Hall of Fame quarterback Joe Montana was scheduled to propose a luxury hotel project in Santa Clara City on Tuesday night, but will not appear after a weekend car accident, according to the San Jose Mercury News.

Details of the automobile accident are scant. Montana’s lawyer confirmed that injuries sustained in the crash will “preclude him” from the appearance.

“Please forgive any inconvenience caused by this unexpected event,” attorney Robert Mezzetti wrote to the Santa Clara City Council. “I expect Mr. Montana will be able to appear in the near future.”

The tone of Mezzetti’s statements indicates that Montana wasn’t seriously injured.

    He was probably driving with those “muscle-building” shoes he advertises and the funky rounded soles messed him up while braking!

    seriously, what’s this got to do with favre?

    yall know… he has probly healed… and the less camp there is for everyone else, the easier it would be for him to step in and play just like it’s 2009… or 1999…

    Nick Hogan was driving

    No Shape Ups were injured in the accident.

    Just another example of how classless PFT commenters can be.

    For a classy guy like Joe, hopes for a speedy recovery.

    Did he see the ghost of john candy on the drive and become distracted?

  16. Steve says: Jun 13, 2011 8:29 PM

    Wouldn’t it be ironic if Leonard Marshall was driving the other car?

    Actually, I have much respect for Joe. I have no doubt he put a splint around his own broken arm, saved 3 lives with CPR, and calmly drove himself to the hospital in the ambulance.

    Shape ups saved my life tonight!

    Hows Jim Burt?

    scheduled to propose a luxury hotel project???

    what a renaissance man

  20. waxthat says: Jun 13, 2011 8:47 PM

    Get well soon Joe. You’re the epitome of cool and I’m sure you’ll get through this and your sons tribulation with ease. Don’t expect any less from the greatest clutch QB of all-time.

  21. imjinbrdgr says: Jun 13, 2011 8:49 PM

    did someone say Favre???

  22. vikesfansteve says: Jun 13, 2011 8:56 PM

    Joe Montana is really Barry Manilow.

  23. WingT says: Jun 13, 2011 9:49 PM

    The Favre camp is suspiciously silent on this breaking news.

  24. joetoronto says: Jun 13, 2011 9:51 PM

    Best wishes to the greatest QB of all time, hands down.

  25. gdeli says: Jun 13, 2011 10:16 PM

    god speed joe!

  26. yankees5775 says: Jun 13, 2011 10:16 PM

    Best wishes for a speedy recovery, Joe Cool…

    …. so Was Nick or Nate driving? (Sorry, couldn’t resist)

    Hey, sanjosecupcrazy , you are a stick-in-the-mud, you know that.

    Even some born-again Christians can enjoy a good Jesus joke. (Although I would not call some of these comments “good” jokes.)

  28. discosucs2005 says: Jun 13, 2011 10:30 PM

    Went to high school with Nate. Good guy. Bad Driver. I bet he was driving.

  29. AKA Slow Joe (Bucs fan) says: Jun 13, 2011 11:33 PM

    Still my hero. Godspeed, Joe Cool.

    I just had a flashback of Terry Bradshaw’s death.
