Default Montana

How is Montana ranked one of the greatest when he had as much or more talent around him as Bradshaw. Montana was a system qb if there ever was one. I'm not saying bradshaw was the best. I reserve that for Elway. But i believe Montana is as overrated as they come.

Montana was pure clutch. Sure he had Rice and a cast of others not to mention the best coach since Noll. Montana never lost a SB either. Elway is not in the same league as Brad or Montana.

Elway took teams to the SB on his back...Montana could never do this.

he had a great RB, tight end, and defense behind him, but they werent elite. Of course he had Rice, but you gotta give the man his credit. He's one of the most prolific playoff/superbowl quarterbacks of all time. And yes, he was very clutch. And unlike Bradshaw, he was the focal point of the team. Gotta give credit when it is due.

There are several Montana McFarlanes. But not a Brad.

Seriously, what are those people thinking about?

Every great quarterback had great talent around him. Marino even had great offensive players around him, he was just never blessed with a run game or defense to help him win games.

montana had a qb rating of 92.3 and 4 rings bradshsaw had a qb rating of 70.9 and 4 rings.

Of course everyone will say Montana was better and is imo. Our defense won the games back then although terry made the plays in the post season. Montana was the shit in the playoffs. He had Jerry Rice we had Jack Lambert...

elway had a qb rating of 79.9. he can't come into the discussion i don't care if he had 2 rings he only got good in his last five years and was average at best in his first 10.

It's like if Vick one a ring or two i could go around saying he is the best ever...

For me Peyton Manning will go down as best ever he near the end of his career and he is 95.2 if the Colts did not have him, they would be ****ed

Pretty obvious you never saw either play. Most of Montana's passes never went more than 5 yards in the air before they were caught. Can you say dink-n-dunk? Bradshaw liked to throw much lower percentage deep passes and did so with regularity as he called his own plays. Bradshaw also played more than half his career in a league where DBs were allowed to actually play defense and pretty much mugged WRs. Also, the Steelers of the '70s played against stiffer competition in the SB than the 49ers did in the '80s. The only thing that prevented the Cowboys of the '70s from being the team of the decade were the Steelers, and the Steelers beat them in the SB twice. They also beat a Vikings team that went to the big dance 4 times in the '70s. Who did the Niners of the '80s beat? The Bungles twice and two basically one-man teams in the Marino-led Dolphins and the Elway-led Broncos. QB ratings don't tell the whole story.
