PHOENIX—The story has been out for a few days and it’s worth taking a look at it if you haven’t seen it.
ESPN.com ranks the 82 starting quarterbacks in the history of the Super Bowl.
From San Francisco’s Joe Montana in Super Bowl XXIV at the very top of the list all the way down to New England’s Tony Eason in Super Bowl XX. The Bears got after him in such a way he was gone during the second quarter after completing none of his six passes and losing a fumble.
His counterpart, Jim McMahon, came in at No. 21 as he was the first quarterback in Super Bowl history to rush for two touchdowns.
Rex Grossman? He came in at No. 62, one slot below ex-Bear Chris Chandler for his losing effort in Super Bowl XXXIII with Atlanta. Grossman was 20-for-28 for only 165 yards with one touchdown and two picks, one of which the Colts’ Kelvin Hayden returned 56 yards for a touchdown.
So, according to this list, Grossman was right in the middle of where the Super Bowl losing quarterbacks were stacked up. Some better. Some much worse.
