Just ask New England Patriots icon Tom Brady http://www.clevelandbrownsteamonline.com/sione-takitaki-jersey
, who won his five Super Bowls over a five-year span. Or the San Francisco 49ers, whose dynasty was created by quarterback Joe Montana. Thanks to his dominance in San Fran for over a decade, the 49ers became the team of the '80s and much of the '90s.And when you take a look at some of the NFL's worst teams (hello Cleveland Browns, Chicago Bears and New York Jets) Sheldrick Redwine Jersey
, you'll notice how these teams change starting quarterbacks every year. That's just what a bad football team does. As of now, most teams seem to have a quarterback who is hands-down their starter for the long-term future. But a handful of teams need to start looking for a new one.Here are eight of those squads, along with the quarterbacks they should try to land. Rams quarterback Jared Goff had a chance to go from being the first overall pick to a Super Bowl winner faster than any other quarterback in league history, but Sunday night’s performance showed that he might not be as far along the learning curve as it seemed earlier in the season.Among the things that threw Goff and the rest of the Rams offense was the way the Patriots defense disguised what they were doing by switching from one look to another once head coach Sean McVay’s communication to the quarterback was cut off. They also used more zone defense than usual as a way of keeping Goff off his toes.“We wanted to make it tough on him Kaleb McGary Jersey
,” safety Devin McCourty said, via Albert Breer of SI.com. “We knew we couldn’t just give him the same looks, because he does a good job with McVay of being able to lead defenses and get to the play they want. So we knew if we switched it up and made it tough, it would give us a chance.”The NFL is a copycat league Kendall Sheffield Jersey
, so it’s a good bet that other teams are going to try to do similar things to Goff and the Rams next season. That makes it clear where Goff needs to go this offseason.“I’d like to play better in a moment like this,” Goff said, via Mike Silver of NFL Media. “And I will be better because of it. I’ll try to learn from it, and process it John Cominsky Jersey
, and get better moving forward. I understand all that. But it’s pretty tough to think about right now, because we had a great opportunity, and we didn’t capitalize on it. It’s my job to lead us. I didn’t get it done, and it sucks.”Goff’s shown enough promise that it’s fair to expect him to be able to learn from a rough night in Atlanta Qadree Ollison Jersey
, but there will likely be a far amount of curiosity about how that process played out come September.
