Jared Goff is the prototypical NFL quarterback. He's a blonde, 6-foot-4 Californian kid who looks like Ryan Gosling with a howitzer for a right arm. The only traditional QB trait Goff does not possess is big hands.

Since measuring in with 9-inch hands at the 2016 NFL Combine, Goff has heard all sorts of criticism about his tiny hands. Even, apparently, from his own teammates. Take a look at this hilarious quote Robert Woods had about his franchise quarterback.

Woods is, of course, referring to Goff's attempted spike after scoring a rushing TD in Week 5. The ball flew out of Goff's tiny hands before he could complete the process, making for one of the least-athletic clips you'll ever see from an athlete on a $100 million deal.

Woods, and the rest of his Los Angeles Rams teammates, apparently let Goff hear about it, calling him 'little hands' Jared Goff while watching the play on the big screen.

His teammates will want to be careful about criticizing him too much, though, because Goff is playing some of the best football of his career. His 9.2 adjusted yards per attempt (AY/A) is tied for the third-best mark among all QBs, he's No. 7 in passer rating (108.8), No. 4 in completion percentage (71.7) and he has the Rams sitting pretty at 4-1.

Not bad for a guy with tiny hands.
