Bill speaking the truth, sometimes I wonder if guys like Dirty were even alive then, it seems like their Joe moments all come from highlight reels. For example everyone knows about "the catch" but how many people actually remember how poorly Joe played in that game up until that infamous play? He is one of the best not because he put up crazy stats all the time, but because most of the time when the chips were down, he was clutch. Definitely the best QB in the one category that you want (Superbowl wins) but it wasn't ever like he was the guy carrying the team, he always had great defenses and a top tier running game. I was a fan of his even before the Niners got him, my grandpa was a Notre Dame fan and I saw most of Joe's college play as well. He wasn't perfect he had some limitations like every QB does, the thing that made him so great was what Walsh taught him in the WCO system and the clutchness that made him Joe Cool.
Lol wow a guy from Memphis is trying to school me on the career of Joe Montana. You guys must feel really smart trying to point out the flaws of the greatest QB of all time.
It would seem like you should brush up on your knowledge, and what does where I come from have anything to do with it? Does it make you feel like a better fan because of where you live? Should you feel bad that someone from 2k miles away knows more about Montana than you? I think not, I have been watching Niner games since 1980 and the advent of satellite TV, and Joe Montana since his college days. My point is how you guys make the guy out to be perfect in every aspect of his game, he wasn't, he had limitations like every player in the NFL does. He is my favorite player and THE reason I became a Niner fan, but still I can recognize that he wasn't flawless, he just had the right coach to put him in a position to succeed, not to mention he always had a supporting cast that is often overlooked by guys who weren't around when he was actually playing.
