Shannon Sharpe says Jared Goff should be above Tom Brady in ‘bulljive’ quarterback power rankings

Tom Brady ‘has NOT played better’ than Detroit Lions quarterback Jared Goff, claims Shannon Sharpe as the pundit slams power rankings as ‘bulljive’

Shannon Sharpe has criticized a bizarre NFL quarterback power rankings, suggesting Tom Brady should be beneath resurgent Detroit Lions star Jared Goff.

Often-maligned in his final years in Los Angeles, and since his 2021 move to Motown, Goff has been quietly impressive with 19 touchdowns and 7 interceptions this campaign. 

Though in the latest Pro Football Focus QB rankings, Goff was ranked 28th, compared to Tom Brady’s position in 10th — despite an inconsistent season by his lofty standards. 

Shannon Sharpe pointed out what a honorable season Jared Goff (C) is putting together in ’22

‘This ranking is some bulljive. Skip, this is why people really don’t put a whole lot of stock when you come up with these grades,’ the Hall of Fame began.

‘Jared Goff has more passing yards than Aaron Rodgers, more touchdowns than Tom Brady, fewer interceptions than Patrick Mahomes. 

‘A higher pass to touchdown ration than Josh Allen, and a higher QBR than Dak Prescott.’

The NFL Hall of Famer was critical of the PFF rankings but spoke highly of the Lions' QB

Goff was placed below several signal-callers who have struggled mightily this season for some of the league’s basement franchises, including the Broncos and Panthers.

‘People at home; do you believe Russell Wilson, Jameis Winston and PJ Walker has played better than Jared Goff?’ Sharpe asked. 

‘He’s 10th touchdown passes, 11th in yards per attempt, 6th in QBR, seventh in passing yards, ninth in yards per game.

‘His team averages 26.3 points a game, and he’s the 28th rated quarterback by Pro Football Focus. 

‘They got guys in front of him; Marcus Mariota, Russell Wilson, Jameis Winston, PJ Walker, Kenny Pickett, Kyler Murray, Daniel Jones! Matthew Stafford. 

‘Tom Brady has not played better than Jared Goff. Just imagine what the Lions record would be with their offense if they had the Bucs defense.’
