    My ipad corrected a lot of my words here

    "I don't think wood is as big of a force on the field as he was earlier in his career. That being said, he's a great mental player of the game, and certainly one of the big emotional leaders on the team."
    That's what I meant to type....haha

    Often some of our injured players come back late in the season or in the post season and do show plenty of sings of rust. I recall even Mark Chmura looking awkward back in 98'.
    Woodson will definitely be a little off time but as the game goes on his knowledge and experience should start to take over. His hunger and his leadership are something that young guys like Burnett, Shields, Hayward, and House need in a monumental contest. And you can bet that Charles is not going to leave anything on the field. He will go all out as if it is the last game of his career. If there is one big play or one big turnover to make this is the one guy who has delivered over the past 7 years for us. I hope he baits Ponder and gets him for one or two.

    Yes, he'll make an impact. He'll be the only one on the field not afraid to tackle Peterson.

    Woodson will be a liability if he plays to much. He is already older. He has missed a lot of time with 0 starts. Hopefully we get a solid lead and he can get lots of reps.

    I don't care if Peterson runs for 200. The game will hinge on pressuring Ponder and capitalizing on his mistakes. Woodson is an important part of that.

    My opinion, yes it will positively impact the Packers defense. That said... he is not the same player he was just a year or two ago, but I think mixing him in there impacts the defense in a sense of calm. I also think he is a better player yet at this point over a MD Jennings who is often out of position and taking bad angles.

    If I am Capers and Perry.. I put Woodson in McMillian's place in the 3 safety package shifting McMillian deep... and allow him to play in tandem with Burnett in the base package. If Capers blitzes Woodson over Burnett, we make some of the tackles at the LOS that Burnett misses last week. Woodson might not make the solo tackle, but he holds him long enough for help. Burnett just simply whiffed a couple of times.

    He will be a help. He is a good tackler and when he blitzes he is usually effective. I am glad he will be back. He is a solid leader and our defense needs some leadership right now. They seemed to be picking up the pace in the last few games but against Minn the looked like they were taking a step backward. Third down is a huge problem.

    Cant cover wrs anymore!?!? Lol
    He is a physical DB as they come. He has always played that way homie... Even in Michigan.

    Maybe since he 'cant cover receivers anymore' he can cover their TE.... Since he looks to be their only receiving threat.

    Probably, but I think in his first game back, he should be a situational contributor.

    Woodson knows how to play ball even if he has lost a step. I bet we see him give up a big pass play, but also see him make a game-changing play, most likely a forced fumble. His leadership and tackling abilities will automatically be an upgrade over MD Jennings - we should see a difference.
