Collins Rewarded - Woodson Snubbed

Collins Rewarded - Woodson Snubbed

Nick Collins being named to the All-Pro second team (Hat-Tip: Greg Bedard - see how that works Greg?) makes perfect sense. His interceptions and big runbacks for touchdowns masked a lot of problems with his overall play this season. But Charles Woodson being named second team behind Cortland Finnegan is a joke. Don't get me wrong - Finnegan is a fine young corner. But he's nowhere near as good as Woodson is. Not yet. (But you'll get no argument from me on Nnamdi Asomugha being named ahead of Woodson. He is, quite simply, the best.)

UPDATE: The vote-tally is here.

woodson never gets the respect he deserves. In my opinion he is the best shutdown corner in the league and one of the best period. Collins had a good run this season and it was good to see him accel for a change. pat lee from what I hear is prospected to be a shutdown corner like harris and woodson, time will tell with that

Woodson might have looked better to writers if it weren't for the secondary's horrible game @NO, plus the games when he played safety (though I think he still forced a fumble or two).

I would agree that I think Woodson's stint at safety may have eaten away at his votes, to a degree. It's too bad, because I'm starting to think that Woodson is bringing more to this team than just solid play. He's a leader and a playmaker on a defense devoid of playmakers.

Peter King picked Finnegan ahead of Woodson earlier this week too. I laughed then, and I am still chuckling now.

Not even close...at least not at this stage of their careers.
