Goff had a career year with coach Sean McVay and the Rams in 2018. He was so much more than a system QB, as he finished eighth in the NFL in clean-pocket big-time throw percentage (5.45) on the year.
This has been Goff’s best season under head coach Sean McVay. Compared to last season, Goff threw for 884 more yards, four more touchdowns and raised his completion percentage two more points. Additionally, he also threw five more interceptions this season (12).
Goff has proven he’s beyond the “system quarterback” label with his accurate passes both in the pocket and on the run, and his ability to lead an offense under pressure. Some defenses (New Orleans, Chicago, Philadelphia, Green Bay) showed there is still a lot of work to be done with the third-year quarterback.
Personally, I agree with this ranking. It’s difficult to take away anything from the Top 7 quarterbacks above him: Drew Brees, Patrick Mahomes, Andrew Luck, Philip Rivers, Tom Brady, Aaron Rodgers and Russell Wilson.
