Romo, Woodson, Jackson named NFC players of the month

Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo, Green Bay Packers cornerback Charles Woodson and Philadelphia Eagles return man DeSean Jackson have been named the NFC players of the month.

Romo received the offensive player of the month award for leading the Cowboys to three straight wins to end the season and posting a passer rating of at least 100 in four of the Cowboys’ last five games. A month ago all the talk around the NFL was about how the Cowboys were due for a late-season collapse, but Romo has Dallas in the playoffs.

Woodson had two interceptions as the Packers finished their season winning four of their last five games, including an interception that he returned for a 45-yard touchdown in Week 17. He ended the season with nine interceptions, tied for the league lead.

Jackson won the special teams player of the month award for averaging 14.4 yards on eight punt returns, including a 72-yard touchdown. Jackson scored eight touchdowns of 50 or more yards this season, tying an NFL record set by Elroy “Crazy Legs” Hirsch in 1951 and equaled by Devin Hester in 2007.

    That’s the third time this season Woodson has won NFC Defensive player of the month. He’s only the third player in NFL history win conference POM honors three times in a year.

    Romo has been playing GREAT You Dallas fans should feel relieved!
    Woodson Is 33 and playing better than ever. His is a GREAT player who almost could be up there for MVP, he IS that good!
    DeSean Jackson is going to be a handful! Dallas should take care if him though.

    Grats to all. Woodson, you’re a beast, it’s just sad that there’s a pretty good chance you won’t be around the Packers for all that much longer…

    Good job for Romo. He had (and continues to have) a lot of pressure regarding December and post season collapses. All warranted because you cannot change the past. But he is looking forward and if he keeps his focus and the playcalling does not become too predictable, he is peaking at the right time and should do well.

    Woodson has to be player of the year. He hardly gets thrown at and he still has incredible stats.
    Revis is great but he hasn’t had the key tackles, forced fumbles, and sacks that woodson has.

    That’s what Michigan produces, my friends, beasts…like Charles Woodson. Way to go, Charles. GO BLUE! But sorry to say, go Cards this weekend!

    so woodson has won POM honors 3 out of 4 months this season(for the NFC)…that, plus his (deserved) status as def. POY puts him into the convo for MVP. will he win it? prolly not, but his numbers are insane. INSANE! and do NOT give me any excuses of “well big ben threw for 500 yrds against the pack” because i would bet than less than 80 of those were against woodson.
    might as well give him the DPOY award already…

    Cusoman must have some inside dope. Woodson is happy with his coach and even though he spoke to the press about the schemes early in the season, he left his personal communications with Dom Capers out of it, thereby not making him look like a eunuch. That’s a slight that builds up the kind of antagonism that makes it hard for people to work together. If not impossible. One and gone.

    Why do they give the award to more than 1 player?

    If Woodson does not win Defensive Player of the Year, then I don’t know who will. The dude has been an absolute monster this season and to be named Player of the Month just once is saying something but Woodson didn’t just win it once or twice. He won it three times and that alone pretty much seals the envelope.
    I admit Darrelle Revis is having one hell of a year but I don’t see him even coming close to beating out Woodson for Defensive Player of the Year.

    Michigan hasn’t done jack in a decade.

    Good list, but I think if Matt Moore got this award in dec. 07 of his rookie year for going
    2-3, I think he should be recognized for going 3-4 this time around. losing to a close game in New England, and then taking care of the vikes, giants, and saints.

    Do you have inside information? I’m guessing he has another 2 seasons at corner AT LEAST before the Packers even think about making him a safety. Hes got some years left in him with the Pack

    So wait, Woodson was NFC player of the month 3 times…and they play regular season football in 4 months…..he sucks. So does Erin Rodgers, and oh yea, Ted Thompson is an incompetent jag bag.
    Brett Favre is the better than the iPhone, Snuggies, and the Jonas Brother COMBINED!!!!!!!!!!!

    I assumed cusoman was referring to Woodson’s age as the reason he wouldn’t be around long. There have been a few DBs who survived the advancement of years for awhile, but the drop off unfortunately can come in a hurry. Just enjoy him while he’s out there playing as well as he is.
