.

    He actually would fit well in Shanahan's system, with constant roll outs, bootlegs. But once the defenses tighten in the second half, he'd be in trouble.

    But I watched a lot of Purdy in college. He is terrible. If he plays well long term, I'd be shocked. And if so, it would make his college coach look real bad since he was bad in most of the big games they played.

    Purdy certainly and most definitely was not terrible at Iowa St. I bet on them as dogs a lot when he was there. Certainly no superstar but far from terrible.

    In 2019 and 2021 he was actually pretty dang good

    Biloxi, how big of a dropoff do see, JimmyG to Purdy?

    Of course, there's the experience factor. At least some skill dropoff, I would think.

    Sometimes, if the personnel is set up to succeed AROUND the QB...the QB change doesn't matter too much. I'll have eyes open on what the Niner lines look like.

    They already have Josh Johnson. More experience and less drama.

    If they get Mayfield, won't it only be for the league minimum?
    If so, 49ers 100% should pick him up, even if it turns out he is playing behind Purdy.
    They have no #2 QB right now.

    I'm a Niners fan and I'm glad they didn't even go anywhere near Baker. He's a bust and I'd rather have Josh Johnson as the backup to Purdy which says a lot about Baker.

    He just needs to put his mind to it and be the only player to take the field for every team. Journeyman QB

    Jimmy G doesn't need surgery and could be back in 7-8 weeks.

    As a 49er fan Jimmy is like an annoying relative you just can't get rid of

    Why not Kapernick? All the 49ers fans are they thems hims and hers anyway. Not sure why it's not done.

    Joe Montana says they should pick up Matt Ryan provided there’s no bad blood between him and Shanahan.
