The NFL.com ranks all starting quarterbacks from the 2021 season, but where did Jared Goff land?
Jared Goff First season up and down With the Detroit Lions. At a stretch (5th-10th weekSaying goodbye to Week 9, he was legally one of the worst quarterbacks in the league (one touchdown pass, one trial 5.9 yards).
However, at the final five starts of the season, interrupted by COVID-19 and a knee injury, Goff recorded a passer rating of 107.1 with 11 touchdowns and two intercepts. Lions are now 3-2 in those games.
Gregg Rosenthal on the NFL.com We ranked all 62 quarterbacks that started the game in the NFL during the 2021 season. If you’re interested, Tom Brady came in first and Jake Fromm (New York Giants) came last. Matthew Stafford was fifth.

Goff did it with a rookie Amon-Ra St. Brown in the fourth round and a rug tag group of receivers led by a lot of cast-offs. A strong offensive line and aggressive coach staff give Goff a chance to improve in his second season with the Lions, but he’s settling into a starter career just below the Dalton line. If Goff is your man, the search will continue with The Guy.
The “Dalton Line” is, of course, a reference to Andy Dalton, a former Bengals quarterback who is starting to become a little traveler. As Rosenthal wrote, Goff is not a quarterback where you hook your long-term wagon.
If interested, Tim Boyle, who started three games for Lions instead of Goff, as I did, was ranked 54th in Rosenthal’s rankings.
The strength of the famous Boyle’s arm, which everyone talks about, did not appear in the three that steadily improved the start of the regular season. To Atlanta and Seattle, Boyle looked like a stranded person for at least a few more years.
