Actually lots of people were disgruntled with him as fans. But after 95' things changed a bit. I was very young and just missed out on the Montana era, Always been a huge Young fan. I think I truly started watching in the 90 season, I think Jerry Rice held out through training camp that year. Very peculiar, I was 6 going on 7 and nobody in my family watched football, they still really dont but I watched every Sunday and often times watch ESPN hoping for new highlights when the Niners game weren't aired in Hawaii.
So you got there just as they were transitioning. howd you get into football with such little influence? Or were the niners that big in hawaii?
I understand the love for Joe though. Ive seen enough games of his to just be wowed. Lionel Messi reminds me of Montana. Guy who doesnt look like much,quiet but when he touches the ball its just magic.
But Young, man, that guy was made to be an NFL QB. I can see why we were so proud.
