Most modern-day NFL legends have experienced the thrill of hoisting the Lombardi Trophy at least once. But surprisingly, not everyone gets the chance to call their team the greatest. Some of the best players in NFL history were never able to win the title game.
Greatness doesn’t guarantee a player a ring, let alone a chance at one. The number of juggernauts who came up empty-handed goes on and on. It’s hard to believe these players don’t have a championship on their resume.
One Hall of Famer had four chances to win one but came up short each time.
It’s not rare for an elite player to spend the majority of his career with a bad franchise. Gore rarely complained when the San Francisco 49ers were an awful team. The same goes for when was with the Indianapolis Colts and Miami Dolphins.
“The Inconvenient Truth” is fourth all-time in career rushing yards who had a shot at winning Super Bowl XLVII. Despite coming up short, Gore continues to chug along as he enters the very last days of his NFL career.
