That is a lame what if. First, Montana was at the end of his career, I love the guy for what he did, but as G.Nielson said he was dealing with a fragile body, who is to say in the Championship games against the pokes that he wouldn't have gotten hurt? Plus as susweel stated, young didn't cause all the turnovers. Plus who is to say Montana wouldn't have given up turnovers himself? Montana was a great QB but, he wasn't perfect. In the end the niners would have had to have looked for a replacement earlier.
And please, don't say Bono would have been the one. I forgot when he left and when free agency began, but he would have been gone also. Bono was like Grbac a good QB, but would have suffered worst in the end.
In the end Defense was the missing piece, it was proven in the end with Dieon coming on board for one season.
