The Packers were punked in their opener against the Niners on Sunday, but there’s one player on defense that doesn’t seem too concerned – that being Charles Woodson.
Woodson stated after the 30-22 loss to San Fran that the Pack D will be just fine, and the new players on D will take some getting use to.
“We’re just getting started here,” Woodson said after Sunday’s game. “It’s been a long training camp, and we’re trying to figure out pieces and how we’re going to run this defense going forward. I’m going to keep saying, we’re going to be a good defense, trust me.”
Alex Smith was 20 of 26 for 211 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions, and Frank Gore ran for 112 yards and a touchdown, and the Pack allowed 377 yards of offense to San Francisco.
“This was a team that went to the (NFC) championship game last year and they have just about everybody back and they’ve added some pieces, so they’re a good team, make no mistake about it,” Woodson said. “We’re jelling together as a team. This is really, especially defensively, a new team (with) a lot of new players. We’re going to get where we need to be. I promise you that.”
