More Woodson Q&A

Inadvertantly left off some questions from the Woodson conference call, including an illuminating answer about the difference in the building from the Al Davis days to the Reggie McKenzie regime:

Q: Can you talk about the process with Denver, and what kind of role did they want you to fulfill?

Woodson: Just typical free agent stuff. You go in, you meet, you talk, and the meeting went really well with the coaches. I think we all pretty much hit it off. But there’s always of course the business side of it that sometimes comes up short. So it didn’t work out. This situation did. So here I am, an Oakland Raider again.

Q: Only in the building for an afternoon, but could you already tell the difference in the vibe from the last time you were in in 2005 with Mr. Davis running the organization?

Woodson: I think having Reggie in there, and having somebody that’s really in that decision-making role other than Mr. Al Davis is definitely a different vibe. It seems like there’s more of a control factor as far as what they want to do and what they want to implement as far as their team is concerned. I think it’s a good vibe in there..

Q: When you left here you were Pro Bowl player four times, went to Green Bay, your career was good here, great in Green Bay. What were the causes for you taking your career to the next level?

Woodson: I think toward the end of Oakland, there was some injuries that kind of kept me off the field. Then I think that team-wise, we weren’t a very good team. I think that people just look at you as an individual and say, `If the team’s bad, you’re bad.’ I definitely didn’t play bad football my last y ears. I actually played pretty good football. Going into Green Bay was just a fresh start and I was able to stay on the field and go out there and do my thing and I had opportunity. When I got over there, quarterbacks were testing me a lot more than they had at any time in my career, and it gave me ample amount of opportunity to get the ball, and I was able to get my hands on a lot of balls, make a lot of interceptions and people started to notice again what kind of player I was.

    Back to back 8-8 seasons with top dollar players is not winning.
    A 4-12 season proves what Kelly said….” I’m expecting to get cut”
    Remember Huffy saying that he was playing in a real defense now? How much did he make?

    I don’t mind if the Raiders go over the cap, but if the top dogs can’t produce then we have a problem. A problem that has existed for years. It’s called losing seasons

    Priest don’t bother telling the Reggime apologists(Al-haters) that you want to see him win & will base your opinion on said person because of that one criteria. Anybody that loves a guy who went 4-12 his 1st year & HATES the guy who created the most distinct organization in professional sports, 3 NFL titles, 5 AFL/AFC titles, and for awhile the most winningest team in professional sports is in obvious need of a brain transplant…or better yet they should have been rooting for one of the other 31 politically correct pu$$y teams that were not run by their mortal enemy of their supposed “favorite” team.

    Hey Al hater, I got news for you, unlike you whining pu$$ies, I don’t SOLELY base on his WORST 8 years. You guys hate Al, good for you, THEN WHY THE FU** DID YOU BECOME RAIDER FANS?

    And guess what, if ripping Al makes you think that Shreg is more competent, have at it, but you are still a moron.

    It’s got to be a generational thing.

    There is a whole slew of Raider fans like myself in their early 30′s, where the Raiders have been the laughinstock of the NFL far too often.

    Never seen a Super Bowl win. 1-3 in AFC championship games. Less playoff appearances then all our crappy divisional foes. Worst 7 year run in NFL history.

    It’s been just all about all bad and very rarely good.

    So excuse the F out of me, if I am willing to give Reggie McKenzie the same 25 years I gave Al, to see if he can deliver something to me as a fan, Al Davis never could.

    33 myself. It must be a generational thing. I’M TIRED OF LOSING. How anybody could think that Al could bring the team back by himself (no GM), with an overhead projector, and no scouting team (or at least on he trusted), is beyond me…

    We should never have taken a step back if he really knew what he was doing. He screwed up bad firing Hue and hiring this damn fool of a coach. So we end of with 12 freakin loses after biulding things back up.

    I don’t want to hear this cap crap………..period

    dude, ur old. ur decrepit. u can’t remember yesterday, and on top of that ur a proven drunk. no one cares about what u want to hear, u old silly fool. al davis will be remembered as one of the worst owners in all of sports, and will always be referred to as an example of what a meddlesome owner can do to a organization. 7 years of 11+ losses UNDER AL DAVIS. and u complain about a new gm’s first year of cleaning up al’s mess? go take a nap, old man

    And ur a piece of garbage.

    I personally like everyone hating on the raiders, after all these years of it, its not ok to jump on now. You can look stupid like everyone else when we get it figured out this year. The day I found this blog I could careless what they have to say. Raiders are already some badmfkrs. Wait till we start winning.

    Wasn’t Trapp the guy who went onto the field in LA when we were fighting with the Broncos in street clothes?

    Just completely fueld the Raiders reputation.

    It’s not all about age. I’ve been a fan since 1975 or so. I loved Al Davis and his creativity and his “won’t take shlt from anyone” attitude. I loved that he has the ballz to move to la. And them even more to move back. But he didn’t keep up w the times. He tried to ignore the salary cap like he ignored the rest of the NFL rules. And ignore the scouts that said you need to draft football players, not just athletes. And stopped hitting on washed up veterans that he was so good at picking up in the 70s and 80s. It was a hole combination of things. To the point that I couldn’t wait for him to be gone. And I knew he would leave until he died. So I certainly didn’t want him dead, but since it was the only way he will leave, I’ll take it.

    Idk for sure if we r going in the right direction. And I have some serious doubts about HC. But at least it SEEMS like there is light at the end of the tunnel now. I haven’t even felt that, much less winning, for over 10 years now. So I’ll take it.

    And the Hugh Jackson years? Nothing like the Gruden years. He did It right then. Built through the draft and picked up key FAs. The Jackson “era” if you wanna call his one year an “era” was mostly smoke and mirrors.
