Goff has been working on reacting post-snap this offseason

In his recent MMQB column for Sports Illustrated, Albert Breer broke down what exactly Goff has been working on during OTAs and minicamp. Breer writes that “the Rams spend their spring trying to master their own offense,” and that “the offensive calls going in this spring routinely put Goff and the offense in a spot where they have to react post-snap.”

This means Goff is focusing on improving at adapting to what the defense calls, and going through his progressions rapidly with little time to react to what he’s seeing.

It seems to be paying off so far, as Breer has been told that “Goff’s done a better job this spring in more quickly getting to his second read, then to his third read or checkdown.” Ever since Goff started to break out, his success has been diminished by detractors who credit McVay for most of the Rams’ success.

Here is the bit from Breer:
from: https://www.si.com/nfl/2019/06/24/jamei ... tract-year

A few weeks back, in this space, Jared Goff explained to us how the Rams were working on becoming more adaptable offensively—and a staffer there gave me a pretty good example of how that’s worked a little while back. Because the Rams spend their spring trying to master their own offense, they aren’t pushing up against what their defense might call. So the offensive calls going in this spring routinely put Goff and the offense in a spot where they have to react post-snap. If the call in is ideal against zone rather than the man defense Goff is seeing? Or if one built to beat a two-high safety look meets a single-high safety after the snap? That’s where Goff and the offense have to adapt. And as I’ve heard, Goff’s done a better job this spring in more quickly getting to his second read, then to his third read or checkdown. Which is how you improve against defenses that show you something different from what you saw on tape, which is what the Rams were up against in the Super Bowl.

My guess is that this issue takes precedence over personnel groupings (11 personnel). I don't think the main problem (or those times when there was a problem) was relying on 11 personnel. I think the problem was adjustments. That includes post-snap reads by the qb but I think it could also include sight adjustments by the WRs in response to post-snap reads.

I think this bodes well for us, but I stress we are only as good as our OL.

I think that this area is also where Cooper Kupp was missed the most. Josh Reynolds was better than expected overall... But the drop off was more than noticeable. And then they had Woods in the slot a lot. Woods was better there than expected as well... But again... they're not Kupp. Reynolds wasnt Woods out wide. Woods wasn't Kupp. So my point is that I think it's great they are emphasizing this area rather than relying strictly on personnel beating their guy. Because when they are all healthy life was a lot easier for Goff. They didnt have to worry about sight adjustments so much because one of those guys were going to win a lot more times than not. So when a key cog go's down..... now the Ram QB has a better plan to keep the chains moving than what they had going last season. I like it, I like it a lot.
