It has been quite the week for the Los Angeles Rams. Mostly disappointing with some exciting trades thrown in, but when it’s just about performance on the field... well, that’s where the fun ends.
Week 7’s QB Index ruled very harshly on our system QB, dropping his six spots and behind such QBs as Jacoby Brissett, Gardner Minshew, Sam Darnold, Baker Mayfield, Kirk Cousins, Kyler Murray, and Derek Carr.
And in case you’re curious, QB Russell Wilson is now considered the top QB in the NFL while QB Patrick Mahomes II has somehow landed back on Earth.
There’s no real way of getting around the fact that Goff accumulated 78 yards off of 24 passing attempts. No touchdowns. No turnovers. Statistically speaking, it’s as if he was a ghost out there. He was technically playing the entire game, but he was really just setting up the punting game. And not to make excuses, but the offensive line is a major work in progress right now with the injury to OL Joseph Noteboom.
Because of his pretty impressive 1,727 passing yards, Goff could still resurrect his numbers and come out looking like a top 15 QB by the end of the season, maybe even close to the top ten. However, things need to change.
Playing against the Atlanta Falcons’ defense could very be a step in the right direction.
