In this live episode of The Detroit Lions Podcast, Chris and Jeff Risdon do a deep dive on Jared Goff, look at whether picking him up was a good move, scout his abilities, and discuss his fit on the Lions. We also make fun of Tedy Bruschi for his terrible take on Matthew Stafford‘s toughness, Talk about the new coaching staff and what they mean to the team, and Get into potential free agent Wide Receivers that aren’t in the headlines you’re reading today.
Detroit Lions Podcast On Jared Goff
The first and most important thing that people need to know is that Matthew Stafford was not going to play for the Detroit Lions in 2021. The team didn’t have a Quarterback, but did have a $19 million dead cap number. That was the table stakes, the reality the new front office and GM Brad Holmes had to deal with. When you look across the landscape of real possibilities, who else would have been a better replacement that Jared Goff? Toss in 2 upcoming first round picks, and a third round pick this year and the decision was a no-brainer. We wind up with a quarterback that has won playoff games, been to a Super Bowl and is just 26 years old leading a team on a trial basis during a rebuild. If he doesn’t work, we have plenty of ammunition to get “our guy” in 2022 or 2023 – the Lions have an amazing set of options. We also talk about Jared Goff as a player and discuss his abilities and flaws and contrast them against Matthew Stafford and his abilities and flaws. It just might be that the Lions and Rams have upgraded for the rosters and schemes they play.
There’s More Than Jared Goff In Detroit
We have a coaching staff that sees player who were hesitant and obviously had their confidence shaken last season. They played slower than they should have – seemingly afraid. We discuss why that is, what happened, and what qualifies this staff to turn that around. From there we discuss off-the-radar free agency pickups at the wide receiver position that just might interest a team like the Lions. There are some good talents out there for the Lions to grab.
