As a goalie you'd be ok if your #5 defender jumped off best player of the other team to let him walk in on you?

Not just take a shot mind you, but walk in alone.

As a goalie you want them to take the pass during a generic 2v1, but i'd much, much rather have my D have the situational awareness to take away the passing lane and be aggressive enough to force a decision right away?

Maybe thats just me.
