    IX. The Patriots have 20 players with Super Bowl experience on their current roster; the Giants have three.

    From: XLII fun facts about Superbowl XLII

    I think he means Tom Brady + Tedy Bruschi + Mike Vrabel = 9 rings. Like, if all players put every SB ring they own into a box, how many rings would be in the box?

    I'd guess over 40, but I'm not sure.

    Actually, he wants the coaching staff, too--i.e., Belichick's 5, Captain Caveman's (Mike Woicik's) 6, Dante's 3, etc. (If you try to add the employees who have rings, good luck trying to figure it out. :p )

    Exactly,that was what I was thinking,
    Brady has three,BB five, etc...

    Nobody remarks about it.
    it has to be a crazy number.

    But significant to the game is the on field personnel,coaches/players.
    It is nice if the popcorn vendors get em too,but I suspect they have a
    less significant effect on the outcome.

    Unless they give TO the extra greasy type...

    1,000,000 rings.

    Dont forget Kraft, his employees, people that have served the stadium for years, his videographers;) , the field technicians.

    They all count too.

    I don't know how many rings Mr. Kraft, in his largesse, has given to the behind the scenes and management folks nor am I sure of how many the Coaches have (other than BB's five), but, defining "Rings" as "Super Bowl Winners Rings," there are 20 Patriots Players with SB Rings (including AT). By my count they have a total of 43 Rings among them.

    Edit: I see that ESPN says there are 21, not 20, Pats Players with Rings. I'll assume they did a better job of counting than I did, but the point remains the same.

    I count 21 players with a total of 49 rings.

    3 rings (10 players): Brady, Brown, Bruschi, Faulk, Izzo, Light, Neal, Paxton, Seymour, Vrabel
    2 rings (8 players): Colvin, Green, Harrison, Hochstein, Koppen, Samuel, Warren, Wilson
    1 ring (3 players): Gay, Watson, Wilfork

    EDIT: Eric Alexander played in 3 games for the Pats in 2004 then was put on IR during the playoffs. So perhaps he should count as getting a ring too if Watson did (IR in first week)... so maybe it's 22/50.

    My count for Coaches (only including rings with gameday field repsonsibilities, not scouting or film)

    Bill Belichick 5
    Don Davis 2 as player
    Ivan Fears 3
    Pepper Johnson 3 + 2 as player
    Josh McDaniels 2
    Dean Pees 1
    Dante Scarnecchia 3
    Brad Seely 3
    Mike Woicik 6

    total 9/30

    Nick Caserio probably has 2 as "pro personnel/gameday press box liason" but I don't think those really count. Mcdaniels was a film assistant in 2001, so he may well have an actual ring for that year.

    I know the webmaster got a ring in 2001. So Mr. Kraft seems be pretty generous with them, and I would assume every scout got one.

    Seau doesn't have a SB ring.
    Adalius Thomas probably has one (2000 Ravens he played in 4 games including the AFCCG) but was inactive for the SB, so he has no SB experience.

    So,for the men who will influence the effort on the field
    Minus Colvin plus Alexander and Thomas, 80...
    I came up short of that,but win an argument easily.
    Thanks
