Jarret Bush will be The Packers DPOY!!!!!!!
LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL
Lord help us!!!

Packers getting real young real fast in the defensive backfield.

Hopefully they are just to young to realize they're not suppose to be able to do the job.

Next Man Up.


Now I'm scared. If we are going to rely on Bush for anything in the defensive backfield. we are in real trouble, imo.

Bring in the new guy.

Bush couldn't cover a drunk fisherman fallin' out of the boat if Jarrett was the friggin' ocean.


I still feel good. Maybe no more 3 man rush and other such silliness.

Same shoulder?


Same collarbone as the one Woodson broke in the Super Bowl.

Just once can we catch a fucking break with the health of our players? One game without significant injuries?

Does this mean we won't be getting all those defensive holding calls for 5 yards and a first down? I personally like when our young players get to cut their teeth. Fortunately, our offense is starting to play lights out again, so lets not get too emotional over our 36 year old slow, but smart safety having to sit out six weeks.

Charles Woodson on the sideline will be able to help the plethora of young defensive backs. This is a blessing in disguise, even though he's one of two favorite Packers.

Woodson will instruct the kids how to do things and then six weeks will expire and he'll say, ughh, here boys, watch daddy show ya how it's done for another Super Bowl run!!

This.

From an organizational standpoint it's a blessing in that it reveals just how valuable these players are to the team. With Cullen, we learned the hard way. With these two we learn the hard way, but with the potential of them returning and stop any bleeding from their absence, or we learn if their absense is really that important on the cusp of some important contractual decisions.

Woodson may only have another season or so after this one with the Pack anyways, so this will give the team some longer term idea how good the defense will be without one of it's main veteran leaders for awhile. It's a good thing Ted Thompson spent pretty heavily on defensive depth in the draft, because we've sure needed it with the injuries the team has suffered so far. I don't forsee the team putting Woodson on IR because of this if he's only going to miss six weeks.

Yeah, you know...this might be sacrilege but I was thinking this is unfortunate but possibly a blessing in disguise. Woodson's been in the league at least a year longer than I think he should be. He's been gambling constantly on "Not getting caught" since he can't stop "Getting beat" and I'll be curious to see what these younger, quicker guys are able to do. Woodson's too big a name to ever not start if he's healthy, even if it's his wisdom which trumps his ball play these days.

Sir Charles is 36 I can't see him being on the team until the end of his contract. (2 more years. $9 mil per season plus incentives.)

You can't say he is too big of a name not to start. Ted was perfectly willing to let 'ol No 4 part his rump on the bench.

My guess is that this is Woodson's final year.

This Woodson getting beat is really not true, when going back and watching. And the penalties are nothing new either. Woodson has always been penalized, so was Al. Woody has never been a speed defender, he has always been, a get in their face, disrupt them off the line, and get his hands on the receiver CB. Much of the thing today is with the Zone coverages we play, and the way the broadcasts show. What we see is a receiver catching the ball, and Woodson making a tackle and assume that Woodson was on the coverage. when actually he wasn't but he was there to clean up.

The other week against Indy, Woodson was being criticized for the loss. When I went back and watched, Woodson wasn't on coverage on most of the plays, He was credited for 4 completions, and 3 of them you couldn't cover any better.

PFF has Woodson as the 43rd Safety in the NFL. Behind #9 Jerron McMillian and #34 Morgan Burnett.

We had Aaron Rodgers ready to go. Our other SSs are M.D. Jennings and Sean Richardson, and Woody doesn't play Safety half the time anyways. Not the same situation, and none of our other corners or safeties have the all-around utility that Woodson has. Replaceable? Of course. With no dropoff in performance? Not necessarily. I guess we'll see.

It is the same thing. The comment was that Woodson is too big of a name to sit. My point was a name that was bigger than Woodson was going to be sat down. No one said the replacements are as close in ability as Rodgers was to Favre. No one expected Rodgers to do so well his first year as a starter. It was simply time to move on. Will they play the same rover spot as Woodson? Probably not. Will they excel in so many areas as Woodson? probably not. Is Woodson too big to sit? No.

Thank you Twins.

I remember seeing the same thing - a perfect pass that NOBODY could have defended, and Woodson being there to mop up after other people.

This is kind of where I am leaning on Woodson going down for 6 weeks. Respectfully, the guy isn't getting any faster, and actually is losing speed. We've all seen it, and it is understandable with a 36 y/o CB. His raw, innate football sense in game situations is like few - no others. That is what has made him so valuable to our team, and this Packers defense, even to this day. I will be thrilled to see him come back from his injury to contribute on what I think will be a better, deeper secondary heading towards the playoffs.

Woodson's injury and 6 week absence is going to create opportunities for many players, like Heyward, House and McMillian, who I think will be seeing far more expanded roles. Add to that MD Jennings and Sean Richardson should be able to see more time actually playing in games. Richardson's biggest asset at Vanderbilt alongside Heyward was his play at the line of scrimmage, with 18 TFL and 3 Sacks. Capers may find a use for the kid.

This injury will also create opportunities for the staff to better assess the younger talent that they have on the roster. We may find Woodson's eventual replacement in these next 6 weeks or more. If in fact he's already on the roster, finding that out would have to be considered a positive. Have to figure, Woodson is so gifted from the raw ability, innate sense standpoint, we may never find a quote-unquote "replacement." We may find we will have to adjust, or, how to adjust our approach with different combinations on D. Again, I consider this a positive too.

I hope Wooodson sees that he can still contribute to the team by participating more as a mentor in the film room and on the sidelines for the younger players while he is healing, as opposed to what I've heard (yesterday on 1250am) as being a more hands off approach by him. If he chooses to actively mentor these players, it would be about as professional as can be. If he stays away, that might kind of suck. He knows retirement is fast approaching. I would hope he decides to mentor these players as best he can, for his team. I think $11M should buy that as a part of his deal, professionally speaking.

I should add, the guy is wired differently from most. I do think his intent by laying back with some of these guys is for them to learn on their own. That I get. I just hope he shows up to help these guys out a bit while he is rehabbing.

Aaron Rodgers said it's the same shoulder Charles Woodson hurt during the Super Bowl and also said he wouldn't be surprised to see him back after just four weeks.

This will give us a chance to see how the young guys fare. If they do great, i can see Woodson spending the end of the year warming the bench, as emergency protection.
If the guys fail, then he will be put back in ASAP.
