Yea people just open their mouth without having any substance. He also had more tackles than Goldson. People just need to chill out. Safeties aren't flying off the market. Dahl and Skuta are clearly depth and ST. Wait till the end of FA to start panicing. Seriously it's ridiculous. THE FRONT OFFICE IS SMARTER THAN YOU so please.just give it a rest.
They hate him because he's white and undrafted. Racists. But there is evidence he could be OK:
Goldson averaged 72 total tackles the last 3 years.
Dahl averaged 75 total tackles the last 3 years
Probably signed for cheap
Started all 16 games, played ~97% of snaps quarterbacking' the Rams defense who had a great defense
Athletic: 4.53 40 time / 35" vertical / track star
Big: 6'2" 220 lbs
Agile: ran the fastest 60 yard shuttle run at the combine (6.69)
Excellent special teamer
Excellent intangibles and attitude: "I'm always open for competition," Dahl said he's OK if they sign Woodson, Reed or others.
Smart = can run the defense / called the plays / / was high school QB /
Tough: played all of 2006 with broken bones on both hands
Familiar with the Rams and the NFC West
