1. What kind of Jared Goff will we see in 2020?
This is the biggest question mark that the Rams have on offense, which is why it’s number one. Will we see the Jared Goff that led the Rams to the Super Bowl in 2018, earning himself a massive contract extension in 2019 or will we see the 2019 version of Goff that had seven interceptions over the last seven games in 2019?
There is one thing to understand regarding Goff: The Rams offense wasn’t exactly perfect around him either last year. Averaging just 3.7 rushing yards per attempt, it’s clear that Goff wasn’t able to really even turn to the running game when he needed to be bailed out in situations. Nor was the running game able to provide the offense with any kind of spark.
Recall that Goff also signed a massive contract extension in 2019, one that would see him earn $134 million dollars over the next four seasons. When you’re paid that kind of money as an NFL quarterback, it means you’re a franchise quarterback, something that Goff wasn’t really in 2019.
So back to the question: What kind of Goff will we see in 2020? It’s quite simple. If he returns to his 2018 form, the Rams will be favorites to win the NFC West and make the playoffs. However, if we see the 2019 version of Jared Goff, then it will be a long season in Los Angeles, one that could see the Rams potentially finish last in the division.
