misleading title is misleading.

He never says hes unhappy. Sure, hes anxious to get back on the field, but the doctors know with collarbone fractures that you don't want to rush back from them. The longer you hold out the better. We don't need him right now, so there is no reason to bring him back. Obviously if there is an injury in the secondary we won't be able to afford keeping on the sidelines anymore, so yes, he would be "ready to go." He'll be back for the playoffs. This is a huge non issue, there is no story here.

I believe Woody is itching to get back on the field. He knows how good Hayward is.

Of course he wants to be back out there, anyone would.

all is well.
I am sure he wants to play a few more years and being out on the field for 3-4 reg season games plus playoffs would have been a bargaining chip for him. While he loves the game he knows that losing playing time will cost him big bucks down the road.

On the other hand, when I picture him saying that he has his head down and he's poking at some dirt on the floor with his shoe, talking in a very subdued tone.

True.

The writing may be on the wall with Woodson, but he can still contribute. Astronomical cap figure to go along with an incredible ability to snuff out plays and shut them down at the point of attack. Chuck has no fear in hitting, is nursing the collar bone back to health. His wheels not what they were, but he does make up for that most times with experience. While it should be an interesting offseason, there is still something very big to play for.

Transitioning a premiere talent to retirement is never easy. He wants to go out big, with another Super Bowl Win. I'm glad he's on our side.

Ted & Mike have done great jobs in bringing new talent in to fill the void. So much so, that there no longer is a real void. Adding Charles back into the mix should only help for the playoffs.

I am happy to see how the backend has held up. There are still plays where the communication is not there, but they have improved since last year and that is big. Still the story to me is the impact Clay and Neal have on the defense as a whole.

Dude! That pass rush is everything! Without it, the best DBs in the NFL are worthless. Here here! Bring the house!

Woody is fine. Any player in his situation would be itching to get back into the game. Luckily, he has pretty decent back up from these rookies so he can heal better. I wouldn't want to take the chance with a healing collarbone, especially in his role on defense where he is basically an extra linebacker.

1. Is anyone other than me worrying about the fact that this is the SECOND time he broke his collarbone?

2. I admit that I was wrong about drafting Hayward. But if the price of bringing Woodson in is having Hayward sit more, I'd rather have Hayward sit. Woodson on the downslope is still better than Hayward right now.

IMO.

I'd be more worried if it was the same bone as last time.

I thought the collarbone was one bone?

I thought about it when he was injured. Back then I decided that I would be worried about it if he was 25 or so. With only a year or two (If any) left in his playing days I am not worried. Since then I have also concluded it is not as much of an issue because of the pay of the young dbs.
