Goff’s lineage was less American royalty than All-American, as the son of Major League Baseball catcher Jerry Goff. There was never any quotes about “thinking he’s arrived” after Goff’s freshman season, particularly after going winless against FBS opponents.
Looking at the statistics from each junior season, both Goff and Rosen have a green light to air it out, averaging more than 40 throws per game. With completion percentages above 60 and an average of more than eight yards per attempt, the stat lines are solid and the yards per game totals are high enough to rank among the best in the country when graded out against their peers. Even for a quarterback, both Goff and Rosen have what basketball statistics would determine is a high usage rate.
“We need to see a guy jump in the stands and sit in a seat? I mean, come on. What are we doing here?” Francesa said. “This is what the league needs, right? The league is in a state of panic is what it is right now. They’re playing in front of stadiums they can’t believe have empty seats in them, their ratings aren’t any good; the quality of play is lousy. Even (Sunday) night, I’m watching Atlanta and New England and the game’s a bore.”
Francesa was not done there. “No one has been a closer follower of the league in the last 40 years than I have been,” he added. “I’ve done it my whole life as an adult. The league is in trouble right now. A lot of trouble.
Francesa said the NFL likes to tell everyone they are fine but cited CBS and Disney stocks being down and ratings dropping 15% over the last two years before lauding Cowboys owner Jerry Jones.
