Black Twitter is the hottest social media site on the Internet right now, and it’s not hard to see why. The content is often hilarious, and the users are some of the funniest people on the Internet. Some of the funniest tweets come from people with names like @WhoopiGoldberg, @JamalWatson, @TebowEra, and @VanderpumpRules.
What is it about a person that makes them more likable to others? Why do some people stand out in a crowd? Quite often, most people gravitate toward a person for a reason.
Two years ago, I was trying to make a name for myself in music. I put out an EP, found a handful of like-minded like-minded producers, and put together a song or two. The response was overwhelmingly positive, and soon I was invited to play shows across the country. In this past year, I’ve been fortunate enough to play hundreds of shows, spanning from small clubs to larger festivals. I’ve been able to reach so many new people and have been able to meet a lot of wonderful people. The collaborative musical journey has been a huge part of that growth.
It’s nearly time for the new NFL season, and some familiar faces have moved on, like former Los Angeles Rams quarterback Jared Goff, who is now with the Detroit Lions. For a time, Goff’s split with the Rams was well-documented, but now that he’s in Detroit’s tiny market, NFL fans may not hear about him as often as they did during his five seasons in Los Angeles.
So, how does Goff feel now that we’re seven months away from the Rams agreeing to trade Goff and selections to the Lions in exchange for Matthew Stafford?
He sounds like a someone who has moved on from their ex.
Jared Goff, the Rams’ quarterback, was dealt to the Lions.
Despite what you may hear, Jared Goff had a lot of success as the Rams’ quarterback. Goff was selected first overall in the 2016 NFL Draft by the Los Angeles Rams, and despite a disappointing rookie season, he went on to become a Pro Bowler in 2017, passing for 3,804 yards, 28 touchdowns, and seven interceptions.
Goff was arguably one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL in 2018, and the Rams were one of the best teams in the league. The Cal product passed for 4,688 yards, 32 touchdowns, and 12 interceptions, leading the Rams to a 13-3 record and earning him Pro Bowl accolades once again. That year, they even made it to the Super Bowl, but were defeated by Tom Brady and the New England Patriots.
Goff then had a good but not great year in 2019, throwing for 4,638 yards, 22 touchdowns, and 16 interceptions before faltering badly in 2020. Last season, he only threw for 3,952 yards, 20 touchdowns, and 13 interceptions in 15 games for the Rams, as he battled with accuracy before sustaining a thumb injury late in the season. Goff fought despite the discomfort in his thumb in the playoffs, helping the Rams beat the Seattle Seahawks in the wild-card round, but they fell to the Green Bay Packers in the divisional round.
This past summer, the Rams saw an opportunity to improve at quarterback and dealt Goff, two first-round choices, and a third-round pick to the Lions for Matthew Stafford.
According to NFL.com, Goff claimed he “truly liked” his time with the Rams after the trade, but that the choice to move on was “mutual” since he was on a club that didn’t want him.
What is he saying now, though?
The quarterback seems to have moved on from his split with the Rams.
Goff recently appeared on The Dan Patrick Show, and Patrick couldn’t resist asking him about his split with the Rams. But it seems that he has moved on from a team that no longer likes him.
On the Aug. 27 episode, Goff told Patrick, “It’s the same way as anything else; I have folks that like me, and you concentrate on that.” “You concentrate on what you have and all the wonderful things in your life. It’s a requirement of the league; it’s a necessary element of the business. I’m sure it’s not exactly the same, but you guys go through that in the media with ESPN or whatever you’re at right now. You have people who love you and others who no longer do, and that is the way things are.”
Patrick later said that he is still “enraged with ESPN.”
Goff said, “And you may be angry.” “Of course, there are still parts of me that are, but I have certain things to look forward to here that I am thrilled about.”
Goff may just be attempting to say the right things, or he could have moved on from that infamous split. In any case, he has some work to do if he wants to regain recognition as one of the league’s best quarterbacks.
The Lions had high hopes for Jared Goff.

Goff has spent the last few years in a position where his team has had great expectations, but with the Lions, he won’t have to worry about living up to them. He just has to perform well enough to earn a starting spot in the NFL and establish himself as one of the best quarterbacks in the game.
In 2021, Detroit is unlikely to win many games. It had the worst defense in the NFL last season and, aside from tight end T.J. Hockenson, doesn’t have many offensive weapons heading into the new season. So, if Goff and his supporting cast can make lemonade out of lemons, he has a chance to reclaim the respect he once had.
Goff and the Lions, as well as Stafford and the Rams, will have an intriguing season. Everyone will be watching to see who won their blockbuster trade this offseason.
