Packers cornerback Charles Woodson, who finally won a Super Bowl in his 13th NFL season, has no plans to retire.

He recently told AnnArbor.com, via NFL.com, that he intends to stay with the Packers indefinitely.  “As many as they’ll have me in Green Bay,” he said regarding his future with the team.

Woodson also said that the collarbone he broke in the first half of Super Bowl XLV “feels fine.”  An emotional halftime speech from Woodson fueled the team’s victory over the Steelers in what could be the last game played for a while.

    When you are the best it shows. All of the Revis talk is a joke he couldn’t hold Woodson’s jock as an all around defender.

    Some players go to different teams get the big pay day, some go play in a city for spot light, and others go (or stay) to win championships.

    Well Chucky, when you decide to retire just give us some time to get the letters for the ROF together and to throw a big party for you. You definately deserve it.

    A very close second best FA get by the Packers (Reggie is #1) and probably the 3rd best FA in NFL history.

    Charles is a Class Act!!!

    I remember when Ted first got him, he was a trouble-making Raider that he didn’t want to be in GB… Now just look at him.

    He’ll eventually move to Safety before his career is done and afterward he will make an excellent DB coach.

    Go Packers!

    Further proof that players want to be a part of this organization that rewards its players for their dedication to their jobs and recognizes their character and contributions to society.

    1. Ryan Grant, though expendable, will remain because of his commitment to the team and contributions to the community (ie Ryan2Ryan scholarship)

    2. Al Harris, who poured his heart and soul into the team for years, took out a full page Thank You ad in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel after he was released, and still received a Super Bowl ring that was well deserved.

    3. Several past players, such as Edgar Bennett, LeRoy Butler, Bart Starr, etc, who have remained an active part of the team and community.

    Circle of honor right next to #92. You are the best man. Class act on and off the field. Pack Nation loves you man.

    Class act defender and a
    Class act organization.

    And we will be glad to have you, Charles, for as long as you want to stay!

    I still cannot believe GB won the frickin’ title. That was a ridiculous run they went on …

    Props …

    Aaron Rodgers may be the best QB in the game right now …

    From 8-6 and “fire McCarthy” to another ring …

    Unreal.

    On a semi-related note – if you get a chance to try Woodson’s wine go for it! 24 Wines is good stuff.

    Charles Woodson .. future Packer Hall of Famer ..

    We Love Wood!

    I was very excited to see him finally win a ring this year. He’ll eventually be enshrined in Canton, he deserves that honor.

  14. virusgvr says: May 18, 2011 12:58 AM

    Easily a first round HOF!!!

    What’s not to like about this guy? I haven’t heard his name mentioned in the nasty labor talks, he’s not out breaking the law, the only time you hear about him, it’s positive. The Packers are a good fit for him. Great guy and a great organization. Packer fans got it good, wish I was one of them! Go Seahawks? Yeah, go Seahawks!

  16. raiderspride says: May 18, 2011 2:30 AM

    As a fan of Chuck.. I will always think, smile, and appreciate that Chuck can wear his Super Bowl Ring to any event he wants to. He can flash the sparkle for the rest of his life.

    A great Raider…. An Even Greater Packer.

    As Rob Davis said in an interview, the Packers are the team you might think you don’t want to go to, but once you’re there you never want to leave.

  18. noeffinway says: May 18, 2011 7:49 AM

    …good guy. BUT “class act organization?” Ha! ?? Lmao ….typical packer fan would say something like that….just like a good catholic – turn a blond eye and pretend all is perfect….get a grip……lmao…can you say Chumura???

  19. ilpackerbacker says: May 18, 2011 8:38 AM

    “lmao…can you say Chumura???”

    LOL, oh man … gotta love Bears and Vikings fans. The Bears haven’t won jack squat since you wore Spiderman Underoos and the Vikings should throw you a party in their trophy cabinet – the mofo is empty – plenty of room in there!

    @noeffinway

    You proved our point exactly. When the Packers found out Chumura was messing around with high schoolers, he was on the next bus out of town.

    Class organization.

    jbythebay. They must have given him a round trip ticket, because he’s in the Packer hall of fame.

    Why do you assume anyone that put-down the Packers is a Bears or Vikings fan?
    Your holier than thou homeristic over the top fans get on everyone’s nerves.
    The only reason Chuck went there is because no one else wanted him.

    By the way, the list of Packer turds is a long one.

  23. tjrubleysaudible says: May 18, 2011 11:33 AM

    Glad to hear it, I love watching him play. I swear he sometimes has more tackles than the linebackers.

    Yea reading your other posts makes me believe that on the subject of turds and packing, you are definitely the expert.

    @noeffinway, @ted1sheckler

    Pretty sure that Mark Chmura was acquitted. People aren’t perfect and you can’t expect every player ever to play for the team to stay out of legal trouble. Players don’t make an organization anyway, and you’d never see something like the “Love Boat” go down in Green Bay. Especially not with a QB like Rodgers leading this team.

  26. ted1sheckler says: May 18, 2011 12:10 PM

    youboe: Nah, you won’t see the love boat going down in GB. However, you would see a hooked going down on Underwood. You’d also see girl going down on James Lofton in a stairwell. Lastly, yous see Mossy Cade going down on his Aunt. the good old Aunteater.

    To the dunce that tried and failed with the turd and packing “joke”. Give it up. Comedy isn’t your thing.

    What joke? I do believe you are the expert on packing fudge. Who finds that funny? Is it supposed to be?

    tj: You are still trying to go with that joke?

    Keep repeating it, eventually it will be funny……..

    Woodson is flat-out awesome.

    So is Revis, don’t know why there has to be decision made between the two.

    Funny thing is, we were poised to but the Jets jumped ahead of us and snatched him up.

    Whom did we end up with? Justin Harrell.

    Still, we’re World Champs, so I’ll take it.
