    I think there was a streak of ~35 Super Bowls in a row with a former Buff playing... but it was broke a couple years ago?

    Couldn't have been that many years. Off the top of my head, we had Chad Brown, Alfred Williams and Cliff Branch. Then there was Mitch Berger. We also had a few on the Packers last year.

    Maybe there was like a 15 year streak in there somewhere between Cliff and Alferd? Either that, or we're talking about the pre-Super Bowl era.

    The strange thing is that I thought I remembered that stat about the long string of Super Bowls with Buffs on the team too. Maybe there is some twist in the years I didn't find anybody, guys on IR or something, but I'm not really feeling like digging for that...
