Jared Goff praises Detroit Lions fans as being far more passionate than football fans in Los Angeles during a 97.1 The Ticket segment!
Detroit Lions quarterback Jared Goff is off to a strong start in the 2023 season, having led the team to an impressive 3-1 record that includes victories over the Kansas City Chiefs and Green Bay Packers on national television. As part of the blockbuster Matthew Stafford trade that brought him from the Los Angeles Rams, he's had the unique opportunity to play in both cities, and he's giving a significant shoutout to the passionate fan base in the Motor City.
Jared Goff loves Detroit's passion
Goff made a special appearance on 97.1 The Ticket this morning, where he discussed the Lions' current status as they gear up to host the winless Carolina Panthers this weekend. He also expressed his appreciation for the passionate Lions fan base that has created a lively atmosphere at Ford Field during home games against Seattle and Atlanta, as well as their ability to take over Lambeau Field, making it an unforgettable experience.
“Oh yeah, oh yeah,” he said when asked if emotional swings are more prevalent in Detroit than Los Angeles.
“But it’s mostly because of the passion. It’s how much our fans care and how much true energy and time and passion they put into it. It’s not a bad thing. It’s just a thing to be aware of. It’s a great thing, honestly. When you’re winning it’s a great thing, we love it, it builds momentum.”
But Goff knows that the team can't afford to get ahead of themselves with plenty of the schedule still ahead of them.
“But it’s something to be aware of where we can’t get over our skis when we’re 3-1 through four games with 13 games left,” he said.
