Detroit Lions GM Brad Holmes says Jared Goff is ‘set up for success’

As we get closer and closer to the start of the 2022 season, the chatter has started to head up again that this will be a make-or-break season for Detroit Lions quarterback, Jared Goff.

Goff has looked solid so far during training camp and he was flawless in his only preseason appearance against the Atlanta Falcons. (His only incompletion was a drop.)

In his first season with the Lions, Goff struggled out of the gates, but to be honest, he did not exactly have much to work with on the offensive side of the ball.

That being said, the Lions made some moves during the offseason and that, coupled with some players returning from injury, gives Goff plenty of options.

Detroit Lions GM Brad Holmes says Jared Goff is ‘set up for success’

Detroit Lions general manager Brad Holmes does not want to say, “no excuses” for Jared Goff but he does think he is “set up for success.”

Here is what Holmes had to say during a recent interview.

From ESPN:

“I respect what he’s done. He kind of battled through all of it, but he knows he’s gotta play well,” Lions general manager Brad Holmes said. “So, it’s not about just us putting the stuff around him, and he can just be the same person, he knows that he’s gotta up his play as well.

“I think it’s a two-way street, but we’re fully behind him and that’s what [coach] Dan [Campbell] and I said this offseason was to get him some help, make sure he’s supported and put him in the best position to succeed and I think we’ve done that. But, yeah, he’s gotta play and he knows that.”

“I don’t want to say, ‘No excuses,’ but I do think the more weapons and the better resources that you surround your quarterback with is just better and it helps them out more,” Holmes said.

“You could say that for any quarterback. [Goff] will obviously have more coming into this year. I really admire and appreciate what he did with what he worked with last year. I wouldn’t say it’s no excuses, but we just expect him to be set up for success.”

Nation, do you agree with Brad Holmes that Jared Goff is ‘set up for success’?
