Packers cornerback Charles Woodson in fine form, despite pain

In Green Bay's Week 4 victory over Detroit, cornerback Charles Woodson again displayed the form of a future Hall of Famer.

Woodson's 48-yard interception-return touchdown provided the difference in the Packers' 28-26 victory. Woodson, the 2009 NFL defensive player of the year, also had three passes defensed and made the final three defensive plays on Detroit's final possession - one tackle and two passes defensed.

Woodson (toe) is among many Packers defensive players trying to play through pain, and he was listed as "limited" Thursday on the team's injury report. The Packers said Woodson did not practice Wednesday, but "Charles will play on Sunday, I think you can count on that," Packers Coach Mike McCarthy said of the five-time all-pro selection.

"He's one of our prime-time players on defense He's smart, he's tough. He does an excellent job of route combination and identification. And he has the ability, when he gets his hands on the ball, to find the end zone. He's just a very instinctive, smart football player."

You think Reid wants the Skins to lose?

So far we have had how great Rodgers and FInley are, how difficult they are to match up, now Woodson?

Theres giving an analysis of another teams strengths and weaknesses and how to beat them like CSNwashington and John Keim do then theres having a man crash on every team the Redskins play.

Wasn't he the guy that stripped Santana during the last game we played the Packers, and ran it back for a touchdown?

I just remember that being a really fluky play where he was down, but the refs were watching old Benny Hill reruns instead of the play and blew the call, so we lost.
