Los Angeles Rams: 3 reasons Jared Goff just took major leap into MVP conversation
2. Weapons to work with on offense
Similar to Goff, Todd Gurley was taking the same kind of heat heading into last season when it came to some Rams fans questioning whether he was the right fit on offense at running back, which was quickly proven wrong. After finishing second in the MVP voting to behind Tom Brady thanks to 2,093 yards from the line of scrimmage to go along with 19 total touchdowns, just the thought of Gurley playing with Goff for years to come was terrifying to think about.
Take this into consideration with the trio of receivers he gets to work with in Brandin Cooks, Robert Woods, and Cooper Kupp, most quarterbacks would do anything to be in the kind of offense Goff gets to work with. And when seeing how Goff was able to connect with each of these four studs for touchdowns on Thursday’s it no wonder the Vikings struggled the way they did on defense.
For an offense that was a joke in 2016 when Goff first entered the league while the team ranked dead last by only averaging 14 points per game, the Rams deserve plenty of credit for building this solid of an offense around their beloved quarterback. What’s even scarier to think about is when seeing how all of these guys Goff has to work with our locked up for years to come, meaning Los Angeles is just getting started when it comes to hitting their true potential.
