Joe Montana, Steve Young
Ah, yes. The easiest slide for last. And if you needed any help guessing.
There isn’t much that needs to be said about Hall of Fame quarterbacks Joe Montana and Steve Young. Perhaps one can offer the debate whether or not Montana remains the GOAT over New England Patriots QB Tom Brady.
But if you needed any clarification, Montana never tossed an interception during his four Super Bowls. And his passer rating during those games is a net 127.8. In comparison, Brady has five Super Bowl picks and a passer rating of 98.0 during his eight championship appearances.
That’s elite. But not Montana elite.
OK, so Brady has the better playoff and regular-season records overall. That’s fine. They’re both at the top of the NFL world to this day. But this is a Niners site after all.
Young, however, might be able to sit back and laugh while looking at his NFL-record six touchdown passes in a single Super Bowl.
Either way, 49ers fans have been graced with some of the best quarterbacking the NFL has ever seen. And you would be hard pressed to come up with an all-time quarterback tandem consisting of anyone better than these two.
