    Interesting move by Al...would be surprised if Woodson could convince Nnamdi to stay, but even if he can't, I'd love to see what he could do with our younger CBs.

    I think he'll make an excellent coach. He really understood the game.

    I wonder if we interviewed him for our position.

    I hope he turns out to be great, but history has shown great players rarely translate into great coaches. Then again, Rod is starting small at the position he knows best...so maybe in a few years time we'll see him take on a bigger role...and hell maybe he'll be a HC some day :D.

    I think it's about finding your niche... Dungy turned out to be a pretty good HC. Haslett (IMHO) is a pretty good DC.

    Rod may never want to step beyond position coach, but if he addresses it the way he addressed his playing career, he could very well be the best secondary coach there ever was.

    Uh, hello, he has never been a Bronco, or a friend or relative of Gary. No chance in hell...

    Whatever it takes to get him off NFLN, I'm happy. Couldn't stand his mouth when he was with the Steelers and it didn't improve when he tried to sabbatage my favorite channel by his mumbling and bumbling.

    However, Torry Holt's not doing much better. I sure hope they keep looking. Between Holt's poor speech and a middle finger that's perpendicular to the others....I'll pass.

    I agree completely. When I see Holt's mug on the screen I'm on the mute button. Can't stand listening him talk. The NFLN needs to find someone else for that seat.

    I agree completely. I think his attention to detail and worth ethic will help any secondary that he's working with.

    That's funny, because I have the exact opposite opinion. Woodson is one of my favorite analysts on All Access, and I will miss his presence.

    As always, though, to each his own. :)

    Admittedly, my stance on him being on NFLTA might be a bit bias from his Steelers days. Every time we played them he had some smartass comment to make about the Oilers. He was an arrogant prick.

    *ahem* Would've liked to have him on my team though

    Yeah, I don't get the hate on Woodson at all as an analyst. He speaks well and I have always enjoyed hearing his takes. As a player I hated him so badly when he was on the Steelers. He used to kill the Oilers back in the day. By the time he retired though and was out of the Oilers hairs he became my favorite DB of all time. The guy was great at CB and at safety.

    So it would have been okay if he would have been that same guy on the Oilers and made the same types of comments about other team rivals? Pretty hypocritical then I'd say. It's okay if our players are acting that way, but when other team's players are they're D-Bags?

    Dude, it was a joke. Hop off your little high horse

    He was a dick and always will be a dick. Talented? Yes, but still a dick

    Still have not gotten any real description as to why he was "a dick" but whatever. Carry on. :)

    I would like to see us atleast ask Aaron Glenn if he'd like to coach DBs.
