Montana broke the NFL record for passing touchdowns and yards for a 10-year span during his reign as the NFL's top quarterback in the 1980s—but all of that would not have been possible without the incredible talent surrounding him.
The first elite teammate of Joe Montana that immediately comes to mind is the greatest wide receiver in NFL history, Jerry Rice. The former Mississippi Valley State wideout caught 55 touchdown passes from Montana in their five seasons together.
As one of the most dominant units in all of sports history, the San Francisco 49ers of the 1980s took down top quarterbacks Dan Marino, Boomer Esiason, Ken Anderson and John Elway in their four Super Bowl wins.
The San Francisco 49ers are one of the most storied franchises in all of sports, thanks in large part to Joe Montana leading the "Team of the Decade" to four Super Bowl Championships.
