Jared Goff is a year removed from being the starting QB of the Rams and he has to watch them play in the NFC championship.
It kind of makes it worse because he has to play for the Lions who aren’t any good and were 3-13-1.
After a very long season, Goff is now taking a much-needed vacation with his Sports Illustrated model girlfriend Christen Harper. The two are in Turks and Caicos living it up and enjoying life.
He should enjoy the peace while he can because the NFL season will be here before he knows it. As far as Goff’s future with the Lions here is what we know.
There is no doubt about it. Jared Goff’s performance in the first few games of his Detroit Lions career was not exactly inspiring. Goff ranked near the bottom in air yards per attempt and efficiency, and the Lions offense sputtered.
When Dan Campbell took over the offense from coordinator Anthony Lynn, Goff’s game expanded. With a rejuvenated passing scheme designed by tight ends coach (and likely new offensive coordinator) Ben Johnson, Goff started to throw the ball down the field more, and more effectively.
The season splits from before and after the change, coinciding with the Lions’ bye in Week 11:
First 8 games: 206-of-308 (66.9%), 6.5 yards per attempt, 8 TD, 6 INT, 85.3 passer rating
Last 5 games: 105-of-156 (67.3%), 7.1 Y/A, 9 TD, 2 INT, 99.1 passer rating
The confluence of the changes produced a viable NFL passing attack and helped lead the Lions to three wins in the final six games after a brutal 0-10-1 start. It also elevated Goff into looking more like a legitimate, quality starting quarterback.
Goff will get one more year to prove he can be a starting QB in the NFL, if it doesn’t work out after next season he could be staring at the unemployment line.
