Woodson was a great player, but I wonder if all the hits Roy dished out broke his body down. Kind of like with Marion Barber.
I could be wrong and it could have been due to Woodson retiring, but it seemed like physically he wasn't the same either. He didn't seem as explosive later on.
It could be he didn't take football as seriously as others. I do remember Parcells talking about how he would be hard on Roy and even apologized to him for being so hard on him, but Roy told him to keep it coming.
Barron does seem smarter than Roy but I see nowhere near the physical talent that Roy had.
