10 Players You Didn't Know Won A Super Bowl

Winning a Super Bowl is a sheen thing, it's a 53-man roster loaded with dozens of soldiers and many front office employees but when it comes to Super Bowl champions, only stars get the credit.

Think of the New England Patriots dynasty, you only hear Tom Brady's names, think of the Seattle Seahawks you only hear of Russell Wilson and Richard Sherman.

Because stars earn the attention, some of these notable players quietly celebrated a Super Bowl championship so quietly and snacks that you probably didn't even notice.

Today we take a look at ten players you didn't know won a Super Bowl.

10 Players You Didn't Know Won A Super Bowl

10. Jim Sorgi

Sorgi had one of the easiest jobs in NFL history. He was Peyton Manning's backup. He played for the Colts from 2004 to 2009. In those years, he threw for 9,209 yards, 2 touchdowns, and 1 interception. He last played in 2008 in a meaningless game against the Tennessee Titans. He had 178 yards and no touchdowns. It's sure nice being a backup to a great quarterback.

9. Joe Klecko

What if i told you that a player who was on the Patriots won three Super Bowl rings? A player named Joe Klecko played for the Patriots and then he went to play for the Colts. He played for the Colts in the 2006 AFC Championship game. He was on the Colts until 2008. He won three Super Bowl rings. Most people did not know about this player because he did not play for very long.

8. Tarvaris Jackson

Tarvaris Jackson played for the Minnesota Vikings for a long time, and then he went to the Seattle Seahawks. He was a good backup quarterback. He signed a 2-year contract with the Seattle Seahawks. He was traded to the Buffalo Bills a year later. He played for the Buffalo Bills for a year, and then he went back to the Seattle Seahawks. He won a Super Bowl ring when he was Russell Wilson's backup. He completed 10 passes for 151 yards and 1 touchdown. He also rushed the ball once for a touchdown.

7. Dan Campbell

Campbell was a young interim head coach for the Miami Dolphins in 2015. He was 39 years old at the time, and he was taking over for Joe Philbin. Campbell had been on the Saints' coaching staff for a while, and he was familiar with the Saints organization. He was on their Super Bowl 44 championship team. Campbell didn't play all season with an MCL injury, but he stayed on the roster and was awarded a ring. He retired in 2009 and went out on top.

6. Mark Brunell

Brunell was a quarterback. He was a three time Pro Bowler. He played for the Jacksonville Jaguars. He led the NFL in passing yards in 1996. He played there for most of his career. He never won a Super Bowl. He played as the back up to Drew Brees in 2009 and won Super Bowl 44.

5. Tyrod Taylor

Taylor had two solid albums as the Buffalo Bills quarterback, tossing 37 touchdowns and 12 interceptions and two seasons as a starter. He also rushed for 1148 yards, perhaps you don't think he's capable of leading his team to a Super Bowl, but Taylor was Joe Flacco's backup during the 2012 season when the Baltimore Ravens won Super Bowl XLVII, that season not exactly great, but we suppose he earned his Championships in a way.

4. Jason Garret

Garrett had been the Cowboys head coach since the middle of 2010. As one playoff win to show for it, it's not exactly a great playoff coach. But Garrett was Troy Aikman's back up during the Cowboys' 1990s. Garrett was on the Cowboys' 1993 and 1995 championship team. Not bad for a guy who had 11 career touchdown passes and five interceptions.

3. Brian Griese

The Griese climate bill ran out of the shadow of John Elway. The former Denver Broncos legend retired with back-to-back championships. Griese was a solid starter for a few years, but it's hard to blame him for not doing much on those miserable Bears and Buccaneers teams. He was criticized a lot in his career, but he was also in the 1998 Broncos team that won the Super Bowl. Now you probably feel bad for mocking him all those years.

2. David Carr

The Houston Texans drafted David Carr in 2002. He was the first overall pick. But he was a huge bust. He had a bad career. Carr only had 55 touchdowns and 71 interceptions. It was a rough journey for him. He was a backup for Eli Manning during the 2011 New York Giants magical run to Super Bowl 46. Carr didn't get to play at all that season. He did get to watch Manning lead the Giants to their second Super Bowl in five seasons. Carr may have been a bust, but he accomplished something most NFL players don't. He got to play in a Super Bowl.

1. Jeff Fisher

Fisher was a mockery of NFL head coaches, a man who can get fired despite never winning more than seven games in five seasons as the Rams head coach, he also had just two winning seasons in his final seven years as a Tennessee Titans head coach. Nonetheless he was for the legendary 1985 Chicago Bears team that won the Super Bowl, not bad for a seventh round defensive back.
