George Kittle Jersey
Rams quarterback Jared Goff generated 517 passing yards (tied for eighth all time) on 68 pass attempts (tied for third all time) and 45 completions (tied for first all time) on Sunday against Tampa Bay. But the Rams lost the game George Kittle Jersey , 55-40, significantly undermining Goff’s achievements.On Monday, Goff said tht he found both positive and negative in his performance.“[T]here was a lot of good and a lot of bad,” Goff told reporters. “I think there’s some plays that I thought were really good and some were really bad. I think you try to evaluate each one by their own entity and try not to group any together. We dropped back, I think what it was 68 times or something, maybe even 70 including a sack or so. You try to take that with a grain of salt, knowing that it is going to be a little bit different sample size. Again, there was some stuff that I was really happy with. A lot of stuff in the pass game with myself up front and the receivers actually was good, but it wasn’t enough to win. We need to be a lot better.”Goff was pleased by the team’s ability to emerge from a 21-0 deficit to make the game interesting.“I think there is a lot of stuff that is surprisingly good that you take out of that game, especially from a pass-game standpoint that we were able to do late in that game,” Goff said. “To get ourselves all the way back from that hole Jason Verrett Jersey , it’s rare. We were close to finishing it off and unfortunately didn’t. There is no moral victory, but a lot of teams let that bury them early on and aren’t able to climb out. Unfortunately we were, but it wasn’t enough. I think just early on, like we’ve talked about, just getting everything rolling, staying smooth and trying to eliminate some of the mental errors and some of the stuff that is easily fixable.”The deep hole that necessitated a heavy emphasis on passing made Goff feel like he was back in Berkeley.“[I]t did feel like college,” he said. “It felt a lot like Cal. I know that’s not a world that we want to live in, it’s not built for success that way. Unfortunately, we were down early and had to use that as our game plan and I don’t think that’s something we want to live by.”Despite plenty of criticism for Goff’s errors in Sunday’s loss, Chris Simms saw plenty of positives from Goff’s performance. The attached clip from Simms’ Unbuttoned podcast elaborates on that point.Regardless of Goff’s overall showing, the 3-1 Rams now need to make the quick turnaround for a division showdown against the 3-1 Seahawks in Seattle on Thursday night. Making the game more important is the fact that the 49ers are 3-0 Joe Montana Jersey , and currently in first place in the NFC West.

Watson/Getty ImagesThe San Francisco 49ers took a few risks this offseason with some of the players they added. Linebacker next to Fred Warner was a position of need, and they went out and signed a player that likely won’t be ready for the season-opener. The team also seems to be depending on a player that has all the talent in the world but hasn’t played a full season since 2014.The 49ers added plenty of talent this offseason, though. Here are the four best moves John Lynch made this offseason.Addressing the offensive line from a value standpointI’m in the camp that you don’t have to spend big on the interior offensive line. I get wanting to protect your quarterback on edge. Selecting guys like Joe Staley on Mike McGlinchey early makes sense. I love that Lynch rewarded Mike Person for his toughness with a three-year contract. The deal is only worth $8.25 million, and is team-friendly, like usual. Is the likelihood of Person regressing to journeymen status high? Sure. The contract felt more like a culture-building deal.Aside from that, the 49ers scoured the waiver wire for offensive lineman that has played all over the line. Since January, the team has signed seven offensive linemen, not counting Person. In Kyle Shanahan’s system Dre Greenlaw Jersey , the emphasis isn’t on the interior guys, as he runs a lot of stretch zone and play-action. You need competent guys. The team should be able to find at least one capable body that fits what they want to do.Adding athleticism to the rosterOne area that stood out when watching the 49ers was the lack of athleticism on both sides of the ball last year. There are plenty of athletic players. There weren’t players that are big-time athletes. That’s why taking chances on a Kwon Alexander, or a Jason Verrett makes sense. The trade for Dee Ford. The two wide receivers drafted, even Tim Harris in the sixth-round. The Niners needed to inject some athleticism on the roster, and they did. You’d see defenders in space last year, and there wasn’t much confidence that they’d be able to finish the play. Flip that around to the other side of the ball, and outside of maybe three players, I didn’t see a skill player that could consistently get a big chunk. Tevin Coleman, Deebo Samuel, Jalen Hurd, and getting Jerick McKinnon back should change that.Covering your basesSpeaking of Coleman Dre Greenlaw San Francisco 49ers Jersey , one thing that the team did, save the safety position, is cover their bases in the event of an injury. At safety, a guy like D.J. Reed Jr. or Antone Exum can fill in at either spot. Jordan Matthews is a prime example here. He can play early if one of the younger guys isn’t ready to take the next step. The Niners added some lesser-known names at defensive tackle and linebacker as well. The addition of Coleman could help in several ways, too. The depth chart heading into this year looks a lot more promising than it did one year ago.Addressing your biggest needBelieve it or not, teams go into the offseason with a significant need and enter the season with the same need still a question mark. A couple of weeks ago, Richard Sherman said “we needed guys that could hit the quarterback. That was not the case with Lynch. The 49ers couldn’t get after the quarterback or generate turnovers. Lucky for them, they had the No. 2 overall pick in the draft. Nick Bosa is going to be able to solve both of those issues. It wouldn’t be fair to pin that all on a rookie.The trade for Dee Ford was criticized by many. In the Niners position, this is a gamble you take every time. A future second-round pick, and a contract that doesn’t handicap your team for several years. For a player that is coming off a career year and will remain in an environment where he’s not asked to do it all? That was a no-brainer.
