A 4.4 40? LOL. Come on man. That said, nobody should be hating! Some of this is just a reflection of the other guys around him as well and we should keep that in mind. We can ignore any negatives we want b/c we like him but it's not a reality on the field, esp. last year. I like how Fangio is playing him now though! We'll get better results this way IMHO.

That's what he ran at the combine. His vertical jump was also 40 inches according to NFLDraftScout.com.

You must admit that 28 is not old, at least.

I think Reid is a better athlete, though. He had an 11'2'' broad jump. That's elite explosive power. Probably why he hits so hard.

OK OK OK. Haha. 8 years ago he was fast. And I do agree...28 is not old. Perhaps I s/h said he has clearly reached his ceiling and appears to be on the decline now and will most likely get the Goldson treatment next year.

Reid is a freak. Notice how in the videos above he is making the tackles before Rogers is even moving (and he started out closer). The guy had NO hesitation and that is very encouraging for a rookie.

Our boy Eric Reid is the poster child of how to hit an opponent both HARD and SAFE at the same time per the NFL's Head of Officiating:

Reid waits to make sure he doesnt give up the big play and then closes fast. Goldson anticipated the ball and would try to create his own big play, sometimes resulting in giving up some big chunks of yardage. Each safety has their place within a defensive scheme, its more personal preference. Look at schemes like GB and the Patriots, typically not among the best defenses in terms of yardage but always near the top in turnovers, thats a DG type defense. Reid plays a safe style and doesnt seem to gamble much, once he learns the pro game in and out he might turn into more of a gambler but he doesnt seem as wired as Goldson to make the big play and sacrifice downfield integrity.

Hehe... we all know working out in shorts doesn't show you who can play football.

Both guys are fast on the field. They both made plays last week that helped win the game. Hopefully they play well all year.

I'm not even thinking about next year. Still a lot of games to play and things can change dramatically when it's all said and done.

I'm optimistic about our chances to win now.

Meanwhile Goldson got fined 30 grand for another illegal hit.

He's a dirty player, he'll get there.

Goldson is fearless. He will make clean hits but then lead with his helmet on another.
