One of the six NFL Hall of Fame quarterbacks from Western Pennsylvania that Wayne Stewart writes about in his new book, America’s Cradle of Quarterbacks: Western Pennsylvania’s Football Factory from Johnny Unitas to Joe Montana has been named the best NFL quarterback of all time by none other than his rival.
Yahoo reports that Troy Aikman regards his former rival as the best to ever play the game in an interview on the Dan Patrick Show.
“Joe Montana,” said Aikman. “And I don’t care if we’re comparing him against anyone from today’s game or not, or what his numbers may or may not look like. I saw him do it on the biggest stage, in the biggest moments and bring his team back and do the things that I think are required of the position.”
Aikman isn’t the only one to think Montana was the best.
