Meanwhile, 49ers fans are optimistic, as they should be. Last year’s 49ers team had an opportunity to make the Super Bowl but Brock Purdy suffered an injury early against the Philadelphia Eagles. Down to their fourth-string QB, they had no chance. This year is their do-over year and they should be as motivated as the Lions or more.
