Breshad Perriman: Jared Goff’s arm talent is crazy

The Lions’ offense will look a lot different in 2021 with Jared Goff as the team’s starting quarterback.

Goff recently got together with some of his new teammates in Southern California to throw some routes and get to know one another. Recently signed Breshad Perriman was among the players out there, and got a positive impression of his new QB.

“I’m really excited just to be able to go to work with him. His arm talent is crazy,” Perriman said on Tuesday, via Chris Burke of “Could tell he’s really, really talented. Really a cool dude off the field.”

Perriman and Goff are among several new offensive players that coordinator Anthony Lynn will call plays for in 2021. A former first-round pick in 2015, Perriman caught 30 passes for 505 yards with three touchdowns with the Jets last season.

He signed a one-year deal with Detroit in March.

  1. Definition of crazy: mentally deranged, especially as manifested in a wild or aggressive way.

  2. Be interesting to see how Goff looks without McVay to use him like a remote controlled robot. My guess? Not good.

  3. Talking-up your new QB after you join a new team is always a smart business practice. Breshad Perriman is a smart businessman. Hope the two of them combine for some magical moments that all NFL fans can enjoy next year.

  4. The whole situation is crazy. Goff took the Rams a lot farther than Stafford ever took the Lions.
    Yet here we are.

  5. He’s no Brady, but let’s not forget he out-dueled Mahomes in a 54-51 shootout and got his team to a Super Bowl. Pretty short list of current players can make that claim.

    I think these Lions are doing to do better than people expect. Lynn did a great job with Herbert, Goff has had success throughout his time in L.A., I think it’s a group that has something to prove.

  6. What was it they used to say about Jeff George? Million dollar arm, ten cent head?

  7. Goff can make every throw in the NFL…eventually. The trouble for Goff is processing information quickly enough to wind-up and uncork it. If he has enough time, sure, he can fit it through a keyhole, but you rarely have that much time in the NFL. When he has to get it done quickly, he struggles to see the field and that long throwing motion slows things even more.

    How much of his processing issues were McVay constantly in his ear? If you put him in a simpler system where he has to make fewer decisions will he fare better? Maybe. But he will still have that delayed motion that slows things down.

    He’s probably not going to make it through the season in Detroit in one piece.

  8. Brain talent, no so much.

    If a QB fails the free toss test on a field with pro WR’s … they should not even be playing JC ball.

    So, basically, it’s like saying he figured out how to get to the practice field and he has an arm to throw a football. That has not been Detroit’s problem. Stafford could always got the beer guy in the second deck … the Lions only had 98 other problems … at least their head coach won’t be tweeting from a burner account that’s he’s a genius …

    Stafford never had a team like Goff had over the last 3 years neither.

  10. I think the coach used him as excuse to save himself a few extra years. I will laugh if he turns out to be a stud under Lynn. Good luck Goff.

  11. He’s not wrong. Jared Goff does have crazy arm talent, and will go as far as the Head Coach can take them. Goff will do his part. Unfortunately the Lions have signed yet another in a long line of meathead coaches, thinking “tough guys” is what the Lions need, yet they always lose. Perhaps a change of strategy is due…

  12. Perriman is a Lion Legacy! if his dad can be successful with Scott Mitchell no reason why Perriman can’t be successful with Goff

  13. Jamarcus Russell could throw a football 70 yards from his knees. It takes a whole lot more than arm strength to be a good NFL QB.
