Joe Montana Doesn’t Think Tom Brady Is The GOAT QB

Most people believe Tom Brady is the greatest QB to ever play in the NFL but apparently NFL legend Joe Montana disagrees.

Montana spoke with TMZ and named Dan Marino is his GOAT QB because Marino would probably dominate in today’s game.


“Put Marino into today’s game where he gets free release…and his receivers, holy cow, weren’t very big,” Montana said. “Now these guys are 6’4,” 6’5.” I think [Marino] is probably one of the most unsung heroes of the game. People don’t talk enough about him or realize the numbers that he put up during the times that he put them up.”

Montana went on to list Marino’s best attributes.

“He had a quick release. I had to step into a lot of things to get enough [force] on the ball. He had the perfect torque of his upper body and strength to deliver the ball quickly at a fast release with accuracy.”‘

Of course some people are going to see issues with Montana not naming Brady as the GOAT but most people should respect his personal opinion on the matter.
