    Three of these guys victimized by the quarterback fixation.

    How about Wilber Marshall in XXVI? Probably one of many defensive players overlooked through the years.

    Marshall finished with 11 tackles, one sack, a pass defensed and two forced fumbles. He played on another level in that game. A lot of his hits were just brutal.

    Rypien had a great game, but that O-line could've made a lot of average QBs look like MVPs.

    Washington and Martin were screwed. No offense to Snell, but no person was going to vote against Namath in that election.

    I voted for James Washington, but Adam Vinatieri in SB XXXVI deserves mentioning. Brady had an average, if not terrible game (something like 120 yards and one TD that was a spectacular catch, IIRC), and nobody else really stood out. Vinatieri hit the game-winner, another field goal, and was as good a pick as anybody else.

    You could make a good case for Ty Law in that game as well.

    The MVP of last year's Super Bowl should have been Dominic Rhodes (113 yards rushing, 1 TD, 1 rec. for 8 yds). Manning threw for 247 yards and a TD, but also a pick and lost a fumble.

    Ha. Better than Larry Brown, whose entire contribution was catching the two easiest interceptions in Super Bowl history.

    For me, this list starts with Thurman Thomas against the Giants. I don't care if the Bills lost that game, to me that day, he was the best player on the field.
