If this were about who was the best 49er QB of all time; then it would have to be Montana in first place followed by a very close match between Young and Tittle. None of the others on this list are even close to those two.

Agree with the qb comments, but I don't believe a better team has ever been assembled than the late 80's 49ers.

Agree with that.
i believe the 89 niners were one of top three teams in the history of the nfl. sorry kids but the 94 free agent niner super bowl team is third on the list of great niner teams behind the 89 and 85 ones who destroyed denver and miami in super bowls

and 94 was a slouch? being that the teams never played eachother i dont think its a comparison but the 94 team was an amazing team and what they did to san diego was pretty awesome too. that being said i picked steve because he was so damn fun watch. he would take off running without his helmet, he had lazer like accuracy and the rivalry with the cowboys and packers was the highest during the 90s to me anyway. it was my childhood and ive seen a bunch of montana games as well but steve is and always will be my favorite 49er

Let's not forget the 1984 49ers were the FIRST team to win 18 games in a season and 15 games in the regular season. Think about that for a second. The only team the 49ers lost to that year was the Steelers -


Schedule Week Date Opponent Result Attendance
1 September 2, 1984 at Detroit Lions W 30-27 56,782
2 September 10, 1984 (Mon) Washington Redskins W 37-31 59,707
3 September 16, 1984 New Orleans Saints W 30-20 57,611

5 September 30, 1984 Atlanta Falcons W 14-5 57,990
6 October 8, 1984 (Mon) at New York Giants W 31-10 76,112
7 October 14, 1984 Pittsburgh Steelers L 17-20 59,110

12 November 18, 1984 Tampa Bay Buccaneers W 24-17 57,704
13 November 25, 1984 at New Orleans Saints W 35-3 65,177
14 December 2, 1984 at Atlanta Falcons W 35-17 29,644
15 December 8, 1984 (Sat) Minnesota Vikings W 51-7 56,670
16 December 14, 1984 (Fri) Los Angeles Rams W 19-16 59,743
Playoffs
17 December 29, 1984 (Sat) New York Giants W 21-10 60,303
18 January 6, 1985 Chicago Bears W 23-0 61,040
19 January 20, 1985 Miami Dolphins W 38-16 84,059

5 Games decided by fewer than 7 points. 8 wins by more than 20 points. That 1984 team DOMINATED the league that year, pure and simple.

I know this thread is about QB's, but I felt like I had to add to the CC's thoughts about the 1984 team.

the 84/85 team did not need free agents to dominate, the 89 team did make use of free agents but unlike the 94 team they were not dependent on them. i never said he 94 team was a slouch. why is it when you disagree with someone here they really misrepresent what you said. i just said they were the third best team in the history of the franchise and i hardly think that qualifies as a slap in the face of that team. the 84 85 team and the 89 team would have beat the 94 team hands down. joe montana just happened to be the qb of those teams and i believe he was head and shoulders above steve young

i said 85 team but meant to say he 84 team. you and i are on the same page in regards to that team that was so over looked in the super bowl . remember the experts saying marino would carve us up. we turned him and them into a one dimensional team once we figured out the no huddle they were using in the first half. what a great team. they did not need jerry rice to be great on that team as long as they had freddie s, dwight c and of course roger craig who was at the top of his game then
people are picking guys who never won a Superbowl....seriously?

i guess its all in the eyes of the beholder. for example my favorite niner running back was vic washington who never did anything more than rush for 811 yards for us but i loved him when i was a kid. same for gene washington. i love jerry rice but gene washington is my fav wide out even though he never won a super bowl !

He was the starter, and John Frank was the #2.

Edit: I was so happy to see Russ get a ring. He suffered in NE for sooooo long.

I can attribute the vote to Montana being kind of a dick and Steve being a likeable ESPN figure.
