Dan Patrick: “I like Jared Goff as a person, but if you don’t have play-action and just say you’re going to be a pocket quarterback I start to get a little nervous there… He has 6 TDs and 7 INTs in his last 5 games; when does it start to become a pattern here?” (Full Video at Bottom of Page)
Listen to Dan Patrick discuss ESPN NFL analyst Dan Orlovsky's comments about Los Angeles Rams quarterback Jared Goff over the weekend that mentioned the immense struggles of Goff during 2019, just a year removed from the Rams' dream 2018 season when they won the NFC Championship.
Goff is coming off back-to-back Pro Bowl seasons after Rams head coach Sean McVay resurrected his career from his historically disastrous rookie season with former HC Jeff Fisher, but struggled during the second half last season and through the playoffs, and through four games this season ranks 26th in the NFL in QBR, throwing six interceptions compared to six touchdowns.
Goff’s Rams are coming off a shocking 55-40 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers that saw Goff throw for 517 empty yards that resulted in three interceptions, a lost fumbled resulting in the game-clinching touchdown, and an ugly 38.9 QBR.
Check out the video below as Dan Patrick has doubts to whether Goff can survive in the pocket without the threat of play-action.
