Dude put in work for us to get to this point and wasn't rewarded with a ring. Maybe Todd Heap too. Them dudes kept us afloat through the middle to the end of the last decade on offense.

Maybe a consolation plaque or something for all of the key people who retired between 2008 and 2012.

Maybe we should also send a ring to Kelly Gregg, Ben Grubbs, Jarrett Johnson, Corey Redding and Chris Carr too... after all they did play with us up until a few years ago...

LOL what a joke! The Super Bowl ring goes to the players who won the Super Bowl. Not to people who have played for a team in the last few years but never even made it one time.

^ What he said.

Mase showed love by coming back and retiring so I'm guessing he had an all-access pass to the game.

No, for a couple of reasons.

1 - I'm not actually sure if the NFL would allow it.

2 - It would set a VERY dangerous precedent. Only guys ON the team can get a ring, otherwise the whole process could be completely ruined.

If you weren't part of the run then you don't get the spoils.

It's to the teams discretion who they give rings to.
Lets just hope it looks better then the last one!

No, you have to be with the team to get a ring. Just how I feel. I wish we could have won something with Mase, and Todd, and Grubbs, but we didn't. That's why Neal Dahlen has 7 rings and Dan Marino has 0 - just looked him up, but Dahlen has the most rings of any player/coach/personnell - he was in the 49ers front office for 5 and in the Broncos for 2. Did he do much to earn them, probably not, but he was there.

Those championship rings are not cheap. Besides, If champion rings are given to people who aren't members of the championship team, it only cheapens the integrity of the what ring represents and the work of the players, coaches, and front office of the organization.

The Colts 07' have already done this before, the Colts gave Edgerrin James ( The U! ) a Superbowl Ring when they beat Chicago that year. James was still playing with the Cardinals.
That's at the owners discretion.

The real question: would Mason want a ring for a Super Bowl win in which he did not contribute? I think the answer is "no" and rightfully so. I wouldn't want it. I would want to have earned it.

I think Mason's contributions those years he was here contributed greatly to the confidence and development of a certain young QB.

I won't say we should offer Mason a ring but given he showed us the love and retired a Raven, I wouldn't be upset if they did offer him one.

Joe flacco picked up a fumbled ball off the ground like he just dropped the newspaper on the sidewalk by accident and flung it across the street square into the neighbor's open mailbox while being attacked by pit bulls on steroids - a Panther's fan

I think Mason's impact was greater on Smith than Flacco, personally. I think Torrey Smith's development had a lot to do with character, Mason & Boldin. I understand your point. I won't be mad if the FO gives Mason, Heap, Gregg, JJ, or even Redding a ring. Their leadership was a big part of us reaching this point. I won't campaign for them to get one. Cam deserves one more than them imo.

This. Mason was a warrior for us and deserving. Too bad it didn't happen while he was still here.
