Widely considered one of the best quarterbacks to play the game, Joe Montana offered insight on Thursday as to what makes the Seahawks such a good team.
“I think they have the capability to,” Montana said. “When you look at the way the team is put together, they’re young, they’re aggressive, [and] their coach is very aggressive and upbeat.”
Montana was part of a dynasty of his own, with the San Francisco 49ers more than two decades ago.
He led the 49ers to four Super Bowl titles in the 1980s, including back-to-back Lombardi Trophies in 1989 and 1990.
Montana said one of the big reasons for the Seahawks success is the attitude of the team and the enjoyable atmosphere.
“Anytime you can make going to work fun…it makes going to that facility every day a joy,” Montana said, “and when you’re having fun at what you’re doing, you’re always a lot better at it.”
Members of the Seahawks have recently been in headlines for feeling the same way.
Seven teams have been able to win back-to-back Super Bowl titles, the most recent being the New England Patriots in 2004 and 2005.
The Seahawks are hoping to be team number eight on Feb. 1 in Glendale, Ariz.
