I went to the Falcons game in 2007, which was disappointing on many fronts but none more than seeing Goldson fly all over the field on special teams and then not being allowed to see the field at least in nickel situations.
That, ad nausem, was really one of Nolan's BIGGEST problems. He wanted these rookies to adapt to what he wanted...but he never gave them the shot necessary to learn.
I'm glad Mike did what he did. It gave the kid confidence to go out and let it loose. I think our safety problems just may be problems no more...
