David Tyree – NY Giants (2007)
Thanks to one iconic play in not only NFL and Super Bowl history, but New York sports history in general, David Tyree may never have to buy another meal anytime he ever dines out in the Big Apple. But that doesn’t erase the fact that during the six seasons he played in the NFL (not counting the year he missed due to injury), Tyree never finished with more than 211 yards receiving in a single season.
During his five years in New York, Tyree caught a grand total of four touchdowns, and during his latter three years in New York, caught all of 28 passes (for less than 200 yards total). But he’ll forever be immortalized thanks to the “helmet catch” he made when the New York Giants upset the New England Patriots.
Jared Lorenzen — NY Giants (2007)
People like Jim Kelly and Dan Marino have to look at Jared Lorenzen — “the Pillsburgy Through-Boy” forever known for his girth — with a large sense of contempt. Lorenzen spent two years in the NFL, and literally accumulated a grand total of two carries for four yards; he didn’t throw a single pass at any point in his career, and during the entire course of the 2006 and 2007 seasons, he ran the ball a grand total of one time in each of those two years (both carries went for two yards).
If you count the playoffs, he had another carry for — guess what — two yards (again). So his entire NFL workload, in three years, was three carries for six yards. Yet, he still has a Super Bowl ring.
