Pro football has shifted more than once from a run-first to a pass-first league. But in the early days of the Super Bowl, the NFL was more run-oriented, which obviously meant quarterbacks were relied on significantly less.
Still, that doesn't mean we should forget about the following honorable mentions. And as you can see, quarterbacks became greater contributors as the years went by.
Bart Starr, Packers, 1966-67 Playoffs (two games):
Six touchdowns, one interception, 68.6 completion percentage and 554 passing yards
Joe Namath, Jets, 1968-69 Playoffs (two games):
Three touchdowns, one interception, 46.8 completion percentage and 472 passing yards
Kenny Stabler, Raiders, 1976-77 Playoffs (three games):
Four touchdowns, zero interceptions, 61.2 completion percentage and 501 passing yards
Doug Williams, Redskins, 1987-88 Playoffs (three games):
Seven touchdowns, two interceptions, 48.8 completion percentage and 666 passing yards

Eight touchdowns, one interception, 62.2 completion percentage and 823 passing yards
