As Jrry said, that contract was not really taken off us.Yes.
Also, have to remember 1 of those first rounders was to take Jared's contract.
So Jared Goff and a 1st for Matthew Stafford? Still one hell of a deal for us.
Outstanding, haha...To be quite honest, he can pull me off if he signs for 20m and allows us to strengthen further.
Truth. This is not even remotely about Goff. He was not good enough to QB a perennial contender.Goff will never be a great QB even though he had some very good games.
Stafford's already been sacked more than Goff and that's with more longer developing routes.And I still blame Blythe for a lot of that decline.
Yes one player can make a HUGE difference if they are a really bad weak link and Blythe was that last year.
Goff had no chance on some of his throws.
And note that Blythe hasn't even played for KC this year even with their huge turnover in their OL.
But yes Stafford is > Goff. Worth 2 1sts and a third - that is a good question and I have not made up my mind
Yes they are in rebuild mode but I bet in two years, Detroit is going to be a contending team.The team has two wins. They are clearly in rebuild mode and do not need a 25M QB, regardless of his ability, haha.... That was absolutely part of the trade. Not sure how anyone could see it any other way.
I can't remember where, but I read or heard that $$ wasn't going to be an issue with Stafford. I think we see him on a lower-tier deal, similar to Brady.Do we now give Stafford a humongous contract though?
He can really win me over if he pulls a Tom Brady and says $20M is enough... and he doesn't want a $40M contract. After all he is one of the big bonus babies that got the huge rookie deals that are no longer given out to #1 picks.
Now for some sobering stats...
Yes, the Rams are 11-4 and in the NFC West driver's seat. But Stafford has been a lot closer to peak Jared Goff than the vision Sean McVay and Co. had when they traded for him.sports.yahoo.com
I see a 2018 playbook but Stafford is still better than Goff.Stafford's already been sacked more than Goff and that's with more longer developing routes.
Allen is better than Blythe, but, much like McVay's first couple of years, I now see an offense where the defense has to account for an entire playbook, every play. Keeping a defense off balance is key for this offense, imo.
That's my point.I see a 2018 playbook but Stafford is still better than Goff.
But Allen/Corbett is so much better than Blythe. That has also allowed McVay to open up the playbook as well.That's my point.
I'm comparing the Oline situation this year to last year... Stafford opening up the playbook makes it easier on the oline.
It's also one of the reasons it's batshit that McVay was going empty so often earlier this season.
Truth. This is not even remotely about Goff. He was not good enough to QB a perennial contender.
People continuing to victimize him are simply trying to prove their old takes right. But time is not going to be nice to them. He'll probably be a journeyman/backup here in a couple years once Detroit is done using him to keep the position warm. There was never enough dog in Goff and that old quote by Martz about your QB needing to be the most competitive guy on the field wins the internet in this conversation IMO.
We'll see though if the Stafford cost was worth paying. I am pretty happy right now with him at QB though of course I am concerned with him reverting to bad habits. Playoffs are going to tell us a lot, he needs to play well for us.
Anyone who argues over who is better is either delusional or haven't watched a game imo. I dont think it up for debate.
As far as worth it? I don't think so. He's been very good and very bad at times. He's 32-33 years old and has a year left....no guarantee we can keep him. Two first and a good qb in trade.
Goff is a good qb. Not great and not the leader Stafford is, but he is better than many starting QBs in this league and we basically just threw him in for free after giving up two more first rounders.
I should say, I'm happy that Stafford is here. And, if I'm being honest, I'm happy that Goff isn't. I just don't like the price.
