Source: Star Tribune — Some items of interest from Joe Montana’s appearance on The Dan Patrick Show today. In touching on a couple of subjects that are SURE to please plenty of football fans, Montana debunked the myth of “Rudy” while praising Brett Favre:
Montana thinks it’s great that Brett Favre returned. He said he always advises players to stay out there as long as they can. “If you’re physically able to go, play as long as you can. If you quit … you never have a chance to go back again,” Montana said.

Montana said it was hard for him to leave, because his mind was still ready to go, even though his body wasn’t. “Had I figured out Brett’s attack, I may still be playing,” Montana said.

Montana also cleared up a lot of rumors about Rudy and Notre Dame. Montana said no one was chanting Rudy during that final game of the season.

Montana said they did carry Rudy off, but it wasn’t the moment you saw in the film. “I won’t say it was a joke, but it was playing around,” Montana said.
