To the NYT, the WaPo, CNN and the entire Ivy League, he was never that great. For example, in the third quarter of last year's game against the Arizona Cardinals, the threw an interception. Here is that play.
Just look at that. Look at it again. And again, but this time in slow motion. Then look at it from another angle. Bring in experts to discuss it. What went wrong? How was Jared at fault? Why did he make such a poor decision? Couldn't he see that his man wasn't open?
What does this play tell you about Jared Goff? To me, it suggests that he isn't very good. Some people, off the record, are saying that he sucks. He might be past his prime. The game could well have passed him by and this play is the harbinger of many, many more interceptions to come.
Let's face it, Jared is nothing at all like we were led to believe by the extremist Rams fans. When you look at history, when you see what he was really like, I think you'll come to the conclusion that Jared is not that great.
Left unsaid: The Rams won the game 34-0 and Jared threw for 354 yards and a touchdown. His passer rating for that game was 108.1.
