here are a few CBs better than him:
woodson is cocky, demands way too much money for "winning a national championship and the Heisman trophy in college"... in college being the important words here. he thinks oakland should just be throwing him money for his medicore play because he was a high draft choice...
you ask all the people on this board whether charles woodson is overrated or underrated, i guarentee overrated wins because has always been hyped as a shut down corner and has never done anything to prove that...
Hes also been riddled with injuries, so it really depends on whether or not you factor that in. Some may argue Charles Rogers isnt as good as Bethel Johnson since clearly Johnson has put up much better stats, and I guess if thats the logic they use then so be it. Im not going to change anyones mind since Rogers hasent played much. Its similar to the guy who yesterday said Rogers will never be the #1 in Detroit and it was ridiculous to even think he could. I guess we all look at things differently.
When talking about talent, Im not really going to look at stats without taking into consideration injuries.
Your argument is what has he done - the answer is well, he's been injured, so he obviously hasent done much. In the rare times he has been healthy I remember him being a shutdown corner as good as any in the league. You go right ahead and rank Ronde Barber ahead of Woodson in terms of talent - its silly to me, but I understand where you are coming from.
As far as polling the Cafe - I guess I dont really care what everyone else thinks. Ive been here long enough to understand the negative affects of groupthink.
As for Woodson I have a good idea what he can do when he's healthy, and to me that makes him a top 5. Same as last yr and the yr before and the yr before...
