The Lions don’t consider current player Jared Goff a bridge QB

Most of the NFL world takes note Jared Goff For the Lions to be a bridge to help the starter get to a real franchise starting QB at some point in the future. That is, everyone except the Lions.

Winners of four of their last five games, Detroit is one of the hottest teams in the NFL. Goff’s play is a big reason why.

While the lions are being prepared face The Vikings today go with a 5-7 record and play as well as Goff has played since 2018.

According to sources, Goff is believed to be their starting QB. Time. Not just until someone else comes along. With all due respect to the unknown — strange things happen in the NFL — the plan is for Goff to be in Detroit for the foreseeable future.

“Here’s to being consistent, man, making the right decisions, taking care of the football and he’s done that,” Lions coach Dan Campbell said Monday in Detroit. 40-14 win More than Jacksonville. “And it’s been five weeks now and that’s a big part of the reason we won. He’s making really smart decisions and we were going to put a lot on his arm (Sunday). This was going to be big. — put it in the air, we felt like that was the way to attack this team. And that and then he did.”

Arguably, Goff is at his best since leading the Rams to Super Bowl LIII. His 95.7 passer rating is his best since that year, along with 7.5 yards per attempt, both per NFL Research.

They are the only three players to have multiple games with four or more TDs this season Patrick Mahomes, Josh Allen… and Goff. Goff is also one of three QBs with five TD passes and zero INTs since Week 10 (along with Jimmy Garoppolo and Trevor Lawrence).

New Lions General Manager Brad Holmes to negotiate for Goff Matthew Stafford deal through the 2021 season, picking up his contract and getting two first-round picks and more. Stafford led the Rams to a Super Bowl title the following season, the trade also paid off for Detroit.

He could be the Rams’ 2023 first-round pick who was sent to the Lions a top-10 selectionand Goff has two years remaining on a deal worth $52.3 million — very favorable for a starter.

If Goff continues to impress and Detroit doesn’t need to select a QB in this draft, that pick could be used on a top position player or a perfect trade pick. There is a long way to go until then, but where it is right now is very positive for Detroit.

When Goff arrived in Detroit from Los Angeles, he made it clear after the Rams and coach Sean McVay that they were moving on from him. They made it to the Super Bowl together, but it was over, and both sides were ready. However, Goff had been a five-year starter and had more than his share of moments with the Rams.

He came to Detroit in the midst of what the Lions believe was a franchise in utter destruction, with a team wracked by injuries and starved of talent, plus Forward from offensive coordinator Anthony Lynn After the 2021 season. This year under OC Ben Johnson, who has emerged as one potential coach candidate himself, Goff has impressed.

And no, the team doesn’t want to move on from there.

“I think like anything else, there’s growing pains throughout the whole thing,” Campbell said this week, “but I think now we’re going to know exactly who those two are and what they’re looking for. And it’s a nice place to be.” .
