So, how good is this version of Jared Goff?
Last year as most, myself included, were ready to paste the “bust” label on this former No. 1 overall pick, it’s nearly impossible to believe what we are now seeing take place with this quarterback.
In McVay, the second year QB is comfortable and poised. Unlike last season, Goff looks comfortable in the pocket. He doesn’t look like he is waiting to get pounded. So long as the offensive line hold, the sky’s the limit for him this season.
In Dallas, he’ll see a team many pick as a leading contender for the Super Bowl. Put aside the Seattle Seahawks, or frankly anyone in the NFC West, on Sunday, they’ll get the best the conference can offer.
Goff can, in many ways, close the door on the critics this coming Sunday. For all of us who questioned what kind of quarterback he can be, he’s doing a nice job answering.
Sunday, on center stage at Jerry World, and with God watching his favorite football team, Goff can effectively close the book on the critics.
It’ll be a tall order, but he can also make a career with a win.
For Los Angeles Rams fans, progress in a game he’s not supposed to win might be a victory they’ll take.
