No need. I have always thought he was underrated. He had Montana accuracy with better physical tools.

Ahh these stats are so cherry picked.
BUT I agree Steve Young deserves more love and he's definitely in my top ten quarterback list. Even close to no. 5 spot.

Me and my buddy were having a discussion the other day about the top QBs. I think if I have a draft pick, my big board would be MAnning, Montana, Brady in some order but after those 3, my next group includes Young, and I'm not sure he isn't the top pick of that group.

Steve Young is definitely one of the best defenders, nobody seems to argue here.
