I was a tight end in Highschool for the #2 school in the country (Long Beach Poly Highschool), and had scouts at my games, then i tore my rotary cuff and ended my "career". Please dont assume things you dont know.

The fact that he was the secondary cover man on those plays alone proves that it was his fault. he should have been aware of his corners and recognized that they were in position to make a play. In stead he tried to go superstar mode and take plays that weren't his.

This all day long. Like I said, he's a good player, but he's not a top safety and he's got plenty of room to improve. Overplaying is most definitely something to improve on.
he was watching the QB eyes....

its funny, I wonder what some of you folks would be saying if he took his eyes off the QB, and looked out for his CB who most likely would be trailing the reciever...and lets just say that Terrell Brown tripped alittle bit...and the ball just landed in front of Goldson or heck the ball lands in the receiver's hands which then Goldson tackles.

OMG GOLDSON WHAT ARE YOU DOING THE INT WAS RIGHT THERE!!!!! OVERRATED!!!! LAZY!!!! bla bla bla.
here is the Video.... LOOK AT :40 of the video... Goldson had a good read on Eli and took a perfect Angle...the Giants receiver bailed out on the play, Brown continued.. (what if Brown followed the receiver instead???)... how hard is it to understand this s**t?

This this this. Nicks f**ked everything up by bailing on the route. He was probably scared of getting lit up by Goldson. It was just unfortunate that Brown ended up colliding with Dashon. That play also sort of lost us the NFCCG
The Giants receiver made a mistake. Instead of continuing to go to the inside where the ball was thrown, he made another break and went up field looking for a long TD pass. Usually Brown would keep the receiver to the outside. Goldson would have the inside. In between them the receiver would be covered which ever way he goes. Both Brown and Goldson saw the mistake and went for the ball. Don't think it's anyone's fault on that. Should have been an easy INT and most likely a long run back.

This is depressing. You guys shouldn't post vid from the Giants' game. Should have won that game. Our defense was playing lights out. Their best game of the year.

I'm glad we didn't sign him to an extension. Prove yourself at the pro-bowl level one more year and then get paid. One year is not enough to land a $8M per year contract.

An elite safety would have noticed the bright red uniform of # 25 and not try being the hero by hogging the INT. His ego and greed for the ball wouldn't allow Brown to make the big play... so looks like no one gets the big play.

Don't mean to nitpick Goldson esp. for trying to make a play but this play is exactly like in baseball where there is a popup in the short outfield where a Shortstop turns and runs with his back to home plate focusing on the catch over his shoulder the entire way while an outfielder with better visual perspective and positioning is also approaching. It's a bang bang play but Goldson is the only one who has the entire play in front of him and can either break on the ball or back off if Brown has the beat on it. Period. Brown never saw it coming and Goldson was playing for the INT. It happens... just happy Goldson was making a break on the ball rather than the WR. The fact that it happened twice in the same game? He needs to learn from his mistakes or communicate with his DB's on like-plays.

PS: The good news is that he read the play correctly but unfortunately he JUMPED while moving forward to make the INT and therefore, couldn't have pulled up even if he wanted too and Brown got the blindside brunt of it. No need to jump there VD...feet on the ground and that's an INT and even then, may have been able to run through it altogether, make the INT, run it back and avoid the collision altogether.

The biggest issue I had on this play is what happened next...Brock's nice outside coverage (off the bench) on a simple post route TD to Manningham with ZERO inside S help.

Sorry, I had no problem with him going after that INT. It was just an unfortunate play - and a clear indication that it wasn't our day.

I like Goldson, but I'm not willing to hand down $8M to a safety who has had one really good year. He can play at with the tag - prove it one more year - and then get paid that contract. Nothing wrong with that - and I believe that's how Niners brass felt

Smith wasn't asking for Manning money either. Goldson is an aging safety that had one good year that wants top tier pay. Smith is more important to the team than Goldson, sorry if you don't like hearing it, but it is a fact boner.

No, I pretty well agree with your first sentence. Just said that to see if someone was gonna come outta their hole and play.

For the latter part, I wouldn't be upset in the least if Goldson has another good year and we lock him up to a long-term deal. But like you said... right now? Best thing for the team is to let him play under the 6 mil tag.

Dashon is better at his position, than Alex is at his. The 49ers chose to franchise him at top Free Safety salary, where as they gave Alex one contract, which can very easliy turn into a one year deal....they did this while they still went else where to look for replacements or competition. They didn't do the same with Dashon...they could've easily not franchised him and let him walk and search else where....there were other free agent safeties out there, or they could've replaced him with ( lol...like some at the Webzone would tell you) Spillman, Colin Jones, Rogers....or maybe they shouldn't have let Reggie Smith or Madokie Williams go....since you know...it is all about our front 7 and we can easily just put someone else in there.

Also, Goldson was voted to start for the NFC ProBowl by his peers, other coaches around the league, and fans around the league.....Alex has never been one in his career.....and is still questioned by fans, the national media, and other current players on publicly on national TV...as a legitimate Starting QB in this league.

I wonder what would happen if you asked another NFL team...would you like Alex Smith to replace your starting QB? or would you Like a Starting ProBowl Safety?...lol...I think even Ravens would still take Goldson, and just play him along side Reed...than rather replace Flacco (who played better than Alex in their game).

oh wait, other teams did have a chance to get Alex Smith this offseason.
