    If Marty Schottenheimer wasn't too conservative and let Montana call the plays the Kansas City Chiefs could have won a second Super Bowl

    Man, there was a lot going on that year. The 75th anniversary of the NFL, first season for FOX broadcasting games, first year (for the NFL) of the two point conversion, first year of the NFL Sunday Ticket, those way, way, way throwback uniforms, and then, this game. Later in that year Montana and Elway played a Monday night game for the ages. Good memories

    Marshall was an asshole for that hit, he lowers his helmet at the last second. Cheap shot.

    It didn’t hurt that young was pretty much constantly under pressure in their matchup. Both great quarterbacks, but I’d take Montana

    I so remember that game as a kid. I even remember the Steve Young bootleg @7:54 and prior to that call Marty Shottenheimer is screaming at Derrick Thomas signaling an eight on his chest, bootleg motion with his hands. He called it in advance and the D stuffed it. Very fun.

    Young lost alot of big games that were his fault played badly vs Cowboys and Packers that Terrell Owens play actually should never happened Rice had clearly fumbled. Montana far better id put Farve ahead of Young heck Kurt Warner as well 😊

      every team in the nfl every year since it's inception would take him as a backup to joe montana the only exception would be the patriots from the last 20 years. but bill would trade all of his picks for a young steve young right now if he had the option.

  • Michael Armenta Sr.

    Uh, Steve Young is a legend only in 49er fans minds, he had a few good years. Joe Cool Montana was the best I ever watched. As a Rams fan, I hated him, but respected him.

    If you'd take Brady over Montana with age being a non factor, you're fucking retarded. Bottom line. Joe Montana was amazing. Brady is a good QB no doubt. But between the 2, it's not even close.

    In 94 I was 16. My father and I where Miami dolphins fans. Always have been always will be. But even if you was not a fan of these teams. Everyone was watching this one. And to be honest it did not disappoint. Also with the 49ers organization to have a great deal from the cards. But traded Montana to where he wanted to go says volumes about how much they did not want to do this but had no choice. They loved joe. But had to make a decision on the QB spot. Not even a 49ers fan but I loved watching joe play.

    As a niner fan then and now both qb's are legends but 16 is legendary. Montana, Lott, 🍚80, Steve, Clark mt. Rushmore R.I.P D.THOMAS football was football back then

    Steve Young is like a race car driver who is great at driving ferrari and beating Toyota corolla. Putting him in top 25 is an insult to other great QB.

      Joe Montana overrated system QB they got rid of him and Steve Young won superbowl title
      Steve Young higher completion% and higher passer rating and more rushing yards and rushing touchdowns then Joe Montana
      Steve Young better overall QB
      Goat 🐐Brady > Joe Monatana

    And wait, Young did NOT get the last laugh. Montana won 4 Superbowls and was the MVP for three of them (they gave the wrong one to Rice) and is in the top 2 of the greatest QBs OF ALL-TIME. While Steve Young is one of the one of the best LEFTY QBs.

    6:18 We've seen THAT play before from Montana, huh?

    Montana will always be the best! Unlike that cheater Tom Brady & the New England Patriots. And this is a stupid video, comparing an old Montana vs a young Steve Young. Check out Montana in his prime! And I will never forgive the 49ers for what they did to Montana! Montana was the ultimate competitor. I use to be the biggest 49ers fan, now till this day I always want them to lose every game, including the preseason games. Montana was my idle, I still have 63 football cards of Montana. After Montana retired, I even stopped watching NFL & now only watch College football. #HookEm

    Steve Young was a mediocre back-up quarterback. He was more like a Tom Matte type of "quarterback". Not much of a passer, but a decent runner. like high school quarterback.

    This game wasn't won because of was won by the Chief pass rush and their overwhelming crowd noise....Arrowhead in the 90's was a HARDCORE environment, probably one of the 3 or 4 most challenging venues in the NFL at that time.

  • Gregory Witt

    If I remember correctly Young was sacked 5 times in this game. Shows why Montana was Joe Cool. And Young was the pouting pansy he still is today

    Steve Young couldn't pop a pimple off Joe Montana's won 4 Super Bowls + many playoff appearances and MADE San Francisco a team to respect and fear. The other inherited a great team... The year Steve won a super bowl, they bought Charles Haley and Deon Sanders. I'm not saying Steve Young stinks, but unlike Joe Montana who started with SF when they were nothing, Steve couldn't do squat with Tampa Bay - the team he started with... just my .02 cents on the subject

    It’s funny because when the chiefs and 49ers played in 2014 it was the same thing, former 49er qb Alex smith played against the guy who took his job Colin kaepernick

  • Scott Broyles

    SF was missing 3 starting offensive linemen in the KC game & Young was running for his life. The SF oline was crippled the first 7 weeks in 1994 at one point missing 4 starters & multiple backups. They lost 40-8 vs an average Eagles team 2 weeks after KC. But once the line got healthy in week 9 they blew out every team they played except Dallas.

      @John Re It isn't too late. Women are DESTROYING the NFL. WE must band together as REAL MEN and make a STAND. As the GREAT Captain Jean-Luc Picard said in "Star Trek First Contact: " The line MUST be drawn HERE. NO FURTHER."
