Who’s a better QB? …Love, Goff or Caleb Williams

Same anti Goff posters they just coming from other direction . The still mad Lions didn’t draft way they wanted. Even when we win SB the same anti Goff people will say now we need to trade Goff, they will not say lets go for two it will be now trade him. They want to be right even if he retires a Lion they will be after him

Some posters just can’t handle being wrong

Goff has had two losing seasons in the NFL. Both on a rebuilding team.
He’s been to the playoffs 5 times.
He’s been to the NFC game twice.
He’s been to the Super Bowl once.
He’s been to the Pro Bowl 3 times.
There’s no competition, at this point.

I was trying to pick a mobile qb who had sustained success for a period of time in the NFL. But your point is very valid, the short end are guys like richardson and RGIII. The staff was begging RGIII to slide and he wouldn’t. To me guys like rodgers are still pocket passers who can manipulate the pocket and extend plays IF they have to. We are watching Lamar try and do that.

Michael Vick. Dog scandal ruined his career. He was special.

Goff is by far the superior QB. It’s not just about arm strength or athleticism. These guys need to make split second decisions. Goff has been to two conference finals and a Superbowl because of his ability to make good decisions.

Yes, i am aware of michael vick. But he played for a long time and has success. Cam newton was done within 10 years. I am simply talkong about preferring a 15-18 sustain career from a pocket passer over the potentially fragile career of a mobile qb.

I agree 100%. I have never desired a running QB. A passing QB with some escape ability, yes. I don’t know how old you are but I loved and hated Fran Tarkenton equally. If you ever got to watch him play, You’d know what I mean. He killed us.

Peyton Manning showed me that there is more than 1 way to bring another dimension to the QB position. I mean that guy was as bad as Goff when it came to mobility but he dominated in ways that I’ve only ever seen him do. That even includes the GOAT, Brady. Of course, you pretty much have to do away with the offensive coordinator to do what Peyton did, which really limits the pool of guys who will ever try it.

We’re talking about pocket passers vs dual threat style QBs. Purdy is clearly a pocket passer. No question.

Your talking about pocket awareness and all successful pocket passers need that to some degree.

My comments from the beginning were about Athletic QB’s vs. non athletic QB’s.
A QB that can extend plays and get a 1st down with their legs if needed.
Not a dual threat QB where plays are designed for him to run.
Purdy, Herbert, Burrow, Mahomes, Stroud are all examples.
They are all pocket passers that can extend plays, throw on the run and make a 1st down with legs if needed.
