Talk of Fame Network
Last weekend, the NFL named Tom Brady the MVP of Super Bowl XLIX.
This week the Talk of Fame Network has named Joe Montana the Super Bowl MVP of all-time.
To celebrate the Super Bowl, the Talk of Fame Network offered a list of 10 past Super Bowl MVPs in our weekly poll – except that we let this poll run two weeks because of all the options.
In addition to Brady and Montana, voters could select from Bart Starr, Joe Namath, Chuck Howley (the only player from a losing team ever named MVP), Terry Bradshaw, Jerry Rice, Doug Williams, Eli Manning and Malcolm Smith.
But Montana was still a runaway winner, receiving 39 percent of the vote. Brady was next with 23 percent while all the other candidates were in single digits. The hosts from the Talk of Fame Network concurred. Ron Borges, Clark Judge and Rick Gosselin all cast their ballots for Montana.
“He took his team on a 92-yard drive in the closing minutes to win a Super Bowl,” Borges said. “He won four of them (Super Bowls) and didn’t throw an interception in any of them. How do you get more valuable than that?”
Judge echoed Borges: “Four rings and no picks equals one helluva quarterback.”
Brady has appeared in a record six Super Bowls, won four of them and was the MVP of three of them. But all it could get him was second place.
