Los Angeles Rams quarterback Jared Goff is going to be in a much larger role and take on some of the leadership as the Rams enter the second phase of a new era.
Goff described the “freshness” of coming back to the practice facility, ESPN reported Monday. There will be a ton of new things Goff will have to dive into with a new head coach and new playbook.
“I think we’re a lot closer to where we want to be than people may think,” Goff said. “We’ve got the players, we’ve got the talent. We’ve got all the pieces we need, really. It’s just about putting it together now.”
Goff will need to have a short memory to forget about his tumultuous rookie season. In eight games, Goff did not win. He threw five touchdown passes and was picked off seven times. His rating was an abysmal 63.6. But with Sean McVay taking over, Goff seemed excited.
“From what I know, and from what I’ve seen, it’s obviously a great offense,” Goff said. “I’ve talked to quarterbacks around the league and coaches and what-not, and I haven’t heard a bad word about it. So I’m excited for it.”
Los Angeles still has a lot of work to do. It starts at Goff and trickles down to the offensive line. The Rams will have to be much better to drum up any type of support as they move closer to playing in a huge stadium in Inglewood.
