Statistically Speaking - Super Bowl Edition
Jan. 29, 2014
by Dave McMahon
So for all you passionate fans, here are some more notes, nuggets and tidbits of information all things Georgia Bulldogs, statistically speaking of course. For the most complete information on a specific upcoming game please check out the individual sport and game you are looking for on www.georgiadogs.com and for even more statistical insights you can follow me on twitter @dave_mc_stats.
Maybe one of these three players can win the Pete Rozelle Trophy or the Super Bowl MVP. If one of them does, they would be the fourth Bulldog to do so. Georgia is the only school with three different players to win the award. Here are the four colleges or universities to have won three total.
Georgia - Jake Scott (Super Bowl VII) Terrell Davis (Super Bowl XXXII) Hines Ward (Super Bowl XL)
Alabama - Bart Starr (Super Bowls I and II) Joe Namath (Super Bowl III)
Michigan - Tom Brady (Super Bowls XXXVI and XXXVIII) Desmond Howard (Super Bowl XXXI)
Notre Dame - Joe Montana (Super Bowl XVI, XIX, XXIV)
Here are some of the achievements by Georgia Bulldogs in Super Bowls (these are not records unless noted.)

Here are more stats on the three Georgia participants in this game starting with the player who finished seventh in the Heisman Trophy in 1998. He did get six first place votes though. Champ Bailey was injured throughout the 2013 season. This was his only NFL season where he did not record an interception. He does have 52 in his career, which is tied for 26th on the all-time list. The 52 is just one behind Deion Sanders and two behind Darrell Green, who were both teammates of Bailey's with the Washington Redskins. The 52 is also the most by a former Georgia Bulldog. Here is the top five list.
For a single season, Champ is also the leader.
He has never played at Met Life Stadium, but at the old Giants Stadium he had two career interceptions. One interception was against Kerry Collins and the other against Eli Manning.
Knowshon Moreno would love to be the second Georgia Bulldog running back to win the Super Bowl as a Denver Bronco running back. Terrell Davis won Super Bowl MVP for his performance in Super Bowl XXXII. Moreno had a career-high 1,038 rushing yards this past season and that total gives him 3,468 in his career. That total is already seventh on the NFL career rush yard list by a former Bulldog. Here is that list.
He was tied for 4th in the NFL in rushing touchdowns this season with 10. That is also tied for 6th for the most touchdown rushes in a season by a former Georgia Bulldog.
I guess if you have an offense with Peyton Manning they are going to throw a lot. Moreno had a career-high 60 receptions in 2013. This season he was 6th in the NFL with the most receptions by a running back. Here are the top six in that category.
Chris Clemons has played in the NFL for nine seasons including the last four with the Seahawks. He had 4 ½ sacks this season, but the previous three he had more than ten in each season. If you just count the last four seasons, he is tied for 12th for the most sacks in the NFL in that time period.
He has 58 sacks in his career. Since 1982 (that's as far as my sack category goes) that mark is the 2nd most in a career by a former Georgia Bulldog. Here are the top five.
If you look at a list of most sacks in a NFL season by a former Georgia Bulldog, you will see Chris Clemons mentioned a lot near the top. Ironically the number one spot is held by his Uncle Charlie.
