Dashon Goldson hires tackling coach

I guess Dashon got tired of the hit to his wallet. I guess it's a better approach than changing your last name to Hitner lol.

Unless he wants concussions, I don't think so.
Goldson reverting to textbook tackling takes away a lot of what makes him an intimidating force.
I kinda like it when players leave the 49ers and regress. There's probably an argument he's just changing to fit the direction the league is taking, but it just gives me even more faith in the coaches and FO.

he got 2 concussions. he wrapped up and was a solid tackler all season.

Maybe Goldson is just paying Mike Tolbert to give him a concussion so he can adjust his playing style like Reid.
500k in fines!?

He tried to tackle Tolbert with his earhole. Not a good strategy against that bowling ball.

lost in all of this is that he held football clinics in the offseason that emphasized form tackling
Even though he did make some boneheaded plays it was always fun to see him fly in your screen and lay someone out. He always brought it and WRs knew it

the other team also knew he could be counted on to extend at least two drives for them
Back to basics is tried and true.

Our FO made a GREAT decision not resigning him.

And now, he's got the wake-up call and is addressing it.

yes,, if anyone ever had a doubt about whether or not we made the right decision in dump him, him hiring a tackling coach should put that one to bed
