We have addressed the Dashon issue... several times... 2 years ago, last year, this year again. And our back end isn't our achille's heel, okay? 4th in pass defense. The DBs were doing fine. Let's not overreact to a few big plays in the playoffs, just because they are fresher to our memory. All teams give up big plays. We actually gave up the 3rd fewest passes of 20+ yards this year, and the tenth fewest passes of 40+ yards. I don't see how pass D has suddenly become our weakness.

I think my worries come from liking the guy and having images of Boldin catching balls in the SB. I'm curious though how anyone could say the defensive backfield is not the issue we should be most worried about. We can't be run on so clearly the weaker part must be the pass. Given its a pass heavy league, I can't help but have some worries that getting worse in the backfield would seriously damage this teams immediate chances.

Yeah, I love me some rudyZ, but I am not on the "pass cover D is fine" wagon. I do think we have the personnel and talent (except for Whitner's sorry arse)... I just hate how that talent is utilized. It's often the same Manusky, bend-don't-break crap (soft 10 yard CB cushions)... but it works more often than not, so everyone just looks the other way. That, and Carlos Rogers as a NCB is teh suxxorz. We could be so much more, IMHO... and quite frankly, I have learned to despise the 3-4 scheme over these years. Sure, we hang around the top each year, statistically... but I think our personnel is just that good.

I think our secondary is average, with average talent. Could definitely be upgraded. As much as I love tbrown, his height is a major concern. Bigger wide outs will just demolish him if he doesn't have help. Rogers is adequate, but not great. Cully has his moments, but still inconsistent. Whitner is terrible and coverage, but good against the run and a leader on d. He can definitely be upgraded though.

I don't mind the bend but don't break so much any more, because I expect us to field a top 5 offense next year. The problem is, we were a break but don't bend team last year. We were absolutely dreadful in red zone defense last year. People scored at will once they got to the 20. That needs to be corrected.our strength was that we didn't let people into the red zone that often.

As great as our coaching staff is, they absolutely have to work on their red zone efficiency and play calling. It is one of the worst in the league (especially offensively - but the defense is not immune and could use a boost as evidenced by last years red zone efficiency numbers).

But Franklin wasn't close to an all pro. And we had a starter at DE who we planned to move over. Behind Goldson we've got guys who haven't played more than a handful of plays at S between them in their entire careers.

Mind you I'm OK with Goldson going at the price he's asking, but the Franklin departure was similar, but not nearly the same.

No I think Goldson is way more valuable than people thought Franklin was. The difference is we knew we had at least an average replacement in Soap. We have no idea how good Spillman/Robinson is. the potential dropoff is HUGE!

I want him back but I dont see it happening. I'm doing a mock with him signing elsewhere. Time to start facing reality we can't keep everyone on this team Crying or Very sad

Pre Harbs he had 51 TD and 53INT with Harbs 30 and 10. A 3:1 ratio!!! thats dramatically different. Alex has never been close to that.




What do you make of his 8 to 1 TD/INT ratio in his last 6 games of the 2010 season? If THAT is not a trend PRECEDING Harbaugh's arrival, then nothing is. Alex dramatically changed his style of play himself, and that had nothing to do with Harbaugh. Look it up, it's pretty well documented. Statistical anylisis, interviews, there's a lot of them.

My whole point of this was about Goldson, really... in that he benefitted a lot from playing on our defense. I just think he gets too much credit, to be honest. I just can't understand how a guy on a depleted offense can get less credit than a guy on a loaded defense. And can you seriously say that "Goldson has changed the mindset that offenses have had to take against the Niners when they play"?! Seriously? If one player has to be singled out for changing the way teams play us, it has to be Aldon Smith. Our defense was merely top 15 with most of these guys. But when Aldon came in, the pressure he brought off the edge totally changed the dynamic of our defense, increasing the impact other players had on the game. He almost single-handedly made our secondary better. Those 33 sacks, and several QB hits and hurries, are all plays that an opposing QB could have made something out of. It's incredible production from one guy that made all the other guys around him look better. And I don't even have to mention the other guys stepping up, like Bowman, Rogers, Culliver, Whitner, all taking major step forwards in their career, from being college players, or back-ups, or disappointments on other teams. Meanwhile, Goldson is probably the player who has shown the least progression. Our pass D improved from 24th to 16th to 4th... not because of Goldson specifically. He was a good player who remained a good player. I just don't see how he can seriously state a case for being paid 8 millions a year. I want to be able to pay Aldon when his turn comes. You can't do that if you're overpaying other players. Look at the priorities of this defense, what makes it works: Aldon, Justin, Pat, Navorro... at best, and I don't believe he is, Dashon would be the fifth best player on that defense. You can't survive in this league if you're paying your fifth best player 8 millions a year.


I agree that there is no case for Goldson wanting 8 mil per. If it will take that then he has to go. I dont see him getting that on the market either so maybe there is still a chance to bring him back at what they are willing to offer him. I would at the least like to see them put a current offer out there and if he decides to walk then its whatever, but i would hope that the market determines he isnt an 8 mil guy and he comes back at a truer price with the opportunity to play on a top defense and be a contender for years to come.

As for Alex we just flat out disagree, but thats fine. He was more than serviceable for this team the last couple of seasons and I think he changed minds of many people around the league.

People are over reacting over our secondary a little. Ya we let up some big plays in the playoffs but our secondary was very good all year. We deff had some issues in the playoffs an were exploited a little bit but with Gholdson back this unit is fine with exception of needing another solid CB. With out Dashon we find our selfs with a huge whole because he is arguably our best player in the secondary an finding some one to replace him wont be easy. Even if we draft a FS to do so chances are he wont play at a high anuff level in year 1, not like a CB who are usually more capable of playing at a higher level early. I think Rogers gets released if Gholdson is back an or if they add a CB this offseason/draft.

We need Gholdson back badly having him gives us a great potential secondary again an Whitner looks like he is mybe entering a down side in his career he just doesnt look good when he drops back in coverage. So we could be in need of two S if Dashon walks something that will hard to replace.

Gholdson is deserving of 7-8 mill contract with out a dought he holds more value to us then he would most other teams but he surely has been a top 3-5 FS the last couple years. Ill be very dissapointed if we dont make a strong offer. I dont want to overpay for him eathier but if you are offering 7 an he wants 8 whats the 1 mill difference is to little to lose such a big piece.

As for the trend, i'm speaking about how from 05-09 he had 37TD and 43INT a rating no higher than 81.5 and a comp. percentage no higher than 60.5, )


Well thanks for clarifying what you were talking about. But that doesn't constiture a "trend" to me. He had a horrible rookie year. So frikken what? He shouldn't have been playing that early he clearly wasn't ready. Then he had a vast improvement in his second year. So there's a trend. That was 2005 and 2006. He ruined his shoulder very early in 2007, sat out all of 2008 and was just getting back into shape in 2009 after not playing for most of two seasons. You can go ahead and be disppointed in his lack of production from 2007 to 2009, but there no way there's any "trend" there. What there was was two injury years and one recovery year.

And nice of you to throw in his 1 TD, 11 Int rookie year into a 5 season total to try to make a point. Now if you're willing to give up your prejudices and really look at "trends" his TD/Int ratio got better every single season except for season 3 where he only played a few games and most of those were after he could barely lift his arm over his head. Oh if you're still open to looking at trends and since you're the one that brought up QBR you might note that his QBR has gotten better every single year in the league except for that injury year. Now that IS a trend.

So if there is a trend that we can see, accounting for the injury to his throwing shoulder, it's that he has gotten consistently better every year. NO surprise then that his best years happen to be his most recent seasons.


http://www.nfl.com/player/alexsmith/2506340/profile

Your kidding me right? You speak of my prejudices and you want to throw out every year of mediocre play for any reason you can come up with? He was a rookie and so we should omit that year.(although RGIII and Luck had good rookie years, but lets just ignore that when we look back at guys like that.) He was hurt and then sat out the next year so lets give another year to get into shape? Isnt that what the offseason is for? To stay sharp? He is a professional. His job is to produce when called upon. He didnt do that at a sustained level that would be considered anything other than mediocre until the end of 2010. He then sustained it in 2011 and again in 2012.

As for his TD to INT ratio:

'05(9 games)- (1td/11int) .090 td/int ratio
'06- (16td/16int) 1td/int ratio (much better improvement)
'07(7 games)-(2td/4int) 0.5 td/int ratio not an improvemen, but he did only play 7 games. You still have to factor it in.
'08- 0 games played
'09(11 games played)- (18td/12 int) 1.5 td/int ratio (best yet)(but using your logic we have to ignore this year right? I mean he was 2 years removed from the shoulder injury. See how that works both ways?
'10(11 games played)- (14td/10int) 1.4 td/int ratio (that would be a regression from the previous year. Not by much though.)
'11- (17td/5int) 3.4 td/int ratio (more than double his best performance in this catergory to date.)
'12(10 games) - (13td/5int) 2.6 TD/Int ratio

When I look at this I see a sustained level of success that would be considered good or above mediocre from '11 and '12. And really if you lump in the end of '10 too.

Before any of that there was minimal success let alone sustained levels of what one would say was good.

His career average is 1.28. Translate that into a full season at his career trends and he would throw for 20td and 16int. That is the very definition of mediocre. If you think that is good QB play then we can no longer discuss this because we have totally different levels of expectations for a QB in the NFL.

If you ask me you have the biased opinion(not going to use prejudices because its just not that serious) as you seem to be making up the rules as you go. Picking and choosing what years to use and leave out and for what reasons you can attribute Alex's mediocre seasons.

The debate began about Harbaughs impact on Alex's play. Not here is why I hate Alex, because I dont hate Alex, I thought he was more than serviceable, but if you cant see that then it is what it is. You keep looking for reasons to justify your stance, I'm not telling you that you need to.

Have a good day.

As for the trend, i'm speaking about how from 05-09 he had 37TD and 43INT a rating no higher than 81.5 and a comp. percentage no higher than 60.5, )


Well thanks for clarifying what you were talking about. But that doesn't constiture a "trend" to me. He had a horrible rookie year. So frikken what? He shouldn't have been playing that early he clearly wasn't ready. Then he had a vast improvement in his second year. So there's a trend. That was 2005 and 2006. He ruined his shoulder very early in 2007, sat out all of 2008 and was just getting back into shape in 2009 after not playing for most of two seasons. You can go ahead and be disppointed in his lack of production from 2007 to 2009, but there no way there's any "trend" there. What there was was two injury years and one recovery year.

And nice of you to throw in his 1 TD, 11 Int rookie year into a 5 season total to try to make a point. Now if you're willing to give up your prejudices and really look at "trends" his TD/Int ratio got better every single season except for season 3 where he only played a few games and most of those were after he could barely lift his arm over his head. Oh if you're still open to looking at trends and since you're the one that brought up QBR you might note that his QBR has gotten better every single year in the league except for that injury year. Now that IS a trend.

So if there is a trend that we can see, accounting for the injury to his throwing shoulder, it's that he has gotten consistently better every year. NO surprise then that his best years happen to be his most recent seasons.

Your kidding me right? You speak of my prejudices and you want to throw out every year of mediocre play for any reason you can come up with? He was a rookie and so we should omit that year.(although RGIII and Luck had good rookie years, but lets just ignore that when we look back at guys like that.) He was hurt and then sat out the next year so lets give another year to get into shape? Isnt that what the offseason is for? To stay sharp? He is a professional. His job is to produce when called upon. He didnt do that at a sustained level that would be considered anything other than mediocre until the end of 2010. He then sustained it in 2011 and again in 2012.

As for his TD to INT ratio:

'05(9 games)- (1td/11int) .090 td/int ratio
'06- (16td/16int) 1td/int ratio (much better improvement)
'07(7 games)-(2td/4int) 0.5 td/int ratio not an improvemen, but he did only play 7 games. You still have to factor it in.
'08- 0 games played
'09(11 games played)- (18td/12 int) 1.5 td/int ratio (best yet)(but using your logic we have to ignore this year right? I mean he was 2 years removed from the shoulder injury. See how that works both ways?
'10(11 games played)- (14td/10int) 1.4 td/int ratio (that would be a regression from the previous year. Not by much though.)
'11- (17td/5int) 3.4 td/int ratio (more than double his best performance in this catergory to date.)
'12(10 games) - (13td/5int) 2.6 TD/Int ratio

When I look at this I see a sustained level of success that would be considered good or above mediocre from '11 and '12. And really if you lump in the end of '10 too.

Before any of that there was minimal success let alone sustained levels of what one would say was good.

His career average is 1.28. Translate that into a full season at his career trends and he would throw for 20td and 16int. That is the very definition of mediocre. If you think that is good QB play then we can no longer discuss this because we have totally different levels of expectations for a QB in the NFL.

I thought this was the Dashon Goldson thread? It's getting almost unbearable for me to open any of these threads, because when I do I have to wade through all this Alex Smith Bull [inappropriate/removed]. He's not even on our team people. LET IT GO.
