Detroit Lions head coach Dan Campbell doesn’t sound too pleased with quarterback Jared Goff.

The Bengals stomped all over the Lions 34-11 this past Sunday, and Goff threw for 202 yards and an interception in the game. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

Now, the man coaching the squad has publicly called him out.

“I feel like he needs to step up more than he has, and I think he needs to help us, you know,” Campbell told the media after the humiliating loss.

He also added that it’s too early to judge Goff’s play “one way or another” right now. You can listen to his full comments below.

It’s incredibly rare for an NFL head coach to openly criticize players, especially the team’s starting quarterback.

That just doesn’t happen. It’s a sign that Campbell appears to have had enough of Goff’s play as the Lions sit at an abysmal 0-6.

I never wanted Goff, I don’t think Goff is any good and I think the Lions should find a way to cut ties at the first possible chance.

Go find a quarterback in the draft because Goff is obviously not the answer. Anyone with eyes can see that.

Trust me when I say as a fan, I 100% agree with Campbell’s assessment that Goff isn’t getting the job done.
