Just crossed on the wires... Nice to see him get the credit for a solid season.
Peppers at 10, which seems low.
He had one hell of a season..congrats to you C-Wood
Woodson is the first CB to win this award this Deon Sanders. Pretty damn impressive.
Woodson wins a lot of awards that are rare to his position/side of the ball.
what awards could you be referring to?
I was just checking out NFL.com and didn't see a story on it. Any links to a reliable source?
You left out an important part of the article.
"The award was not without controversy, however, as Tennessee fans were left complaining that Peyton Manning was obviously more deserving, despite playing no defense whatsoever."
It's too bad that Green Bay's entire defense bombed on Sunday. I was kind of rooting for the Cardinals to win because they have more Wolverines on their roster, but I wanted Woodson to have a good game. Unfortunately, he was just mediocre.
Woodson didn't play great on Sunday, but on those two Fitz TDs, Fitz got away with blatant pushoffs on Woodson prior to catching the ball. He got punked by the refs.
When he wasn't a victim of Fitz's PI, he made some good pass breakups, especially that amazing leap
He also got called for a silly pass interference where he shouldn't have even bothered touching the receiver.
What is this "defense" to which you refer? All I remember is watching an Arena Football League game on an NFL-sized field.
I guess Woodson knew what he was doing when he repportedly chose to play defense out of high school because so that he could eventually have a longer NFL career. I got the impression that last few years that the national media had lost respect for him, percieving him as having "lost a step," etc. Apparently, the media has regained their respect for Woodson.
Woodson is becoming the Ric Flair of football. Woooooo!
is good for a +1 in my book...every time.
He deserves it. And not just because he went to Michigan, although that has something to do with it as well. Congrats to him. Well earned.
...And the $2 million donated to Mott Children's Hospital too!
I would say that Woodson was the only player on the packers D who did much of anything, forced the fumble on the cards only turnover and had a nice pass deflection on another 3rd down, the only two stops Pack had all day. Fell down and got knocked down (offensive PI missed on that one) the only two times he was beat.
Congrats to Charles Woodson, who I briefly knew in college. The guy is an honestly good man, and deserves all the kudos he gets.
That the best players on each side of the ball are still Peyton Manning and Charles Woodson. I would love to see Peyton and Woodson go into the HOF together someday. Their Careers seem to be intertwined in some pretty cool ways.
Great season by a great Michigan Man. Good to see he can still play at such a high level after 12 seasons. I still remember that Rose Bowl like it was yesterday...
charles, time to retire when you are on the top of your game. (be just like barry s.) come home to the big house and coach us up some db's!!
Is putting together one hell of a career...
He's definitely a Hall of Famer.
I have never seen a cornerback be as physically productive (sacks, pressures, pass defenses, forced fumbles, fumble recoveries, tackles, interceptions) as Woodson was this year.
Most of the time great cornerbacks simply take away half the field and you don't hear much from them.
Chuck not only filled up the stat sheets but he was the vocal leader of the GB secondary and was in charge of making sure everyone had the right assignments, etc.
I'll say it again, I've never seen a cornerback put together a more productive season than Chuck did this year.
...Last year he was almost as domminant, but GB was 6-10 and woodson didn't get noticed. I just can't believe this streak he is having.
Well deserved award.
the voters of these awards got it right. Congrats Charles.
The most impressive part of him winning the award is the fact that he made all those great plays and covered all those great receivers with a heavy statue that looks like a person imitating Desmond Howard in his back pocket. It's gotta be hard lugging that around when you are back-pedaling.
Congrats to a great player! Easily is and always will be my favorite to wear the winged helmet. I am 2 years younger than him and played baseball with a kid in college who was on his high school team, a sophomore in woodson's senior year. he showed us their team highlight tape...this was before youtube or rivals or scout, so i had never seen highlights (or in person if memory serves) a HS senior blue-chip prospect. it literally was like watching one of us play against 5 year olds right now, just pure and utter domination. i saw the tape a year after woodson's heisman season, so he already had firmly planted himself in my mind as the greatest thing of all time.
Justin Turner, I hope you're paying attention and understand what wearing the #2 jersey in that secondary means.
That 22 voters didn't choose Charles. I really didn't think anyone could question that he should have been the winner this year.
Well done Charles. I love watching you play now as much as when you were at UM. Keep it up!
Without a doubt one of the best if not the best cornerbacks in the history of both professional and college football. Congratulations Woodson you definitely have earned it!
I'm sure all the New York AP guys voted for Revis.
