RB Thurman Thomas, Buffalo Bills:
Former Bills star Thomas is one of the most heart-wrenching instances where a great football player never won the Super Bowl. It wasn’t for lack of trying, as his Buffalo Bills made four straight Super Bowls in the 1990s. Unfortunately, they lost all four.
He’ll go down as a Hall of Famer, yet you can’t help but imagine that his career would have been so much more fulfilling and respected had Buffalo won only one of those four Super Bowl defeats. You need only look at the fact that Thomas set some truly great NFL playoff records to see how good he was. He had the playoff touchdowns with 21 and the most career points with 126, and even scored a touchdown in nine straight playoff games – another record.
