Who was your all time favorite player in any superbowl?

I must say I am a die hard Minnesota Vikings fan, but I remember years ago about the Washington Redskins running back John Riggins in Super Bowl 17. He was named Super Bowl MVP. He finished the game with 2 Super Bowl records. This was in the year January 30, 1983.

The Mike Jones tackle that was the last play of the game in the 2000 Super Bowl XXXIV - was epic and let the Rams win :)

I was sure it was Steve Tasker, but apparently not:

So I'm gonna say Jerry Rice.

Two performances stick out in my mind:

I had been a big fan of Doug Williams when he played at Grambling State (35-5 record after his freshman year, AP first-team All-American and fourth in the Heisman voting his senior year) and for Tampa Bay (seventeenth pick in the draft, league All-Rookie team, led them to a conference championship game and three out of four years in the playoffs after Bucs had sucked for so long — I was also a big John McKay/USC fan). When Super Bowl XXII was played, I was working a job where my boss was a die-hard Redskins fan. I gave him strong assurance that Williams would lead the 'Skins to victory. They fell behind Elway and the Broncos 10-0 early. Williams then led them on a furious, record-setting, second-quarter comeback and a 42-10 victory.

I was really impressed by the performance of Lynn Swann in Super Bowl X. "The Levitating Leap" is perhaps my favourite football play ever.
