49ers could have the best quarterback since Young, Montana

But at what price? The 49ers know they are the best option for Peyton Manning. He’s 36 years old looking for the last few good years in the twilight of a great and successful NFL career.

With successful veteran Randy Moss new into the mix, and a veteran quarterback, both looking at first round Hall of Fame inductions, the San Francisco 49ers have a chance to build a team that can win it’s first Super Bowl since the days of Steve Young and Joe Montana.

Sure, SF lost to the (eventual Super Bowl winning) New York Giants with only 1 pass for 3 yards to a receiver.
