Super Bowls MVPs

By Patrick Mondout

Although Roger Craig and his three touchdowns in Super Bowl XIX and Eric Wright and his stellar play in the secondary in Super Bowl XVI may have been just as deserving, Joe Montana won the MVP in these games as well as in the 55-10 blowout of Denver in SB XXIV for a league record three Most Valuable Player (MVP) awards.

Richard Dent of the famed Chicago Bears "46" defense coached by defensive coordinator Buddy Ryan was the only defensive player to win the award during the Awesome80s.

The table below shows the results of each of the Super Bowls with the MVP (a list for the Super70s is here).
