Two weeks ago in Tampa, Charles Woodson was assigned to shut down Kellen Winslow, which he promptly did (of course, one of the few times he WASN’T on him, Winslow scored a touchdown) Then this past Sunday, Woodson was assigned to neutralize Jason Witten, who up until this past weekend had spent his entire career just destroying the Packers, and Woodson did just that.
And now one Mr. Vernon Davis is coming to town. Here’s one scouts take as told to Pete Dougherty:
He’s a matchup problem…Generally speaking you can’t put a linebacker on him because he’ll wear your linebacker out, very few linebackers can actually run with him. Even if you put a safety on him, it has to be a cover safety, (Davis) runs that well. You see it time and time again where he just runs by people. If you stop him, if you keep him from being the big-play guy, they don’t have anything else.
He’s a matchup problem indeed – for teams that don’t have Charles Woodson.
