Smith in rarefied Super Bowl MVP air

I was just perusing the Seahawks’ season wrapup media release, and ran across a chart I missed at the time, listing the youngest Super Bowl MVPs in the history of the game.

Seattle linebacker Malcolm Smith is fourth the fourth-youngest player to win the award, at 24 years, 212 days. The three who are younger rank as among three of the greatest to ever play the game.

Here’s the chart:

Player Game Age
Marcus Allen, L.A. Raiders, Super Bowl XVIII, 23 years, 302 days
Lynn Swann, Pitt, Super Bowl X, 23 years, 317 days
Tom Brady, NE, Super Bowl XXXVI, 24 years, 184 days
Malcolm Smith, Sea, Super Bowl XLVIII, 24 years, 212 days

Pretty heady territory.
