Jared Goff wonders if getting pissed off will be the answer for the Lions

The Lions fell to 0-4 with Sunday’s 24-14 loss to the Bears and quarterback Jared Goff thinks a change in attitude might be what the team needs to wind up with better results.

Lions head coach Dan Campbell said after the game that the loss “ought to piss you off” and Goff agreed with his coach about the mindset that the Lions need to adopt heading into next Sunday’s game in Minnesota.

“I think you just get to the point where you’re . . . there’s no longer like, ‘Oh well we did these things good.’ You know? Like, you get to the point where it’s like, ‘Well, we still lost,'” Goff said, via Benjamin Raven of MLive.com. “And then you’re not happy about it. Yeah, maybe a pissed-off team will execute a little bit better and that’s me included. How can we be better next week? Maybe getting pissed off will be the answer.”

If getting pissed off helps Goff hold onto the ball, it would be a step in the right direction. He lost two fumbles on plays that started inside the Bears’ 10-yard-line and the failure to get points on those drives loomed large in the loss.

  1. As predicted, terrible mistake for the Lions to trade for this guy. Congrats on your 0-4 start.

  2. I have a feeling that “getting pissed off” has already been tried in Detroit.

  3. It hasn’t helped Lions fans the past 50 years but maybe it will work for the team,

  4. There’s a reason Tom Brady handles media questioning the way he does….Mr Goff and many others should copy the technique of how to say nothing for an entire press conference

  5. Not even the most talented running back in NFL history could overcome the gravitational pull of the black hole that is the Lions organization. Don’t get too upset.

  6. Jared is exactly who McVay thought he was; part of the problem. I guess it’s worth paying him $25 million this season to ensure the Lions get the #1 pick in the draft?!

  7. The sad truth is it doesn’t matter who the QB is on this team, they are who they are for a reason. I don’t think Goff is a bad QB, he just hasn’t found the right mix of coach and weapons for a few years now.

  8. “Pissed off” is code for Lions fans enduring this ownership and it’s endless mistakes…

  9. The Ford family has held this franchise hostage in mediocrity for over 60 years…that’s what you should be pissed-off about Jared!!
