From time to time we’ll come across articles written by friends of the site and they are so well done, we just have to share. The latest article is from Turron Davenport over at Press Coverage Sports. Continue reading to see Turron talk about how Dashon is making his mark. Also be sure to check out more from Turron over at Press Coverage Sports.
Dashon Goldson has set himself up as one of the best safeties in the NFL. He has the range to cover a lot of ground as a free safety. Wide Receivers who play against the 49ers know that Goldson will be in the vicinity to lay a big time hit on them. There are few safeties in the NFL that hit as hard as Goldson. Last year was a breakout year for him to some but I saw some things in Goldson a few years ago that told me that he would be a good player.
The first time I really saw it was in Houston against the Texans back in 2009. The 49ers lost the game but Dashon had nine tackles. He also had a forced fumble in that game. That play was actually ...

Denver, New England and Green Bay each have a future Hall of Fame Quarterback on their roster. This weekend is going to have some great QB play.
The Wildcard round brought us some pretty bad games. The marque quarterbacks were on a bye so this week should be a lot better.
Here are the quarterbacks and how they stack-up
1) Manning - Peyton Manning is the MVP of the League...
The San Francisco 49ers decided on a little healhty competition at the kicker position in an effort to light a fire under David Akers, who apparently righted the ship, beating out Billy Cundiff to kick in Saturday night's playoff matchup with the Green Bay Packers.
Head coach Jim Harnbaugh made his decision Thursday, but Akers isn't in the clear beyond Saturday. The team...
Justin Smith will be on an NFL field for the first time in four weeks, since he suffered a partially torn triceps tendon against the Patriots. Jim Harbaugh said he expects Smith to start Saturday’s game against the Packers.
Smith has still been limited in practice, and it is unknown at what percentage of strength he will be playing at this weekend. Considering he ended his extremely...
The San Francisco 49ers expect all players on their active
roster, including defensive lineman Justin Smith and linebackers Aldon Smith
and Patrick Willis, to play during tonight’s NFC Divisional round matchup
against the Green Bay Packers.
Smith has garnered the most attention of all the players
listed on the 49ers injury report. The defensive tackle had been out since he
Everywhere David Akers goes, he’s beset by revelers. When he leaves his home. When he goes to pick up his dry cleaning. When he walks his dog. When he meets with his dealer in the park. The dancers are there. So it should be no surprise that they are waiting when he came out to warm up in the second half. He had to shoo them away. Because he must always shoo them away. The dancers...
The San Francisco 49ers are sticking with struggling kicker David Akers for Saturday night's NFC playoff game against Green Bay. The 49ers signed veteran Billy Cundiff last week to challenge Akers for the job, but Akers won out during practices the past nine days. "I think, suffice it to say, we feel confident in David giving us the best chance to win," San Francisco...
As Coach Harbaugh ponders what happened in 2012 and looks forward to the 2013 season, I believe there are three resolutions he needs to make with the team to help bring them to a better place in 2013. First of all it's time we make it back to a Super Bowl. It's been 18 years already, and as well all know, the 49ers are unique in that they've been to five Super Bowls...

Kaepernick played very little in the first meeting between these teams. He will be a big focus of the Green Bay defense on Saturday
Some would simply look at this season’s week one matchup between the Green Bay Packers and San Francisco 49ers to start breaking down this upcoming Saturday’s divisional playoff game. But each of these teams has made a sizeable change between...
This evening’s divisional playoff game features the Green Bay Packers taking on the San Francisco 49ers. Weather will not play a role in tonight’s contest. Afternoon high temperatures of the low 50′s under sunny skies will give way to a clear night with temperatures in the mid-40′s.

Green Bay Packers at San Francisco 49ers
The 49ers and Packers both have great championship traditions but only one can move onto the NFC Championship. The 49ers come into the game as the favorites and enjoy the home-field advantage, but also have to face the healthiest version of the Green Bay Packers since the first day of the season. Charles Woodson, Clay Matthews, and Donald...

This could very well be one of the finer divisional weekends in NFL history depending on how the NFC matchups end up, and this game tops them all.
San Francisco and Green Bay are two of the more prestigious franchises in the NFL, and they have had several thrilling finishes in the postseason.
One that comes to mind would be the game where Jerry Rice fumbled and...
