Despite losing to the San Francisco 49ers 24-16 this past weekend, the feeling around Los Angeles Rams quarterback Jared Goff should be positive. Goff is completing a career-high 67.4% of his passes, has thrown 10 touchdowns with just four interceptions, and has the highest passer rating of his career (101.4).

Sosa Kremenjas, the host of the daily Locked On Rams Podcast, was joined by Brad Mader and they recapped the quarterback’s performance against their NFC West rival. While Jared Goff’s numbers weren’t pretty in the game, his performance wasn’t quite as bad as it seems:

Mader: The thing I came up with for my positive spin is that Goff looks like a different quarterback than he did last year and Sunday night was a perfect example of that. He just looked comfortable and confident in his throws and they weren’t all perfect throws. Some of them were off, but think back to last year.

That first matchup last year with the Niners. It was 20-7, Goff had 78 passing yards in that game and our offense had 157 total yards. Yes, that defense was a little different last year because Goff went down for different times in that matchup last year and he looked skittish. He looked nervous. That offensive line struggled. That was almost the beginning, in my eye, where the offensive line started to fall apart last year was that first Niners game. It gives me encouragement in Jared Goff in the way that he was moving in the pocket and how comfortable he felt at times. Even if the throw wasn’t 100 percent money, it looked like money coming out of his hands. He just had this flow around the pocket and gave me this confidence as I went back and watched the game in pieces.
