Jared Goff is struggling to shake the memory of his rookie season and it’s especially difficult when he’s playing like he was during his roller coaster of a season with Jeff Fisher.
How bad have things gotten for the Los Angeles Rams and Goff? Our brothers over at Field Gulls are discussing an exit strategy. In Week 11. I think they’re overly harsh and you can always just use that age old pearl of wisdom: never trust a Seattle Seahawks fan.
NFL.com’s QB index didn’t do Goff any favors as far as respect at his position, knocking him out of the top 20.
So, the only thing that’s impressive about Goff’s stats are his 2,610 passing yards. And the 9 interceptions aren’t terrible considering how many times McVay has his throw the ball. It’s the fumbles that are crushing Goff this season. Five fumbles lost. That’s the same as QB Kyle Allen of the Carolina Panthers! That guy probably isn’t higher than Goff, right? No way — (checks notes...) — uh, anyway.
This list is dark if you’re a Goff fan.
Dropping five spots, this ranking serves the basic purpose to highlight the idea that the LA Rams offensive is broken right now. Goff could get his mojo back, but with the Chicago Bears, led by EDGE Khalil Mack, strolling into town on Sunday night, it’s hard to imagine that Goff and his duct-taped-together offensive line will re-ignite the offense that did so well last season.
On the bright side, third-round NFL Draft pick RT Bobby Evans will be steping in for his first start and if he does an effective job with the other young players, maybe Goff can find some consistency with the offense.
However, with the way things are going and the upcoming Sunday Night Football game proving to be rather challenging...
It’s going to get worse for Goff before it gets better.
