McVay’s offense provides upside for QB Jared Goff

The Los Angeles Rams turned to offensive-minded coach Sean McVay to right a Rams offense that after three years never graded higher than 27th overall. McVay’s progress with his former pupil – Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins – shows promise for the Rams and young QB Jared Goff.

  • Since he took over as offensive coordinator for the Redskins in 2014, Washington’s offense vaulted from a 24th overall grade by PFF, to 18th in 2015 and finally up to sixth in 2016.
  • Over the last three seasons, Cousins averaged 8.1 yards per attempt in 2016 – third best among quarterbacks. Goff’s 2016 yds/att was 2.8 yards less than Cousins – and dead last in the NFL among 37 qualifying quarterbacks.
  • The Rams have had only one quarterback throw for more than 2,200 yards since 2012, and only twice has a quarterback thrown more than 3,500 yards since 2010.
  • Goff’s final year at Cal saw him finish with an overall grade of 87.9 while attempting 531 passes. Cousins has averaged 598 attempts over the last two seasons.

    The coaching changes are the best thing to happen to the Rams in a while. They should have dumped Fisher long before they did. Goff will show that the scouts who pegged him as the best prospect his draft year, weren’t idiots after all.

    Jeff Fisher And Rex Ryan are the grim reaper of QB’s.., If you are a QB for either of them… You may as well put a anchor around your neck and jump off the football cliff.. You are better off!!
