Montana was great in KC; as for Favre in NYC, we shall see.

Leave it to a blogger to set the record straight. Many in the media have been comparing Brett Favre's arrival in New York to Joe Montana in Kansas City. Many have said Montana saw his career end on a down note with the Chiefs. But one blogger, a Kansas City Chiefs fan, sets the record straight. Midwesterner in NYC writes:
    In early 1994 the Kansas City Chiefs played the Buffalo Bills in the AFC Championship Game. This marks the only time, in the entire history of the AFC Championship Game (that started during the 1970-1971 season), that the Kansas City Chiefs were involved in this game. Would you like to take a guess who the quarterback was during that game? Joe Montana. ... Keep in mind, he wasn't throwing to Jerry Rice any longer, he was throwing to guys named Willie Davis and J.J. Birden. Yeah, Montana was quite the disgrace.
Midwesterner in NYC even has a YouTube video of the Chiefs' Monday Night Football game against the Denver Broncos. In it Montana stages one of his famous comebacks. For the record, though, Favre will not reach the AFC Championship Game.
