2024 Super Bowl: 13 Chiefs and 49ers with a shot at Hall of Fame, ranked by tiers with three locks at the top

Super Bowls can define careers. Perhaps no one knows that better than former Jets quarterback Joe Namath. While he was a ahead of his time as far as passing is concerned, Namath probably wouldn’t be in the Hall of Fame if not for Super Bowl III and his role in the greatest upset in the history of pro football. 

Namath’s pregame guarantee of a Jets upset — and he and his teammates backing it up with a win — only added to his legend and undoubtedly contributed to his gold jacket and bronze bust in Canton, Ohio. He is one of several players whose place in the Hall of Fame can largely be attributed to their performances in Super Bowls. 

Several players will look to make a similar impact in Super Bowl LVIII, which will be broadcast on CBS and Nickelodeon and you can stream it on Paramount+ (here’s how to watch). While a few players who will play on Sunday are already locks, several more can bolster their future case for Canton by putting together a strong performance on sports’ biggest stage. Winning the game matters, too, which is something every member of the Kansas City Chiefs and San Francisco 49ers will try to do when the ball is kicked off from Las Vegas. 

Here’s a look at several significant players on both teams and their current Hall of Fame status, in my humble opinion.
