Charles Woodson, Nick Collins Receive All-Pro Honors

Bleacher Report Senior Analyst IJanuary 9, 2009

The Packers' secondary duo has already been honored with Pro Bowl selections for their 2008 campaign, and now they can add All-Pro selections to their resume.

Well, second team All-Pro actually, but who's counting!

It's a great honor for both Woodson and Collins, although you can argue that Woodson is deserving of a first team selection. With all the heat Ted Thompson has taken for his roster acquisition process, he should really be credited for bringing both of these players to Green Bay.

The Woodson signing a few years back has really been Thompson's only big splash into the free agency market in his brief tenure. At the time, it was a signing that seemingly was aimed to appease Brett Favre, as he was still clamoring about not signing a big name free agent like Randy Moss.

Maybe this year Aaron Rodgers should argue for Terrell Owens, and then Thompson will sign Julius Peppers. That'd be nice.

As for Collins, he's been the most successful of Thompson's draft picks on the defensive side of ball. He initially won Packers fans hearts with his inability to say his alma mater Bethune-Cookman during pre-game introductions, but has kept their approval by his big-play ability.

So congrats guys, and may you spend the offseason teaching the rest of your defensive teammates how not to suck so badly.
