Happy Birthday Joe. My dad and I had season tickets during the 80's and early 90's, I'm proud to say that I was a witness to some of the greatest moments in Niner history, and most of them came from #16!!! Thanks for the memories Joe! GO NINERS!!!

I like Steve Young too, but that just means you probably were too young to see Joe play. Most experts consider Joe to be the greatest QB ever; while Steve is great he was not Joe.
I prefer Alex to be honest...but happy birthday, I suppose
Happy Birthday Joe and thanks for the memories. My all time sporting hero. And guys...Dont mention Steve young on this thread, matter of fact, NEVER mention his name when you are talking about greatness regardless of the circumstances. We would have had another 2 rings if that little spoilt whining ****** just realized where his place was and that was No 2. And yeah I said it!! Steve young remembers me of agent Smith of the Matrix..."Me me me me me". "I share this with each and everyone of you guys"(SB29 Speech). No Steve...The team will share it with YOU!! Not the other way around. Now back to Joe...What a class human being. You where put here to inspire millions and become the greatest QB ever!! Thats what i call a sweet deal. But after all these years of NEVER blowing your own trumpet,ALWAYS staying out the limelight and constantly remaining HUMBLE, You were obviously the perfect candidate for the job. GO JOE!!!!

just wondering, does Joe really see this or read these messages? Most of us love him but from what i hear, he's very distant from the public?
Joe is a private person. He has spent time recently splitting between his ranch in the Calistoga area (which he recently sold) and also a condo in SF. He is occasionally seen in SF in public with his wife, usually in the Union Square area. He is polite when people approach him, but the nice thing about SF is most people realize that he values his privacy and they will basically leave him alone.
