In today’s NFL game the most important position is the quarterback. In fact, there have been 27 quarterbacks awarded the MVP out of 50 total Super Bowls played to date. In Super Bowl 51, there were two great quarterbacks playing and one of those quarterbacks is a guaranteed first-ballot Hall of Famer.
Is there biased towards quarterbacks, though? Let’s just think about this for a second. The ball is in their hands every play, in a league that protects them more than any player on the field. Also, the game has changed to more of a passing game and the defense cannot guard today’s wide receivers for as long either. The wide receivers have historically gotten bigger, faster, and stronger.
And of course, once again, A QB is the Super Bowl MVP.
