Jared Goff Jersey
“Good Morning Football” host Peter Schrager was asked which NFC West quarterback he thinks will perform the best over the next five years, and he selected the Los Angeles Rams’ Jared Goff over Russell Wilson.
“Jared Goff, he went to a Super Bowl last season,” Schrager said. “Jared Goff is going to get paid like he deserves, and Jared Goff has, to me, the greatest mastermind when it comes to drawing up plays that are going to suit the young quarterback, Sean McVay. So you put that all together I’ll take the guy who I’ve seen do it on the field, in this offense, and no offense to Russell Wilson.”
While few will argue that coach McVay is better-suited to get results out of a young quarterback than Seattle’s offensive coordinator, Brian Schottenheimer, it is hard to ignore the results Wilson produced in a Schottenheimer-lead offense last season.
Despite having over 100 fewer passing attempts than in 2017, Wilson still posted a ridiculous 35-7 touchdown/interception ratio last year, along with a career-high 110.9 passer rating. Compare that to Goff’s 32-12 ratio and 101.1 rating, and you can see why Schrager’s co-hosts were skeptical.
Yes, Goff and the Rams went 13-3 and to the Super Bowl last year, and yes Goff is 24 compared to Wilson’s 30, but it’s hard to envision Goff being better than Wilson over the next five seasons when Wilson was statistically better than Goff last year despite being six years older and having fewer offensive weapons and a run-focused offensive coordinator.
Schrager was not dismissive of Wilson’s accolades, saying he’d much rather have Wilson’s overall career than Goff’s, even calling Wilson a Hall of Fame quarterback.
“But if you’re telling me in the next five years, knowing what Jared Goff has around him, in three talented wide receivers, Todd Gurley and Sean McVay calling the plays, I will roll with Jared Goff over any of those quarterbacks,” Schrager said.
Wilson will get two chances to face Goff and the Rams next season, at home on Oct. 3 and in Los Angeles on Dec. 8.
