QB Jared Goff – Postgame Press Conference – Dec. 27, 2020

(On what happened with his thumb…)
“I hit it on a helmet sometime in the third quarter and popped it back into place and finished the game.”

(On how the thumb feels now and he thinks it will be like going forward…)
“It’s okay right now. It’s not terrible. We’ll see tomorrow. We’ll evaluate it tomorrow, we’ll give it 24 hours to see what happens. We’ll see.”

(On what the issues on offense have been recently…)
“We obviously need to finish drives. I made one of what I think is one of the worst plays in my career early on in the first half when I threw that interception to [Quandre] Diggs. We need to score more on the one yard line. We can’t get stuffed like that, that’s the difference in the game right there. We score on the one, we have a completely different type of game outcome. Bottom line, it comes down to us on offense and it comes back to me.”

(On if they feel confident going into the game next week against Arizona…)
“Of course. You always feel confident, you have to be. I’ve been playing this game for a long time. I’ve had setbacks, I’ve had great moments, I’ve had bad moments. For me personally and for our offense, we’ve had that as well this year. We’ve had great moments, we’ve had a lot of setbacks as well and how do we get consistent, how do we get on the right page and how do we move forward.”

(On how they fix the turnovers as an offense…)
“For me personally, I need to stop trying to make a play if it’s not there. I think that’s the result of the one today was, just dumb. Just really dumb. I’m a lot smarter than that, I’ve made a lot of better plays than that and I just need to not make something out of nothing sometimes and just take what they give you.”

(On where he thinks those bad decisions come from…)
“I think it’s just a natural response to try and make something happen. I’m the quarterback of this team and I’m trying to score some points. Unfortunately, it has led to some dumb decisions, specifically today. Specifically just that one, honestly. It just can’t happen, can’t do it.”

(On if the thumb bothered him while throwing afterwards…)
“No.”

(On if he can rate his level of certainty to play next week…)
“I cannot. I’m uncertain. We will see.”

(On if the recent turnovers have made him more cautious in his approach…)
“No I don’t think so. I think like I was just kind of talking about, there’s a balance of trying to make plays and being smart. My confidence will never be shaken by anything. I don’t think that’s something that I’ll ever worry about. Just being smart and walking that line of smart and still aggressive. I think sometimes, specifically on that play today, that was a dumb play. It was just stupid and something that I can’t do. No, I don’t think my confidence will ever be shaken.“

(On if he was looking for Robert Woods on the interception…)
“I was. I was trying to get cute with something and it just did not go my way and they made a great play. Ultimately, it was a part of them winning the game.”

(On what he would say to fans as they head into the final game of the season…)
“We have to figure it out. We lost two in a row in a time in our season when we needed to win both games and didn’t get it done. Look internally, we need to figure it out. I’m sorry that this is happening obviously, but we will figure it out. We have in the past and we’ll keep believing and we will move forward.”
