About Joe Montana
Joe Montana was an American football player. He is widely considered one of the NFL’s greatest quarterbacks of all-time.
Joe played for Notre Dame and it is there that he earned the nickname “the comeback kid”. He had an ability to perform under pressure. He was used a lot in the 4th quarter when his team was behind. Joe was drafted in the 1979 NFL draft to the San Francisco 49ers. He remained with the 49ers until the tail end of his career when he was traded to the Kansas City Chiefs.
Joe's most memorable moment in the NFL is known as “The Catch”, a 49ers game winning pass in the 1981 NFC Championship game. Joe won 4 Super Bowls and was the MVP in 3 out of the 4.

Yeah, I think it motivates you as people start to count you out. It doesn't make you play any harder, because every time you go out on the field you give 110 percent, but it does give you more of an edge mentally, knowing that you were in the same situation, because in sports you always find yourself behind.Joe Montana
