Should Big Ben and the Steelers top the Packers at Super Bowl XLV in Dallas, he'll join Tom Brady (three), Troy Aikman (three), Joe Montana (four) and Steeler alum Terry Bradshaw (four) as the only NFL starting quarterbacks with three or more rings.
But which of the following quarterback will finish with the most Super Bowl rings when his career ends?
- Tom Brady appeared to be well on his way to a fourth ring this winter before his 14-2 Patriots bowed out of the postseason in embarrassing fashion to their rivals, the New York Jets. Luckily for Brady, the Pats are always in contention and the play-caller will have plenty of opportunities to add to his collection.
- Drew Brees, the reigning Super Bowl MVP, has one ring and the way he runs his offense in New Orleans, the Saints appear to be an annual threat in the NFC.
- Peyton Manning has been to the big show twice and has one shiny ring to show for. He'll go down as arguably the greatest passing quarterback of all-time, but how many rings will No. 18 end up with when it's all said and done?
- Ben Roethliseberger, as mentioned earlier, is looking to add a third piece of jewelery to his bling bank. The Steelers quarterback will be making his third Super Bowl appearance since 2006 and is on pace to make it back to the biggest sports holiday of the year many more times.
- Aaron Rodgers has established himself as one of the game's elite passers and leaders. With a strong, young defense, the Packers appear to be on their way to years of NFC dominance. Rodgers has a chance to bag his first ring — to go with that imaginary championship belt — next Sunday in Dallas.
