What if Steve young was traded to KC instead of Montana

my big WHAT IF question is ....what if we re-signed Deion Sanders, Eric Davis and Ricky Watters after 1994 , and WHAT IF "Bar None" never got hurt???????????

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.

Steve Bono actually signed with KC the same offseason (or was it the year before? )Joe was traded there. IIRC, Bono signed as a FA, then like a month later the 49ers traded Joe to KC. That had to suck deadcoonass.

Joe was a better QB than Steve 2 or so years after he was traded to KC. If you all don't remember, the key to beating the Steve Young 49ers was to stop Ricky Watters and it was not to stop Steve Young.

I have a feeling that would not have been the case with Joe Montana.

Montana: Roughly 60% completion percentage, approx. 5,400 passing yards, 29 TDs vs 16 INTs

Young: Roughly 69% CP, close to 8,000 passing yards, 64TDs vs 26 INTs

The numbers don't support that theory. Not even close.

Because the Cheifs had sooo much more offensive talent than the 49ers, right?

You keep forgetting the eye test and the ability Montana had to make players around him better.
