Woodson Likes the New Packers 3-4 Defense

Seems that Charles Woodson feels good about the new Packers 3-4 defense coming in 2009:

And as far as football is concerned, Charles Woodson is taking things in stride, hoping he can produce another stellar season like the one last year. So far, he looks like a natural in Dom Capers’ 3-4 scheme. He picked off quarterback Aaron Rodgers on Sunday and no longer is sounding the alarm about the Packers needing some new blood on defense. All in all, he feels better than he did the day after the 6-10 debacle of 2008 ended.

“I do, I do,” Woodson said after the morning practice Sunday. “Absolutely (better than 6-10). I don’t see a repeat of last year. I feel good about the personnel we have. Though everybody doesn’t think we have the people here to run this defense, I believe we do. So I look for big things out of this defense.” That’s quite a turnaround from what Woodson had to say the day after the Packers finished their season with a 31-21 victory over the Detroit Lions. It wasn’t a Ryan Braun-type condemnation of the defense, but he did suggest that Thompson consider shopping the market. “No question,” Woodson said at the time. “It’s needed.” As it turned out, the only free-agent addition Thompson made on defense was picking up safety Anthony Smith after the Pittsburgh Steelers declined to make him a qualifying offer. That’s not exactly an Albert Haynesworth-Bart Scott kind of move.
