Goff On Super Bowl Loss: ‘It Kills, It’s Terrible’

Los Angeles Rams quarterback Jared Goff was left hurting after his team’s loss to the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LIII on Sunday.

Goff completed 19 of 38 passes for 229 yards with an interception as the Rams suffered a 13-3 loss in Atlanta.

The 24-year-old said the offense failed to live up to expectations, rueing their performance after the Rams managed to hold Tom Brady and the Patriots to 13 points.

“Kills, kills and it hurts me so much just knowing how well our defense played against that team, against Tom, to play that well defensively and us not hold up our end of the bargain,” Goff told a news conference.

McVay: I Was Out-Coached

Los Angeles Rams head coach Sean McVay conceded he was out-coached after their 13-3 loss to the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LIII.

After a stunning season in which the Rams racked up 527 points, McVay – regarded as perhaps the best offensive coach in the NFL – saw his offense muster just a field goal in the lowest-scoring Super Bowl in history.

The Rams were shut out in the first half and started the game with a Super Bowl-record eighth successive punts.

Montana Tru

Trumaine Johnson Highlights

Montana CB Trumaine Johnson was selected by the Rams in the 3rd round of the draft with the number 2 pick.  Montana Tru was the 65th pick overall and one look at his highlight film shows part of the reason why.

Johnson is 6′ 1″ and 204 pounds.  He is polished and athletic.  He has speed and agility and the height to also match up with receivers.  Johnson is NFL ready despite playing in the FBS.

The Rams took Johnson with the 2nd pick of the 3rd round.  Fisher knows Johnson well as  his own son played DB at Montana.  He is very familiar with Johnson’s strengths and abilities.

Making Me Look Good

Earlier this weekend, I wrote about some of the hot stocks to watch in the upcoming NFL Draft. One of those picks was Michael Floyd.  With the latest news, Mr. Floyd is making me look good.

Michael Floyd has been invited to the NFL Draft.  This generally means that the NFL believes Michael has a good shot of going fairly high up in the first round.  Only players like that get an invite to come to New York.  The latest buzz has Floyd possibly going as the FIRST wide receiver in this year’s draft ahead of Justin Blackmon.  Blackmon has long been held as the wide receiver who would go first.  That is until after Floyd’s magnificent Pro Day.  Now, everything has shifted.

Hall of Fame Game

There are conflicting, albeit secondhand reports, that the Hall of Fame game scheduled on August 7 between the Bears and Rams will not be played due to the lockout situation.  Even if the lockout is ended some sources say the game will not be played.

The NFL is denying this.  The Bears are denying this.  However, if you pay a visit to the NFL official site and click on Preseason Schedules, you get nothing.  No games show up.  That pretty much tells you that the preseason game situation has not been resolved.

Down To The Wire

The NFL season is about to come down to the wire.  One more Sunday and in some cases it’s the day to decide it all as a couple of divisions are still undecided.
