You need a TD and you got 90 - 120 seconds to drive down the field and your life depends on it. You are picking Montana over Manning every time.
That is certainly debatable and not the absolute you make it out to be. Probably the QB with the best history of last minute heroics is John Elway. I know that he has by far the most 4th quarter comebacks anyway. (47 vs 32 for Joe). I wouldnt be upset having Montana, Elway, Manning, or Brady with the ball in their hands at the end.
Im taking Montana, that MNF game when Montana was with the Chiefs and beat Elway on a last minute drive proved to me I would take Montana over Elway. I dunno, my 49er glasses are on. Montana is God. I'm taking Montana over anyone in pretty much any situation
LOL You are 22 years old and were in diapers when the Niners won Superbowls with Montana. I just find it funny that you make such blanket statements that Joe is absolutley the guy who is the best at last minute comebacks when you cant remember a game he played as a Niner. I think Montana was great but I also recognize that guys like Brady, Manning, and especially Elway were every bit as good at last quarter comebacks.
Thank God for the invention of the video tape then huh?
I'm sure there is video tape of all the Niners games and comebacks during that era that you have studied. I also am sure that you did the same for John Elway.
I am not debating that Montana was great in Superbowls ( well he wasnt really all that special in SB 16 to tell you the truth) but only that he is not CLEARLY the best comeback QB of all time. He is one of them.
You may not remember but in SB 23 he almost blew the game by making a horrible throw in the endzone that was right in the hands of Billups. If that pick is made the Niners dont win that game.
Joe is my all time favorite QB. I just recognize that there are others who were equally amazing with the ball in their hands at the end of a game.
