America Wanted Green Bay to Win for Charles Woodson

The Super Bowl is always filled with great stories. Some are tales of great competition while others are of awful halftime shows and fans not getting a seat after paying hundreds of dollars. Super Bowl XLV was no exception.

One of the more compelling stories of this year’s Super Bowl revolved around Charles Woodson, who – despite have to leave the game with an injury – finally achieved what he always wanted to achieve: become a Super Bowl champion.

The former Heisman winner has played his whole career at an elite level. He is a 7 time Pro Bowler and was the 2009 Defensive Player of the Year. The story of Super Bowl XLV did not have to do with Woodson’s achievements, however, but more of misfortune.

Woodson has had a history of injuries and he sustained received another one Sunday night. During the second quarter he dove after one of Ben Roethlisberger’s many errant passes. Upon landing, he looked like he was in a lot of pain.

It turned out that he had a broken collar bone. The magnitude of this did not hit the general audience until Woodson gave an interview after the game. In it he described how he emotionally broke down after receiving the news. He had been waiting his whole career for another chance at a Super Bowl ever since his Raiders were blown out by Tampa in the 2002-2003 Super Bowl. Now he had to miss the second half after finally back.

His pain was seen by TV viewers as he could not even raise his arms in celebration. The pain was obvious and the average football fan started to pull for the Packers…not for Aaron Rodgers to break out of Favre’s shadow, but for Woodson to get his Super Bowl ring.

After the game, Woodson told the media how he tried to address his team at halftime but simply could not. He was too emotional to even give a full speech. This undoubtedly inspired the Packers to get the win for him, as many Packers have discussed since, and the majority of football fans were pleased to see a guy like Woodson finally achieve his ultimate goal.
