Rankings show nine QB, coach combos better than Jared Goff, Dan Campbell

A recent Sports Illustrated story from Matt Verderame ranked Jared Goff and Dan Campbell as the No. 10 quarterback/head coach tandem in the NFL.

Heading into their fourth season together, the list has Goff ranked as the No. 12 QB and Campbell slotted as the 10th-best head coach in the league.

"For years, the Lions were a punchline. Now, they’re one of the league’s elite teams largely because Campbell and Goff are one of the better power duos in the league," Verderame wrote. "Over the past two seasons, Goff has totaled 9,013 passing yards and 59 touchdown passes behind an elite offensive line. Now with a fresh contract for Goff and Amon-Ra St. Brown, the Lions are loaded up for years."

Which nine QB/coach combos are ranked higher?

  1. Patrick Mahomes, Andy Reid
  2. Lamar Jackson, John Harbaugh
  3. Matthew Stafford, Sean McVay
  4. C.J. Stroud, DeMeco Ryans
  5. Jordan Love, Matt LaFleur
  6. Justin Herbert, Jim Harbaugh
  7. Joe Burrow, Zac Taylor
  8. Josh Allen, Sean McDermott

We can think of some people in Detroit who will say there are at least two pairings that should be ranked behind Goff/Campbell...

In 2023, Goff had his best season in Detroit and arguably the best season of his career. Completing a career-best 67.3% of his passes, he totaled 4,575 yards, 30 touchdowns and only 12 interceptions.

Still only 29 years old, Goff likely has the best years of his career ahead of him.

When the Lions hired Campbell as the head coach in 2021, many people criticized the decision, citing that his only head coach experience came as the Dolphins' interim head coach in 2015 and he had never been a coordinator before.

Fast forward to this offseason, those same people view Campbell as one of the better coaches in the NFL. In fact, 10 feels a bit low...

Detroit has improved its record every season under Campbell and the expectations are higher than ever in 2024.
