    I've been looking around online and haven't found anything yet, but I was wondering where Manning's 81.8 QB rating in the Super Bowl ranks in history. I thought some of you with press materials from the game might know.

    It seemed like a fairly mediocre performance, but I'm curious as to where it stacks up against the other 81 QBs.

    It would be better than Rex Grossman's.
    One down, 80 more to go.... good luck to you, son

    Am also going to guess Craig Morton, tony Eason and Joe Kapp were also cut from the same cloth

    i'm too lazy to look it up, but rest assured that a passer rating of above 80 is FAR from a below par super bowl performance.

    Check this link:


    It has an Excel spreadsheet with the passer ratings of every man who's thrown a pass in the Super Bowl.

    There are 46 "passers" with ratings above Manning's 81.8 on Sunday. However, 9 of those were running backs or backups who made less than five attempts.

    Ratings above 100
    1986- Simms, 150.9
    1989- Montana, 147.6
    1980- Plunkett, 145.0
    1992- Aikman, 140.7
    1994- Young, 134.8
    1987- Williams, 127.9
    1984- Montana, 127.2
    1975- Bradshaw, 122.5
    1978- Bradshaw, 119.2
    1966- Starr, 116.2
    1971- Staubach, 115.9
    1988- Montana, 115.2
    2003- Delhomme, 113.6 (L)
    2004- Brady, 110.2
    1973- Griese, 110.1
    1995- Aikman, 108.8
    1974- Bradshaw, 108.0
    1996- Favre, 107.9
    1985- McMahon, 104.2
    1977- Staubach, 102.6
    1979- Bradshaw, 101.9
    2003- Brady, 100.5
    1978- Staubach, 100.4 (L)
    1981- Montana, 100.0

    Incidentally, three players have perfect ratings of 158.3: Randle El (Pit, 2006); Newhouse (Dal, 1977); McCutcheon (LA, 1979). All of them threw a TD pass on their only attempts.

    And for the sadistic :D:

    Worst passer ratings
    1977- Morton, 0.0
    2000- Collins, 7.1
    1968- Morrall, 9.3
    1974- Tarkenton, 14.1
    1989- Elway, 19.4
    1972- Kilmer, 19.6

    Eason, who was 0-for-6 before getting yanked, actually had a rating of 39.6 because he threw no interceptions.

    It's higher than John Elway's in Super Bowl XXXII against Green Bay, Oh, yeah Joe Theismann the year the Redskins won was in the low 70s, too.
    Because the losing team tends to throw on every down towards the end of the game, some of their quarterback ratings are amazingly bad. But the chff ratings are incomplete. Jake Delhomme was above 100 in SB XXVIII, too. He was higher than Brady.

    How can anyone take seriously a statistic that registers its perfect score at 158.3?

    Fuckabuncha NFL.

    Good catch, MG. I just skipped right over Delhomme as I was typing it in.


    Lowest ratings for winning QBs
    2006- Roethlisberger, 22.6
    2000- Dilfer, 50.9
    1998- Elway, 51.9
    1970- Morrall, 54.0
    1982- Theismann, 75.1
    1993- Aikman, 77.2
    2002- Johnson, 79.9
    2007- Manning, 81.8
    1968- Namath, 83.3

    Great find, Buck.

  12. Manning's passer rating is lowest by a Super Bowl MVP
