Ranking of the San Francisco 49ers’ top quarterbacks in their primes since 1980

No professional athlete in American pro sports has more pressure on him than the quarterback of the 49ers.

He must be elite, preferably one of the greatest of all time. If not, he’ll be replaced because 49ers fans want the next Joe Montana. You’ll settle for the next Steve Young. Anything else is unacceptable.

Now it’s Trey Lance’s turn to live up to those outrageous expectations. So let’s rank the best quarterbacks in the 49ers since 1980 and see where Lance could fit in.

1.Joe Montana.

Prime: 1981-1990.

The greatest quarterback of his time and in 49ers history. Montana’s heyday was perhaps the best of any quarterback of all time.
