I don't even think there is a comparison here. When it's time for the big boys to play, Montana shined. There was something magical about Joe Montana. He not only defeated, but demolished 2 hall of fame quarterbacks in super bowls and had the come from behind 92 yard drive against the bengals in Super Bowl 23.
You *might* be able to compare Tom Brady, but Montana didn't need the kicker to win it for him, Montana never lost in the big game, and Montana never had Walsh talking in his ear telling him where the blitz was coming from illegally. Now I know most people want to move past the cheating, but the fact is THEY cheated. When you get that type of punishment... you get the point.
At the end of the day
I'll take the guy who elevates his play EVEN higher when it counts.
Remember it well, then... this night, this
great victory. So that in the years ahead, you can say, I was
there that night, with Arthur, the King! For it is the doom of men
that they forget.
It's amazing to me how easily people forget and dismiss the legend that helped deliver us 4 super bowl titles. Best Quarterback Ever.
