Drew Brees at age 24

My issue right now with Goff is that, after watching the saints and Houston, I found myself thinking "our guy couldn't have got us to a FG in 37 seconds, much less the 2 play TD drive of Watson.

Now, as a team we are capable of scoring on every drive. But Goff is just doing what he's told, the old game manager analogy. But drawing up plays in the sand to win a game is where I just don't see Goff matching.

Mind you, I absolutely think Goff could do that. I certainly don't think he's Brees or Brady in that regard. Yet. But, especially if he's allowed to sit easy in the pocket as Brees did and the defense drops half their team deep, as the Texans did, yeah, I would be thrilled - but not shocked - to see Goff get it done. "Game manager"?! I couldn't disagree more.

But here's the thing.

Brees at 24 went 2-9, threw 11 TD's and 15 picks, completed 57.6% of his passes for 192 ypg and earned a 67.5 QB rating. How bad is that? VERY nearly as bad as Goff's horrible first year, when his rating was 63.6 and the team went 0-7 w/him at the helm.

Just seems a bit rough to find fault with Goff for not matching up w/an all-time great in his prime when that all-time great wasn't nearly what he would become at the same stage of his illustrious career.
