The Los Angeles Rams are in desperate need of a quarterback, and their quarterback situation has gone awry in the past two weeks.
On Thursday night, they let the team’s third-round pick, Goff, go to the New York Giants with the fourth overall pick.
The Rams went from the No. 4 pick in the draft to the third pick.
They had drafted two quarterbacks in the third round, so the team had two first-round picks and could use both.
They could have taken Goff in the second round, or they could have traded up for him with the No-Pick pick.
So they went to the Giants for the No, fourth overall selection.
What could go wrong with this trade?
Goff has shown to be a solid backup.
He completed 65.4 percent of his passes in three starts for the Rams.
That’s the best mark of his career.
However, he has been inconsistent with accuracy and his completion percentage has dipped in each of the past three games.
His numbers are a mixed bag.
He has thrown four touchdowns and one interception.
He also threw three interceptions in Week 1 against the Tennessee Titans.
Goff had three touchdowns in the first four games of his rookie season.
The Giants have a new coach in Steve Spagnuolo, and he’s been much more aggressive with his pass protection.
Goff has struggled to get the ball out quickly on short passes.
He threw for 523 yards in three games last season.
He’s thrown just 11 touchdown passes in his past two starts, and that was the season opener against the New Orleans Saints.
The last two games, he’s thrown six touchdown passes and zero interceptions.
He is the No 12 quarterback in the NFL and is the third-ranked quarterback in total yards per game.
Goff will be back for another two weeks and he’ll need to play well.
