Write it down. Reid has surpassed ex-49ers safety Dashon Goldson. Through six games, he leads the team with three interceptions, has made clutch tackles, and hasn't even been flagged ONCE for unsportsmanlike conduct, pass interference, or a helmet-to-helmet hit - junk that Goldson was notorious for. Whereas Goldson would regularly (and still does) hit guys high with his helmet, Reid's adapted to the NFL's new rules and lowered his target, leading with his shoulder instead. I also like that Reid is more assignment driven and a better communicator with his secondary brethren. Even Harbs has praised the rookie's play:
"He’s blessed with a lot of ability. He’s very sharp. He learns well. He doesn’t repeat mistakes. He’s not an error-repeater. Once he does something (wrong), he gets coached on it and you don’t see that same mistake again."
I believe it. Reid also credits Donte Hitner with helping him transition to the NFL. If you listen to Reid in post-game interviews, he comes off as very humble, mature, and professional. This kid has a very bright future with the Red & Gold.
