Superbowl rosters

I was taking a look at both rosters, and I noted that 5 former Miami players appear on Chicago's roster: Wale Ogunleye, Brendon Ayanbadejo, Desmond Clark, John St. Clair, and Brian Griese.  Of them Ayanbadejo and Ogunleye have made the most impact this season.
The Colts have no former Phins on their team.  That is, unless you include Jake Scott, their offensive tackle, who shares a name (and nothing more) with the guy who no longer wants to be associated with football.
....and in the stat I've been watching every year, there are no players from Texas' national championship team last year on either roster.  So, still no player has *ever* started on a team that won a national championship and then gone on to start on a superbowl winning team the following year.  Lofa Tatupu came awfully close last year, but he didn't garner the disctinction, either.  Maybe next year, Chris Leak will be starting for the Phins in the superbowl...
