Charles Woodson is going to be out six weeks with a broken collarbone. Unlike Kansas City fans I will never cheer when someone is injured but in this situation the Packers may be better off with MD Jennings and Casey Heyward playing more and Woodson playing less. it's always hard to say goodbye to a veteran player. The Packers are doing it With Donald Driver this season and lets face it..if Driver hadnt won Dancing with the Stars and set a new career record of passes caught last year, he wouldnt be back this season. It would have been very difficult to sit Woodson down like they have with Driver but you have to admit that Woodson's play has been slipping. If the refs wanted to they could call holding or pass interference on Woodson almost every play.
I wish him a speedy recovery but unless Jennings, Heyward and McMillian absolutley stink, Woodson will probably have a hard time getting his starting job back. And the Packers will be better for it.
The San Francisco Giants have rode their pitching staff and Marco Scutaro to a World Series berth. The Giants won 6 elimination games in this playoff season alone and the light hitting Scutaro banged out 14 hits and won the NLCS MVP. They will host Detroit on Wednesday and fans of great pitching should love this series.
Check out the story on this site about DC Everest football player Mitchell Boals. He was injured late in Friday nights game and was coughing up blood. There was talk that he would ride the bus back and see a doctor back home. If that would have happened he probably would have died on the bus. On such decisions lives are forever changed. He's now recovering in a Green Bay hospital after emergency surgery that saved his life. He says he will be back on the field next year.
