As the NFL Playoffs approach, an important question will be answered in the coming weeks:

The Athletic’s Matt Barrows joined The Carmichael Dave Show with Jason Ross on Tuesday morning to give his take on San Francisco before heading into a first-round bye week, discuss how impactful quarterback Brock Purdy has been in his first full NFL season, and much more.
