This one from the Kansas City Chiefs quarterback was intended for Willie Davis and was knocked down by Troy Vincent, of the Dolphins, with 21 seconds left in yesterday's 27-17 play-off loss to Miami and Dan Marino, whom he last played against (and beat) a decade ago in the Super Bowl.
Was it Montana's last pass? "I haven't thought about it. I didn't think I'd have to think about it," he said. "To ask me that now is like asking a fighter after he's lost a championship bout if he'll fight again."
For much of the game, the 38-year-old looked very much like a 28-year-old. His statistics certainly were vintage Montana - 26 out of 37 throws, 314 yards and two touchdowns. But he also threw a critical interception in that same West end zone and the Chiefs became a team with nowhere to go but home.
The question for Montana: would home continue to be Kansas City or would he relinquish the last year of his contract and return to the West Coast, where he still keeps his house?Reuse content
