Dude, seriously, your name is tiny hands big heart, you can pretend if you want but dont make me pull up you old posts. What I meant was its peculiar and in my opinion nearly blasphemous for a Die hard 49ers fan to argue that Tom brady is better than Joe Montana, especially on this forum. Only a mind who is delusional enough to still think that AS is the best qb on the team could come up with such nonsense. Take into account that 20 years ago flags werent thrown for breathing on qbs and DBs could dam near bump and run all the way down the field, and recievers didnt wear skirts and draw penalties for arm tackles over the middle. Not saying Brady is not good, Im a Michigan Alum so theres always a soft spot in my heart for him, but F**k no he's not better than Montana
lol, just because my nick is TinyHandsBigHeart doesn't mean I'm tied to Alex Smith forever. Alex Smith was a great QB for us, but it's clear that his era is coming to a close. I've accepted that.
As for the Montana/Brady debate, it's not really even a debate anymore outside of 49erland and I think even most 49er fans are willing to acknowledge that Brady is right up there with Montana now. Yea, it is easier to pass now, but it's not like guys like Marino didn't put up huge numbers back then. Brady has managed to win 3 superbowls and go to 5 while also putting up some of the best passing stats of his era. He's clearly the best.
I can understand why other 49er fans have a hard time acknowledging that. It wasn't easy for me either. It's hard to accept when your legendary players of old are passed by. However, it's something that is inevitable in sports and life. No matter how great someone is or how great a record is, someone better will always come along and every record will eventually be broken.
Ok so he has better stats than Montana or he has, i'll even buy that he was a better reg season qb, but how many superbowls has montana lost???? You can say he's up there with montana for sure, you can even mention his name in the same convo as best qb ever, but he is not better than Joe Montana, the giants proved that twice, everyone knows that if you get pressure in Brady's Face then he becomes average, as evidenced by our defense as well.
