Do the Packers already have their SB rings?

    I was looking at pictures of some of the Packers visting the troops in the middle east and came accross this pic of two guys wearing what appears to be SB rings.

    I thought they have a ring ceremony and present them before the first game of the season. I'm probably wrong on that though.

    From what I know, the rings take a long time to make. The Saints didn't get theirs until August. So I doubt those are the rings, but I could be wrong.

    I also found this ring design on a T-shirt being sold in the NFL Shop:

    I think it may just be a default design they made just for the shirt, however.

    no. they usually get them right before the first game, which will be that Thursday Night Game against the Bears (which would be awesome to get them in front of the Bears) or the Saints.

    My bet - is that they were provided by Jostens or competitors as possible designs. Demos or props if you will. Usually the players/coaches have a say in the design. Maybe the company is promoting the most expensive designs to the players?

    Look like SB rings to me. The fact that they are featured in the picture, leads me to believe they are SB rings.

    I heard from in one of the interviews that M.M. had his Packers fitted for the SB rings even before the SB started. So it's possible those rings were ready to be made the moment they won it. They may have them now, but I would think there would be an official presentation ceremony complete with media blitz. The ceremony may take place before the first game but I would think the players may get those rings before that. I dunno, just guessing here....

    It wouldn't need to be asked if one takes a really good look at pics number 3 and 4.
    You can clearly see that the rings are on those flying the airplane and not Packers players.

    Unless the Packers have to put on military uniforms and then have to fly themselves to the overseas troops.

    And as LTF pointed out....

    I was hoping our rings look something like the 49ers when they won their 4th, but come to think about it, something like this would be cool


    [​IMG]

    We could have the G logo and then our 4 trophies in the background, I think it would look awesome, but most the time the rings always look better than you want them to

    The one on the left looks like it could be from the Steelers in 05. Wasn't Kuhn on the Steelers practice squad back then? Which I believe would earn him a ring.

    yes, but Kuhn didn't go

    Jarrett Bush, Daryn Colledge, Derrick Martin, Nick McDonald, Frank Zombo and former player William Henderson, Tom Bakken, Pepper Burrus where the guys that went...could be Henderson's I suppose..
