Dashon Goldson blows up Early Doucet with legal hit

There has been a lot of talk about the illegal helmet-to-helmet hits we have seen around the league. Dashon Goldson has occasionally been on those plays, but frequently enough, Goldson shows the effective and legal way to make a big hit to break up a play.

The Arizona Cardinals attempted to get something going on an Early Doucet crossing route, but as the GIF below shows, Dashon Goldson was having none of that. He thoroughly blew up Doucet, who had no chance of hanging on to that ball. Thankfully Doucet was able to get up and off the field. However, for those wondering about flags, see how Goldson leads entirely with his shoulder and comes in below Doucet's head. Textbook hit by The Hawk
