News Post

Behind every Super Bowl championship team there are plenty of star players and often times Hall of Famers as well. But not every star gets a ring or even the chance to play for one. It's the reason Randy Moss took a trip to New England and, more recently, Tony Gonzalez joined forces with the Atlanta Falcons.

Some players capture our attention with their work ethic, personality, or on-field performance. We love to see hard work and humility rewarded and it's slightly disappointing when the NFL's greats don't at least get a shot at hoisting the Lombardi Trophy.

Sound Off: What NFL player, past or present, do you think most deserves a Super Bowl ring?

Dan Fouts and Marino, Both amazing gunslingers who were unfortunate to not win it all

Chris Carter, wake up!

Since no love is given to kickers, I'd nominate Jason Hanson. He was more than faithful to the Detroit Lions for 20+ seasons, and also has amassed the most losses for a player (obviously, a majority cannot be credited to his leg). I am certainly not saying that others named/to be named are unworthy.

Jack Youngblood. One of the best DEs ever.
# 5 Aggies67 @ 01/27/14 03:54 PM
Eric Dickerson.

Jack Youngblood played in an SB, but didn't win,.

I'm really surprised TO was not mentioned anywhere. Say what one will about his attitude, the guy was a baller and almost single-handedly won a SB for the Iggles on one good leg. Guy came close.
# 16 joeyraiders01 @ 01/28/14 09:21 AM
Bo Jackson
Tim Brown
# 17 J_Posse @ 01/28/14 11:28 AM
Jim Kelly
Thurman Thomas
Bruce Smith
Andre Reed*
Steve Tasker*
Cornelius Bennett*
Darryl Talley
Don Bebe
Kent Hull*

Anyone else I didn't mention that played with the Buffalo Bills from '91-'94.

Asterisk = should be considered heavily for the Hall of Fame, but won't be because of the 4 straight SB losses.
