  • the one.

  • The only Joe Montana is with me on the shell Pennzoil performance line.

  • What a delight this is.

  • Hello, Joe, How are you today?

  • I'm doing great greeny.

  • How much self?

  • I'm doing terrific, and it's wonderful to have you.

  • I'm thrilled that you could do this, and and there's so many different places that I could go with you.

  • But let let's start with the most obvious.

  • Which is that for much of my life, when people would ask the question, Who is the greatest quarterback of all time?

  • The answer, in many people's mind, would be Joe Montana.

  • So as you watch what Tom Brady is doing right now at the age of 43 in Tampa, playing at least the statistics say as well as he ever has.

  • What thoughts go through your mind?

  • Watching him?

  • I think it's great.

  • It's great for us old guys.

  • You know that the old guys, we're still hanging in there, but, you know, obviously times a great talent.

  • And you who who would have people ask me about what I thought was gonna happen when he got to Tampa?

  • And I said, Well, I don't expect to see anything any different.

  • I mean, look what they've done for him down there have given him some opportunity that he was looking for to have more saying what he's doing.

  • He added that knucklehead right there to his team, and he seems to be getting going right now on the the weapons around them were crazy.

  • And if you get if you get drunk and him going again when they're in the red zone, which they love to do, you know?

  • And you know, the first couple weeks people were questioning.

  • But hey, it's hard to get usedto, you know, new receivers, new quarterback, what is expected and until it starts happening on the field and you start seeing it and Tom has to teach it and what he's looking forward to those guys.

  • And so now look out.

  • You know, I agree.

  • I think there's they're headed to the Super Bowl.

  • Yeah, they look like the best team in the NFC right now, but I just wonder, as one who yourself, You did it at such a high level.

  • You did it for a long time.

  • What does it take to do this?

  • At the age of 43 are so few have ever played even close to that.

  • For him to be still doing it at that at that age.

  • How do you explain it?

  • Well, I think part of it is is what's how the game is being played today.

  • Obviously, there you can't get to the quarterback is often as you could and you can't hit him.

  • Um, and health is a big, big, big reason.

  • I mean, look at Drew Brees.

  • He's gaining on on that.

  • That number Aaron Rodgers is gaining on that number two, and I don't see them either one of those guys, either retiring also, and I think it's great that they can continue to play.

  • I wish I had didn't have the things that I had going on and was able to play longer than I had played.

  • But, hey, we all do.

  • We all have that feeling.

  • I think once you retire, you always looking back on what I do that when I stopped so really, I couldn't kept going for a little bit.

  • But I think a lot of it's easy.

  • He's been staying healthy.

  • He's got gets the ball out of his hand.

  • It doesn't make a lot of mistakes, and, you know, he's a great, great, great player.

  • And what do you know who?

  • I don't know what other people were thinking, but I didn't look at the numbers that offense put up last year and you talk about and I was just heard the end of that conversation and Jamie's, you know, you know, one of things.

  • Until Jerry Rice and John Taylor came along, Bill wasn't a deep ball thrower.

  • And because the one thing he said that the further you throw the ball down the field, a better chance of something bad to happen.

  • And you watch how long James held the ball for for so long and let it fly down the field.

  • You can only do that so many times.

  • Yeah, it's hard to cover guys for that length of time, but it's also hard to block for that long a period of time.

  • So, um you know, but they still put up ridiculous numbers.

  • And who would expect that not to be somewhat similar with Tom coming down there Green and the great Joe Montana with me?

  • And when you said that, I literally I just put away the notes I had of all the things that was going to talk to you about.

  • And I figured, Let's just talk about your career because that's gonna be more fun.

  • Uh, let's talk about that when you think back to that may be the most legendary stories about you come from Super Bowls.

  • What is your If someone were to ask you to remember one moment that stands out most for you from your four Super Bowl championships, which is the one that stands out the most.

  • We'll probably throwing two touchdown pass to John Taylor toe win that the Super Bowl there at the end.

  • And part of that was, you know, the game was up and down and it was closed.

  • But probably more important was the guy on the other sideline.

  • Sam Wyche was my first quarterback coach when I came and came to the 40 Niners.

  • So it was like beating your best friend on and there was nothing like it and, you know, till the day he passed away.

  • We remain great friends, and, um, you know, is a quarterback.

  • You can't ask for anything else Better than that.

  • The way to end the season is to throw touchdown, pass, the win, the Super Bowl.

  • They all have different meanings.

  • To be honest with you, they all were a little bit different.

  • And, um, I learned my lesson not to blow out teams anymore because they take you out of the game before you want.

  • That's got to be tough.

  • Joe Montana with on ESPN Radio The John Taylor touchdown, which beat Cincinnati in that incredibly close Super Bowl.

  • The legendary story from that is that when that drive began and you drove the whole team down the field, you pointed to John Candy in the stands.

  • The very, very funny, very famous actor of the day is no longer with us.

  • For those in our audience who may not know who John Candy was, you pointed a John Candy in the stands in order to calm down your teammates.

  • Is that an accurate story?

  • I've heard that story told a trillion times.

  • I've never had a chance to ask you.

  • Yeah, well, what's really wasn't meant as that I don't you know, I was just being myself.

  • I was the thing I always tried to do.

  • Whether you're winning, you're losing, um, early in the game late in the game.

  • I always tried to be me and Harris Barton, one of our office starting offensive tackles, was a people person.

  • And so during the week we're free for dinner.

  • And so Harris could not wait to come back the next day or in the meetings later that night to tell you what celebrity he saw while he was out.

  • So, you know, TV timeouts in the Super Bowl forever.

  • So I was just standing there, and between two shoulders had there was John Candy.

  • And I didn't remember Harris saying that he had seen John Candy.

  • So I walked over and said, Hey, H man, there's John Candy and he looked over and he looked at me and he stands.

  • He stands perfectly still like this the whole time, no matter what.

  • And he looked over, and then he started mumbling some stuff about the Super Bowl.

  • We're trying to win and you're looking at John Candy and, you know, hey was mumbling things, and I think he appreciates it more today than he did back then.

  • But yeah, I was just trying toe not so much calm down.

  • Just I was just being myself.

  • Thanks for watching ESPN on YouTube for live streaming sports and premium content.
