Lions QB Jared Goff confronts ugly report ahead of Thanksgiving Day game vs. Bears
All Jared Goff and the Detroit Lions want is a win. Still without a victory after 11 weeks of the 2021 NFL regular season, the last thing the Lions need is controversy, which is reportedly something they are dealing with following head coach Dan Campbell’s decision to take away the play-calling duties from offensive coordinator Anthony Lynn.
And according to a report by CBS (h/t Kevin Patra of the NFL.com) Goff’s disconnect with Lynn was a factor in Campbell taking over the play-calling responsibilities. Goff understandably denied that, saying he has no idea about it at all
“I was just told about that,” Goff said Tuesday, via the Detroit Free Press. “I don’t know where that came from. We have a great relationship. Me and him talk daily. I don’t know where that came from.”.
Whatever the case is, the Lions certainly look like a team that needs a major shift in their tactics on offense. They are third-worst in the NFL with just 16.0 points per game and 27th overall in total offense with only 312.0 total yards per contest.
The 0-9-1 Lions have scored just 26 points in their last two games, and it could get worse for them if Goff misses the game this Thursday against the Chicago Bears. He sat out Week 11’s 13-10 loss on the road to the Cleveland Browns due to an oblique injury, but is currently labeled questionable for the Bears game.
