Aaron Donald?

Can't argue when it comes to AD. He's IS a great example that regression isn't the only result of getting a big payday.
There are probably others out there too, , , I just can't think of many / any... 8-)

I'm just answering a question with an answer I know off the top of my head. Was paid on potential and good play, but blew up after getting paid.

The doubters have had over a year of tuning in and waiting. Goff is the one continuing to give doubters reason to doubt.

Goff led the team to the Superbowl last year.
The "doubters" have some pretty unrealistic expectations if that doesn't mean anything

I don't know that that is an accurate way to describe how everyone feels. Goff was certainly the QB on a SB team but that doesn't give him a free pass regarding his personal performance in perpetuity.

For over a year's worth of games now, Goff's production hasn't been particularly efficient or productive. He has gone a long while without snapping out of his funk and regaining his previous form and provided reasonable cause for skepticism/doubt.

And it's fine if someone wants to believe without reservation that he will regain what he had but it isn't a given in any way or cause to chastise those who don't share the same faith.
