NFL Network's list of Joe Montana's greatest games.
They listed two of his ten greatest games as being in a Chiefs uniform, which was kind of cool, but it may not be the two you would expect.
First, his Monday night noogie of Elway didn't make their list. I was all like "What?" That's been discussed as perhaps the best Monday Night game ever, and one of the best game endings ever, but it didn't make the list.
The #9 greatest game was the 1993 playoff win over Houston. I didn't recall, but Houston had won 11 straight games coming into that week, and it wasn't just their offense. Buddy Ryan was the coach, and their defense was really strong. If you recall, we were behind and came back to win that game.
As another bit of trivia on that #9 game, they showed a closeup of Montana's throwing elbow. Holy cow. It had a really big and nasty surgery scar, and it was all swollen and gnarly like some sort of swamp tree. It looked like it would've been quite painful.
Another key missing game was his 1993 playoff win over the Steelers. The guy made a fourth down touchdown pass to win the game in the playoffs, and it doesn't make the list? Wow.
The #3 greatest game you might guess, though they put it on the list more for being meaningful than for being a great Montana game. It was the game against the 49ers where Steve Young came in and got beaten mercilessly by the Chiefs during a big victory.
Any thoughts? I'm still kind of shocked that the Monday Night game wasn't on there.
