we'll never know how good Montana would have been outside of Walsh's groundbreaking offense.
I'm just saying, casual fans immediately annoint guys like Montana and Brady the best QB's ever because they won so many titles.
Would Marino, Fouts, Manning and Elway have won less on those same teams
I don't think Bradshaw was a top 5 QB, but look what a great team around him provided.
We won't? He took the Chiefs pretty far after a busted elbow, with average talent, and old as rocks.
Montana was injured for part of the 1993 season, but still led the Chiefs in two come-from-behind wins in the 1993 playoffs and reached the AFC Championship Game, where Kansas City lost to the Buffalo Bills. Including their two playoff victories that year, the 1993 Chiefs won 13 games, tying the franchise record for wins in a season. Montana was also selected to his final Pro Bowl at the end of the 1993 season.
Montana returned healthy to the Chiefs in 1994, starting all but two games. His highlights included a classic duel with John Elway (which Montana won 31-28) on Monday Night Football, and a memorable game in week 2 when Montana played against his old team, the 49ers and Steve Young. In a much-anticipated match-up, Montana and the Chiefs prevailed and defeated the 49ers 24–17. Montana led his team to a final playoff appearance in 1994.
