Goff and JT looked pretty similar last night GoSC27!

Obviously there was no running game, resulting in the most tell tailing stat on each of the Ram’s drives, punt, punt, punt, punt, punt, punt, ........ The second thing that was evident were the constant shots taken by Goff. Even when he tried to evade the rush he took shots. Eventually, that led to the one play he is going to remember all off season long. The Gilmore interception. If you go back and see the replay, fundamentals broke down and he through off of his back foot, leading to an under thrown ball. He saw the rush coming and threw a bad pass. He knew it as soon as he released the ball. We saw many of the same in JT’s games. So does that make Goff a mediocre/bad quarterback? Trevor Lawrence was elevated to NFL status after his play in the CFP championship, but the difference was that he had an Oline that could run and pass block. Last night’s game brought back painful memories of our 2018 season. Very poor offensive game planning, no run game, poor Oline play, no half time adjustments, and a QB taking hit after hit. The only bright spot was the defense that played lights out, until they got gassed out in the last minute. In no means am I comparing McVay to Helton/Tee. It was one game and the old dog taught the new dog that there is still a lot to learn. But two things stood out. First, there are many that are still busting on JT from last season’s play. Last night showed what happens when a QB takes continued shots. I am not making a case for JT, but it does take a toll on a QB as was evident last night. Second, last night showed that defense wins championships. Yes the Air Raid and high scoring offenses make the games more entertaining, but Bellachick put his trademark defense on display. I say this because there is high optimism for Harrell an his new offensive system. Having endured Helton/Tee’s Offense for the past 2 years anything is a welcomed change, but as last night demonstrated, given time someone will figure out how to stop these high powered offenses. McVay like Goff will be thinking about this one the whole off season! Fight On! SoCalLifer, longshot10, GoSC1 and 1 other person like this.
