Joe Montana left the door open last week for another of his patented comebacks when he said it was “unlikely” he would attend the final 49ers regular-season game at Candlestick Park.

On Monday, he closed the door.

Montana attended the New Orleans Bowl on Saturday to watch his son, Nick, start at quarterback in Tulane’s 24-21 loss to Louisiana-Lafayette. Montana completed 5-of-8 passes for 63 yards and an interception before getting replaced.

Joe Montana announced Sunday in a series of messages on Twitter that he would not be in attendance Monday night when the 49ers play the Atlanta Falcons.
