A Half Assed Super Bowl List - The 50 Greatest Players in Super Bowl History

Thursday, January 28, 2016

ESPN is currently doing a list of the 50 greatest players in Super Bowl history.

That's my corner, but I've never done that list.

Sadly, I didn't think I'd be preparing a new list this year, so I have the names, but not a ranking. I'll shoot for next year, when I'll add a 50th name and then keep adding a name as the years advance.

Edit - I'm adding the 50th name now. 

Here are my last 5 out, they're the one year wonders.

Again, not in order.

Marcus Allen
Timmy Smith
Doug Williams
Phil Simms
Steve Young

Here's a list of 9 guys who were strongly considered but who did not make it.  Maybe one day.

Russell Wilson
Walt Garrison
Tony Dorsett
Willie Parker
John Elway
Cliff Branch
Chuck Howley
Bobby Wagner
Mike Webster

Another longstanding project of mine is re-awarding Super Bowl MVPs.  Here are my MVPs which are not in my top 50.

Matt Snell
Buck Buchanan
Mike Curtis
Duane Thomas
Ray Wersching
