The Los Angeles Rams Are All Goff’d Up

I don’t know who the heck John Wolford is, but if I were Sean McVay I’d be making a change in the rotation before the season completely slips away.  Jared Goff is killing the Rams with his inconsistent play, which was further evident on Sunday against the Dolphins.

Goff has turned the ball over 10 times this season and turned it over four more times on Sunday, throwing two interceptions with two fumbles.  Despite having sensational talent around him, Goff has a quarterback rating of just 60.6, which ranks 23rd in the league.  When taking a closer look at the quarterbacks from teams below him, it’s a who’s who of talentless teams such as the Jets, Bengals, Bears, Broncos, Washington, Patriots, Jags, and Eagles. 

Goff has really solid guys around him. Do you think Joe Burrow, Nick Foles, Gardner Minshew, Carson Wentz, or Cam Newton would love to have Robert Woods, Cooper Kupp, Josh Reynolds, and Tyler Higbee at their disposal?  Goff also has a decent offensive line, which makes it even more puzzling.

Here is a reality for the Rams and McVay.  Jared Goff isn’t any good.  His best seasons were in 2017 and 2018 when the running game was chugging the ball down their opponents’ throats.  Since then he has thrown 22 interceptions in 24 starts, completing just 63.7% of his passes to what appears to be wide-open receivers.  Making matters worse is his escargot-type running skills, as his longest run from scrimmage since the end of the 2018 campaign is 10 just yards.

It’s 2020, McVay.  For a guy that is supposed to be one of the brilliant young minds in football, one can only wonder why you talked the front office into paying this guy $33.5-million per year with no real back-up plan. 

John Wolford has never thrown a pass in the NFL and was last seen completing a pass for the Arizona Hotshots in the Alliance of American Football (AAF).  The last time the Rams’ organization took a chance on someone like this was in 1997 when they signed a guy from the Iowa Barnstormers and allocated him to NFL Europe with the Amsterdam Admirals.  His name was Kurt Warner, and he now owns a yellow jacket and has a bust in Canton.

It’s time to make a change, McVay, before the Rams return to the Mark Bulger era.  I see no reason to have a Lamborghini of a stadium when you have a Fiat under center.
