Answer: The first Super Bowl game played in 1967 was known as the 'AFL-NFL World Championship Game'. Lamar Hunt, founder of the American Football League and owner of the Kansas City Chiefs from 1960 until his death in 2006, first suggested the name 'Super Bowl' based on the 'Super Ball' toy his children had been playing with. He initially suggested it as a temporary name until a better name could be determined. It wasn’t until Super Bowl III in 1969 when the championship game became officially known as the Super Bowl.
Answer: No, an NFL player does not have to play in the Super Bowl to get a Super Bowl ring. In fact, he doesn't even have to be on the active roster of the winning team. The NFL allots 150 rings for the winning team to distribute as it wishes. Also, the winning team often purchases more rings to distribute to people beyond the 150 allotment. These rings are mementos of the Super Bowl win and typically include the team name, year, Super Bowl number, player name, and uniform number.
Answer: John Elway of the Denver Broncos was the first quarterback to start five Super Bowls. His record in those games was 2-3.
- Super Bowl XXI (Jan 25, 1987): NY Giants 39 - Denver Broncos 20
- Super Bowl XXII (Jan 31, 1988): Washington Redskins 42 - Denver Broncos 10
- Super Bowl XXIV (Jan 28, 1990): SF 49ers 55 - Denver Broncos 10
- Super Bowl XXXII (Jan 25, 1998): Denver Broncos 31 - Green Bay Packers 24
- Super Bowl XXXIII (Jan 31, 1999): Denver Broncos 34 - Atlanta Falcons 19
More recently, Tom Brady of the New England Patriots has also started five Super Bowls. His record in those games is 3-2.
- Super Bowl XXXVI (Feb 3, 2002): NE Patriots 20 - St Louis Rams 17
- Super Bowl XXXVIII (Feb 1, 2004): NE Patriots 32 - Carolina Panthers 29
