    hmmmmmmmmm thinking ............ Players that arent hofers but had impact evry year ''''

    ok thier are 10 players that were great that never played in a super bowl

    here they are

    10. Cris Carter

    Closet Call: 1998 NFC Championship Game

    Few players have proven so skillful and exceptional in the wide receiver position as much as Cris Carter.
    In the 16 seasons Carter spent in the NFL, he played for the Philadelphia Eagles, the Minnesota Vikings, and the Miami Dolphins, but did not see Super Bowl success with any of the three franchises.


    9. Tony Gonzalez

    Closet Call: 2012 NFC Championship Game

    Currently a sports analyst for Fox Sports, Tony Gonzalez spent 16 seasons in the NFL trying to claim a Super Bowl ring.
    During those 16 seasons, Gonzalez played for two NFL franchises, the Kansas City Chiefs and the Atlanta Falcons.
    The tight end had a tough career, which saw him play in just one playoff game. But despite his Super Bowl ring snub, Gonzalez’s performance saw him named to the Pro Bowl on 14 occasions, which tied him with Peyton Manning, Tom Brady, and Brice Matthews for the most selection to the NFL Pro Bowl.
    Tony Gonzalez’s closest call to the Super Bowl was at the NFC Championship Game in the 2012 season, which the Falcons lost to the San Francisco 49ers.

    8. LaDainian Tomlinson

    Closet Call: 2010 AFC Championship Game

    In any conversation about the greatest right back in the history of NFL, LaDainian Tomlinson’s name is bound to come up.
    The former NFL right-back and three-time NFL touchdown leader played for 11 seasons in the NFL for two NFL franchises, the San Diego Chargers and the New York Jets.
    An exceptional player, LaDainian Tomlinson, struggled a lot during the postseasons in his 11 year NFL career. Despite his struggles, he managed to claim notable awards in the NFL, such as his 2006 NFL MVP award and 2006 NFL Offensive Player of the Year award.
    The closest LaDainian Tomlinson came to the Super Bowl was in the 2010 season AFC Championship Game between the New York Jets and the Pittsburgh Steelers. The Steelers overcame the Jets as the match ended in 24-19.


    7. Eric Dickerson

    Closet Call: 1985 NFC Championship Game

    Pro Football Hall of Famer, Eric Dickerson, was one of the NFL’s top running backs in the 1980s.
    The former NFL running back played for four NFL teams, namely the Los Angeles Rams, the Indianapolis Colts, the Los Angeles Raiders, and the Atlanta Falcons.
    Dickerson’s antics on the pitch saw him win the 1983 NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year, the 1986 NFL Offensive Player of the Year, and lead the NFL in rushing yards on four occasions.
    The closest Eric Dickerson came to the Super Bowl was the 1985 season NFC Championship game, where the Los Angeles Rams locked horns against the Chicago Bears. The game ended in favor of the Bears, who won 24 – nil.



    6. O. J. Simpson ( sorry not posting his great seasons he murdered people)

    5. Earl Campbell

    Closet Call: 1979 AFC Championship Game

    Now covered in grey hair, the man dubbed The Tyler Rose ruled the NFL from the 1978 season to the 1985 season.
    During his eight-season stint in the NFL, Campbell played for the Houston Oilers and New Orleans Saints. He led the league in rushing yards three times and rushing touchdown two times.
    His impressive skills earned him the 1979 NFL MVP award and the NFL Offensive Player of the Year on three occasions. The former NFL running back was named to the Pro Bowl on five occasions.
    The closest Earl Campbell came to the Super Bowl was in the 1979 AFC Championship Game, where the Oilers lost to the Steelers.



    4. Gale Sayers

    NFL contemporaries of Gale Sayers can attest to the difficulty in tackling the halfback who played in the NFL for seven seasons.
    Those seven seasons which he spent with the Chicago Bears were riddled with injuries, limiting him to give a season of play. Despite that, Sayers had a very productive season, which could have been better if he had spent more time in the league.
    The 1965 round 5 pick won the 1965 NFL Rookie of the Year award, led the NFL in rushing yards on two occasions, and the 1969 NFL Comeback Player of the Year award. He was named to the Pro Bowl on four occasions.
    Despite the impressive records Sayers lay claims to, he never made it to the postseason.
    After exiting the NFL, the Pro Football Hall of Famer attended to administrative affairs of the varsity Athletics team of the Southern Illinois University and Tennessee State University.


    3. Dick Butkus

    Only a few linebackers in the history of the NFL attack as fiercely as Dick Butkus. The former NFL star spent nine seasons in the league, playing for the Chicago Bears.
    From 1965 to 1973, where he played for the Chicago Bears, Butkus made it to the Pro Bowl throughout all the seasons he spent in the NFL, except his final season.
    The two-time NFL Defensive Player of the Year never made it to the postseason; thus, Butkus never had a chance to play in the Super Bowl.
    The Pro Bowl Hall of Famer went on to engage in acting and sports commentary after his nine-season stint in the NFL.


    2. Deacon Jones

    Closet Call: 1969 Divisional Round

    Late Deacon Jones was a great defensive end in the NFL that he was dubbed “the Secretary of Defense.” The man who specialized in quarterback “sack,” a term unique to him, played in the NFL for 14 seasons.
    He played for the Los Angeles Rams, the San Diego Chargers, and the Washington Redskins during those seasons. He appeared in eight Pro Bowls and won the NFL Defensive Player of the Year on two occasions.
    The closest Deacon Jones came to the Super Bowl was in the 1969 Divisional Round, where the Los Angeles Rams lost to the Minnesota Vikings.
    1. Barry Sanders

    Closet Call: 1991 NFC Championship Game

    A talented player, who recorded amazing achievements in the course of his decade long stint in the NFL, Barry Sanders is the greatest NFL player who never played in a Super Bowl game.
    Throughout the ten seasons the Pro Football Hall of Famer spent in the league, Sanders played for the Detroit Lions.
    Sanders won the 1989 NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year, the NFL Offensive Player of the Year on two occasions, and led the NFL in rushing yards four times and rushing touchdown once.
    Years after departing from the league, Barry Sanders’ elusiveness as a running back is still recognized. In 2007, in the NFL Top 10 series, NFL Network crowned him as the most elusive runner in the league’s history.
    The closest Barry Sanders came to the Super Bowl was at the 1991 NFC Championship, where the Detroit Lions lost to the Washington Redskins.
