Now I've been impressed with Reid so far but I don't care what anyone says, we could have used Dashon out there last night! All that penalty baiting that Seattle players were doing was going to get called anyway. Atleast Dashon would have fu(ked somebody up in the process!
But he was a liability in coverage. I swear, it's like you guys just totally brain dumped the entire second half of last season. The occasional highlight reel hit doesn't change any of that, and I'll be the first to say that even as a rookie Reid>Goldson in coverage.
We needed better coverage from our DB's and that's why Reid was drafted. Besides, Tampa Bay's pass defense looks like crap right now so I don't get why Goldson is even being mentioned.
