Pocket ace

Goff has bad games, yes. But he has good games too. The national headlines splashed Goff’s struggles everywhere, while the same narratives patted Murray on the back and said ‘better luck next time’. Don’t let the one-off games fool you. Goff is a pocket-presence quarterback who will have a long NFL career. Even as frustrated fans voice their opinions to bench, cut, or trade Goff, he will return to call plays, throw passes, and win games.

The Arizona Cardinals have rushed quarterback Kyler Murray 97 times so far this season for 650 yards and 10 touchdowns. He is a fast runner, and will create serious and unique challenges for the LA Rams defense.  But he is getting nearly a third of the team’s rushing workload, as well as attempting 387 passes.  Of 727 offensive plays, Murray is directly involved in two-thirds of the offense. Goff is involved in just 59 percent of the Rams offense.

Aiming for All-Time passing leader

Goff is poised to set the LA Rams All-Time record for passing yards and passing touchdowns at his current pace in the next several years. And over his career, he could compete in, and win one or more Super Bowls. Everyone has a preference as to what they seek in a successful quarterback.  For now, the LA Rams are running their offense through quarterback Jared Goff.

Despite the most recent struggle, the Rams are 7-4 and in strong position to make a playoff run. They need to come out stronger on offense, but that is not all on Goff’s shoulders. Likewise, the Arizona Cardinals are just as hopeful to find a path to the playoffs.  With a win this Sunday, the LA Rams would even be in good shape to challenge the Seattle Seahawks for the NFC West Division Title. But they’ll need to get past Kyler Murray and the Arizona Cardinals twice to do so.
