Unreal that Barnett doesn’t make this team. Unreal – he is the leader of a strong defense that has risen over the last couple of years. He’s played better than Lofa Tatupu and Patrick Willis. Willis is a great rookie no question, but he has so many tackles only because nobody else can tackle anyone on SF. Ridiculous that Barnett is not at least a reserve.
Woodson has had a great season and should be starting opposite Harris. Marcus Trufant is only going because of interceptions numbers. Interceptions do change games, but so does solid tackling, veteran leadership and playing suffocating coverage. Also, Woodson has had much more of an impact on the field this year than Terrance Newman. Ridiculous.
In some sense though, perhaps it will help us down the road that Dallas has 11 players and the Packers only have 4 – that will be good motivational material.
