17 years in a row now The Mighty Georgia Bulldogs have been represented in the Super Bowl. And finally last year we played-for the national championship. LII

2001 I looked at the rosters of the Baltimore Ravens and New York Giants and I don’t see a Georgia Bulldog on those rosters for that Super Bowl now 18 years ago in 2001. But we have every year since and here every Georgia Bulldog representing us in a Super Bowl since Super Bowls started are listed below including the last 17 years in a row now of UGA Bulldogs represented in the Super Bowl which is the Best in The SEC.

  14. 2015 Demarcus Dobbs Defensive End Seattle Seahawks
  15. 2016 Thomas Davis Linebacker Carolina Panthers and Charles Johnson Defensive End Carolina Panthers
  16. 2017 Super Bowl : Chris Mayes NT (IR) on the Injured Reserve list for the Atlanta Falcons in his rookie season not playing after playing so well for Georgia 2013 2014 and 2015 seasons here out of Spalding High Griffin.  David Andrews Started and played every play for the New England Patriots all season long as their Starting Center except for 4 plays. And he started 11 of 14 games his rookie season the season before for New England.  Malcolm Mitchell Started 6 of 14 games as WR for the New England Patriots his rookie season 2017 with 401 receiving yards with 4 touchdowns on 32 catches and had a catch in the win over the Steelers to send the New England Patriots to play Atlanta in Houston in the Super Bowl. Malcolm Mitchell injured his knee before Super Bowl 2017.
  17. New England Patriots Center David Andrews a team captain while  Wide receiver Malcolm Mitchell remained on injured reserve starting September 7 Preseason Game knee injury against Texans. The 2nd year Pro Malcolm Mitchell had zero snaps 2017-2018 season from the Preseason Game injury to his knee.  What a shame after what Malcolm Mitchell did to the Falcons last year in the Super Bowl with his 6 catches for 70 yards all after the Falcons had a 28-3 lead and this after he Started 6 games last year.   Philadelphia Eagles Linebacker Dannell Ellerbe Starter getting the bulk of the snaps at middle linebacker has an injured hamstring which prevented him from playing against the Vikings.  Dannell Ellerbe would be questionable then to play in the Super Bowl so it is down to David Andrews if Malcolm Mitchell too remains on injured reserve all season long from his preseason game knee injury.

 

17 years in a row The Georgia Bulldogs have had a representative in Super Bowls consecutively.

 

Georgia Bulldogs in the Super Bowl before this run of 17 years in a row :

 

1967 Zeke Bratkowski QB Green Bay Packers beat Kansas City.

1969 Jimmy Orr WR Baltimore Colts  New York Jets beat the Colts 16-7. Orr had  three catches for 42 yards in the gamet is known for being wide-open in the end zone on a flea-flicker only to have Earl Morrall throw to fullback Jerry Hill resulting in an interception by Jets’ safety Jim Hudson.

1971 Jimmy Orr WR Baltimore Colts Baltimore Colts beat the Dallas Cowboys 16-13.

1972 Jake Scott Safety and  Bill Stanfill Defensive End Miami Dolphins both Miami Dolphins.  Dallas Cowboys beat the Dolphins 24-3.  Scott played with a broken left hand and broke his right wrist in the game.

1973 Jake Scott Safety Miami Dolphins and Bill Stanfill Defensive End Miami Dolphins and Len Hauss Center Washington Redskins.  Dolphins beat the Redskins 14-7.  Jake Scott Super Bowl MVP had two interceptions he returned for 63 return yards one a 55-yard return from the end zone in the 4th quarter to win the Super Bowl.  Jake Scott is my friend and should be in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.  Jake Scott is QUITE the nice guy.  I know.

1974 Jake Scott Safety Miami Dolphins and Bill Stanfill Defensive End Miami Dolphins and Fran Tarkenton Quarterback Minnesota Vikings.  Dolphins beat the Vikings 24-7.  Jake Scott recovered two fumbles in the game and had 45 punt return yards.

1975 Dick Conn who led The Mighty Georgia Bulldogs in Interception 1972 with five (5) Defensive Back Pittsburgh Steelers and Bobby Walden Punter Pittsburgh Steelers and Fran Tarkenton Quarterback Minnesota Vikings.  Pittsburg Steelers 16 Minnesota Vikings 6.

1976 Bobby Walden Punter Pittsburgh Steelers Pittsburgh Steelers 21 Dallas Cowboys 16.

1977 Fran Tarkenton Quarterback Minnesota Vikings. Oakland Raiders 32 Minnesota Vikings 14.

1978 Bucky Dilts Punter Denver Broncos.  Dallas Cowboys 27 Denver Broncos 10.

1982 Mike Moonpie Wilson Offensive Tackle Cincinnati Bengals and Guy McIntyre Offensive Lineman San Francisco 49ers who won 26-21 over Cincinnati Bengals.

1985 Guy McIntyre Offensive Lineman San Francisco 49ers who won 38-16 over Miami Dolphins.

1986 Kevin Butler Place Kicker Chicago Bears who won 46-10 over New England Patriots who were like the Falcons back then.

1987 Freddie Gilbert Defensive End Denver Broncos and Winford Hood Offensive Lineman Denver Broncos and Clarence Kay Tight End Denver Broncos.  Remember all these guys ?  I sure do.  I was a huge fan of the NFL BEFORE the Super Bowls.

NFC NFL 26 Super Bowl Wins AFC AFL 25 Super Bowl Wins.  Before these Super Bowls, the NFL won EVERY YEAR.  It was called the NFL Championship Game.  Charley Trippi Won the MVP on the NFL Championship Game.

In fact the first several were NOT even called the Super Bowl of the ones which are considered Super Bowls.

The 2 leagues merged in 1970 when I had been attending Georgia Bulldogs’ Football games at Sanford for 14 years that season already on my Dad’s Seasons’ Tickets and then later-on on my own Seasons’ Tickets along with my Dad having his too.

Now the NFL turns its collective backs on the NFL prior to the Super Bowl like it didn’t even exist.  Sure it did.  It was huge.  It still is but College Football has lots more following and more attendance.

1988 Winford Hood Offensive Lineman and Daryll Jones Defensive Back and Clarence Kay Tight End ALL 3 of the Denver Broncos.  Washington Redskins won 42-10 over Denver Broncos.

1989 Guy McIntyre Offensive Lineman San Francisco 49ers.

1991 Rodney Hampton Running Back New York Giants.

1992 Terry Hoage Safety Washington Redskins

1995 Shannon Mitchell (UGA 1990-1993 with Eric Zeier Garrison Hearst Mack Strong Terrell Davis) Tight End San Diego Chargers

1996 Ray Donaldson 58 East Rome High 1980 2nd Round NFL Draft Pick National Champion Georgia Bulldogs Consensus UGA All-America 17 years NFL 6 Pro Bowls Super Bowl Champ Center Dallas Cowboys and Andre Hastings Wide Receiver Pittsburgh Steelers

1997 Hason Graham Wide Receiver New England Patriots

1998 Terrell Davis Running Back Denver Broncos and Jermaine Smith Defensive Tackle Green Bay Packers

1999 Terrell Davis Running Back Denver Broncos

2000 Larry Brown Tight End Tennessee Titans and Charlie Clemons Linebacker St. Louis Rams

2001 I looked at the rosters Baltimore Ravens and New York Giants and I don’t remember one.

 

 

42 Bulldogs have lifted NFL Championship Game Trophy including Terrell Davis twice.

 

17 consecutive season The Georgia Bulldogs have played in the Super Bowl which is the longest streak in The SEC.

 

The ONLY college to have 4 different players Win the MVP of the NFL’s Championship Game Hines Ward, Terrell Davis, Charley Trippi and Jake Scott the ONLY indeed The Mighty Georgia Bulldogs are quite the story in the NFL and this latest recruiting class we just signed 2017 will be the Greatest of them All.

 

 

 

 

I watched Terrell Davis from our seasons’ tickets so I was rooting for Terrell Davis and for us thereby.

 

Hines Ward NEXT elected into the Pro Football Hall of Fame and that will be 4 Bulldogs in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

 

1 win in 171 combined seasons of the Falcons Braves Hawks and Flames/Thrashers.

 

38 years for us with no national championship now.  2017-2018 season was a success however.  You want a definition of what is a success ? 2017.  You want some perspective on the success of The Mighty Georgia Bulldogs 2017-2018 season ?  The Atlanta Falcons did NOT have success 2017-2018 season by direct stark contrast.   Got it ?

 

During the latest 17 years 44 Georgia Bulldogs have represented us in the Super Bowl.  Of the 44 Georgia Bulldogs in the latest 17 consecutive Super Bowls 32 different Georgia Bulldogs have represented us in the Super Bowl.

 

But I looked them all up for you. I listed them by name by year.  I did all this research by myself.  Do you remember who told you every single day of calendar year 2017 who would win The SEC Championship – that it would be I guaranteed The Mighty Georgia Bulldogs.  You remember that ?
