Bingo. Anyone who was there remembers throws with seconds left during the season to win games where it was like magic. It was as if Joe was bored until there was something on the line sometimes. Way down field back shoulder along the sidelines with the receiver draped and in a way that it just got there right as the receiver turned his head. Receivers used to talk about it publically, John Madden would laugh and say "only Joe Montana completes that pass." If there was one second left on the clock and we had the ball EVERYONE knew this thing is not over.
During that epic battle Madden said something like "Joe Montana and Lawrence Taylor are the only players to ever play who can dominate a game by themselves."
When he hit that pass with just seconds left to Rice against the Giants in the playoffs after a brutal almost no scoring war with LT all over him all night and Rice went screaming down the sidelines to win it I will never forget my mother who was bed ridden with cancer bouncing out of her bed, cheese puffs flying, iced tea flying, screaming, hands up, throwing stuff. And she was a nurse lol!
It was the same thing on everyone's face in the room as the ball was almost there, that mouth wide open eyes popping out Oh My God here it comes moment. You could feel it happening before Rice even caught it.
Only Joe Montana any day and I don't care what the stats are.
