FS1's Nick Wright went in on Rams' quarterback Jared Goff Monday after a poor performance in Week 10 against the Pittsburgh Steelers and linked the former No. 1 pick to another No. 1 pick, John Wall.
"What John Wall is to the Washington Wizards is what Jared Goff is about to be to the Los Angeles Rams — an anchor around their neck that brings them to mediocrity." — @getnickwright pic.twitter.com/M7k3Kf309P— First Things First (@FTFonFS1) November 11, 2019
Wall promptly responded "LOL funny guy" to Wright's criticism and the latter clarified his claims.
Wasn’t trying to be funny & honestly wasn’t trying to take a shot, even if it looks that way.— nick wright (@getnickwright) November 11, 2019
You’re hurt, so it’s not your fault, just a reality of your contract & the impact on the team since you’re not able to play.
Goff is playing, he’s just been terrible.
With Wall expected to be sidelined for the entirety of the 2019 NBA season, his contract has been under constant scrutinization. Goff, on the other hand, is fully healthy and has been struggling mightily this season.
Goff has thrown for 2610 yards this season with 12 touchdowns and an alarming 9 interceptions.
He recently agreed to a four-year, $134 million contract and has not lived up to it thus far.
The Wizards are hopeful that Wall can get back to full health and rejoin this group when he is ready.
With a depleted roster, the Wizards are currently sitting at a 2-6 record, but anyone who follows this team knows the fight they've put in game-in and game-out and that their record doesn't tell the full story.
The Wizards travel to Boston for a Wednesday night showdown with the Celtics who are currently boasting the best record in the NBA at 8-1.
This will be a matchup that you do not want to miss.
