http://www.usatoday.com/sports/football/nfl/2007-top-25-series.htm Montana produced some of the most memorable plays in NFL playoff history. In the 1981 NFC title game, he lifted the 49ers to their first Super Bowl by leading a legendary 89-yard, fourth-quarter drive that ended in a 6-yard high, floating touchdown pass to Dwight Clark a play that became known simply as "The Catch." It gave San Francisco a 28-27 defeat of Dallas. Seven years later, Montana engineered a 92-yard drive against the Bengals in Super Bowl XXIII that ended with his 10-yard strike to John Taylor in the end zone with 34 seconds left that beat Cincinnati 20-16. ************************* "The Catch" may be the most overrated football play I've ever seen, and IMO no way Montana was better than Elway, who not only had a better arm and was a better runner than Montana, but was also just as great in the clutch. Montana's biggest asset was playing in the very high profile SF Bay Area vs the relative hinterlands of the rocky mountain front range where Elway spent his whole career.
