Just in case you think NFL players are only there for the payday, consider what they actually get paid for the playoffs:

Wild-card games (division winners): $20,000.
Wild-card games (fifth- and sixth-seeded teams): $18,000.
Divisional games: $20,000.
Conference championship games: $37,500.
Super Bowl winners: $78,000.
Super Bowl losers: $40,000

That may seem like a lot of money, but when you consider the cut the government and their agents get, it's really not.

If the Steelers win the Super Bowl, the players will have pocketed an extra $135,500, of which they'll probably actually get between $60 to $70 thousand per player.

It's a nice chunk of change, but when you consider the risk involved – ask Willis McGahee – it's not all that great.

This is much more about winning a championship to these guys than anything.

Between $60 to $70 thousand, and plus SB Trophy is not too bad is it? :wink02:

Which is why you have some vets that don't even want to make the playoffs.


Sad thing is, in my opinion, your CONTRACT INHERENTLY is about WINNING THE SB.

So all that money isn't a pay-day, it is BONUS money.

Not to mention, if you're a role player on the Super Bowl winning team, or even the losing team, your earning power for your next contract basically doubles. (see Randle El, Chris Hope, Larry Brown, Desmond Howard, etc.)

Even if you're a superstar it's probably worth a couple million. SO the extra money from the league is really just a drop in the bucket.

That's ridiculous, 30 thousand in 4 weeks isn't "that good" considering health risks? I'd do it any day! Doesn't matter what the job is.
