Joe Montana is a certified San Francisco 49ers great.
And now he has his say on a man who is trying to follow in his footsteps, Colin Kaepernick.
With Kaepernick preparing to for Sunday's NFC Championship game against the Seattle Seahawks, Montana spoke to USA Today on Thursday.
He started off praising the young quarterback:
"I like his mobility and that he's getting the ball downfield", said the man who won four Super Bowls.
But he had some words of warning for the man attempting to lead the 49ers to their second straight title game:
"Sometimes he needs to be more accurate in the pocket with pressure.
"The game is changing. Nobody wants to throw with pressure anymore. But the guys who can win in this league are the ones who can make throws from the pocket."
Ahead of the game in Seattle, which Montana believes his former team can win, the 57 year old did not refrain from criticising Kaepernick:
"He'll make some.
"But a lot of times guys are wide open, and he misses them."
So far in the post-season Kaepernick has thrown for six passing touchdowns, while being picked off on three occasions.
