Woodson: Brady owes me everything


Let the `Tuck Rule’ go?

Not Charles Woodson.

In a segment with Deion Sanders and Jamie Dukes on the NFL Network, the Raiders safety took a moment to get something off his chest regarding the historical event of Jan. 19, 2002.

“Lets get this out of the way. If they make the correct call, which they did at first, and then they overturned it, this 18 (playoff wins) that Tom Brady has, it never happened,’’ Woodson said. “Tom Brady owes me his house. I’m the reason why he’s married to who he’s married to. Everything. Because they overturned that call. Tom, come on now, fess up, it was a fumble. It’s still a fumble.’’

Woodson’s rant was good-natured and done in part for comedic effect. He and Brady were teammates at Michigan.

On the play, Woodson came on a corner blitz and forced an apparent fumble by Brady which was recovered by Greg Biekert, appeared to secure a 13-10 win for the Raiders at Foxboro Stadium.

Instead, referee Walt Coleman overturned the play, ruling it an incomplete pass. He cited the `Tuck Rule,’ making it an incomplete pass. The Patriots went on to tie the game 13-13 on a 45-yard field goal by Adam Vinatieri and won the game in overtime.

The `Tuck Rule’ has since been stricken from the record book.

It was Brady’s first playoff win _ he know has 18, the most in NFL history _ and jump-started a Hall of Fame career and a life that includes a marriage to super model Giselle Bundschen.

Woodson, 37, is scheduled for unrestricted free agency and said he wants to come back and play for the Raiders.

“I thought he was very solid and could contribute and I told him so,’’ Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie said this week. “I told him I would like to talk about getting him back here.’’

  • Rico Stifler

    Don’t know, but I am sure he led the league in the category…. Can’t find anything that says how many he has had…

  • Marley Bob

    That sounds great, but I don’t see the Franchise QB available this year at 5…the best QB to come out of this class may well come from round 2 and beyond.

  • Rico Stifler

    I got my money on Carr at 5 or Garoppolo in the second or third as the two best QBs in this draft.

  • I’m glad you think this is funny , crackhead

  • The Beeeeech Dawg

    Rico Retardo, I’m working on a new screenplay right now that features a huge dork just like you

    You’re gonna love it, but don’t get any funny ideas about royalties, my lawyers will STRIKE U DOWN

  • No to rico

  • Guest123

    not saying ground and pound doesn’t work, but you are relying on too many moving parts to make it happen. you need 5 stud OL and a durable stud RB and capable QB. Sure it could work, but injuries or draft/fa misses could just as easily derail the plan.
    contrast that plan to the stud qb theory. you only need to hit on a fc qb and the rest of it takes care of itself. almost.

  • Rico Stifler

    The Ol is fine for the most part. Our QB position is not…. McG was only sacked six times in seven games played. That says enough for me to be confident in getting our franchise QB now. Derek Carr is well known for his lightning fast release.

  • Purvisman/Eternal Optimist

    Ever notice that each and every year all historical evidece supporting that view is anamolous and doesn’t apply to this years draft?

  • Raider Duck

    I’m not hanging on the “sack” of somebody I didn’t even vote for. And quit getting all your information from the anti-GMO nutbars.

  • DutchRaid

    Holy Sheet! A new Post!

  • Rico Stifler

    Browns have one of the best LTs in Joe Thomas and he has been around seven plus years already….

  • Marley Bob

    I agree Teach, but who is that stud DL at 5? I can see Jernigan becoming one, as I said I’d like to have him if he continues to rise but the best player available at 5 might just be Greg Robinson or Jake Matthews and they would be instant starters, one of them might also entice a team to trade up and that would be the best case scenario for us.

  • Rico Stifler

    No Lie!!!

  • Guest123

    made me look again!

  • Rico Stifler

    No, it is there…. Jerry finally wrote up about the Sheets workout and the Flip OC interview…

  • Raider Duck

    “Crackhead?” You’re the one going on about congress planning to eat everyone or whatever.

    And yes, I think it’s hilarious when some hillbilly racist claims “the government’s hurting me” and it’s revealed that nothing of the sort what happening.

  • Purvisman/Eternal Optimist

    Not a real one, though. Just JMac.

  • Rico Stifler

    I don’t care. Manziel is a scrawny punk who will flame out of the NFL….

  • BigBenRexor

    I don’t remember any bad snaps.

  • Do us all a favor and keep eating it, I’m sure obablecare will be there for you at least


    I know some in here have reservations about Clowney, but no one in the NFL seems to. I tend to side with the professionals on that one. If he isn’t there (and I’ve posted this before) I’d like to see what kind of deal Reggie can put together to trade down, perhaps for someone like Jernigan or Kony Ealy from Mizzou. A team wanting Matthews or Robonson (or even one of the remaining QBs if they’re there) could be potential partners.

  • Rico Stifler

    Really? He had a bad snap week 17 against Denver that resulted in a TO. he had several with Pryor earlier in the season that resulted in TOs and he had several with McG that, ghuess what?! resulted in TOs…. Honestly, i think he had close to 10 that resulted in TOs I think…

  • Guest123

    exactly! he ain’t gettin any younger and his prime years will be wasted on the blue chip first round investment soon.

  • AutumnThunderstorm

    Seriously, a new post.
    Of course on Raider news we’ve discussed or been reported already.

  • No he won’t, yes he will, no he won’t, yes he will,, won’t !

  • Marley Bob

    Agreed on all counts, but what if no trade offer comes up? Clowney won’t be there, that is a fact, Watkins is probably the 2nd best player behind Clown, he’ll likely be gone….BPA would be Robinson-Matthews, what do we do?

  • Defensive line is way more important than the O-line anways.
    Last year the Ravens won it all with a crap O-line, and the Seahawks O-line graded out as 27th in the NFL this year.
    But look at the Ravens, 49ers, Seahawks, Donkeys, even the NYG’s and Patriots and Steelers and Packers……..all good to great D-lines.




    A lot of hypotheticals there, so hard to address. I’d be surprised if Watkins and Clowney were both off the board at five, but you never know. It’ll be interesting to see what happens.

  • How do you get diabetes little sheep, or chronic illness, oh that’s right it fell out of the sky, nevermind

  • The insurance companies are silent as well, nothing like sweet back door bailouts

  • Raider Duck

    There are medically proven explanations for both. But don’t let that stop your woo-woo conspiracy nonsense.

  • That’s right , the same people that made this hc system, the ones who made a drug to counteract drug after drug after drug. Your medical theory holds no water, over 85% of illness in this country is diet related, you seem intelligent by the things you type, you may just be ignorant. Back to football

  • I knew it, I never brought up race in this and I’m not hillbilly, but I and everyone on this blog know what you are now ! Quack Quack
