Rams believe Jared Goff can “truly have some ownership” of offense this season

Quarterback Jared Goff‘s play slipped in 2019, but that isn’t stopping the Rams from moving forward with him as the centerpiece of their offense.

Running back Todd Gurley and wide receiver Brandin Cooks are playing elsewhere this season, which will make for a different look than the first three years under head coach Sean McVay. If all goes according to plan, offensive coordinator Kevin O’Connell said that another difference will be the amount of control that Goff has over the unit.

“There’s a layer going into his fifth year, his fourth year in the offense, of ownership, where you feel strongly about presenting him with a plan where he could truly have some ownership, while also understanding at the end of the day, it’s just about being great with the details of doing his job,” O’Connell said, via the team’s website.

The changes with the Rams extend to the defensive side of the ball and that sets the stage for a season of transition in Los Angeles. Should Goff do well with what McVay and O’Connell have planned, that transition may not be an overly rocky one.

  1. @computojon…Wentz has a ring and was an integral part in a Super Bowl run.

    Goff is squarely average. Congrats on mediocrity

  2. Computojon, ok here it is. Went is worlds better than Goff. Pederson is also much better than your 1 year boy wonder…

  3. Remember its the off season of which there might not even be football. So what is said now is usually all positive. To me the key to the article is “with the details of doing his job”
    That’s not really an actual endorsement or positive. Kind of average and that’s not good for what he is being paid. Goff needs to be better than average for sure, almost elite.

  4. I thought he would have done this last year. I guess the Snoopy Bowl year was a blip on his otherwise mediocre career.

  5. When adjusting for OL performance, Goff has performed better than Luck, Brady, and many others.

    He already has a 500 yard game, joining a short list of NFL quarterbacks to do so. He had an opportunity to become one of four QBs (Brady, Brees, Roethlisberger) who have done so twice, but the Rams eased up at Arizona last season, and Goff finished with 424 yards.

    Through his first 27 starts, Drew Brees threw for 5,392 yards.
    Through his first 27 starts, Jared Goff threw for 6,620 yards.
