It's still painful to acknowledge: William (the Refrigerator) Perry scored a Super Bowl rushing touchdown, but future Hall of Famer Walter Payton did not. Instead of giving the ball to the man who was the NFL's alltime leading rusher at the time, Ditka allowed Perry, a 318-pound defensive tackle and sometime blocking back best known for his cute nickname, to score on a third-quarter one-yard touchdown run, his only carry of the game. In that same 46-10 rout of New England, Bears fullback Matt Suhey had an 11-yard rushing touchdown, and Chicago quarterback Jim McMahon punched in a couple of TDs, scoring on runs of two and one yards. Payton, meanwhile, never sniffed the end zone and finished with just 61 yards on 22 carries.
