Could be for two reasons.
1)He's not playing for his spot anymore. So he's not forcing things.
2)The surrounding personnel is better albeit essentially the same. So it allows him to concentrate on his job and not worry about what everyone else is or is not doing on the field.
I'm thinking this was his problem last season. When the Defense was using that hybrid 3-4 scheme alot of guys were out of position alot. So of course that kind of undisciplined play will trickle down to other players right to the Safety positions.
Don't get me wrong I'm glad that Goldson is Starting but I can see how the above issues could affect a player negatively.

whens the last time alex smith played poorly when he was healthy?
the answer is the rookie season he should never have played in.
solid 2006. solid 2-1 start to the 07 season, been injured ever since. if you want to call him injury ridden, fine, but dont call him "Alex Leaf" because he isnt Tom Brady. he never got a fair shake and you know it.
In 07 his 1st 3 games
43 for 83 (52%) 461 yards (154 ypg) 1 TD, 1 INT with 2 fumbles lost.
the 3 games he played hurt
51 for 109 (47%) 453 yards (151 ypg) 1 TD, 3 INT's with 3 fumbles lost.
He was just as bad when healthy as he was when hurt. The 2-1 record just sugar coated it.
Barry Simms, Mark Roman (although playing better this season so far), Adam Synder, David Baas (dont thing he's our future guard, bust), Moran Norris (I just dont think he's the hammer made out to be)...Allen Rossum needs to turn up the volume and also include Kentwan Balmer
