MODERATOR: Rod Woodson is here with us now!
ravnmary: how has moving to safety been for you so far?
ROD WOODSON: Its a change, from the different angles, I have to make different tackles and take more command of the defense. But at the same time its a new challenge that I'm enjoying.
thecount: Hi Rod! Any teams in particular you're looking forward to coming up against?
ROD WOODSON: There isn't really any team in particular but I'm looking forward to the next 11 - we should play a lot better.
thecount: How often do you come up against players that you used to be teammates with? what is that like?
ROD WOODSON: Its quite often cause Pittsburgh has let everybody go. Its always nice to see the guys doing well in other cities and with teams other than Pittsburgh.
thecount: So what is a typical week like with the Ravens, now that the season is started?
ROD WOODSON: Its a typical 40 hour work week but probably more physical than other professional jobs.
ravnmary: do you think the offense will start to jell soon?
ROD WOODSON: Yes I believe they will. Each and every week you can see improvement with the offensive system.
ravnmary: do you think free agency has hurt or helped the players?
ROD WOODSON: I think free agency has helped players and brought better parity in the league.
thecount: how do you like the city of baltimore? how does it compare to Pittsburgh and San Fran?
ROD WOODSON: I compare it to San Fran - with the water, the night life, and the different cultural backgrounds that are in the city.
ravnmary: what is it like working with Ray Lewis?
ROD WOODSON: That's funny cause I'm actually hanging out with Ray right now. He's a fun guy who is energetic and really enjoy's football.
thecount: who do you feel most comfortable hangin out with on the Ravens squad?
ROD WOODSON: I would say Ray.
ravnmary: Will Ogden play Thursday?
ROD WOODSON: He's been practicing so I would assume that he'll be in the lineup.
thecount: how's the knee Rod?
ROD WOODSON: Its doing wonderful! Thanks for your concern.
MODERATOR: Rod has to get going so submit your final questions!
ravnmary: who has the best offense that you play?
ROD WOODSON: So far its the Rams!
