Well, the entire defense played great and not giving up the long bombs had a lot to do with our defense constantly getting good pressure on Warner (except during the 3rd quarter, where they promptly started to get bigger gains), but for me something else was important in this game:
There was no play where he screwed up so bad that the Cardinals could score
Remember, this was his first game as a starter. And he did not play that much before, as he was dinged up during extend parts of the past few seasons. So he lacks playing experience, which could lead to some mistakes and screw-ups.
However, the problem with a Safety screwing up is that usually there is no one left behind him to bail him out. So I was worried a bit that Goldson may make a few mistakes and that one of those mistakes may give a big scoring play.
But as I see it, he was steady, did his job most of the time and he did not have a big meltdown play that directly lead to points (I still have nightmares regarding that Dolphins touchdown Mark Roman gave up....). Which means he had an encouraging start and I hope he will show us his ball-hawking skills in a game soon, preferably with an interception or two against Seattle next week
