GREEN BAY, Wisc (WBAY) From Bart Starr to Brett Favre to Aaron Rodgers, the Green Bay Packers have had some great quarterbacks in the team's storied history.
But in NFL history, many argue Joe Montana is the best quarterback to ever play the game.
So when it came time to raise money for his male mentoring program he founded in 2003, Harry Sydney called on an old friend.
"Joe's sitting at the table with my boys and my grandson, how much better does that get man," says Sydney inside Gather on Broadway.
Joe Montana is in town for My Brother's Keeper, Inc. annual steak fry tonight in Howard, because of a brotherhood that developed when the two won three Super Bowls together in San Francisco.
"Once you have that bond, you have that bond and he decided to come in in lieu of the fact, you look in California, all those fires that are affecting him, but he came in to help us raise money to do the things we want to do and that's help boys and men become better," says Sydney.
It's a mission Montana says is unique, and one he's proud to support.
"Most of the time we're trying to take care of kids or young men after things go wrong instead of trying to catch them before, trying to solve how the world works and how things should look and the proper way and keeping them away from that end of the totem pole right, one of the first times I've seen someone actually try to get people prior to and help as early as the possibly can and I think it's great," says Montana.
And speaking of great, Montana admits he isn't the greatest spectator when it comes to football today, but he is a big fan of Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers.
"He's very smart, he's got a great arm and he's got a great attitude, he's very, very competitive and feisty and you've got to have some of that in you, he's got a lot of fight, as they say a lot of fight in the dog right," says Montana.
High praise from a legend in Titletown to support an old football buddy.
"When you have that kind of bond it does last forever, you'll see guys running and helping and doing everything for everybody and the guys who still live in the Bay Area we're together all the time, you miss those days, miss that part of it as much as the game itself," says Montana.
