Back Shoulder Fade When did It start?

As a Packer fan, I've been treated to some great and highly successful passing in recent years utilizing what is called the back shoulder fade.

I puzzle over the following: NFL channel has been replaying SB's recently and I took the opportunity to watch the Packers two appearances for the 96 and 97 seasons. I saw not one back shoulder fade from either team. Very different from the Packer SB for the 2010 season. My question is when did it come into vogue, and is there any reason it wasn't used sooner other than no one thought of it?
