This sunday LaMarr Woodley, Steve Breaston, Gabe Watson, and Alan Branch will join the long and impressive list of former Wolverines that have played for the modern NFL World Championship.
The first Michigan player to play in the Super Bowl was the Packers John Rowser (Super Bowl II). We have had representation in 34 of the 43 games. Two players of our guys have walked away with the MVP trophy (Desmond Howard with the Packers in SB XXXI and Tom Brady with the Patriots in SB XXXVI and SB XXXVIII). The last time a Super Bowl was played without a Michigan player involved was SB XXXII when John Elway's Denver Broncos beat the Green Bay Packers in San Diego. Personally I am cheering for Breaston and the Cardinals on Sunday -- but I will be OK with Larry Foote (his second) and LaMarr getting a ring.
