    Joe Montana wanted to be traded to Steelers, not Chiefs







    07:07 PM ET 12.11 | Joe Montana retired with the Kansas City Chiefs after becoming yet another legendary player to ride off into the sunset wearing a different uniform than the one he became famous in. But if there's one thing we love as sports fans, it's "what if" scenarios involving major transactions or events in sports history. What if the Blazers had drafted Michael Jordan, what if the Hornets had kept Kobe Bryant and not traded him, what if Barry Sanders had been drafted by another team? The latest, albeit not greatest but still interesting what if scenario involves Joe Montana and that infamous trade from the 49ers in 1993. How it happened was Montana was traded to the Kansas City Chiefs who eventually went to the AFC Championship game under his command. But in a recent interview on Arrowhead Addict (via the Dan Patrick Show), Montana is quoted as saying he wanted to play for the Steelers and not the Chiefs.

    Tom Brady badly wanted to be drafted by the 49ers. They even needed a QB, but Steve Mariucci chose Giovanni Carmazzi from Hofstra. Career NFL passing yards: 0
    The poster "pacertom" since this forum began (and before!). I changed my name here to "Slick Pinkham" in honor of the imaginary player That Bobby "Slick" Leonard picked late in the 1971 ABA draft (true story!)

    Of course he did, he grew up in Monongahela. Who wouldn't want to go back home and finish their career for a storied team that also played in both AFC championship games while he was in Kansas City - and with Neil Freakin' O'Donnell as the QB.

    Oh, what could have been...

    Why do the things that we treasure most, slip away in time
    Till to the music we grow deaf, to God's beauty blind
    Why do the things that connect us slowly pull us apart?
    Till we fall away in our own darkness, a stranger to our own hearts
    And life itself, rushing over me
    Life itself, the wind in black elms,
    Life itself in your heart and in your eyes, I can't make it without you
