Montana’s Project Intrigues Santa Clara

Posted by Taylor Price on July 13, 2011 – 2:22 PM

A proposed luxury hotel project to be built across the street from the 49ers future new stadium in Santa Clara received a boost of attention Tuesday night when the City Council agreed to negotiate a lease with a business group led by 49ers Hall of Fame quarterback Joe Montana.

The news was reported early Wednesday morning by CBS 5’s Website. According to the report, Montana’s group will have exclusive negotiations with the city of Santa Clara after the City Council voted 5-1 in favor of Montana’s group.

Along with former team owner Eddie DeBartolo, Montana’s group envisions a luxury hotel, restaurant and sports bar complex to be built on seven acres of land north of Tasman avenue, across the street from the future home of the 49ers.

Montana’s group now has 18 months to negotiate a lease with a city.

    They don’t have to “trade” Alex, he’s not under contract.

    Us 49er fans have been spoiled by having the luxury of watching the two best quarterbacks who ever played the game for 20 years. 1979 to 2000 it was Montana and Young. How many of you who criticize Alex have been around long enough to remember John Brodie? Like Alex he to was booed for the first 7 years of his career. He took over from Hall of Fame QB YA Tittle. Then in 1965 Brodie all of a sudden became the QB that they wanted him to be when they drafted him. Took another 5 years to get to the playoffs. Not saying its going to Alex that long. They dump him ow and he will just go to another team become a great QB and lead that team to the playoffs. Alex finally has a coach who knows how to develop a QB. Give him one more chance. If Harbaugh cant get it done with Alex no one can.

    If ? lockout ends soon, niners will have a full training camp and will able to play all 4 preseason games. IF that happens ? Colin Kaepernick will be the starter by week 8.

    Alex Smith will be just fine under Jim Harbough. Remember in his second season under Norve Turner, he won 7 games and the first 2 game of the next season before he was injured aganist Seattle. That is when things began to come apart for Smith. Playing injured with a porius O-Line was a recipe for desaster and the desaster occurred. Nolen then started Dilfer w/o knowinf that Hill was the better QB. This will be Smith’s first real offensive coach since his soph. yr. I for one, believe he will make allof you doubters true believers. “GO NINERS”

    If Harbaugh want’s to keep Alex, I trust him, he might see something most of us don’t, Alex has been on a make or break for the last 3 seasons! but man! It’s been tough for all Niners fans no doubt, but as a fan this will be the last chance for Alex. I say, give him a year contract and then…..

    Fan since 1971 and I have seen it all. Give the guy another chance. Think JH can pull the magic out of him. I know its there somewhere. Wait and see.

    Only time will tell with Smith he had the makings of a great QB coming out and Harbaugh will be the best judge of that put your faith in the system and it will finally begin to play out… and if nothing else fails we try Kaepernick

    I agree with most of you guys…….Alex is wearing thin with this old 49er fan. Perhaps Harbaugh, a former QB will be able to turn him around….Let’s hope so or turn things upside down and get going 49ers….

    Alex Smith has never been blessed with a good offensive line, quality coaching or a stable of quality WR’s. I believe he is much better then most think.

    I agree with jrparker. It not his fault the team does’nt have a deep threat receiver.. He dis’nt throw to many INT’S or turn the ball over to often. He had 7 different offensive cordinators in 7 yrs. Harbaugh is a great coach, and his coaching staff is 2nd to none.. Look what Smith did last year under Harbaugh without quality receivers, except Vernon Davis. Crabtree was avg, and is highly over-rated. If Delaney Walker is healthy, and Randy Moss pans out, maybe Manningham signs, could be very interesting.. Is it Smiths fault the receivers cant hang on to the ball? Did Smith fumble 2 kickoffs for 10 points against the Giants. Gimme a break. You need more than Vernon Davis to win in the playoffs, and thats why there focus is receivers right now. True he’s no Montanna or Young, but could they have been so good without Rice and John Taylor? There o-line is good now, best defence, coach,/executive of the year. Give it a chance, its only Harbaughs 2nd year, and he did’nt even have a real training camp, and he’s doing a great job with the amount of time he was given. Rome was’nt built in a day..
