Long before this Manning mess, we had the Joe Montana mess. Before Irsay and his precious Horseshoe, we had San Francisco 49ers owner Eddie DeBartolo, team president Carmen Policy and a Niners franchise that had won four Super Bowls with [Joe] Montana as its quarterback.
Wow. I was too young to totally remember the circumstances that Montana left the Niners but I knew it wasn’t under the best terms. It’s very interesting how many similarities Wojciechowski discusses.
