Georgia Bulldogs Fan Guide to the NFL Playoffs


If you are a Georgia Bulldogs fan, who should you pull for in the NFL Playoffs now?

More from Georgia Bulldogs News

Growing up as an avid Georgia fan I learned very early on that having an NFL team was just not possible. There was no way I could cheer for a player for four years and just give up on that player after they graduate.

I developed a system of deciding who I would cheer for in every NFL game at a young age, and I have continued with that system since then. Whatever team playing has the most Dawgs active on roster is who I cheer for. Overall this tends to make me a Bengals fan, but I do not limit my cheering to just one team.

This past weekend was a major blow to Dawg fans, as both the Bengals and Lions were eliminated from the playoffs. Let’s take a look at the remaining teams.

Baltimore Ravens – 2 Dawgs. Marlon Brown and DeAngelo Tyson are currently active on Baltimore’s roster.


New England Patriots – No Dawgs. No cheering here ladies and gentlemen.

This match up we cheer for Baltimore.

Carolina Panthers – Three Dawgs. Carolina’s defense is made up of all kinds of Dawg talent. Thomas Davis, Charles Johnson, and Fernando Velasco are a huge reason the Panthers are in the playoffs this year. Unfortunately, the presence of Cam Newton makes this team very hard to cheer for.


Seattle Seahawks – One Dawg. Demarcus Dobbs plays for the Seahawks, but as he has not really seen playing time and just got a ring last year I will not put much effort into cheering for them.

This is hard as Cam Newton negates at least 2 Dawgs on roster with how much dislike I have for him. With that said we still must cheer for Carolina here. Too many Dawgs to not cheer for them.

Dallas Cowboys – No Dawgs  vs.  Green Bay Packers – No Dawgs

With no Dawgs in this fight we must cheer against Dallas here. They took out our beloved Stafford, and at least Green Bay uses the same super G.

Indianapolis Colts – No Dawgs  vs.  Denver Broncos – No Dawgs

Again we have no Dawg in this fight so pick your evil. I will say this will still be a great game to watch. My personal opinion is cheer for the Colts because do we really want to have to hear Tennessee fans talk about Manning anymore than they already do?

So that would leave us with two teams — Carolina and Baltimore — who are evenly stacked in terms of Bulldog fan loyalty and disdain, and the Cam Newton Factor is just too much to overcome.

In the end (and I never thought I would say this) Go Ravens? Yes, it would seem that Dawg fans would do best to pull for the Baltimore Ravens to win the Super Bowl.

Now excuse me…I need to go vomit.
