The Oakland Raiders certainly got pumped up with the emotional speech that Charles Woodson gave before they played their final home game against the San Diego Chargers.
Woodson, who announced his retirement just this Monday that he will be retiring after the season spoke to his teammates and this is what he had to say:
“As good as this feels man, to have this turnout, to have people cheering my name, I just want ya’ll to understand something. It’s bigger than me. It always has been bigger than me. If you understand that, you understand it’s bigger than you too. It ain’t about one individual. It never is. We can never get done what we want to accomplish with one individual.
“So I share this night with my teammates, with my brothers, you understand? Because it’s bigger than me, it’s bigger than you, but it ain’t bigger than us. So we gonna go out here tonight, and we gonna ride. This thing is about family, it’s about love and it’s about the fight to go out there and win.”
Spending 18 in the NFL, ‘C-Wood’ left a lot of memories to football fans and the future football hall-of-fame inductee will also leave something his teammates to remember him about.
With Woodson’s speech, the Raiders were able to pull off an overtime win with Sebastian Janikowski kicking a 31-yard field goal that sealed the game.
