One player (Joe) played with more talent and we are comparing Bill Walsh and his amazing coaching tree of assistants & coordinators to George Seifert & Mariucci staffs?
Yes, Joe is the #1 QB of all time but the gap is nowhere near as large between him and Steve as some old timers like to make it seem. The chatter about Joe being able to beat the Packers in the mid-late 90's is hilarious. Joe Montana probably had the most talented team on the field every single playoff game of his career folks. Joe is not Michael Jordan, and IMO Jerry Rice is the greatest American Football player of All Time.
