Jared Goff is our starting QB

Two years after they took his contract to help facilitate the Matthew Stafford trade, the Detroit Lions are ready to go all-in on their future with Jared Goff.

At least that’s the strong impression Lions coach Dan Campbell and general manager Brad Holmes have given after Goff capped the self-admitted best season of his career by leading the Lions to a 20-16 victory over the Green Bay Packers that gave the franchise its first winning record in five seasons.

Campbell called Goff “a perfect fit for what we do and what we ask,” and referred to him as “our quarterback” in recent days, and Holmes said at his end-of-season news conference Tuesday, “I don’t really know what the decision is” to make about Goff’s future.

“I never really considered him as a bridge,” Holmes said. “I think everyone else did. I think there’s a little bit of recency bias from what he had to go through last year.”

Run out of Los Angeles by Rams coach Sean McVay, Goff, the first pick of the 2016 NFL draft, struggled in his first season in Detroit as the Lions battled injuries on their offensive line and at the skill positions.
