Green Bay Packers Players Frustrated With Super Bowl Team Photo: Green Bay Packers tight end Jermichael Finley and linebacker Nick Barnett are two very key players for the Super Bowl bound Green Bay Packers. But, for historians and football fans all around, after this season; if you take a look at a Packers team photo from Super Bowl XVL, Finley, Barnett and others will not be seen in these photos.

Oops, never mind.

Glad to see that this has been corrected. When a team wins a ring, it is pretty amazing the number of people who receive rings. I know a sound engineer that has a ring from the Sacramento Monarchs championship season. Presumably the NFL operates in a similar fashion and any practice squad guys, sales people, management and other regular employees are awarded a ring of sorts.

(Didn't the traded catcher(?) of the San Francisco Giants, who played for the Rangers against them in the World Series, get a ring for having played with the Giants during the regular season?)

If they would be awarded a ring and are still with the team they ought to be included in the photo.

Again, glad this was just an oversight.

Yes, Bengie Molina was getting a ring either way.
