Tom Brady, Joe Montana and Players with Multiple Super Bowl MVPs

Tom Brady And Joe Montana Have Won Three Super Bowl MVPs

Tom Brady And Joe Montana Have Won Three Super Bowl MVPs

Let’s wrap up the football season here at Sports List of the Day (sure, there’ll be a new NFL post around here and there) – but with the Super Bowl and the 2014 season over, here’s one for the road (or offseason, if you will).

More than half (27) of the Super Bowl MVPs have been quarterbacks. Aside from spectacular performances and directing the offense, they are occasionally the default choice.

With those kind of odds, it’s not a great surprise that all five players who have taken the Super Bowl MVP more than once (not easy to do considering you actually have to win the Super Bowl more than once in the first place) are quarterbacks.

Tom Brady won his third yesterday, continuing the career comparison with another three-time SB MVP winner, Joe Montana.

Eli Manning took both awards in the New York Giants‘ two wins over Brady’s New England Patriots.

Terry Bradshaw won two MVP’s out of his four wins with the Pittsburgh Steelers, and Bart Starr won his back-to-back in the first two Super Bowls.

Quarterbacks and Super Bowl MVP’s by Position

And He's Gone...Desmond Howard Returns It 99 Yards For The TD And Takes Home Super Bowl XXXI MVP

And He’s Gone…Desmond Howard Returns It 99 Yards For The TD And Takes Home Super Bowl XXXI MVP

It’s Super Bowl Sunday! Thanks for following Sports List of the Day throughout all the NFL playoffs!

Today, let’s look at the Super Bowl MVP.

Tom Brady has won his third today with a 328-yard, four touchdown performance (multiple winners here) – it’s the 27th time the award has gone to the quarterback, most of any position by far.

Twenty different QBs have won. If there’s no conspicuous standout by the end of the game, often the award goes to the quarterback, so that helps up the numbers.

Hard to believe, but only seven running backs have won the SB MVP – none in 18 years. Wow. Who would think that? So much for the critical running game in winning a title, at least in today’s game.

Nine defensive players have won it, divided amongst four positions, and Desmond Howard‘s big Super Bowl XXXI, capped off by a 99-yard kick return touchdown to put away the New England Patriots, puts one in the KR column.

Check out all the MVPs’ statistical highlights at my source, espn.com.
