Top 10 Super Bowl Goats
All NFL players dream of playing on the biggest stage the NFL has to offer…the Super Bowl. However, for some of those players, the dream turns into a nightmare. Jim McCurdie of foxsports.com ranks the top 10 players whose Super Sunday was anything but.
Kerry Collins, Giants SB XXXV
Jan. 28, 2001
Like a few others on this list, Collins had the great misfortune of playing quarterback against a team that reached the big game on the strength of its imposing defense. With Super Bowl MVP Ray Lewis leading the charge, the Ravens held Collins to 15 of 39 passing and intercepted him four times, returning one of those for a touchdown. The Giants managed just one first down on their final four possessions, and left with a 34-7 loss.
Is it better to have loved and lost, than never loved at all? John Elway ended up winning two Super Bowls, but for the rest of the goats on this list, it might have been better to never have loved (aka Super Bowl appearance) at all.
