PFT on NBCSN: Danny Woodhead, Week Five preview
Callahan ran into Woodhead a few years later, when both men were with the Jets. From the beginning, Woodhead just wanted to play football. He didn’t want to walk on and play special teams in Lincoln, which was the offer back then. So he went to Chadron State, a Division II school in the northern Nebraska panhandle. The town has one stoplight, and the school is so remote that deer will occasionally walk out onto the field during football practice. But Woodhead shook things up in the tiny town. He ran for 7,962 career yards, which was an NCAA all-division record at the time.
– – The Pats have (clearly) shown that they know how to find, develop, then part ways with great talent at just the right time. But in this case, I think they really screwed the pooch. To lose Welker and Woodhead at the same time, is nuts. You can see how those two guys are now serious assets to both the Broncos and Chargers, respectively. He wont say it to the media, but you KNOW that Brady is pissed that he lost his security blankets, in those two guys. patsbrat says: Oct 4, 2013 8:30 PM When you talk to Danny please tell him Pats fans everywhere miss him and we are still rooting for him!

Welcome to Danny Woodhead’s world
“Everyone likes watching him play. He’s so quick, finds the holes. Does what he’s told to do, view does it right, and does it consistently.” Woodhead does it all consistently enough, Danny Woodhead Nike Jersey Womens with at least one spectacular head-shaking play per game, to have just been awarded a contract through 2012 that (with incentives that no one now doubts he’ll meet) is worth more than $3 million — which isn’t small change for a small guy who, three months ago, with a pink slip from the Jets in hand, was driving back home with his wife to Nebraska in his ’08 Tahoe.

Im trying to do what I can with my skill set and do it to the best of my ability. Woodhead is not the athlete and is not as fast as Sproles.

When youre doing something outside one time, inside one time, backfield one time, thats the first thing youve got to be because you have to be able to handle all that stuff. Woodhead has so far actually been a version of Sproles that we only imagined. It is true that the bulk of Sproles six seasons in San Diego were spent in the LaDainian Tomlinson era, but even in 2009 when Tomlinson was injured and 10, after Tomlinson had departed, Sproles did not routinely touch the ball as much as Woodhead has so far.
