For decades, Candlestick Park has felt as ancient as Jurassic Park. Now, with the San Francisco 49ers set to say goodbye to their slouching home, and move next season to a shiny new stadium half an hour down the peninsula, the memories are bubbling back. "It was a dump, but it was our dump," said Dwight Clark, a star receiver for the 49ers from 1979 to '87. "We had a lot of history there and a lot of success. It's sad to see it go, but that's progress. " It was Clark who made "The Catch," the most famous play in club history, reeling in a six-yard, last-minute touchdown pass from Joe Montana to beat Dallas in the 1981 playoffs and earn a trip to the Super Bowl.

John Elway has a message for Brett Favre: Just do it. "If he decides not to play now and doesn't come back, I think he'll question that for the rest of his life," the retired Denver Broncos star said. Joe Montana has a message for Favre too: Just do something. "If he's ready to play, then yeah, he should," Montana said. "But usually when you're waffling like that it makes it difficult on everybody. . . . If it was the first time he's done it, it would be different.

Redshirt freshman Max Wittek, who will start at quarterback for USC against top-ranked Notre Dame, is also part of a compelling Trojans-Fighting Irish subplot. Wittek's father, Kurt, is business partners in commercial real estate with Notre Dame legend Joe Montana. Kurt Wittek said he and Montana have not talked at length about Saturday's game at the Coliseum. “We haven't really said anything yet, specifically,” Kurt Wittek said. “We've just kind of mentioned, 'Well, here we go.'” Max Wittek is replacing senior Matt Barkley, who suffered a shoulder sprain in last week's 38-28 loss against UCLA.

The sons of a pair of football Hall of Famers did not get drafted this past weekend, but Nate Montana and Duron Carter still may be able to follow in their fathers' footsteps into the NFL. And with their dads' former teams, no less. Montana has accepted an invitation to take part in a three-day rookie minicamp with the San Francisco 49ers, the team his father, Joe Montana, led to four Super Bowl victories. Nate Montana, whose agent says his client turned down invites from three other teams for the opportunity, participated in the 49ers' local pro day earlier this month.

Joe Flacco is quickly emerging as a Baltimore football legend. In fact, he's about to become the greatest quarterback in the city's history. Flacco has led the Ravens to the playoffs in all five of his NFL seasons. He threw 11 touchdown passes and no interceptions -- tying Joe Montana for most postseason touchdowns without a pick -- in helping the team claim its second Lombardi Trophy earlier this year. And he earned the Super Bowl MVP award in the process. But none of that really has anything to do with the fact that Flacco will become Baltimore's most loved player ever this summer ... thanks to the magic of the movies.

There's only one question left to ask about Joe Montana, as he goes on stringing these wondrous performances together. If the San Francisco 49ers continue along their current path to a fourth Super Bowl championship in nine years, will Montana have to be remembered as the greatest quarterback of all time? Once again, on Monday night against the New York Giants, Montana was magnificent. He completed 27 of 33 passes for 292 yards in the 49ers' stubborn 34-24 victory at Candlestick Park.

It's reached the point that every time you think Joe Montana can do no more, he does it. Take last week. He threw for 476 yards and six touchdowns against Atlanta and then yawned about it. "There were times I was throwing well, but there were other times I didn't hit people I should have," he says, noting that he missed two receivers open for touchdowns and threw two interceptions. Well, nobody's perfect. It's just that Montana seems to be.
