Jared Goff has no complaints about Sean McVay’s criticisms

Rams coach Sean McVay told reporters after Sunday’s loss to the 49ers that quarterback Jared Goff needs to do a better job of protecting the football.

Goff has no complaints about McVay’s comments.

“If he was lying, I’d feel differently about it,” Goff told reporters on Wednesday. “He’s absolutely right and I’m a big boy. I can handle it. We have a great relationship and I’m accountable for myself. I need to be better than that. I need to take care of the football and he’s absolutely right and I will. I have done that for majority of my entire football career and will continue to take care of the football better.”

That’s only part of what McVay said. The other wrinkle came on Monday, when McVay was asked whether he considered benching Goff in either the loss to the Dolphins or the loss to the 49ers. Instead of quickly dismissing the question, McVay provided a lengthy answer that legitimized it.

Goff wasn’t asked about that. And it would be interesting to know how he feels about McVay saying anything other than the question of whether Goff ever would be benched is a stupid question.

  1. I would tell McVay to do what the master does, say nothing and if anything belittle the question. Can only hurt yourself talking like that to the media. BB knew this before he was a coach.

  2. Goff’s response should have been: “he says 10x worse things to me in the meeting rooms, so its nothing that I haven’t heard before.” But that would only invite more stupid questions from the media like “WhAt DoEs He SaY?!”

  3. Missing the Friday practice now seems like it was the incorrect decision…from the Sofa Quarterback.

  4. In case you haven’t noticed, McVay gives a lengthy answer when asked what he ate for breakfast. This is a non-story.

  5. Goff Ball is not nearly as good as everyone seems to believe.

    I’m not sure how this narrative began, but he’s an above average quarterback, but not the kind of player who can lead you to a Super Bowl without a defense that has both Aaron Donald and Ndamukong Suh in the front 4.

    I just look at him and I’m not very impressed. When you look at Mahomes, even if you hate him and he’s a division rival you have to acknowledge that what he can do is impressive.

    I’ve never seen Goff do anything to wow me.

    I couldn’t stand Russell Wilson at first, but even back then I could tell he had a real gift for throwing the high arcing deep ball. He’s performed at a high level for years and is definitely a franchise QB. I don’t recall Pete Carroll ever being asked about whether he considered benching Wilson.

    The writing is on the wall for Goff. Start to play better NOW or you might end up playing somewhere else as soon as they find someone good enough to replace you.
