Head coach of Detroit Lions Dan Campbell did not mince words about Jared Goff after Sunday's 34-11 defeat to the Cincinnati Bengals, digging extremely deeper into a winless 2021 NFL season opener with an 0-6 record through Week 6. Made known of Campbell's candid comments Sunday, Goff honestly reacted to the remarks.
Goff said via gambling online, "Yeah, I think I can always do more, it's — you're never in a position where you feel like you're complacent and, of course, we're nowhere near that. But I think I've got some experiences to rely on that I can relay to these guys and do my best to be the best leader I can be and try to find the open guy and get 'em the ball and take care of the football and do my job every day."
Goff recorded over 28 of 42 passes for 202 yards and 0 touchdowns to only 1 interception. The Bengals (4-2) sacked JarefGoff one time for a defeat of 10 yards.
Goff said when questioned about Campbell's locker-room comment, "Usually exactly how he looks — very frustrated, and I think this was the first one that we really got our butts kicked, and we felt it."
Through 6 matches, Jared Goff is 159 for 238 with about 1,505 yards and 7 touchdowns to 4 interceptions. The Detroit Lions have lost 3 matches by one score.
Goff disclosed, "I think, yeah, it's a balance — but you're not human if you're not upset."
"We put so much time and effort into all of this and so much energy and so much love for the game and passion, and to have a result like that and repeated results of losses are tough. And it doesn't kill our spirit or kill who we are, but for right now, yeah, we're mad and we're frustrated."
Up next in Match Week 7, Jared Goff will face his former colleague on Sunday with a 4:05 p.m. ET match at the L.A Rams. He got traded earlier this offseason in a move that saw the Detroits Lions trade Matthew Stafford out.
The 27-year-old Goff was a 2-time Pro Bowl pick with the Los Angeles Rams from the 2016-20 season. In 69 regular-campaign matches (all starts), he went 42-27 while finishing 63.4% of his passes for about 18,171 yards and 107 touchdowns to over 55 interceptions.
Goff said in a statement after the trade via jeux de machine a sous, "Thank you to the entire city of Los Angeles for welcoming a 21-year-old kid with open arms and making this town feel like home."
"This city has shaped the man I've become and I will be forever grateful for the Kroenke family, my coaches, the support staff, and most importantly, my teammates for competing and fighting with me every Sunday — I've made memories with everyone of you in that locker room that I will cherish for the rest of my life.
"To the fans, thank you for the relentless support through all the ups and the downs — it has meant the world to me. From the bottom of my heart, it's been an honor to represent the city of LA. With that said, I couldn't be more excited for this next chapter and am ready to attack this new opportunity that lies ahead. Detroit, here I come."
