Detroit Lions Trending Down: Jared Goff Off, Offensive Line Failed, Jameson Williams Great + Glenn

Of course I spend the last ten weeks shouting “brand new Lions” from the rooftops, only for the Detroit Lions to be humiliated in front of their largest audience of the year. We’ve got lots of movers this week, and it’s safe to say it’s a bear market.

As a reminder, stock report is reflective of changes in player performance and expectations. If a player who is expected to play well plays well, or vice versa, they may not see a change in stock.

Stock down: Jared Goff, QB
Stats: 29/44, 332 yards, 2 TD, 3 fumbles lost

I thought we left the days of starting every stock report with Jared Goff in 2022. Unfortunately, that’s not the case. Since some point in mid-October, Goff has started to look more uneasy each week. Last week against the Bears was the worst we had seen yet, but he was able to rebound well enough to overcome his mistakes. This week, he had no such rebound, spiraling into the Jared Goff of 2021. The offensive play calling quickly made it evident that Ben Johnson couldn’t trust Goff to do much in the second half.

Before you say it, yes Goff was under a lot of pressure. His offensive line did him no favors Thursday. However, one of Goff’s weakest traits since he entered the league has been his ability to navigate the pocket and keep his eyes downfield while he’s under pressure. He showed tremendous growth in that area through the first month or two of the season, but the progress is quickly unwinding. Thursday, he looked flustered and unable to compose himself, let alone his offense. He missed receivers, lost the football, and was just throwing wobbly passes on passes where he was untouched. Inexcusable football from Goff on Thursday.
