    127.8 passer rating in the Super Bowl. Amazing!

    This isn't the greatest organization when evaluating QBs: Dawson, Unitas, Marino come to mind.
    those INT weren't on NOD, but people still blame him for throwing the ball where he was supposed to and those backup WR ran the wrong route... i imagine that's why NOD wanted to leave...

    i do wonder what it would have cost to get Joe Montana... imagine if NE had gone with Garrapolo - what would a Tom Brady trade have cost?

    Canít say we would win the SD game though because it seemed like our defenses always failed us in those championship games with blown coverages.

    Still furious at the SD tight end for drinking a coconut after running free for a wide open TD.
    You are correct, neither Montana nor Young ever threw an int. In a Super Bowl.

    I believe Kaep threw at least 1.

    Eh, I wonder how many other teams he reached out to and what was the asking price.
    Update:
    In the last decade, 25% of the league has won a super bowl(the Steelers aren't one of them) and now 50% have as many or more playoff wins as the Steelers.

    does that really matter? He mentioned us by name and basically admitted it was where he wanted to go before KC.
    Tomlinís coming back so what can you do?

    Montana ended up signing a 3 year contract for $10 million with the Chiefs.

    The numbers are so skewed these days I’m not even sure if that was considered a good deal back then.

    Aikmen signed a deal for 8 years/$50 mill in 1993.

    These old salaries crack me up. Looking back at these numbers and hearing “highest in NFL history” lol
    Tomlinís coming back so what can you do?

    hmmm 1993 huh?

    I WOULD LOVE TO KNOW THE DETAILS

    i guess this could further the argument against bill regarding his assessments of QBs.

    When Cowher took over he did broom an all and I don't think the team would have done any better with 37-38 year old QB who's arm went South. It would have been cool to have him, but he was a better fit playing Marty ball on a team older players that fit his style. Neil took his team to an AFC championship fame and a Super bowl, at this age Montana was done playing only 2 years with Kansas City so I think Bill made the right move.

    Plan to spend 75 million in cap space in 2022 ( most in the NFL ) and use the 2 comp picks ( 3rd and 5th ) for a killer 2022 draft. We will be back hopefully with better coaching.
