Those plays were great, but you also gotta remember him getting torched by Julio Jones in Atlanta or his late hit against the Rams that put them in FG position.to tie that game in St Louis.

It wasn't the lack of plays that didn't make him elite. It was the fact that for every good play he had, he also had a bad one. He's a good safety ... and if his asking price was what Glover Quin and William Moore got he would no doubt be back in a Niner uniform. But he wanted elite money ... and he got it .. just not from us, because the front office realizes he's not elite.

Agree. Way too many boneheaded plays to be considered elite. He's a big hitter, and can easily snatch a pick on an errant pass, I'll give him that. But I don't recall all these picks he got fighting the receiver for the ball (I'd love to see proof).

His main weakness is he too often looked for the big hit instead of making the smart play, which led to better WR's using his aggressiveness against him.

Solid player no doubt, but not worth the money. Baalke did the right thing by letting him walk.

An intimidator like Goldson can help change the mentality of a young defense. Probably not an elite player but a very good safety who brings another level of physicality. Too expensive for the 49ers but might work out well for the Bucs. Wish him well.

LOL, true that! And hooked up to an oxygen tank for the 12 minutes each game that he's not on the field.
As weak as he was in coverage...he will be missed.
money > winning
i miss him already

Their job industry is different than your average person. Winning a Superbowl is the ultimate goal in football. He's already a millionaire. Now he's just more of a millionaire, instead of a millionaire with a ring.
Gonna miss him. He was a very good player for us. I don't blame him for taking the money.

What planet do you live on? Most of these dudes are in it to get paid, point blank. Winning a Super Bowl is cool but I'd wager that's secondary to probably 99% of the players in the league.

Perhaps this in a way helps us out. What will Earl Thomas be asking for when he begins seeking a new deal?

Those 1% are hall of famers.
