I Guess Charles Woodson was Heisman Worthy

Is it just me or is it a little strange or coincidence that days after Peyton Manning won his fourth MVP, Charles Woodson won the defensive player of the year. Twelve years ago, Woodson upset Manning to win the Heisman becoming the first and only defensive player to win the award. After eleven good, but not great seasons in Oakland and Green Bay, it was looking like the Heisman Committee made a Shakespeare in Love/Saving Private Ryan mistake. But after leading the league in interceptions, returning 3 for TDS, with 63 tackles and 4 forced fumbles this year, it appears that the 921 voters weren’t that far off after all. Good thing I had them both on my fantasy team this year.
