MVP Jinx Alive
Super Bowl MVP QB Jinx Aftermath

As we alluded to prior to the smashing Seattle laid on Denver in Super Bowl XLVIII might not have been all that surprising to history lovers. Not when winning the league MVP award has been a kiss of death for quarterbacks in Super Bowl games.

It can now been stated that these trophy winners have suffered a fate similar to Heisman Trophy winners in bowl games. 

Here is the league record of NFL QB MVP's playing in Super Bowl games throughout the history of the Super Bowl:

1967 - SB I - Bart Starr - Packers (-14) 35, Chiefs 10 (WIN)
1969 - SB III - Earl Morrall - Colts (-18) 7, Jets 16 (LOSS)
1979 - SB XIII - Terry Bradshaw - Steelers (-3.5) 35, Cowboys 31 (WIN)
1982 - SB XVI - Ken Anderson - Bengals (+1) 21, 49ers 26 (LOSS)
1984 - SB XVIII - Joe Theismann - Redskins (-3) 9, Raiders 38 (LOSS)
1985 - SB XIX - Dan Marino - Dolphins (+3.5) 16, 49ers 38 (LOSS)
1988 - SB XXII - John Elway - Broncos (-3) 10, Redskins 42 (LOSS)
1989 - SB XXIII - Boomer Esiason - Bengals (+7) 16, 49ers 20 (LOSS)
1990 - SB XXIV - Joe Montana - 49ers (-12) 55, Broncos 10 (WIN)
1995 - SB XXIX - Steve Young - 49ers (-18.5) 49, Chargers 26 (WIN)
1997 - SB XXXI - Brett Favre - Packers (-14) 35, Patriots 21 (WIN)
1998 - SB XXXII - Brett Favre - Packers (-11) 24, Broncos 31 (LOSS)
2000 - SB XXXIV - Kurt Warner - Rams (-7) 23, Titans 16 (WIN)
2002 - SB XXXVI - Kurt Warner - Rams (-14) 17, Patriots 20 (LOSS)
2003 - SB XXXVII - Rich Gannon - Raiders (-4) 21, Buccaneers 48 (LOSS)
2008 - SB XLII - Tom Brady - Patriots (-12) 14, Giants 17 (LOSS)
2010 - SB XLIV - Peyton Manning - Colts (-5) 17, Saints 31 (LOSS)
2014 - SB XLVIII - Peyton Manning - Broncos (-2) 8, Seahawks 43 (LOSS)
 
Collectively they are now 6-12 straight up and 5-11-2 against the spread in all games, including 0-5 both SU and ATS since 2002.

The most infamous loser was Baltimore's Earl Morrall to Joe Namath and the Jets in SB III.

For what it’s worth the most red-faced loser is arguably Peyton Manning, following this year’s Super Bowl beat down.  And yours truly, too, for backing Denver in the contest.

We don’t want to beat a dead horse to death but in horse racing vernacular the Broncos veered out of the gate and never steadied.
