Berachot 16b-17a lists a number of prayers that various amoraim recited at the end of Amidah.

Common practice (at least in the Ashkenazi and Edot Mizrach siddurim that I've seen) seems to be to recite (a text based on) the prayer of Mar son of Ravina (Elokai netzor).

Are there sources that discuss why it was that reciting specifically his prayer ultimately became the widespread custom (as opposed to the prayer of one of the other amoraim)?
