Will the Lions bench Jared Goff? Dan Campbell calls out QB in press conference, won't make change yet

Asia's Tech News Daily

Dan Campbell went off on Jared Goff.

The Lions fell to the Bengals 34-11 on Sunday in a total rout by any measure of the word. Lions quarterback Jared Goff, though, bears a brunt of the responsibility thanks to another below-average performance: Goff completed 28 of 42 passes for 202 yards and an interception in the losing effort.

Goff (and two first-round picks) was traded from the Rams to the Lions in exchange for Matthew Stafford and some more, and the returns have been less-than inspiring for the former No. 1 overall pick so far this season.

So uninspiring, in fact, that it led to the Lions head coach to lay into his starting quarterback afterward.

Will the Lions bench Jared Goff?

As of now, it looks as though Jared Goff will remain the Detroit starting quarterback, as Dan Campbell said as much following the Week 6 matchup with the Bengals.

Campbell, while seemingly disappointed with Goff, said there was no consideration to bench him for backup David Blough. Blough has taken snaps for the Lions over six games in 2019 and 2020.

The Lions head coach let it be known, though, that he’s expecting more from his quarterback moving forward:

“I feel like he needs to step up more than he has.”

#Lions HC Dan Campbell on QB Jared Goff today:

“I don’t feel like we can accurately judge him one way or another. … Now, I will say this: I feel like he needs to step up more than he has. I think he needs to help us just like everybody else. …

More Campbell on Goff:

“I think he’s gonna need to put a little bit of weight on his shoulders, and it’s time to step up, make some throws and do some things.”

“I don’t feel like we can accurately judge him one way or another,” Campbell said postgame. “Now, I will say this: I feel like he needs to step up more than he has. I think he needs to help us, just like everybody else. I think he’s gonna need to put a little bit of weight on his shoulders here.”

The Lions remain the NFL’s only winless team after the Jaguars picked up a W in London on Sunday morning.

In Goff’s defense, the team isn’t exactly fielding a who’s who of receiving targets this season: His top two receiving targets on Sunday were tight end TJ Hockenson and running back DeAndre Swift, with Kalif Raymond and Amon-Ra St. Brown the two leading wideout targets.

The Lions also don’t have a real plan at QB outside of Goff: Blough and Tim Doyle (currently on IR) are the two QBs behind Goff on the depth chart.

Many expect the team to make a change at passer in the coming seasons, but if the Lions keep stinking it up with their current QB, expect them to hit the Goff switch at some point in the near future.
