Defensive player of the year.

Owns a vineyard.

His one-handed INT against Sparty is on my wall about 10 feet away.

He donates millions to Mott.

Woodson is and will always be the best.

So the Packers are known for the legendary free-agency acquisition of Reggie White, and Woodson is looking more and more like he may fall right into the same category.

Also, Dom Capers deserves all the credit in the world. Two weeks ago, he lost two of the best players on his squad (Harris and Barnett), and the guys he has left are still playing lights-out football.

My mistake. Obviously I was too high on the victory to check my facts.

Also: what I said about Woodson aside, you want TT to go out and make good FA signings? Me too, but I think it's a pipe dream. The guy is a draft genius, I'll give him that, but I wish he'd rethink his policy on FA signings a little bit. We're perpetually the youngest team in the NFL, which isn't always a good thing.

I know. He likes to build through the draft and only goes out in FA once in a blue moon. Maybe he'll start going out and signing some FAs now because I had a heart attack when TT drafted the area of biggest need, Raji and traded one of his 3809659 2nd day picks to move up and grab Matthews. Man, TT sure does love his 2nd day picks........

I was really worried that Raji would turn out to be a bust like Justin Harrell, seeing as he didn't really show up much in the first few games. But now I like what I see. And Clay Matthews is something else.

Speaking of players I have been impressed with this season, I didn't see Chillar at all tonight. I know he was probable, but I thought he would play more.

Also, on a final note, as much as I like Raji, watching his brother kill U-M at basketball last week was really no fun at all.

flew in from left field. Did not see TT drafting him that high. I REALLY liked Raji and was praying that TT didn't piss away the draft by using his best player available strategy and taking Crabtree. And I agree on Matthews, he's done everything you can expect of a rookie. Jones looked decent tonight at OLB, Chillars kind of a one trick pony (Covering backs/TEs).

he's still nursing a hand injury...almost 100% and has mainly been playing special teams due to the solid all around play of Jones

just to repeat everyone else's sentiments, if Woodson doesn't receieve defensive player of the year, it's a tragedy....

Michigan fans are positively spoiled with the sheer number of fantastic former players we've been able to continue to follow in the NFL. C-Woods has always been at the top of that list for me.

Crossing my fingers for Hart to catch a break soon, too.

Last night Jon Gruden (who coached Woodson in Oakland) said that Woodson has a photographic memory. Now, this could have been announcer hyperbole, but if it's true, how awesome is that? And how is it that yesterday was the first time I ever heard that fact about Mr. Woodson?

I miss having a player on our team that no matter who we played, I knew we had the best player on the field. I miss having that one guy who can dominate a game by himself. Charles come back, you can blame it all on me
