I couldn't figure out how to make a poll directly on the website.
I voted I would rather play vs Jared Goff, I watched the highlights of John Wolford last weak vs Arizona and he seems more dangerous compared to what we just saw from Goff.
He can run and escape pressure, he can move out the pocket, he can run for first downs. He also doesn't seem to be scared to throw down field.
Goff might just be washed up, I wouldn't be surprised if Wolford beats him out for the starting job next season.
That being said I left a 3rd option that it doesn't matter who is their QB, its how our offense matches up vs their defense.
I'm picking I'd rather play Goff but the Rams defensive angle is a very legit concern as well.
With that defense, they're a tough out against anyone. Your QB question is a good one, and one I've been contemplating all week.
If Goff plays, it's going to be very difficult if not impossible for him to grip the football properly, and as a result, his accuracy should be off, and he will have a hard time getting any zip on his throws. That to me spells turnover machine. However, he does have valuable playoff experience and that's always a factor to consider.
Wolford on the other hand has one game of experience. He's basically untested. More importantly, he has zero playoff experience. The playoffs are a different animal vs the regular season. I think that's a huge factor, and why I think we might see Goff if he's able to go at all.
Given their less than ideal QB situation, I don't think either of them will be much of a factor unless they're turning the ball over. I suspect the Rams will lean very heavily on the run with the occasional short pass/checkdowns. We have some key injuries on the DL, and we're going to have to step up and find a way to stop the run if we hope to win this game.
I think it's going to be a very close, very hard-fought and low-scoring game down to the wire, and I think we win by a FG in a nail-biter. I'll have my blood pressure meds handy for sure.
