Steve started his NFL career with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, he only played 19 games with the team. Young signed with the San Francisco 49ers a few years later and was Joe Montana's backup.

The season concluded with a win over the San Diego Charger in Superbowl XXIX (29) 49-26, Young was named the game's MVP. Steve Young will be most remembered as a mobile quarterback able to escape from the pass rush. He is considered one of the greatest quarterbacks of all time.
