Paths cross again for Woodson, Manning

Charles Woodson, and Peyton Manning, two of the most decorated and respected players in the NFL, meet on the field for only the fifth time Monday night at Sports Authority Field.

Click here to read about two players who competed for the Heisman Trophy in 1997 and then four months later sat in the same green room for the NFL draft.

Manning went No. 1 to the Colts, Woodson No. 4 to the Raiders. In between, the San Diego Chargers took Ryan Leaf and the Arizona Cardinals selected defensive end Andre Wadsworth of Florida State. Leaf was derailed by his own maturity and personality, while Wadsworth had bad knees and was out of the league in four years.

In terms of head-to-head meetings, Woodson was 2-1 against Manning with the Raiders and 1-0 with the Packers, all against the Colts.

Peyton Manning by the numbers
60,256 _ Passing yards, third all-time
445 _ Touchdown passes, second all-time
156 _ Regular-season wins, second all-time
37 _ TD passes in 2012, set Broncos record
12 _ Pro Bowl selections
4 _ Most Valuable Player awards
XLI _ Super Bowl champion, 2006 season

Charles Woodson by the numbers

896 _ Interception return yards, second among active players.
55 _ Interceptions, second among active players.
15 _ Consecutive seasons with an interception, fourth-all-time
13 _ Defensive touchdowns, second all-time
8 _ Pro Bowl selections
1 _ Defensive player of the Year award
XLV _ Super Bowl champion, 2010 season

    wow GREAT INSIGHT… amazing interview.

  • RaidersAllday_LtsGeTit

    Jon Gruden says he wants to come back to COACHING.

    Said it. He wants to come back just doesnt know when.

  • RaidersAllday_LtsGeTit

    Sounds like he is talking in code about if he could come back to the Raiders if the oppurtunity came up.

    Carson Palmer still has plenty of fans on this blog.

    Dakota, silver, Dr Bob, Purvis, SeyGlenn
    *********
    I’m not a fan of Palmer.

    He was a solid qb here and the so-called fans who bashed him were ridiculous.

    And they’re the same people who claim being anti-Pryor is a sign ur not a raiders fan.

    Hypocrisy defined.

    Except Palmer actually played pretty well. Pryor hasn’t.

    And I also noted that other than his first few seasons, he has actually just been league-average.

    Just facts. Not bullsh1t.

    I hope this is the game Pryor breaks out, it seems like it would be fitting. He ain’t scared of the bright lights, this is his type of game.

    Never understood why a lot of folks in The Nation WANT the recognition. I like being under the radar.

    ============

    Ditto

    @@@@@@@@@

    Eh. I want recognition. I wanna be feared and loathed and revered all at the same time. I want the talking heads from the Donks and Dolts pissing in their pants describing what it is we r about to do to their old teams. I want Berman to renounce his being a San Diego fan after we send Rivers off the field crying. I want Gruden and Gannon to say “holy shlt, never saw a Raiders team this good”. I want Madden to be able to die a peaceful death knowing we r gonna kick the shlt out of 9 out of the next 10 opponents, year in and year out. I want all the haters like Mike Silver and Tim Kawakami to give up because they have noting negative to write about anymore. I want to win so much those puzzies on the HOF board have no choice but to let in Guy and Plunkett and Brown and all the other disrespected Raiders from the last 30 years. I want guys like Steve Tasker and John Lynch, some of the other small number of broadcasters that actually look for something good to say about us to be applauded and recognized for it.

    I want it all.

    Nobody seems to like it when I use it pointing out how former Raiders that Reggie dumped are doing… psst:

    Bryant: +1.8
    DHB: +1.5
    Kelly: +.5
    CP: +3.3

  • the amazing dr robert

    Pryor never met Davis. Not face to face, anyway.

    Pryor said he spoke with Davis “about eight to 10 times.”

    “You could tell he was really sick,” Pryor said. “You could tell he wasn’t well.

    Several sources have said that Davis went back and forth on whether to select Pryor

    There were already doubts about the position he would play in the NFL

    “I wish I could have met him in person.”
