Goff having an 'easier time' with McVay's offense
- Los Angeles Rams quarterback Jared Goff is having an “easier time” learning the Rams’ new offense under head coach Sean McVay this offseason, he said recently. “I don’t know whether that’s scheme or the way it’s taught or what not, but I’ve enjoyed spending time with the coaches and picking it up pretty quickly.”
- A more comfortable, more productive Goff would go a long way toward improving a Rams offense that was one of the league’s worst in 2016, particularly at the game’s most important position.
- After taking over as the Rams starting quarterback in Week 11, Goff put up a 39.7 overall grade during the final seven games, edging out only Blaine Gabbert among 34 qualifying quarterbacks.
- Goff struggled in most areas during his rookie campaign, but especially so under pressure, which was an area where he showed promise in college.
- In his final college season, Goff’s 64.7 adjusted completion percentage under pressure ranked 15th among 54 qualifying quarterbacks. In his first NFL season, Goff’s 50.8 percent mark in the same metric ranked dead last among 34 qualifying quarterbacks.
