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.’’

    He had a majority in the House and Senate. A prez’s job is to lead. If he couldn’t lead them to vote on his measure that he thought was right, that’s on him and his party.

    Yo Bro Slams, HUGE NEWS!

    The Dawg just woke up, a few hours earlier than normal, because he’s so excited about a new SCREENPLAY idea that came to him last night during his evening bubble bath

    It’s all about 4 college brohams who go to Acapulco for Spring Break and have a contest to see how many babes they can penetrate in the backdoor

    Of course in the end they’ll fall in love so all the chicks will like it too

    And along the way there will be hella dope comedy like Animal House meets Porky’s meets Apocalypse Now

    Gonna start writing pretty soon, right after I figure out casting

    SHOUT OUT TO THEM HOLLYWOOD MOGULS

  • Rico Stifler

    I really wanted him gone now cuz I think it makes more sense to have a new HC start off with a clean slate than having to bring in a new HC try to do something with a team that was built for DA…..

  • Raider Duck

    He had a majority, but not a filibuster-proof majority. And when the minority party has dedicated themselves to filibustering literally EVERYTHING the President proposes, no amount of “leadership” is going to change that.

  • Rico Stifler

    Haven’t seen it cuz all I hear about are the people getting fired and the people getting their hours cut… I have not read one single positive from Obamacare…

  • Purvisman/Eternal Optimist

    Many felt Nixon thoroughly out debated Kennedy but was way less telegenic in one of the first(or first) televised debates.

  • TrevJo

    does it have the humor of Apocalypse Now with the wit of Porky’s and the production quality of Animal House?

  • Raider Duck

    Radio listeners thought Nixon had won the first debate, but he looked awful on television, as he’d just gotten over the flu.

  • Rico Stifler

    I agree. I have been cool with RM since we hired him. he hasn’t been perfect, but he hasn’t made any mistakes that is as bad as the many we’ve made in the ten years before RM.

    Clinton never had a filibuster proof majority, neither did W. Or really many presidents in the history of the country.
    It’s called checks and balances. He passed what would be easy to do, and has lost seats in the Senate and House ever since.

  • Raider Duck

    My favorite “fired over Obamacare” story was one about some southern sandwich shop owner who publicly announced via sign in the window that he’d be cutting all of his employees’ hours “because of Obongocare.” Then it was revealed that he only had 10 employees, and the ACA doesn’t even kick in until you have 50.

  • The Beeeeech Dawg

    Yes, except it could be the exact opposite as well

    I’m going to toke a bowl right now and contemplate the possibilities

    SHOUT OUT TO MY FELLOW FILMMAKERS

  • Raider Duck

    But neither Clinton’s nor Bush’s opposition parties had publicly stated they were going to filibuster EVERYTHING he put forth, no matter what it was for or what it did. You can’t run a government that way.

  • RaidingTexas

    Funny that Jerry is re-tweeting Ravensinsider’s tweet about the Raiders working out Kory Sheets. Why are the Raiders beatwriters not finding out about it before a Ravens writer?

  • Purvisman/Eternal Optimist

    And leave ‘me’ out of it.

  • https://twitter.com/MimiPeepeechimi Just Fire Baby

    Well, they haven’t “filibustered EVERYTHING he put forth” now have they? Have they even filibustered anything?
    BO is an Illinois dem, accustomed to having fierce elections and primaries and then passing whatever the hell he wants. No eb and flow.
    And I would think Clinton having to deal with the insane as he is Gingrich and his majority was a helluva lot harder to deal with than Boehner and his minority.

  • R8erEduc8er

    The never-ending debate. The prez with no leadership skills vs. the Republican obstructionists. I actually think the Republican obstructionists turn the prez into what he’s perceived as today. Bush going rogue vs BO going rogue is taken differently in America. I think BO underestimated how effed up Washington is and got humbled. In the end, it the American citizens who suffer…the middle class to be exact.

  • Raider Duck

    “Have they even filibustered anything?” Yeah, they have. From the beginning of George Washington’s presidency until the end of George W. Bush’s, 86 judicial nominees were filibustered. Under Obama? 82 filibusters so far. http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/statements/2013/nov/22/harry-reid/harry-reid-says-82-presidential-nominees-have-been/

  • Marley Bob

    What about setting up the OL for good?.
    Resign Veldheer, sign Alex Mack and draft Greg Robinson-Jake Matthews…..LT Veldheer, LG Wis, C Mack, RG Watson, RT Robinson/Matthews.
    We have too many holes anyway, why not plug one for years to come?.
    This way we turn the OL into the strenght of the team and under Sparano’s coaching, probably one of the top units in the League and Mack would be the oldest at 28.
    So spend the money on Veldheer and Mack, the 1st rounder in Robinson/Matthews and the rest of the picks on the best players available.

  • R8erEduc8er

    They don’t care about the Raiders until they start winning again. The so-called fans on this board barely likes the Raiders lol.

    You are a sheeple, you really think this gov gives a rats azz about you and your family.? Oca is the next step to socialism. Everyone in that building should be arrested and tried for every thievery lies , murder. Wealth redistribution will be going to the elitist up top, forget about wanting to make something of yourself because were all going to be the same. How do you kill millions of people and have them pay for it. FOOD SUPPLY ! Things will never change unless the people do something about it. What do you think their going to do ” fire themselves “

  • https://twitter.com/MimiPeepeechimi Just Fire Baby

    They didn’t filibuster the ACA, or his tax holliday bill, or his new tax code bill, and those are vastly more important than some judicial nominee nobody ever heard of.

  • R8erEduc8er

    That may be a smart approach. But the front office isn’t allowed to take a smart approach at this time. We have to make a splash. Big name, big play-maker has to be drafted.

  • Raider Duck

    You’re not going to go off on a rant about “big pharma” and “frankenfoods,” are you?

  • Guest123

    This is what the Cleveland Browns did, and what good did it do them to have a stud OL protecting a crap QB?

  • Raider Duck

    Actually, they tried to filibuster the ACA, but it was during the six weeks of Obama’s presidency when actually had a filibuster-proof majority in the Senate.

  • Purvisman/Eternal Optimist

    Which crap QB?

  • Rico Stifler

    Not sure how Watson would do as a RG. Plus, 5 is too high for a RT, imo. I think just signing Mack now would be enough to solidify the OL. Brisiel was pretty solid this past season. But I’d still want to draft or sign a young RG to eventually replace Brisiel. I think moving Wiz back to LG has to be a must at this point. While solid, he just had too many bad snaps. More than any center should have had.

    You just said “He had a majority, but not a filibuster-proof majority” 7 comments above this.
    Which one is it?

  • http://AdvoCare.com/ Till death do us part

    Like I said , Baaaaaagh

  • Guest123

    I dunno, pick one. shouldn’t be too hard

  • Rico Stifler

    McCoy, Weeden, and Brady Quinn most recently….

  • Marley Bob

    And what good is it to have a crap OL protect a crap QB?…you have to start somewhere and the OL is the closest thing to a talented unit here, build upon it, it will take a few million which we have plenty and 1 draft pick to potentially become the best OL in football…provided Watson pans out.

  • https://twitter.com/MimiPeepeechimi Just Fire Baby

    Sounds like a recipe for an incredibly boring 5-11 team that controls the clock, kicks too many field goals, and loses 23-17 when the better QB outscores us 10-3 every 4th quarter.

  • BigBenRexor

    I see everyone wants to sign Mack and move Wiz to G. By all accounts, Wiz is a fine Center. I’m all about improving the Line but what about moving Mack to Guard?

  • Rico Stifler

    I think our OL is good enough now, with exception to LG, to go ahead and get our franchise QB now….

  • kuhlest

    dude …Bridgewater has twice the arm talent as Pennington…watch a game! and he is more athletic….if you want a better comparison….

    Brees
    Rodgers
    Warner (arm wise/more mobile)
    A. Smith

  • Rico Stifler

    The OL is almost complete. Go ahead and get the QB now and finish the OL in FA. No sense in waiting til the OL is done to get a QB.

  • Guest123

    by the time you build the OL, and it takes time for even good OL’s to gel, by the time you get it where you want to be, it ages waiting for a good QB to be able to do something with it. It’s a delicate balance, and you can’t build teams anymore around anything more than a 3 or 4 year window. that is, unless you have a FC QB. that always buys you more time.

  • Rico Stifler

    How many bad snaps did Wiz have this past season? Mack is one of, if not the best, centers in the league….

  • Marley Bob

    I’d rather build one of the best OL in football and we can do that this offseason, than patch a few holes here and there…..think long term, not just 2014.

  • BigBenRexor

    I don’t know, how many?

  • Rico Stifler

    Also, I’d rather have a great center than a “fine” one who is prone to bad snaps…

  • Raider Duck

    Sigh. The ACA as we know it was passed during Obama’s filibuster-proof period (basically, between when Paul Kirk was sworn in as the deceased Ted Kennedy’s temporary replacement and Scott Brown winning the Massachusetts special election to replace him, minus the periods when Robert Byrd was in the hospital or congress was not in session). We didn’t get single-payer because the more conservative Dems wouldn’t go for it (and frankly, I’m not sure we’d even want single-payer).

  • EDWARD TEACH

    I don’t get the panic about the o-line. An undrafted rookie proved that even a small amount of field and pocket awareness made a huge difference in sack and QB hit numbers. We ran the ball pretty darn well once McFadden was finally shelved. I’d like to see a guy like Gabe Jackson taken on the second day to help the guard situation, but to me the defensive line needs WAY more attention than the offensive line does.

  • Marley Bob

    Better than losing by double digits on a weekly basis.

  • https://twitter.com/MimiPeepeechimi Just Fire Baby

    I said he was more athletic. And you watch a game. Pennington was throwing deep to Randy Moss in college, his arm died about 4 years into the league. Still the most accurate QB in NFL history.
    Arm talent is debatable.
