I’ll partially agree. There was something off with Goff today. He was missing on throws he typically nails like a carney ringer, it wasn’t just the INT’s.
Someone once told me, long ago, you’ll be judged by how you carry yourself during your worst days.
If that’s true, I’m happy that man is our QB, because despite his crappy day, he gutted it out. He was clutch when it mattered. Never shaken, cool as a cucumber. I’m just glad we were playing the Bears, because a real team could have killed us today. What matters is, Goff weathered his own storm and put another W in the column.
Now it’s time to focus on giving Tom Grossi indigestion on Thursday.
I guess it’s lost during the experience that what Goff did today was the figurative embodiment of Dan Campbell’s kneecap speech.
Knocked down (int 1), got back up. Knocked down again (int 2), got back up taking off kneecap (late 1st half TD drive), Int 3 happens. But he keeps on coming at them, and by the time it’s over Goff and the Lions are the only ones left standing. The Bears are looking for their kneecaps.
Isn’t that exactly what Campbell said this team would be? And they lived it today.
