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).


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 Goldson is a very good safety all around and much better in coverage than a lot of people on this board would give him credit for. He's solid in coverage, makes plays on the ball, almost always a sure tackler, and in my opinion the hardest hitting safety in the entire league. Dude is a beast.

who ends up costing a team with drive extending penalties. he also can not tackle straight up one on one. he is a x niner for good reasons
the league may be considering suspending Goldson for his helmet to helmet hits.

How many drive extending penalties did we have last night chief? You gonna demand all those players get kicked off the team as well. Aldon Smith has had how many personal foul calls in his young career? Does he deserve to be an X niner. Money was the only reason Goldson is an X Niner. You know dick.

Dashon Goldson's suspension is subject to appeal, and that appeal must be filed within 3 business days.
Finally some positive news after our week 2 beatdown! He was suspend on an illegal hit and because he's a repeat offender!
anyone got a video of the hit on sproles?
at least he's not the one getting concussed.
Glad he's gone.
pansy ass league.
