How badly is Brock Purdy underpaid? And is Mike McDaniel really cool?

The Dan Le Batard Show with Stugotz discusses Purdy’s paltry salary and about whether McDaniel was just playing up for the camera while mic’d up on Sunday.

It may be impolite to talk money in some circles, but that is exactly what The Dan Le Batard Show with Stugotz was doing on Wednesday. Specifically, they were talking about Brock Purdy’s money ... or lack thereof.

Yes, Brock Purdy makes less in a season than some QBs make in one game! While previewing this week’s big Dolphins-Eagles matchup, Billy happened to be surfing the web and found a fun little thing where you could see how quickly every quarterback earns Brock Purdy’s salary for the year. So let’s play “How quickly does (insert name) earn Brock Purdy’s salary!”

First up Kirk Cousins. How long does it take Kirk Cousins to earn Brock Purdy’s entire salary for the season? Stugotz throws out a game and a half for Cousins to earn Purdy’s whole salary. Was he right? NOOOOOO!!! Billy says it takes 30 MINUTES for Cousins to match Purdy’s salary. So basically, half a game. As Tony points out, decent gig.

Chris wants to bring some chaos to Purdy’s world and wonders: Should Brock Purdy hold out? Stugotz: Yes! Billy: No! Billy says he will get replaced by someone else, they’ll find someone else. Billy points out that Chris Simms who said that Brock Purdy is good because he does exactly what Kyle Shanahan wants him to do. Once he gets cute and trying to make it about him, Shanahan will just replace him with someone else who can do exactly what he wants him to do. Then again, as Chris points out, Simms said Tua wasn’t that good, so he’s had some misses.

Meanwhile, Chris just loves his coach. And he has the video clip to prove why.

Other members of the crew have a question: Are we sure McDaniel is cool? Well, as a sneakerhead, I can say he earned MAJOR points by wearing the Off-White x Nike Air Force 1s on Sunday.

If that ain’t cool, I don’t know what is.

Out on the West Coast, meanwhile, Charlotte’s worlds collided as her Oddball family came together with her GoJo and Golic family and her Dan Le Batard Show family, as Mike Golic Jr. joined her, Dan and Amin in L.A. for content Thanksgiving.
