On the Super Bowl LVII podcast with Tony Renteria:

#1 Tony, things now get started in Arizona where Super Bowl LVII will be hosted at State Farm Stadium on Sun Feb 12, 2023. Lets start with the Kansas City Chiefs it was a come back game of sorts for them in the AFC Championship getting a game winning field goal to defeat the Cincinnati Bengals 23-20.

#2 Patrick Mahomes under center in Sunday’s AFC Championship game threw for 326 yards, 29-43 and two touchdowns, he might not had the traditional Mahomes performance but it was good enough to get the Chiefs to the Super Bowl.

#3 The Cincinnati Bengals Joe Burrow threw good enough to win but the Bengals chose to throw with under six minutes left in the game and the score tied at the Kanas City 16 yard line but Burrow threw for an interception rather than keep the ball on the ground and lost after turning the ball over to the Chiefs who later kicked for a game winning field goal.

#4 For the Philadelphia Eagles and quarterback Jalen Hurts they handled the San Francisco 49ers at Lincoln Financial Field with lots of offense in a 31-7 ground game affair with Hurts throwing 15-25 for 121 yards and no touchdowns. What was surprising was that Hurts threw no touchdowns but landslided the San Francisco defense all afternoon.

#5 Tony this will be a Super Bowl that will have all the characters of the Chiefs and the Eagles talking big game issues on media days for the next two weeks.

On San Francisco 49ers podcast with David Zizmor:

#1 After the first seven minutes of the game it was over. In the first two minutes San Francisco 49ers Brock Purdy got the elbow injury and the offense for the rest of game was three and out.

#2 With 49ers back up quarterback Josh Johnson there is a reason why he’s been with multiple teams he fumbled and he couldn’t get the 49ers down field and the Philadelphia Eagles defense were daring Johnson to throw the ball.

#3 Looking back on the season the 49ers before Sunday’s NFC Championship loss to the Eagles, the miracle of Purdy getting the 49ers here after 12 straight wins and ten straight wins under Purdy no one would have expected Purdy to get this far.

San Francisco 49ers podcast with Joe Hawkes: How Purdy and Prescott match up in today’s Divisional game

On the 49ers podcast with J Hawkes:

#1 Joe, one thing you could say about San Francisco 49ers quarterback Brock Purdy he’s keeping his mistake ratio down a 1.6% turnover rate the best mark for a quarterback in 2022 and Purdy didn’t even play the entire season.

#2 Purdy is noted for not having big plays and having a throw rate but with the supporting cast around him it’s no problem and Purdy is getting the job done and making the throws when he has to.

#3 Joe, when you compare Jimmy Garoppolo to Purdy, Garoppolo didn’t protect the ball as much as Purdy so analysts are saying there is no reason why Purdy can’t take this team to the Superbowl.

#4 Purdy’s turnover rate since week 13 through 15th out of 30 quarterbacks not bad for a first year under center and called in in an emergency back on Dec 4th. In Purdy’s last four games his turnover rate had dropped 1.6% which is the best rate in the NFL.

#5 Joe, talk about what the Dallas Cowboys Dak Prescott in his last game he handled the Tampa Bay Buccaneers throwing 25-33 for 305 yards with four touchdowns. How do you see the Cowboys and Prescott matching up against the 49ers this afternoon.

On the 49ers podcast with David:

#1 Dave, this Wild Card playoff was not even close the San Francisco 49ers (14-4) landslided the visiting Seattle Seahawks (9-9) behind the amazing quarterbacking of rookie Brook Purdy 41-23 who threw for four touchdowns.

#2 The Seahawks came out in the first half looking like they might make this a competitive contest with a one point 17-16 lead but that was all erased in the second half as the 49ers shutout the Seahawks in the third quarter and opened up the offense with 18 points in the fourth quarter.

#3 Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll during that second half tried to get them on track but quarterback Geno Smith unlike the first half just couldn’t execute in the red zone and the 49ers pass rush keep Smith running in the third quarter where Seattle was shutout.

By Michael Roberson

SANTA CLARA, Calif. — The San Francisco Forty-Niners put themselves into the #2 seed in the NFC, by preventing the Arizona Cardinals from flying around the Silicon Valley skies, 38-13..

Although they wanted to attain the #1 seed, those other birds, top-seeded Philadelphia Eagles,  took care of business in the City of Brotherly Love..

Arizona quieted the full house in Levi;s Stadium with a 77-yard bomb from QB David Blough to receiver AJ Green in less than a minute of the game’s opening drive,  Unfortunately, their kicker, the usually reliable Matt Prater missed the PAT.  

A few minutes later, the all-purpose weapon, Christian McCaffrey caught a 21-yard touchdown from quarterback Brock Purdy, and kicker Robbie Gould made his initial PAT.  After 15 minutes of play, 7-6 Niners.

In the second quarter, the 49ers hit paydirt twice and the Cardinals made it to the house once.

San Francisco running back Alijah Mitchell scampered for a 5-yard TD after a Tashaun Gipson interception of Blough.

Arizona ‘s running back Corey Clement blasted the line for a 1-yard touchdown, bringing the score to a margin of one point, 14-13.

With 19 seconds left in the half,  Niners’ star tight end George Kittle received a 4-yard touchdown, putting them up by eight at intermission, 21-13.

The Santa Clara inhabitants went on a 17-0 run in the third quarter, ballooning their lead to 25, 38-13 after 3,

Mitchell and Kittle both returned to the endzone, Gould kicked a 27-yard field goal and Gipson picked off another pass.

The fourth segment of the game was very uneventful, as the third quarter score remained the same as the final score, 38-13, in favor of the home team.

Mr. RELEVANT (Purdy) threw 3 touchdowns on 178 yards passing for the Niners, while Cardinals’ QB David Blough passed for 180 yards, tossed a touchdown, but had two attempts picked off.

At press time, the 49ers will host either the Green Bay Packers or the Seattle Seahawks next weekend, pending Green Bay’s later scoring total.

Cardinals’ defensive end JJ Watt played his last NFL game with an impressive two sacks to end an incredible career.  He intimated that he was thankful for his time in the league and appreciative of his many accolades.

San Francisco 49ers podcast with Joe Hawkes: Samuel and Mitchell expected back today against Cardinals

On the 49ers podcast with Joe:

#1 Joe, how big is it for the San Francisco 49ers (12-4) to get Deebo Samuel and Elijah Mitchell back do you see them getting into today’s lineup against the Arizona Cardinals (4-12)?

#2 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan said that Deebo is cleared to get in today just how much was he missed out of the line up since getting injured back on week 14 due to knee injuries.

#3 Mitchell returns since spraining his knee back on Nov 27th, Mitchell has had ACL spasms and has only played in four regular season games. How important is it to have Mitchell back as the post season starts next week.

#4 The 49ers will rest guard Aaron Banks who is out with knee and ankle sprains and Dre Greenlaw who is out with a back injury. The 49ers have said they will rest both players today against the Cardinals and both are expected back in the playoffs.

#5 Finally Joe how much of an impact has it been on the Cardinals who play against the 49ers today at Levi Stadium since they lost quarterback Kyler Murray. Murray sustained a knee injury on a quarterback keeper during week 14 that put him out for the rest of the season and he is not expected to be there at the beginning of next season either.
