Rich Gannon: "There was a lot at stake for Steve Young after having played behind Joe Montana for many years. This was his chance to win his own Super Bowl. He was almost flawless in passing for six touchdowns. It was one of those nights where you don't really remember the ball ever hitting the ground. It was one of the best Super Bowl performances ever that I can remember."
