Im gonna play devils advocate and say that Woodson wouldn't be all that much help. Who's to say that he would have made the play against Atlanta? He's not the same player he was. Doesn't matter how many all pro selections you have if you dont have the ability anymore.

 

That said I'd like to have him because he probably would be an upgrade but I don't think he guarantees us any wins.

I think the whole mentor angle is overblown as well. Even Smitty talks about not actively trying to teach the young guys unless they ask him. Who's to say Woodson is any different?

I think I could have won us the ATL game.  Seriously... to this day whenever I see that replay I have no idea what in the fug Nakamura was trying to do.  It's like he just kinda'... fell backwards like he was going all John Woo/Matrix bullet time or some poo.

Jesus, that's like the worst attempt at an interception I've ever seen, and he was in such an awesome position to make a play on the ball too.  Hell if anything just throw a goddamn hand up and swat that bastard away.

 

 

Everytime I see that play I just cringe. I was watching the game with a Falcon fan. He had admitted defeat before this point and I had thought I won a free meal then....this happened and he acted a fool in that bar lol

The worst part about it is that he back peddled to the ball? Wtf?

So you're saying just because Woodson is past his prime he wouldn't have been able to knock down that pass?  Woodsons football awareness and positioning would have been enough to make that play. Intangibles like that do not just go away because your'e a few years past your prime, I think he would definitely be an upgrade of what we have.

Come on Getts, get out there and be somebody!!  Don't let the Raiders bid you up.  Give Woody the deal he can't walk away from, if he tries to leave "explain" the situation to him again!

 Getts will NOT give him a "deal he can't walk away from".  The days of over spending for players is over.

 

Not to mention that Woodson would be an OK stop gap...not someone worth breaking the bank for.

I never suggested break the bank.  I'm trying to imply that getts puts an offer on the table and either A: he signs it or B: he never walks again.

 

Hence a deal he can't walk away from.

i'd love to have him but i don't want to become so enthralled with having cap space that we spend it on a regrettable decision.

 

i think regardless of what happens on this front we're going to need to find another guy that can contend to start at safety before training camp.

My bad...I thought you meant to give him a deal that he could not refuse (as in we were willing to pay much more than any other team to ensure we got him).
