Los Angeles Rams rookie quarterback Jared Goff — the No. 1 overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft — will ride the bench some more, according to Rams head coach Jeff Fisher. One has to think if he’s even ready when other teams have already started rookie signal-callers.
Goff was inactive for the first game, then has been a back-up to Case Keenum. Fisher has made it clear that Keenum will start until the Rams are eliminated from the playoff picture.
“My understanding of the Rams quarterback situation,” NFL Network‘s Ian Rapoport said, “is that they’re not going to make a switch — barring some sort of epic collapse by Case Keenum — until they fall out of playoff contention.”
NFL Network’s Steve Wyche stated the Rams “simply don’t believe Goff is ready to play.” With the Rams 3-5, they could be eliminated soon.
Los Angeles is a bad team as they had no running game — even with second-year back Todd Gurley — and essentially no passing game. They have also looked poorly coached by Fisher.
He continues to have horrible seasons and the Rams continue to keep him around. They were talking about giving Les Snead, general manager, and Fisher contract extensions before changing their minds earlier this season.
