Rams should have higher expectations for Jared Goff after hiring Zac Robinson
The Los Angeles Rams hope to see Jared Goff benefit the most from the recent hiring of Zac Robinson following the departure of Zac Taylor.
Despite some of the criticism the Los Angeles Rams took early on two years ago when they decided to hire Sean McVay as the youngest head coach in NFL history, one of the main reasons behind the decision was due to the potential to work with Jared Goff.
During his time spent with the Washington Redskins as offensive coordinator, McVay received most of the credit for helping Kirk Cousins elevate his game to a whole new level, meaning the Rams were hoping to see similar results with their beloved quarterback.
Two years later, the hiring of McVay turned out to be the best thing to happen to Goff’s career after looking at the impact his head coach has made on offense for Los Angeles, and the best part is these two seem to only be scratching the surface of their true potential working together.
Even more exciting, the Rams made another move to their coaching staff on Saturday in what should be described as an underrated move by hiring Zac Robinson to help fill the void left by their former quarterbacks coach Zac Taylor, who recently left to coach the Cincinnati Bengals.
From a playing perspective, Robinson didn’t exactly have the most exciting career in the NFL after struggling to make numerous rosters after bouncing around quite a bit once the New England Patriots selected him in the seventh round of the 2010 NFL Draft.
However, when taking a closer look at the accomplishments by Robinson as both a PFF analyst and quarterback trainer, this makes it easier to understand why McVay seems willing to give him a chance to prove himself as part of the coaching staff in 2019.
All of a sudden, Goff has two amazing coaches with a strong history of quarterback development to work with heading into the 2019 season. And if all goes according to plan, Goff should manage to continue his path from the previous two years in which he continues to get better with experience.
Los Angeles heavily invested in Goff back in 2016 when they decided to give up a ton of future draft picks in order to land the former California star, and there’s no question the decision has paid off in one of the best ways possible.
After a strong third NFL season in which he threw for 4,688 yards to go along with 32 touchdown passes, and just 12 interceptions, here’s to hoping that year four turns out to be the best for Goff now that he has another great coach in Robinson to work with.
