I used to think this too.. but then I watched shoots with some of the guys I thought he was working sloppily with and they had nothing but good things to say about him. Even Bob Holly who hates everyone likes brock and said it was his own fault in his shoot. He did have a tendency to try and hit moves he never should have been attempting (shooting star press) I think that's really when he's the least safe.
Brock has strength for weeks, that's a big part of wrestling safely. Add in Sparring and training he's gone through in the last 4 or 5 years and you get a guy that knows the difference between the pressure it takes to snap an arm or leg or break an orbital socket and the pressure it takes to complete the move and no more. he's safe.
