Think there are some defensive backs placing wagers (the legal ones, of course) on Super Bowl XLIII?
Two cornerbacks have very good reasons to pay attention on Feb. 1. D'Antoine Hood and Walt McFadden both have family to cheer for.
Hood's cousin, Roderick Hood, is a starting cornerback for the Arizona Cardinals. McFadden's older brother, Bryant McFadden, is a starting cornerback for the Pittsburgh Steelers.
There are two other Auburn connections to the Super Bowl. Cardinals linebacker Karlos Dansby starts, as did Steelers offensive lineman Kendall Simmons, who is now on injured reserve with torn Achilles.
