Best of Rivals
Joe Montana, Steve Young, and the Inside Story Behind the NFL's Greatest Quarterback ControversyBook - 2012
In Best of Rivals, Adam Lazarus takes readers inside the huddle to deliver the real story behind the greatest quarterback controversy of all time: Joe Montana and Steve Young's battle both on and off the field for the right to lead the San Francisco 49ers. From 1987 to 1992, the two future Hall of Famers spurred each other on to remarkable heights, including three Super Bowl wins and four MVP awards, and elevated the game around them in the process. The two men couldn't have been more different in both personality and playing style, and their rivalry created as much hostility as it did greatness, forcing Montana to prove that he could still compete and Young that he could emerge from his predecessor's shadow. Featuring candid interviews with Montana, Young, Jerry Rice, George Seifert, and many others, Best of Rivals brings to life the story of two sports legends, the golden era of football their rivalry presided over, and the amazing legacy it created.
