Lately I've been wondering who has the most Super Bowl appearances for a couple of reasons: 1) The previous Tom Brady talk up until last weekend--could've set the record for most appearances AS A QB (he's tied at 5 with Elway), and 2) I have an acquaintance who has been in a lot--Pete Metzelaars-- and I was curious if anyone had been a part of more Super Bowls. My question pertains to total SB appearances, i.e., as a player and/or a coach. Pete has been in 6 SBs, 4 as a player with the Bills, and two as a coach with the Colts. The only players who have been in 6 SBs are Don Beebe, 4 with the Bills, 2 with the Packers, and Mike Lodish, 4 with the Bills, 2 with the Broncos. The only other person I can find with as many as 6 appearances is Don Shula. He had 1 with the Baltimore Colts and 5 with the Dolphins, all as a coach. Shula won the '64 NFL Championship but that was two years before the the first Super Bowl, so it is retroactively more like a conference championship and still not an SB at any rate.
The second part and Auburn angle on this question is which former AU player has the most SB appearances? I may be missing a lot somewhere in this, but the most I can think of for any former Auburn player is 2 SBs. Kevin Greene had one with the Steelers as a player and one with the Packers as a coach. Maybe there is someone from the sixties or seventies that was in more but before my time.

You should prepare yourself to live with the consequences of your decisions, whatever they may be.
I would think Steve Wallace had more than two with 49ers.
I think Dan Reeves has the most total SB appearances at 8 or 9; he was in the SB 4 or 5 times as a player and asst coach with Dallas, and 4 times as a head coach (3 w/Denver and 1 w/Atlanta). I think LB Charles Haley has the most SB victories with five. As for AU players, I think OL Steve Wallace won 3 rings with SF. Tommie Agee won at least 2 SB rings with Dallas. I don't know how much of a claim we have on him since he didn't finish his college career at AU, but I think Brandon Jacobs won 2 rings with the Giants. I'm sure there are numerous other AU alums with rings, these are just the ones I remembered off the top of my head.
And because Auburn men and women believe in these things, I believe in Auburn and love it.

Not on this topic. I couldn't find any one source with definitive answers. What I came up with was piece meal, that's why I brought it up here.
Correct about Wallace with three rings. A little before my days of keeping up closely with the NFL, and most lineman fly under the radar. So Wallace has the most we can think of so far...
Heath Evans had a couple apperences with New England and 1 with New Orleans.
