Here’s how other signal-callers fared as 49ers’ Brock Purdy joins list of Super Bowl’s youngest starting QBs

When Brock Purdy takes the field for the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl LVIII, he’ll be making history as the third-youngest quarterback to start in a Super Bowl at the age of 24 years and 46 days. His goal is to become the second-youngest starting quarterback to raise the Vince Lombardi Trophy, but standing in his way is the formidable defense of the Kansas City Chiefs, led by Patrick Mahomes.

Purdy won’t be facing this challenge alone; Niners General Manager John Lynch has put together a deep and talented roster that includes some of the NFL’s best players. The historical perspective reveals that the 10 youngest quarterbacks to start in previous Super Bowls have had a mixed record of 4-6. Some performed well in defeat, while others struggled even in victory.

Among the notable names on this list are Dan Marino, Ben Roethlisberger, and Tom Brady, each dealing with unique challenges in their Super Bowl debuts. Interestingly, Joe Burrow and Russell Wilson, despite being on the losing side, delivered standout performances in their respective games.

As Purdy looks to create his own Super Bowl legacy, the pressure is on to navigate the path to victory against the formidable Chiefs. Whether he can outsmart Mahomes and lead his team to triumph will unfold in the eagerly anticipated Super Bowl showdown.
