Considering Woodson had fallen off as a CB and is now currently still playing safety I'd say it made plenty of sense. It's not like we were lacking at the slot CB in 2012 with Hayward.


I was talking about 2011, after Collins was declared out for the season, with Woodson coming off the broken collar bone, and Williams out with a bum shoulder...

We all can see it, so WHY didn't Thompson make it happen? Quality Safeties may not be a dime a dozen, but they are out there - even as free agents. There are several who would fit very well this year; I can't really recall who was available as a quality cover Safety last off-season or the year before, but undoubtedly there were some. And money/cap problems can always be overcome.

And while Safety may be the most immediate and obvious problem, it certainly isn't the only one that has been neglected and exposed by Rodgers getting hurt this year.

With Rodgers healthy, we simply are NOT that far away from having a super team. It's a damn shame not to close the deal while we still have the world's greatest QB.

I don't get it then Woodson still played CB in 2011 and then re broke his collarbone in 2012 while playing S.

They tried him at S in the Corner Okie for a base D and it didn't work in 2011 after Collins went down, platooning with Peprah when they switched to nickel.

And, it didn't work in 2012 either, when they saw Charlie Peprah wasn't the answer…

All I know is 3 years later we still don't have anyone we can really trust at either FS or SS.

There were about 2 and they would have run us about 8mil. Unless we went the Ed Reed route like Houston for 5 mil for 5 weeks.

I was kind of upset we didn't wait off on doing Rodgers and/or Matthews contracts last year and making a full scale push before putting that cap restrictions on the team.

but like there is no guarantee in winning a SB, there is no guarantee that players that are good on one team will be good on the Packers.

If we had used this same thinking in the past, we would have brought in a FA to replace both Sharper and Collins before they become the safeties they ended up being. Neither were much to brag about their first 3 years.
