The 2016 season clearly didn’t go the way that Jared Goff wanted it to. In order to improve in 2017, Goff is working with some of the highest profile quarterback coaches around.
“Los Angeles Rams quarterback Jared Goff, coming off a trying rookie season, has been working with noted quarterback coaches Tom House and Adam Dedeaux,” Alden Gonzalez of ESPN reported. “House and Dedeaux run 3DQB, a quarterback training facility based in Los Angeles. And one of their many notable clients is reigning MVP Matt Ryan.”
Ryan is not the only high profile quarterback to work with 3DQB. As Gonzalez detailed, House and Dedeaux have worked with Drew Brees, Tom Brady, Blake Bortles, Alex Smith, Andy Dalton, Carson Palmer, Joe Flacco, Marcus Mariota, Eli Manning and Case Keenum.
Goff has a lot of improving to do. The 2016 No. 1 pick got into seven games in his rookie season and completed 54.6 percent of his passes for 1,089 yards with five touchdowns, seven interceptions, and a 63.6 passer rating.
Whether he can significantly improve remains to be seen. But if nothing else, the Rams and their fans have to be encouraged by him taking this step. Goff’s quest towards becoming an elite quarterback will certainly be helped by working with guys who have coached so many of the NFL’s best.
