Woodson Good Enough to Be Canton Bound After He Retires?

Mike Vandermause at Green Bay Press-Gazette talks about Charles Woodson and if he’s been good enough to make it to the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Here’s a piece of his comments.

Don’t think that Hall of Fame voters haven’t taken notice. Woodson’s five-year reign of terror with the Packers, combined with a solid eight-year career with the Oakland Raiders, makes him a probable, if not likely candidate to be enshrined in Canton.

“Woodson is not Reggie White, and he’s not Deion Sanders, but I think his credentials are better than some cornerbacks in the Hall of Fame,” said Cliff Christl, a Pro Football Hall of Fame voter for the past 10 years who has covered the NFL for nearly four decades. “I think he’s pretty close to being almost a certainty, almost a cinch.”

Christl, a former Packers beat writer and sports editor for the Green Bay Press-Gazette, is one of 44 Hall of Fame voters. He knows not everyone on the selection panel will share his high opinion of Woodson.

“I don’t think Woodson’s going to be an automatic,” Christl said. “You’re going to probably have to sell some people. But I do think he’s got a really strong chance.”

    wait…wtf no obviously he is he should be in within 2 years of eligiblilty. i mean honestly he was one of the best CB’s in the league for about 10 years….then he had probably the best season any CB has ever had in 09 and again re invented the position in 10 with 100 tackles throw in 2 picks and 5 forced fumbles and a couple sacks. lol
