Top 10 Things You Didn’t Know About Jared Goff! (NFL)


Los Angeles Rams quarterback Jared Thomas
Goff was selected first overall in the 2016 NFL Draft. EverythingTop10 is proud to present, “The
Top 10 Things You Didn’t Know About Jared Goff!” #10. Goff was born and raised in Novato, California,
and he is the only son of Jerry and Nancy Goff. He has a sister named Lauren. His father is a former Major League Baseball
catcher who played for the Montreal Expos, Pittsburgh Pirates, and Houston Astros. His father was also a Cal athlete, playing
as an all-conference and all-district catcher for the school’s Golden Bears baseball team. #9. Goff’s mother said, “When he was really
little – like, 5, – when they still did co-ed soccer, he would mow girls down. Not meaning to! We were like, ‘Jared, you can’t do that!’” His first youth-league football coach let
players choose their position, so at age 7, he jogged over to join the linemen. His father tracked down an assistant coach
and asked: “How about if he tries out at quarterback?” #8. Goff grew up as a San Francisco 49ers fan
and wears the number 16 as a tribute to Joe Montana, who played for the 49ers. Goff attended Marin Catholic High School in
Kentfield, California and graduated in 2012. He played for the football team, where he
threw for 7,687 yards and 93 touchdowns with 18 interceptions in three varsity seasons. #7. He was recruited by a number of college programs
and received scholarship offers from Boise State, Fresno State, and Washington State,
before choosing to attend and play for the University of California, Berkeley. He was a mid-year enrollee at Cal in January
2013 and joined the team for 2013 spring practices. #6. In August 2013, Goff was named the starting
quarterback for the 2013 season over redshirt freshman quarterback Zach Kline, becoming
the first true freshman quarterback in Cal history to start a season opener. He set 26 Cal records. This included passing yards (12,220), passing
yards per game (329.7), TD passes (96), completions (977), passing attempts (1,569), total offense
(12,086), and total plays (1,739). He is second, only to Aaron Rodgers on Cal’s
all-time list for passing efficiency (143.95). #5. After some Cal road victories, Goff would
get home at 3 a.m., crank up the music and order his slumbering roommates to come join
the fun. After home games, it was a live show: he was
known to invite the entire Cal marching band into the living room. #4. He majored in sociology in his time at Cal. After his junior season, he announced his
decision to forgo his senior season and enter the 2016 NFL Draft. His hands measured in at just over 9 inches
at the NFL Scouting Combine in February 2016, prompting some small-hand wringing about whether
his mitts could secure the football well enough in the NFL. Despite not excelling at the physical tests
at the combine, he still improved his draft stock with a strong showing in the positional
drills. He also reportedly scored a 36 on his Wonderlic
exam. #3. He appeared as a guest for the Outdoor Channel’s
“Gridiron Outdoors”, which is hosted by former football quarterback Mike Pawlawski
in 2016. Goff has an enzyme deficiency that does not
allow his body to break down proteins, including not being able to process red meat. #2. Goff roomed with right tackle Steven Moore
in college, and his old teammate did not have many great things to say about the QB when
it came to his Madden skills. Moore said, “He’s not very good at Madden;
he can’t read defenses in Madden. He can’t read defenses as good as he can
in person. I think that’s because he thinks, when he’s
playing quarterback, and he throws the ball, he knows he can lob it in to throw it straight,
and the [virtual] quarterback doesn’t do it. He gets frustrated with that type of stuff. Because he’s as good as he is, it makes
him worse at Madden.” #1. In the Rams’ debut on HBO’s “Hard Knocks”
in 2016, it was revealed that he did not know from which direction the sun rises. He is a fan of the Golden State Warriors,
and he has a golden retriever named Leo. He hates flying in economy class. He concedes his idea of picking out an outfit
is grabbing a shirt off the floor, giving it a sniff, and pulling it on if it passes
the smell test. One of his agents rolled his eyes when Goff
showed up to talk to reporters at the combine and hadn’t combed his hair, failing to capitalize
on the $80 haircut he had just gotten. That’s all folks! Please leave a like if you enjoyed the video

  1. If anything, the last Super Bowl proved that Goff is better – any QB can win with the Eagles' current roster. (No offense to Nick Foles you have to understand I'm a Cal fan ha ha)

  2. Wentz is way better because I personally think wentz had a better rookie season and this year well let’s just say he almost won MVP

  3. Given an straight out eye test ( of course it's matter of personal opinion). Carson Wentz is excellent and a terrific athlete. But he's plays rather robotic and mechanical with tremendous quarterback IQ. With Jared Goff. He has more of an natural flow to his game. More of an fluid ability to run, scramble, an quicker release, his footing is like an ballerina, lazer beam throws in tight windows and one of the strongest arms in the NFL in his position. Can't go wrong with either one. If I had to pick. It would be Carson Wentz. Love his overall football IQ.

  4. Now i got respect for Goff because he was and probably still is a 49er fan and his jersey says so too. But sorry we still will make lamb chops off yall this year… 49er faithful
