OK, we could see this Wentz breakout for the 3-1 Eagles happening after the team invested so much in improving the offense, plus the fact that Wentz flashed plenty as a rookie. But Goff, who looked awful as the 2016 first overall pick, has gone from 0-7 to 3-1 in an unbelievable hurry. Goff got a new left tackle (Andrew Whitworth) and four new key receivers (Sammy Watkins, Robert Woods, Cooper Kupp and Gerald Everett). And, oh yeah, he has play-calling wunderkind Sean McVay as his head coach instead of anti-offense Jeff Fisher.
So much for these guys not being Jameis Winston and Marcus Mariota, Deshaun Watson and Mitchell Trubisky (we think) or even Rosen and Darnold. Credit the Eagles and Rams for tailoring everything around their QBs’ strengths to welcome them into the realm of solid starters.
