Analysis: Don’t Compare Brady & Montana Just Yet

SAN FRANCISCO (CBS Sports) — When he was a kid growing up south of San Francisco, Tom Brady wanted to be Joe Montana. Now, two decades later, he might get his wish.

By beating the New York Giants, Brady would tie Montana with four Super Bowl victories. More than that, he would start squeezing Montana on the Greatest Ever list. Montana is considered among the best three quarterbacks ever, usually behind Johnny Unitas and Otto Graham, and has been no worse than No. 3 for years.

Then Tom Brady came along.

“I’ve never really considered anyone at the same level as Joe,” said former San Francisco wide receiver Dwight Clark, “but if there’s anyone who’s remotely close, I guess it’s Brady.”
