Five Backup Quarterbacks Who Did the Least To Earn Rings since 1990

It's been said a lot, especially in this tough economic time.

"The more you work, the less you get paid, while the less you work, the more you make."

Coming from a news photographer background, this is often true. While under-paid reporters, photographers, and production people are busy running and gunning, the six-figure anchor is off quaffing his or her hair and putting on his or her makeup.

I am sure there are examples of this everywhere. There is a CEO sitting on his butt making millions, who has no idea how his company works. This was proven by that CBS show Undercover Boss a few months ago.

Even in sports, there are people who do very little. But they still get that championship ring, although they don't make as much—and I am sure they are living on food stamps.

So, I got to thinking about backup quarterbacks the last 20 years who have hardly done anything, yet they still have a ring or two.

Many of them were—or still are—career backups, perfectly carrying a clipboard and earning a paycheck to warm up each week.

Many of them are also guys who would never see the light of day, because they played behind a Hall of Famer.

Can you guess who they are?
