George Kittle references Brock Purdy’s NSFW nickname
The San Francisco 49ers are hoping Brock Purdy can do for them what Nick Foles did for the Philadelphia Eagles five years ago. Fittingly, the two quarterbacks have similar nicknames.
Eagles fans made Foles’ “Big D–k Nick” nickname famous when he took over for an injured Carson Wentz in 2018 and led the team to a Super Bowl. Purdy, a rookie out of Iowa State who was the last pick in the 2022 NFL Draft, played well in relief of Garoppolo on Sunday after Garoppolo suffered a broken foot.
Purdy shared an Instagram post on Monday celebrating the 33-17 victory over the Miami Dolphins. 49ers tight end George Kittle commented “BCB.”

That “BCB” stands for “Big C–k Brock.” Kittle obviously wants the nickname to become a thing, even if he cannot admit it publicly.
Purdy went 25/37 for 210 yards, 2 touchdowns and an interception against Miami. His best throw of the game came on a crucial 3rd-and-10 play when he found Kittle over the middle of the field as Purdy was taking a big hit.

The Niners improved to 8-4 with the win. They remain in the driver’s seat in the NFC West. One 49ers veteran has a good reason for being confident in Purdy going forward. Judging by the nickname Kittle is using for Purdy, he feels the same way.
