What should the San Francisco 49ers do with their quarterback position? Are they safe keeping third-stringer Brock Purdy behind center or should they bring in another veteran?

Former NFL quarterback Sean Salisbury joined the Carmichael Dave Show with Jason Ross Tuesday to talk about the injury to Jimmy Garoppolo, how the 49ers should handle Purdy and more.

Topics discussed include:

  • The San Francisco 49ers Super Bowl chances with Brock Purdy behind center
  • Baker Mayfield isn’t going to come in and take over for a guy who played well against the Miami Dolphins
  • Brock Purdy can throw the football, but the experience is the biggest issue
  • What Sean would do if he was in the 49ers’ quarterbacks room
  • The 49ers were going to start Trey Lance, who also had little experience
  • What it is like to become the starter when you were a backup quarterback
  • Brock should be Brock and shouldn’t try to be like Jimmy or Trey
