Watching NFL playoff games, save for those involving friends, has not interested Jared Goff.
The Rams quarterback is in the midst of an offseason that came too soon. His team finished 9-7 and missed the postseason for the first time in coach Sean McVay’s three seasons as coach.
McVay spent the last two weeks remaking his staff.
Goff laments the loss of defensive coordinator Wade Phillips, special teams coordinator John Fassel and running backs coach Skip Peete. But he trusts McVay implicitly and welcomes the addition of new defensive coordinator Brandon Staley and offensive coordinator Kevin O’Connell.
“I think we’re moving in the right direction,” Goff said Sunday before participating in the California Strong celebrity softball game at Pepperdine University.
A year after playing in the Super Bowl, Goff has plenty of time to ponder what happened this season and prepare for the next one when the Rams move into a new stadium in Inglewood.
