The world was abuzz this week after tech mogul Elon Musk’s latest tweet about the San Francisco 49ers and their rookie quarterback, Brock Purdy. Musk’s tweet, which was accompanied by a picture of Purdy, read “Heres a look at every Mr. Irrelevant as we rank the top five”.
The tweet seemed to be a reference to the NFL’s “Mr. Irrelevant” tradition, where the last player taken in the draft is given the title of “Mr. Irrelevant”. This year, Purdy was the last pick of the draft, making him the latest recipient of the title.
But while many were quick to praise Musk’s tweet, others were quick to point out that the Mr. Irrelevant title was actually first awarded in 1976, meaning that Purdy would not qualify for the title.
The confusion over the tweet only deepened when analysts began to wonder how exactly Purdy could be considered “top five” when he had only been in the league for a few months.
Ultimately, the confusion over Musk’s tweet was overshadowed by the excitement of Purdy’s playoff debut, which ended with a win for the 49ers. But while Purdy’s success on the field was certainly impressive, it’s clear that Musk’s tweet left some scratching their heads.
