Remembering Jared Goff as a Ram

I was cleaning up old bookmarks last night, and I came across this webpage that I bookmarked shortly after the Goff/Stafford trade was announced. It is from TheRamsWire, which is the USA Today Rams' site.

LINK *** The 10 best moments of Jared Goff's career with the Rams ***

In his five years with the Rams, Goff had 18,171 yards, 107 touchdowns and 55 interceptions, ranking among the franchise’s passing leaders in a number of categories. It was a half-decade of several memorable moments, too, including playoff wins over the Cowboys, Saints and Seahawks, as well as a Super Bowl appearance.

There is a lot of detail and video for each of the 10 instances where Goff played excellently in LA.

  1. First career win vs. Colts
  2. Shootout with 49ers in 2017
  3. Four-TD game vs. Giants
  4. NFC West-clinching win vs. Titans in 2017
  5. Career-high completion rate vs. Chargers
  6. Perfect passer rating vs. Vikings
  7. Historic duel with Patrick Mahomes, Chiefs
  8. Game-sealing run vs. Cowboys in playoffs
  9. NFC championship win vs. Saints
  10. Leading Rams to win vs. Seahawks with broken thumb

I think those 10 situations make a great case for the quality of QB that Goff was before he arrived in Detroit. And he's still not even 30 years old, coming off his 3rd Pro Bowl season.

I believe that we got an excellent QB in the trade, as well as the picks that has allowed Brad Holmes to rebuild this franchise very quickly.

Here is a career summary of Goff's accomplishments in Detroit and Los Angeles to date (June 2023)

In the comments, tell me if you think Goff could bring the Lions to a Super Bowl. And if so, why? What about his play leads you to believe that a championship is in his Detroit future?
