The first thing you noticed about Dashon Goldson was that, at the moment, he was totally alone.

No islands anywhere.

Goldson, the thick, imposing player that he is, more or less filled the stage. He stared out, his eyes dark, as if he was willing to crunch someone at any moment.

He is a special player, the Bucs believe, a home run of a signing. Talk about bang for your Bucs: Julio Jones and Marques Colston and Steve Smith and the other receivers of the NFC South will wake up with fresh bruises this morning.

Yet, you could not help but notice there was no Darrelle Revis to his left, and no Darrelle Revis to his right. The entire news conference, it should be said, was Revis free.

And there is your problem.
