David Carr doesn’t think Joe Montana is a top 10 QB in the Super Bowl era


Former Texans quarterback David Carr was spitting out Onion-esque hot takes on NFL Network Friday morning. The QB turned analyst said he believes that Joe Montana, widely considered to be a top two quarterback in NFL history, doesn’t even crack the top 10.

His argument is centered around the idea that Montana was a system quarterback in Bill Walsh’s innovative West Coast offense.

“Look, Bill Walsh is a genius and Joe Montana arrived a precisely the right time, just like the White Wizard Gandalf, he arrives precisely when he intends to,” Carr said referencing The Fellowship of the Ring. “Joe Montana showed up from Notre Dame, Bill Walsh is a genius, the defenses they were facing were not even close to being ready for this. This was a walk in the park. This was seven-on-seven for junior high kids.

“They had no idea what they were seeing from the shifts and the motions and the ball out on time. Steve Young is a far better quarterback.”

In addition to winning a National Championship during his time at Notre Dame, Montana won four Super Bowls with the 49ers, and was named as the game’s MVP in three of them. He’s an eight-time Pro Bowler, two-time league MVP, and was selected as the fourth greatest player in NFL history on NFL Network’s list of 100 greatest players.
