Based on the assumption that it gets no worse than zero -- Morton's record-low passer rating on this day -- this is easily the worst performance by any quarterback in Super Bowl history. Let's put it this way: if Morton had simply thrown 15 passes into the dirt in 15 attempts, his passer rating would have been an Tony Eason-esque 39.6. He was eventually replaced by the legendary Norris Weese, who was no better (4 of 10 for 22 yards), but who at least guided Denver to its only touchdown in the 27-10 loss after a long Rick Upchurch kick return.
