    I know, I was thinking the same thing!

    The article said Montana actually wore this same jersey in the Miami SB as well as the Cinci SB.

    Second Best, Third Best, 1,000th Best. I don't care. That was my favorite SB of all time......I listened on the truck radio while I was working in the Orange Grove. 1989(?). I'll never forget it. I think about it all the time when I am in that same spot....And other times too.....Even until today! That's what football is all about to me....Good Memories.
    Montana may not be the GOAT but he was and still is my FAVORITE QB!

    He Was Good

    Jersey, schrmeszy....Don't mean a thing to me. A few years ago The sponsors of this forum, Collectors Universe (?) sent me an autographed Jerry Rice jersey. I don't know why. Anyway, my beautiful bank teller, Melanie is a NINER FANATIC!

    When The Niners were in the SB a few years ago she told me that she was having a SB Party...I was invited! On the Friday before the game I gave her that jersey..... She was so happy!.... I got a big hug and a kiss!💋. That was worth more than that jersey...OH BABY!..WAS IT EVER!.....
    Bad Part?
    She told The Lovely Mrs. Hydrant™ about it.

    Did I Ever Catch Hell!....
    What!..... You gave her that jersey?!?!?!🤦

    Oh Well it was worth it!..💋💋💋💋
    I didn't go to the party but Melanie told me she wore the jersey at her shin dig....
    It was worth it Boys!
    Melanie is one Hot Bank Chick! 😳💘

    Well, it is hard to beat a helmet catch and a dime to Plax to beat an undefeated team, I agree, but Montana’s drive was pretty great, too…

    honestly though, Montanas 91 yard drive with 3 minutes left was fantastic. I was a kid and glued to the TV. I had never seen anything like it.

    On a more serious note, what’s your #1? Brady’s comeback vs Atlanta ?

    100% and I can say that taking the homer part of it away, the second greatest was Frank Reich leading the Bills back from a 35-3 deficit against Houston in the AFC Championship game.

    I rank Montana's drive against Cincy 3rd

    Yep I definitely forgot about that, I remember the Denver vs Cleveland playoff games. They were classics.

    I don't know about that one.....But....The Lovely Mrs Hydrant™ and I were at a game in Denver long ago....The Broncos were way down in the 4th. Quarter.....They needed 2/3(?)) touchdowns to win the game.....And Elway did it!!!!!.....Best QB late game performance that I ever saw!....UNBELIEVABLE!!!.... Broncos Win!..
    Just as good or maybe better than the SB come back with Brady against the Falcons.....The SB isn't everything boys!...Good stuff happens all the time!!!!

    Best Part??
    After the game, We were driving to Nebraska....
    And the view of the Front Range was......Beautiful!...


    It was a Great Day!
