ok technically he gets it for "winning" the SB - not the 25 QB rating per se.
But come on! I could probably get a 25 QB rating! That's like the SAT equivilent of writing your name on the sheet and handing it in!
And you gotta wonder what his QB rating would be without the "phantom touchdown"!
What we call "QB rating" should, technically, be called "passer rating"--as it depends only on passing statistics. So, the "phantom" TD doesn't affect the rating either way.
And, no, QB rating can't be negative (nor can the score for any of its four components).

That has to be a record also. Worst QB performance ever in the big game.
As the "Fanfrom1960", I have watched all 40, or all XL super bowls, and, as I've already posted since the game, this was the worst super bowl ever with regard to quality of play and quality of officiating. There have been lots of "worse games" because there have been so many blowouts, one of which N.E. was in (vs. Bears, UGH). You're right though, the Steelers put up maybe the worst performance ever while still winning the Super Bowl. The other contender was the mistake riddled SB V, Baltimore Colts over Dallas.

So what can we discuss? Is it okay to say that Tony Eason had a crappy game in '85? Can we say that Brad Johnson wasn't the main reason the Bucs won?
Or is it just the latest SB we can't dicsuss? Or the Steelers we can't discuss? Or Rothliesberger? Or what?
Please set out some rules for us so we will know what we cannot discuss in this discussion forum.

And yet, Ben's 101 passer rating for the playoffs leads all playoff QBs by 10-15 points. How you like dem apples? Better than your sour grapes and whine.

According to the article, he doesn't get a bonus for the playoffs.
He just gets a bonus for his "outstanding performance in the greatest Super Bowl of all time."
