Patrick Mahomes II is absolutely filthy. Even the staunchest NFL haterz can't deny he's fun to watch. Also just had a gehrig Dieter sighting.

Awful offensive holding call by officials. Would’ve been 1&10 on 32. Hate when officials call something that’s not there. Don’t like it, but rather they miss something than phantom calls.

If that. Rams ran 45 plays in that half. That Dallas D is completely gassed and it's only halftime. Rams had 20 first downs in the half!!

Maybe a great QB gets them back in the game, but Dak isn't a great QB. A shame because I think Goff is overrated, but it won't show because he doesn't have to do anything in this one.

I'm not sure how high Goff is rated. He's been playing well, but after his hot start he cooled off and nobody thinks he's a top 5 guy right now.

What he is, though is this: A guy who can make the plays the Rams need him to in that offense while drawing a small paycheck, allowing them to pay guys like Robert Woods and Aaron Donald and Todd Gurley. 

I've said before, and I still believe this: Unless Goff stays on for relatively cheap, the Rams should just let him leave when it's contract time and find either a young guy in the draft or someone that's affordable in free agency and roll with them. 

Goff is good. I don't think anybody thinks he's great, at least not yet. And that's enough. With the way the NFL incentivizes the passing game, and with how advanced players are getting, even a guy who's just good can play really well.

Goff is a system QB......so far.  He definitely could develop into something much more.

The funny thing is that many laughed at the Rams when they signed Robert Woods, saying they completely overpaid. Who's laughing now, given how he works in this offense?

Goff does miss Cooper Kupp.  He is Goff's security blanket.
