Not the best in the league? Lol First team all-pro says what?
lol cant believe people still hate on Goldson
He hits hard, its not his fault the NFL is becoming gay and fining players for hitting hard. He's a great player, best safety in the league.
Anyone remember that Pats game? Dashon mercked Hernandez on a seam route and got called for hitting a defenseless receiver, although he seemed like a clean hit to me. What happens the very next play? Brady throws a quick screen to Hernandez, who somewhat alligator arms the pass, and Aldon Smith comes up with an INT. I'll take one 15 yard penalty a game from Goldson with the fear he strikes into opposing receivers.
Is he the best? Arguable. But he's definitely top3.
It wasn't a clean hit. It was an illegal hit - the flag was correct and so was the fine afterwards. The hit he put on Doucet was perfect and clean. That's an example of how to hit at any level of football.
But, I've no problem with it. He is the best safety in NFL - and he needs to continue delivering hard-hits to the players. Sometimes it will lead to helmet-to-helmet hits or hitting a defenseless player with a helmet - but the fear it puts on opposing receivers is priceless.
He will be franchised once again. The tag will be $7.5M and he is worth paying that much. I'd like a long term deal, but I've no problem with him getting a tag and playing another season under that. A 4-5 year deal of $30-35M will be great.
