Brock Purdy had ice-cold one-word response to Taylor Swift Super Bowl question


Brock Purdy is all about business and isn’t entertaining any of the fanfare around Taylor Swift.

The biggest game of the NFL season takes place on Sunday at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas as the Kansas City Chiefs take on the San Francisco 49ers.

Taylor Swift’s romance with Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce has dominated the build-up to the game with Kelce even responding to proposal rumours on Super Bowl opening night.

Purdy answered questions with Patrick Mahomes at the giant media event on Monday and was asked about potentially disappointing Swift by winning the Super Bowl for the 49ers.

“It’s late in the 4th quarter… Are you prepared to disappoint Taylor Swift?” he was asked.

“Yes”, a cold-blooded Purdy responded.

49ers fans were loving his ice-cold response and remarked on how focused he looked.

“My goat is so locked in,” said one Niners fan.

“Purdy is dialed in,” commented another.

“Damn right my king,” a third wrote.

“Brock wouldn’t even look at Mahomes when he was talking…His face was expressionless, the dude is locked the **** in…,” responded a fourth.

Purdy was stood next to Mahomes throughout the segment and the latter admitted he used to watch Purdy in college.

The pair are worlds apart when it comes to their NFL contracts but the mutual respect is clear.

“I’ve seen Brock play since college, I knew how good he was,” Mahomes said.

“I watched him play — I watch the Big 12 a lot so I watched him play a ton. He was a winner and he made plays happen all through his college career.

“Usually when you can make it happen in college, no matter what your surroundings are, and turn around a program like he did at Iowa State, you’re going to make it happen when you get your opportunity in the NFL.

“So I wasn’t very surprised he’s had the success that he’s had because he’s a winner and he’s a guy that goes out there and competes, and I’ve always said, more than a football player, you’ve got to be someone who competes, and he’s always been one of those guys.”

It comes after fans were surprised to learn that Mahomes and Purdy share a wild MLB link through their fathers.

Purdy has been on quite the journey since being selected dead last in the 2022 NFL Draft.

That earned him the nickname ‘Mr.Irrelevant’ but he has silenced the doubters and is now very much Mr. Relevant.

He led the 49ers to a 14-5 record this season as Kyle Shanahan’s team secured another NFC West title and the No.1 seed in the NFC.

Purdy had an MVP-calibre season and was a major factor in the 49ers staging a remarkable come-from-behind victory against the Lions in the NFC title game.

The 24-year-old signal caller completed 20-of-31 passes for 267 yards, one TD, one interception and an 89 rating in the 34-31 win.

On Sunday he could become the second-youngest starting quarterback (after Ben Roethlisberger) to win a Super Bowl and the first ‘Mr. Irrelevant’ quarterback to do so.
