Over the next week and a half I'll be charting out the progressions of some of the Super Bowl Records. Why? Because we all want to learn.
This is just common place right now, Bart Starr out performed Len Dawson in Super Bowl I and thus set all the meaningful passing records. In this case he threw 2 touchdown passes. This record was tied 4 times through the years before it was broken. Daryle LaMonica threw 2 tds in Super Bowl II in the Raiders loss. Roger Staubach threw 2 tds in both Super Bowl VI and Super Bowl XX. And finally Terry Bradshaw equaled Roger's output in Super Bowl XX with two of his own tds. Bradshaw took three seasons to reset the record when he threw for four TDs in Super Bowl XIII. This record was matched by Doug Williams in the Redskins Super Bowl XXII victory. The great Joe Montana wiped out this record when he threw for five tds in Super Bowl XXIV. Montana's record was than dumped by his successor when Steve Young threw for 6 tds in the 49ers annhiliation of the Chargers in Super Bowl XXIX.
