Don't know if it's been on here, but I haven't seen it anywhere, and can't find it, but this was a pretty cool story from SI and the Super Bowl. We all know about Charles Woodson's halftime speech, but this is the first I've heard about his pregame speech:
It was a huge loss, not only because Capers had transformed Woodson from a Hall of Fame--caliber cover corner into a blitzing, run-support inside defender ("It's been refreshing for me," Woodson said in mid-January) but also because it's Woodson's voice that the Packers players hear. He was the last man to talk to the team before the Super Bowl, ditching a long-planned speech he'd written when Lloyd Carr, his coach at Michigan, texted him and said, "Remember, just win." That is what he told the Packers before the biggest game of their lives.Just win.
Pretty cool. The article and sidebars also cover his halftime breakdown telling the team "You know how much I want this", and all the changes to the defense Capers had to go through after Woodson and everyone went down.
