I wasn't quite as impressed with Reid. He made some good plays, but he also missed at least 1 tackle, plus I saw him out of position on another. The missed tackles on the secondary surprised me the most. Our pash rush against a weak OL also disappointed me. Aaron Rodgers had a ton of time to pass the ball. I guess considering that, I am surprised the 49ers only gave up 28 points. Also, where is our red zone defense? Defense plays well when the opponent if +50 yards away, and then tends to collapse when the team gets inside our 20. I am trying to figure out if we still have a good defense or not.
You were not impressed with Reid? Hahaha. Outside of the one missed tackle he got my game ball on D. Guy was a stud out there. Have no idea what you watched.
Yeah I think he stood out as the best player on our defense today, actually. Seemed like he was the only guy who could tackle in the open field, and he did it by using his shoulder and hitting like a truck.
Yes, Kap, Boldin and VD deserve the spotlight, but Reid's performance made me very happy. Considering how we played today and that we traded up to get him, I think we found ourselves a safety for the next decade.
