But, for real. Joe was good in his era and Brady is good in his. The era's are different, the players nowadays are smarter, bigger and faster. But, then again in Montana's era they hit harder and were able to smash the quarterback. To survive and play in any of the eras...including the old fart era...still took/takes skill. Comparing era's and players is definitely a pointless pursuit. That is my middle of the road view.
