Dashon Goldson blows up Early Doucet with legal hit

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
