Is Dashon Goldson the best FS in the NFL?

Can't believe folks are still talking about him. ( <---- see what I did there? )

Dashon was a very good player in his last couple seasons for us. He got the payday he wanted, so good for him. I will always say, I AM very glad that we didn't shell out that kind of contract for him. We are going to need that money soon for Kaepernick and Aldon Smith.
He thinks so....

t#Bucs DB Dashon Goldson was fined $30,000 this week, for hitting a defenseless receiver in the neck and head.
He used to be. Now Eric Reid is the best.

soon , no hitting will be allowed
Not the best but anyone who doesn't think Goldson is a top tier FS doesn't know sheeeit from toothpaste! Way too many people bash the guy but he plays physical. He plays faster than his timed speed. Has great closing speed for a player of his size. And his wing span celebration is just bad ass after he blasts someone into next week. Tell me that doesn't get you fired up. Excellent player. A few personal fouls is all people have to throw at the guy.

Goldson is a good player, but there is more to being great at the FREE safety position than hard hits.
He has too many lapses in coverage to be considered the best. Physical player, yes, but even there he too often whifs on tackles going for the big hit rather than wrapping up (a common problem in the league).

Was there a flag thrown on that play?

Show me one FS in the game who doesn't have lapses in coverage. No he's not the best but he's an all around player. For someone who hits like he does also plays very well in coverage. And you're wrong. Goldson is an excellent tackler. He might try to go for the big hit a bit too often but that's just being aggressive. Doesn't mean he's not a good tackler. Again way too much is made of his negative plays and not enough credit given to ALL the good plays he made in a 49ers uniform. Typical of this fan base though. You're either in the hall of fame or you're rotten.

Yeah, that's pretty BS, IMO. I think the league is trying to make an example of him because he has a reputation. The way I understand it, the league isn't looking to just force defenders to avoid hits to the head/neck area, but to actually lower the target below the shoulder pads/arms. The league sent out a video of hard legal hits from week one to every team. Eric Reid was the first player shown. He seems to go for a spear to the midsection with arms wide to wrap right after hit. Not a textbook tackle, but better than just throwing a shoulder, IMO.

I think we'll keep seeing these questionable flags and fines until the guys with reps for big hits start playing it extra safe. It sucks, but it's pretty normal to start extreme when trying to change a culture.

It seems, it is YOU that is taking things to extreme points-of-view,
