The conversation between who is the greatest quarterback of all-time is now over.
San Francisco 49ers legend Joe Montana — who has widely been considered the greatest QB of all-time — completely shut the conversation down after he admitted that Tom Brady was better.
Montana appeared on ESPN’s “First Take” on Wednesday and was asked if Brady had replaced him as the GOAT.
“I think Tom has taken his place on the top up there a long time ago. He’s had a tremendous career, he’s fun to watch. Everybody always contests over that, but I think if you look at what Tom has been able to accomplish in his time that he’s played, I think it puts him definitely up there at the top of the list.”
“There’s a lot of great guys, as I said, before me, you go back to Otto Graham, who won 10 or 11 championships. It’s hard to compare them, but if you’re looking at it, yeah, definitely Tom at that point.”
Brady, who grew up idolizing the San Francisco 49ers legend, likely just passed out from hearing those words.
Montana, who led the San Francisco 49ers to four Super Bowl championships in the ‘80s, played 16 years in the NFL.
Montana was a perfect 4-0 in Super Bowls, while Brady has just played in his 10th Super Bowl and won his seventh.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
