Michael Brockers played with Jared Goff as the quarterback for the LA Rams for five years, but the first change at quarterback since 2016 has him thinking that the Super Bowl is in reach again. When asked by TMZ this week for his thoughts on the impending trade for Matthew Stafford, Brockers sounded especially optimistic about the Rams’ Super Bowl chances.
“I don’t want to say a lock for the Super Bowl, but with having a quarterback like that and just seeing what we did last year and just seeing what he can bring to this team, there’s no wonder why we can’t [win the Super Bowl],” Brockers said.
Of course, Brockers must first survive being a cap casualty, but he may have sounded just as confident about the possibility of returning as he is about what Stafford will bring to the quarterback position.
Though other sites have focused on the fact that Brockers said that Stafford is a “level up” from Goff, I don’t see what’s interesting about a player giving an honest opinion that everybody else shares. I think Brockers has a right to publicly agree with the rest of the world, but here you go:
“Is it a level up?” Brockers said. “In my heart, deeply, just understanding what [Stafford] brings, it’s a level up [over Goff]. It’s a level up.”
