Pro Football Hall of Famer Joe Montana opened up about his time with the Kansas City Chiefs, and one lone regret about the end of his career.
When you’re Joe Montana, there’s not much to regret about your football career.
Montana won four Super Bowls with the San Francisco 49ers, and eventually ended his career with the Kansas City Chiefs and Marty Schottenheimer. Montana retired after the 1994 season and still had a few years left on his contract.

Joe Montana opens up about time with Chiefs
Joe Montana spoke fondly of his time with the Kansas City Chiefs, and only had one regret — not winning a Super Bowl prior to calling it quits in 1994. Montana felt those teams were talented enough to take home his fifth Lombardi trophy.
“The whole experience was just a blast, from when we moved in and then people around us,” Montana said. “Went to a great organization. Great team. And we should’ve won a Super Bowl. I apologize…but when we were in Buffalo that year, I couldn’t throw the ball from here to that camera…that was a Super Bowl team, we should have won.”
The former league MVP also revealed a funny run-in with Schottenheimer.
“I’m not sure he was ready for me. We were in our first meeting…and all of a sudden there was this really bad smell in the locker room, and Paul Hackett (former 49ers teammate) knew right away that I threw a stink bomb in the team meeting,” Montana said. “Marty ran out of there cussing and swearing at me.”
Despite an unpopular first meeting, the two NFL legends remained good friends long after his playing career.
