  • NFL Network's Top Ten QB Super Bowl performances.

    10. Drew Brees Super Bowl XLIV: 32/39, 288 yards, 2 touchdowns/0 interceptions (tied Super Bowl record for completions).

    9. Kurt Warner Super Bowl XXXIV: 24/46, 414 yards, 2 touchdowns/0 interceptions (most passing yards in a Super Bowl).

    8. Tom Brady Super Bowl XXXVIII: 32/47, 354 yards, 3 touchdowns/1 interception (set Super Bowl completion record).

    7. Joe Montana Super Bowl XXIII: 23/36, 357 yards, 2 touchdowns/0 interceptions.

    6. Troy Aikman Super Bowl XXVII: 22/30, 273 yards, 4 touchdowns/0 interceptions.

    5. Phil Simms Super Bowl XXI: 22/25, 268 yards, 3 touchdowns/0 interceptions.

    4. Terry Bradshaw Super Bowl XIII: 17/30, 318 yards, 4 touchdowns/1 interception.

    3. Doug Williams Super Bowl XXII: 18/29, 340 yards, 4 touchdowns/1 interception.

    2. Steve Young Super Bowl XXIX: 24/36, 325 yards, 6 touchdowns/0 interceptions.

    1. Joe Montana Super Bowl XXIV: 22/29, 297 yards, 5 touchdowns/0 interceptions. (Helped team set Super Bowl record of points scored against defense that allowed the least points that season).

    What do you think? Any snubs? Any that shouldn't be listed? Just remember that it's always better to witness these games instead of just looking at pure statistics. Even reading about the situation helps.

    I have always been and will always be partial to Joe Namath and Superbowl III. Not for the statistical output of Joe Willie, but the magnitude of the win; basically having the fate of the AFL on his shoulders.

    He finished 17/28 for 206 yards...hardly what you would call an impressive performance, certainly not one of the all time greats. However, I will never be able to ignore the fact that this was the QB who, in Norm Van Brocklin's words, "was playing in his first professional game", went up against the team that was considered to be the greatest football team in history....and won.

    Brocklin was of course alluding to the fact that the AFL was so vastly inferior to the NFL that Namath's previous years weren't against professional caliber opponents. Yet Namath and the Jets came out victorious while simultaneously proving to the NFL and the owners, that the AFL was worthy of being allowed to merge with their NFL.

    If it were straight up stastical performances, than he wouldn't sniff the top 50, let alone top 10...but since we're talking Top performances, this will always be a top 10 to me, for the mere fact that it changed the history of the NFL, which lead to the NFL we now love.

      I think #1 and #2 are correct. The rest are fine, but those two need to be at the top of every list like this.
