How important is Dashon Goldson to Atlanta

Atlanta made a surprising free agent move in signing veteran safety Dashon Goldson. So why did the Falcons sign the 31-year-old and how important will he be this season? With rookie Keanu Neal suffering a knee injury and Kemal Ishmael being a less than attractive option as a starter, it makes sense that Dan Quinn decided to add another safety to the roster. Lets dice right into what all this means for the team.

"Yes, Ishmael has shown flashes of greatness but he hasn’t been consistent about it and for Therezie, let’s not even talk about him starting. While the “Cadillac” does make some big plays from time to time, he’s just not consistent enough to be a starting player in this NFL. Not right now at least . Goldson has had an up-and-down career, but the Falcons know exactly what he will provide the team and that’s essential when staff are unsure about a key position."

"Overall Goldson is a mixed bag. It has been proven that he can produce in key moments but it may not be his ability on the field that is most important for Atlanta."

 WHICH IS IT?

:....but when Neal comes back from injury Goldson will begin his most important role on the team. Mentoring the young rookie. Goldson will work with the young and immensely talented rookie and start to teach him the ins and outs of being a starting safety in the NFL. "

Isn't that the coaches job?

Dudes a walking personal foul, or injury waiting to happen.

 

Yall will learn

Probably not...he'll most likely be sitting his *** on the bench behind Ishmael for a couple of weeks until Neal is back.  Then he'll probably be cut.

We didn't give him a 5 year $40+ million contract like some other idiot team in the NFC South.

If he's able to get personal fouls from the bench I'll be impressed.

wasn't that for trying to trip a player running down his side of the field? that's not exactly the bench.....

No it isnt is it, its exactly the sideline... Where you can clearly still get flagged for a personal foul from.

 

Nice try jr, better luck next time?

this is really the most overused line in TATF - the "coach on the field"  bullsheot  -ONE time Roddy credited Joe Horn for helping him and TATF-ERS have been spouting this drivel ever since.

Mike Peterson/Spoon

Gonzalez/Toilolo

Osi/insert young pass rusher

blah, blah, blahblah & blah

Teaching in school is the teacher's job... but they still give out homework, which parents have to help with...

Another solid FA signing. He's going to be an adequate stop-gap at FS and he'll be great at mentoring Keanu when he gets back from his injury. We're building what appears to be a great mix of young players and older veterans with a history of success in the league. You need both.

He'll be at SS. Sorry bro, I just really ride for Allen.

Didn't he play FS most of his career?

not sure, but I know he isn't here to replace Allen.

Not only has Allen been one of the hardest workers on the team, but he's Q's "project" that worked out. I don't see Q removing his stamp for some journeyman.

You're pretty bad at the whole rival troll thing.  Some perspective...you're now arguing sideline trips here.

See you Sunday...******

I like the challenge of trying to figure out what the word behind the stars is, you just have to hope the guy spelled it right  :lol:
