No....this is the year we bought the superbowl....we would've won it with steve or joe.
I disagree 100% Montana wouldnt have beaten the Cowboys in 92 or 93 either. It was Youngs time and team...
-Joe had no business beating America's Team & The Doomday Defense
-Joe had no business beating Marino's "high powered" offense
-Everyone counted him out In '86, when he injured his back in week 1, and required immediate surgery; doctors strongly suggested he retire. Joe had no business returning to the field.
-When Joe was knocked out by Leonard Marshall and missed all of '91 and most of '92, he had no business coming back.
-Joe had no business leading the '93 Chiefs to their only AFC Championship game (post AFL). Nor did he have any business making the AFC Pro Bowl that year, either.
-KC's last playoff victory to date-- Joe had no business leading them to that, too.
So please, don't tell me with Joe Montana behind center, that you'd "100% guarantee" to count him out against any team. Besides, Steve was a wet, hot mess in the post-season in '92 & '93.
In '92 Steve had 4 turnovers in a 20-16 win over Washington, then against Dallas, we were tied 10-10 at halftime. In the 4th quarter Young threw 2 crucial INTs and we lost a very winnable game (by "Joe standards") by 10 AT home. Joe WINS that game.
In '93... Cowboys were tough, but so was Joe. Always.
