should not have extended him when they did

May 25, 2023 03:45AM
I liked Goff a lot overall. Still do, and I'm glad to see him succeeding in Detroit. He's one of the reasons they are favored to win the NFC North this year.

But you're right. He had two very good seasons (2017 and 2018). McVay knew how to play to Goff's strengths. But give the kid credit. He was not just a "system QB." He was a very good QB those two years- a 101 QB rating, a better than 3:1 TD/INT ratio and a 24-7 record.

But the Rams biggest error was extending him after 2018. There was zero reason to (same with Austin in 2016...). The 5th year option exists for a reason and all the Rams should have done then is pick up that (substantial 2020) option and waited to see how 2019 played out.

And if they had things would have been different. Maybe they'd still have extended him at that point, who knows. But the contract sure would have looked different. Or maybe they'd have just let it play out through 2020 ready to franchise him if necessary.

Like others said, in the end it has worked out for all involved. Rams fans should be forever grateful for his contributions. And I hope he plays really well again this year in Detroit.

  Should the Rams have been more patient with Jared Goff’s development?

  You can compare his production from 2017-through KC game, then after

JimYoungblood5343May 26, 2023 11:27AM

  He has always been a quality QB.

  I have always said Stafford can be a "streaky" player

Ramsdude55May 26, 2023 06:56AM

  We traded for a different QB and then won a SB.
