Proposed Deletion[edit]

I removed the proposed deletion, as Danny Woodhead's record is certainly notable, he has been the subject of multiple published works, both national and regional. --Icestryke 18:33, 30 November 2006 (UTC)

Birth date controversy[edit]

There has been multiple changes to Woodhead's birthday since his departure to New England and now it is just getting to the point of ridiculous. Multiple sources including ESPN, his Jets bio, and even the NFL's official website has listed Woodhead as being born in 1983 therefore the birth date should be kept as such. The Writer 2.0 Talk 02:31, 29 September 2010 (UTC)

You are incorrect. Please check Fox Sports and the Patriots website. The correct birthday is 1/25/1985. I could give you a list of other reliable sources if you would like to confirm this. 75.135.30.43 (talk) 15:40, 4 October 2010 (UTC)North Platte native :)

New England did not have his D.O.B. on their website when the last message was posted. I'm still a bit leery of using 1985 only because the NFL's official website has him listed as being born in 1983. At this point the only way we'll ever know for sure, IMO, is if Woodhead is asked his D.O.B. because a host of sites have him being born in '83 while others have it as '85 The Writer 2.0 Talk 18:59, 4 October 2010 (UTC)

Fools, here is the link for the patriots website http://www.patriots.com/team/index.cfm?ac=playerbio&bio=34324 . Also, it does not make sense for him to have been born in 1983. The rest of the article mentions being in high school in 2000-2003. He would have turned 20 in 2003, too old for high school athletics. His true freshman year of college was 2004. I doubt he was a 21 year old true freshman. ESPN's page for him while he was in college lists his birth date in 1985 http://sports.espn.go.com/ncf/player/profile?playerId=195038 . The NFL.com listing is wrong. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 68.43.179.148 (talk) 02:42, 5 October 2010 (UTC)

As much as we appreciate your contribution, your not making any friends by calling people fools. The Writer 2.0 Talk 03:31, 5 October 2010 (UTC)

Well you are being foolish not allowing anyone to CORRECT the birthday! —Preceding unsigned comment added by 75.135.30.43 (talk) 03:36, 5 October 2010 (UTC)

I don't care about making friends. I think it is pretty obvious that the 1983 birthday is wrong. At a minimum, the listing of his birthday being in 1983 should be removed do to its inaccuracy. I don't see why this debate continues. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 68.43.179.148 (talk) 04:01, 5 October 2010 (UTC)

A close childhood friend of Danny confirms his birthday is January 25, 1985. "We were all excited because he was going to turn 16 and be able to drive us all around before anyone else could." If that's not proof, I dont know what is...

Hey smart alec I didn't say I wouldn't allow anyone to change the date, I just wanted to make sure we had concrete evidence before we starting having an edit war left and right that was all I was trying to do. The Writer 2.0 Talk 20:22, 5 October 2010 (UTC)

Well you kept changing it back when I corrected it. What do you consider "concrete evidence"? I don't think anyone is trying to start an "edit war", just want the article to be as accurate as possible. 75.135.30.43 (talk) 04:13, 6 October 2010 (UTC)

Alright look, I'm washing my hands of this and I don't want to argue over it anymore. As it is, the horse has been beaten enough. We will change the D.O.B. to 1985. But I will say this, as I said before, I DID NOT say I wouldn't let anyone change it. The fact of the matter was that there were multiple sources saying two different things so I wanted to differentiate fact from fiction before I changed the date.

Proposed addition to "College Career"[edit]

As a senior at Chadron State having completed his final football season and while weight training in preparation for the NFL draft, Woodhead participated in the sprints and won the 55m dash at the RMAC Indoor Track Championship. His winning time was 6.47 seconds. [1]

Edit request from TimRice, 18 October 2010[edit]

{{edit semi-protected}}

Text to be changed: He has become a fan favorite in New England. One of the main reasons for this is because of his undersized frame. He shows people that you don't have to be the biggest and the best to succeed.

Suggested change: His small stature and breakout performance in 2010 has quickly made him a fan favorite in New England.

Done Thanks, Stickee (talk) 05:47, 18 October 2010 (UTC)


Edit request, 26 October 2010[edit]

{{edit semi-protected}} His actual height seems to be 5'7" (or 5'7.75"), not 5'9" as listed at nfl.com. Witness: http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/danpatrick/blog/131021/index.html

He was also just on ESPN2 discussing how he does what he does being 5'7". 98.224.219.2 (talk) 14:45, 26 October 2010 (UTC)

Edit request from Rstroud1, 21 November 2010[edit]

{{edit semi-protected}} According to the Patriots website, and the NFL website his weight is actually 195 pounds. Also his height is probably more likely to be 5'6"

Rstroud1 (talk) 23:20, 21 November 2010 (UTC)

Done I updated the infobox to match the stats on the Patriots' profile. Qwyrxian (talk) 03:36, 22 November 2010 (UTC) Nope, I take that back--I didn't see the section above this; sorry about that. I'm going to add that reference to the infobox so that this, ideally, doesn't happen again. Qwyrxian (talk) 03:38, 22 November 2010 (UTC)

Edit request from Nflplayerrep, 9 May 2011[edit]

Due to some confusion regarding who represents Danny (see the following two articles):

http://www.bostonherald.com/blogs/sports/rap_sheet/index.php/2011/04/07/patriots-rb-danny-woodhead-ditches-old-agent-as-other-agents-swoon/

http://www.bostonherald.com/blogs/sports/rap_sheet/index.php/2011/04/07/danny-woodhead-is-sticking-with-his-original-agent-just-not-his-original-agency/

I would suggest adding the following text regarding his representation:

Danny was originally represented by Chris Gittings and Dan Hoven, the founders of Hometown Sports Management. However, in April of 2011, Chris Gittings left Hometown Sports to form his own Agency, OneWest Sports Agency. Danny chose to stay with Chris Gittings as his representative, and is currently represented by OneWest Sports Agency.

I have not added the requested text, as other similar articles do not mention who the atheletes have as their agents. --Diannaa (Talk) 01:01, 23 May 2011 (UTC)

Edit request from Xalyssasaur, 12 June 2011[edit]

A picture of the athlete would be very much appreciated. Thank you.

Xalyssasaur (talk) 02:11, 12 June 2011 (UTC)

I agree, a photograph would be great. It would need to be a picture with a license compatible with the CC-BY-SA Creative Commons license, though. Most promotional photos do not meet this criterion, but a user-generated image likely would. Wikipedia:Finding images tutorial has some handy advice if you are not in a position to take one yourself, and Wikipedia:Upload lets you make it available to the world. - 2/0 (cont.) 14:09, 14 June 2011 (UTC)

Edit request on 9 February 2012[edit]

Please add information below:

On February 5, 2012, Woodhead made a catch in the second quarter of Superbowl XLVI to score a touchdown for the New England Patriots. The New York Giants went on to beat the New England Patriots 21-17. Woodhead ended the game with 4 catches for 42 yards and ran 7 times for 18 yards.

Proposed Content Removal[edit]

North Platte High's quarterback that year, Derek Enderle, also finished as the state's leading passer.

There are a few reasons why this does not belong in the article: 1. The only way they could have tied is if they finished the season with the exact same yardage, which is highly doubtful. 2. Even if he did tie with Danny Woodhead, it's still not necessary that it be mentioned because we're talking about a high school record. If Derek Enderle was well-known, then perhaps it would be worth noting. But it seems to just be an attempt to publicly mention someone that 99% of the American population has never heard of.

3. There is no citation. Who knows if Derek Enderle was even North Platte High's quarterback? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2605:6000:6442:5500:D4A4:571B:803B:7A46 (talk) 21:27, 29 September 2013 (UTC)
