    The league is different, but I thought I would start this conversation.

    Tough call, but I have to say no.

    Super Joe didn't have a running game and won a SB, and was the best clutch QB i ever saw.

    Yeah, but Joe Montana had better recievers than Brady has had. Brady has done more with less. I would call this one a wash.

    Yeah he never did really have a running game at one time there in san fran so gotta go with superJoe.Plus Joe Cool came to kansas city and in his FIRST year without knowing or working previously with ANYBODY on that team,he STILL took the Chiefs to their first AFC title game in a quarter of a century.25 years and they havent won a playoff game there in Kc since then.He was at the twilight of his career when he did that and you got to remember,he also had recievers he had to throw to that dropped the ball at the slightest of impact.Joe was just amazing at being super clutch.I'll never forget that pittsburgh steelers game at arrowhead stadium.4th and 5 with under a minute to play.If Montana doesnt make that clutch throw then right then and there,they dont tie the game to send it to overtime and then eventually win it so that the chiefs go to their first AFC title game in 25 years.

    That's a good question.

    As of right now, the answer is no, but Brady's career isn't over yet.

    To me, its not so much that the game has changed because it really hasn't all that much since Montana played. What has definitely changed is the structure of the league and the salary cap on all teams. Montana did not have a salary cap to deal with so the 49ers used to stack their teams. On the other hand, Montana never lost a SB let alone being a heavy favorite, and completely destroyed teams such as the Dolphins and the Broncos. The Pats have lost the SB and have won 2 of 3 on FGs at the end of the game.

    I also would say no right now. But Brady does have more time. If he continues his play consistently, then I say he will be better.

    I would have to agree but he also had Jerry Rice to throw to. I think Rice and Montana made each other look good. Rice wouldn't have the number either if it wasn't for Montana, prime example Steve Largent. Just imagine the numbers he could have put up if he had someone like Montana throwing to him.
