That's a team player.
Great video - thanks for sharing. The future looks very bright with Reid back there. He's just getting started but you can already really see the impact he's making. He's learning from Whitner, too. I wish the greatest Niners DB of all time, Ronnie Lott, was around him full time as part of the team to teach him the NFL ropes. Lott could also help Reid with solid tackling advice to avoid future concussions, etc. One thing about Lott: He hit hard but he did a lot of it with his shoulders (vs. head on w/ head down leading w/ the helmet, like some of these guys recently) and he relied on timing and good angles. Why can't we bring Lott in as a full-time advisor/coach for the DBs?
Damn I like that guy. Please stay healthy and remain a niner for a long time.

Why is it that a franchise with such a rich history has tended to keep their greats at arms-length essentially. Tom Brady even visited with Montana, had dinner with him...etc, I wish the organization could get some more of these former players involved, if for no other reason than to show the level of success that can be achieved and share their own experiences...etc.

Phoenix, this is the bigger question towards what I was alluding to in my above post mentioning Lott. If I was a 49ers beat writer who was close to the team, this would be a story I'd do some investigative work on and get to the bottom of. Not only Lott, but think about all the other Niner greats who seem like they could really offer incredible insight (and coaching) from their successful past experiences, especially to these younger players on the team. Rice for the WR spot (Niners need all the help they can get at that position...and, who wouldn't listen to the greatest WR of all time?)...Young for the QBs (he's very smart and obviously very well-spoken, knows the game and the QB position like the back of his hand)...Brent Jones for the TEs (again, very well spoken, etc.)...Keena Turner for the LBs...there's more, and a lot of these guys are still right here in the Bay Area. The only person from the team's past glory years coaching this team is Rathman. I do wonder if for some reason the Yorks want to completely separate the past from the current and future teams. If this is true, what a shame and what a waste. We know about the friction between Eddie D. and his sister. However, Jed was around the Niners a lot during his younger years w/ Eddie D., so he may have a different outlook than his mom and dad...maybe he could eventually bridge the past players with the current/future players going forward. Who knows...I can only hope.
i really liked that tackle he made on pierre thomas (i think) where he eluded blocker and made the tackle. i remember seeing that in real time and if he had gotten away, it would have been an even larger gain

this.
He is big, fast, and just athletic.

but man, he just seems like a good dude. Another stand up player we drafted.

he needs to do like what Dashon used to with running backs... Goldson would shoot in like a missile from the secondary but go very low...and just blow players up.

Reid seems like he wants to do the perfect legal hit.

Just go low Eric.

This is Reid's rookie year though so I don't expect him to be able to read the run that fast like Goldson did in his prime.
