NFL quarterback No. 19 – Jared Goff, Detroit Lions
While I’m high on Fields, I’m equally as low on Jared Goff. The only reason I have him this high is because of his 45-37-1 record as a starter. Keep in mind, that 42 of those wins came with the Rams who have a tremendous coach and a loaded roster.
I know everyone thinks that Dan Campbell is the next great coach and folks will run through a wall for him. The effort is great and can elevate a team substantially, but Goff doesn’t have all the abilities of an elite quarterback.
He needs a friendly system and a great coordinator to make him successful. I don’t think he has either in Detroit and it will be another disappointing season for him.
No. 18 – Tua Tagovailoa, Miami Dolphins
Tua Tagovailoa is a strong one, he has a 13-8 record as a starting quarterback in the NFL but has been benched multiple times for Ryan Fitzpatrick in the past. Honestly, that has to mess with a guy’s confidence and I’m not sure why they have been so back and forth with him in Miami.
With the addition of Tyreek Hill and a stout defense, the pressure will be on Tagovailoa in 2022 to lead this team to the playoffs. While they overachieved in 2021, they also had one of the easiest schedules in the NFL.
I think this roster is good enough to put him at No. 18, but I don’t think he is good enough to get this team to the playoffs in a loaded AFC.
