Rams’ Jared Goff responds to Sean McVay’s comments about his poor play
The Los Angeles Rams were be swept in their season series against the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday, in large part due to Jared Goff’s turnover woes. Following Sean McVay’s comments that called out Goff for not taking care of the ball, Goff responded to his coach’s criticism.
“If he was lying, I’d feel differently about it,” Goff told reporters on Wednesday, via ProFootballTalk. “He’s absolutely right and I’m a big boy. I can handle it. We have a great relationship and I’m accountable for myself. I need to be better than that. I need to take care of the football and he’s absolutely right and I will. I have done that for majority of my entire football career and will continue to take care of the football better.”
During Sunday’s narrow loss to the 49ers, Goff threw two interceptions while also losing a fumble. Turnovers have been an issue for Goff this season, with him now having 10 interceptions and four lost fumbles through 11 games.
When McVay has spoken to the media after games, he’s usually refrained from singling out his quarterback. However, McVay didn’t shy away from saying that Goff needs to do a better job of making good decisions with the football.
Despite being singled out, Jared Goff realizes that McVay is correct in his assessment, admitting that he needs to fix his ball security issues. The former No. 1 overall pick will look to bounce back in a massive way during a crucial matchup with the Arizona Cardinals in Week 13.
