Sean McVay: Jared Goff has improved but the best QB will play for Rams
There are no guarantees that Goff, the 2016 first-overall pick, will be the Rams’ starter this season
Jared Goff had a forgettable rookie season. There’s no shame in that — it happens every year, especially with quarterbacks drafted early and carrying the expectations of a franchise that has hit a rough patch.
In seven starts in 2016, Goff, the first-overall pick, completed just 54.6 percent of his throws for 1,089 yards with five touchdowns Cheap Jerseys and seven interceptions. He was sacked 26 times and sported a passer rating of just 63.6. There’s more: According to Football Outsiders’ metrics, Goff ranked dead-last among all quarterbacks, behind even Brock Osweiler, Ryan Fitzpatrick, and even the guy he replaced, Case Keenum.
The good news is that Jeff Fisher is out, replaced by Sean McVay, the former Redskins offensive coordinator who has a knack for getting the most from his passers. Whether he can work that magic in Los Angeles will determine if the Rams can be something Cheap nfl Jerseys other than a mediocre football team. And while it’s too early to make grand proclamations about the 2017 season or Goff’s future under center, McVay’s recent comments caught some attention.
“I think what we’ve tried to preach to our players is we’re going to let the best players play,” McVay said this week, via the team’s official website. “We’re trying to win football games and whoever we feel like gives us the best chance is who’s going to play behind center. Right now, we feel very good about what they’ve both done. (QB) Jared (Goff) has done a nice job getting better, but you always want to make sure that you’re playing the guy that you feel like gives you the best ability to win football Customized Jerseys games, because we owe it to our coaches, to our players and to this organization to do that. I think what we’ve seen is good for those guys, but right now Jared’s the starter and he’s done a nice job commanding that role.”
Not exactly a ringing endorsement, but again, it’s June 1. Goff is learning a new offense, with a new coach and it’s not realistic to expect him to be in midseason form during OTAs. And perhaps this is McVay’s way of motivating Goff over the coming weeks ahead of training camp. We can’t imagine there’s a scenario where McVay would prefer to have backup Sean Mannion under center to start the season.
For what it’s worth, Goff sounds much more comfortable in McVay’s system than he ever seemed as a rookie.
“It’s a way Los Angeles Rams Jerseys different offense,” Goff said last week, via the Los Angeles Times. “I’ve had a quicker time learning it, easier time learning it. I don’t know whether that’s scheme or the way it’s taught or whatnot, but I’ve enjoyed spending time with the coaches and picking it up pretty quickly.”
