That means that Goldson will move down to SS and Thomas will be the FS.
More coverage at FS and more hitting at SS.
Umm, that means we will be undersized at FS and SS. No thanks. Plus, Goldson has never played strong safety in his life. People act as if it's so easy to switch. Since Goldson is comfortable and improving at FS, why move him?
Per MM: Goldson CAN play SS:
S Dashon Goldson (signed through 2010) - He started slowly in his first season as a starter, but got better and better as the season progressed. He had four interceptions and three forced fumbles. He gives the 49ers versatility because of his ability to play free or strong safety.
I happen to agree with MM, Goldson could be very good as a ss because of his tackling ability. Also FS and SS are pretty interchangable in the Niners scheme. Goldson said so himeself
