it's more of "now that he's not a niner he's trash". the truth is that dashon is a great player. he doesn't have the coverage skills of eric reid but he is a better/more sure tackler than reid. i would still take reid over goldson but lets not pretend goldson is garbage now because he's on a different team

a better tackler than reid,, hahah,, at least one of you believes that! no one is pretending, he is garbage and we are better off because of it

He's a good safety and I liked him a lot when he was on the team. I wouldn't call him a "great player." He made too many mistakes and extended too many drives with unnecessary roughness penalties and late hits. I think Reid is an upgrade. I think Reid's tackling skills are actually better than Goldson's and I think Reid is better in coverage. I think Reid's going to be in the conversation for DROY.

i know i sound off the wall here(imagine that),,, i can already picture him as a great great teacher and mentor for young players down the road
i always thought goldson was overrated.

his big hits were sensational though

f**king planted doucet

reid has missed his share of tackles this year. he is getting better as the season progresses. goldson didn't miss many tackles. what i mean by that is when he got his hands on you, you weren't going anywhere.

the problem with goldson in that regard (and something that reid excels at) is taking the correct angle. goldson took horrible f**king angles and so there were many times where he didn't even get a chance at the tackle. reid rarely takes poor angles
I dont think anyone really thought Goldson was the best FS in the NFL. To me, he was product of the system. He was a hard hitter, but never wrapped up for tackles. He may be a slight better at that then Reid, but not much better.

Earl Thomas is better, and I hate saying it. I would take Weddle, Eric Berry, Michael Griffin all over him, not sure exactly if they are all FSs.

But if Reid isnt ROY mid way on those stupid award shows, I will riot. He is one of the best rooks this year, he and Kiko Alonso are the best 2.

Gholdson's "highlight" hits make him seem better than he actually is.

I'm not going to declare Goldson trash now that he's not a Niner, because he's a damn good free safety.

But Reid is a better tackler. Goldson has more devastating hits, but Reid appears quicker to the ball and is more consistent in laying the lumber.
I liked Goldson when he was a Niners but never thought he was even in the conversation for best FS. I didn't think he was worth giving a bunch of money to. He made great hits but seemed slow and wasn't consistent against the pass. I have nothing against Goldson and wish him the best in Tampa. Everyone is comparing our rookie Reid to him and Goldson is a 7 year vet.. I think Reid has already shown in just 8 games that we won't miss Goldson and might already be an upgrade. Reid will most likely be an upgrade in the future
I think it's pretty obvious at this point that Dashon is the best. Everyone else is battling for a very distant second.
