Example text

The Early 49ers Years The Cowboys were also powerful opponents. Dallas was a perennial postseason powerhouse and had made it to five Super Bowls. The 49ers, on the other hand, had played for 36 seasons without winning a single conference or league title. San Francisco also had a history of losing games to the Cowboys. Furthermore, San Francisco’s running game was unimpressive, and its defense was talented but inconsistent. Dallas, meanwhile, boasted such outstanding players as running back Tony Dorsett and middle linebacker/defensive tackle Randy White (both of whom, incidentally, came from the same part of Pennsylvania as Montana).

That change in direction was about to start. 51 4 The Early 49ers Years W hen the San Francisco 49ers signed Joe Montana in 1979, the team was in terrible shape. It had struggled for most of the ’70s; the low point came in 1978, when the team had a bitterly disappointing 2–14 record for the season. This dismal figure reflected the 49ers’ dubious distinction of being the lowestscoring organization in pro football that year. 7 points per game. The 49ers’ reputation was so poor that a number of Montana’s friends were shocked that he could be enthusiastic about heading to the team.

Joe completed 12 passes in 22 attempts, for 223 yards and four touchdowns. Three of the touchdowns went to Timko, the tight end. Zimmerman, the Sports Illustrated writer, described watching a videotape of Joe’s first game as a high school starter, against Monessen, and seeing the confident moves that the quarterback would repeat as a pro: The first pass Montana threw against Monessen was on a scramble to his right; he pulled up and hit [Mike] Brantley, crossing underneath. The second was a sideline completion to Timko, neatly plunked between two defenders.
