Green Bay Packers veteran cornerback Charles Woodson discussed the possibility of going 19-0 this season, Yahoo! Sports reports.
"We can talk about it,” Woodson said of the defending Super Bowl champion’s chances of going undefeated this year. “I don’t care. We’re 8-0 and love to be 16-0 – love to. It’s a realistic conversation now. We’re halfway there. So yeah, let’s talk about it. I’d love to go undefeated,” Woodson told Silver, his voice apparently rising. I’d absolutely love to. Not just the regular season – the whole thing.
Packers head coach Mike McCarty was a bit more cautious with undefeated talk, telling Yahoo’s Michael Silver that “once you get to double-digit wins, those types of goals become more in sight.”
The Packers currently remain as the NFL’s only undefeated team at 8-0. Their smallest margin of victory this season has been six points, as the high-scoring Green Bay squad has rolled over most team’s defenses. Only the New England Patriots have finished a regular season with a 16-0 undefeated record, which they accomplished in 2007. If the Packers remain undefeated and win the Super Bowl this year, they will become the first-ever team to go 19-0.
