and you based that off?
and he frequently has that problem? He got voted to the Probowl Starter by his peers, from players to coaches. Something your favorite player will probably never sniff.
He based it off the fact that TB looked at him and pointed while speaking to him, pretty much saying why did you run forward? The announcers even touched on it that Goldson left his coverage assignment and it was the main reason that TD happened.
Sounds like your favorite player is getting criticized and you dont like it. I like Goldson but I admit he gets too overzealous and freelances during zone schemes, he isn't Polomalu - he doesnt have that kind of freedom. He also takes poor angles on the majority of plays, yes he got voted to the pro-bowl but its because he played the defensive scheme very well. Our coverage scheme will allow any half talent player to pick up overthrown INTs because we put a bracket squeeze on all underneath routes.
so based off TB reaction you feel it was Goldson's fault? Did you even notice Goldson's reaction? probably not...I'm not surprised though.... again, I'm just saying this because you brought Brown's reaction, but didn't mention Goldson.
Brown gingerly point to Goldson... where as Goldson looked frustrated and showed up Brown on the field, looked like he wanted to beat his ass... Usually our players don't make scenes like that, so I would think Goldson might have done his job on the play.
as far as the commentary crew, they don't know the scheme and I believe at the end of pointing out that Goldson went to go after Cobb, that it might have been a miscommunication issue on both sides. (I'll watch it again tonight)
as far as the bolded part..lol....any half-talented player right?
its not about my "favorite" player getting criticized, I like all our players... its when folks feel the need to unjustly undervalue our players to make a point. They will make excuses as to why other players on our teams or others...excuses as to why they are considered good..where as they will have excuses as to why their *favorite* player is doing not so well or not considered Elite.
