As we expected, Moss responded to Griffin’s series of tweets. He spoke with CSN Mid Atlantic about his comments, and wanted to make it clear that he wasn’t trying to bad-mouth Griffin in the way he thought.
Moss says he believes RGIII should still be a starting quarterback, but points to how he handled Shanahan’s exit as a reason why he doesn’t have a job.
At this point, there isn’t much more to say on the situation. Moss and Griffin have each shared their thoughts, and it’s probably time to move on from this incident.
Goff, off and winless as a rookie, posted the type of nearly perfect performance that’s associated with the game’s elite QBs (22-of-28 passing, 292 yards, three TDs, 145.8 rating). He’s looking the part of franchise quarterback he was expected to be when LA drafted him No. 1 overall last year.
All that said, neither Goff or Gurley is close to being the Rams’ best player. That’s Aaron Donald, the most dominant defensive player in the league, who finished off the Niners’ furious comeback with a ferocious takedown of 49ers QB Brian Hoyer. Unfortunately for Donald, he hasn’t received the type of newfound support Goff and Gurley got, and that will dash any high hopes LA has for making the NFC playoffs.
Donald’s dominance aside, LA made Hoyer look like he was back with the Patriots and channeling Tom Brady. The 49ers had zero touchdowns in their first two games against Carolina and Seattle, two recent NFC powers with top defenses. They had five TDs against the Rams, and had game flow been different, Carlos Hyde would have gashed their run defense a lot more �� similar to how the Redskins powered through it in Week 2.
