Despite Dak Prescott and Carson Wentz killing it from the jump, the Rams waited until Week 11 to break out Jared Goff. Better late than never, I guess. Maybe. Probably not.
Question, is with others seeing playing time immediately, why has it taken Goff so long to get on the field? Clearly, coming out of the system he played in at Cal, they didn’t think he was ready as soon as Prescott, or Wentz…. or hell, even Cody Kessler. And who’s to know if he’s even ready right now.
And while he’s getting his first start at home, they’re throwing him in against a red hot Dolphins team, that has won four in a row and made some pretty good quarterbacks look pretty bad. Then again, they had to. And probably should have sooner.
They have to get this guy some live reps. And find out whether or not he can play. You can’t sit this guy all year long. He needs game action. Now.
If they were a legitimate contender, I could see staying with Case Keenum and taking your shot. But they’re not. And Keenum, with the worst qbr in the league wasn’t doing anything to help them, so put Goff in there, get him in the live action he needs and let’s see what he has.
They’re hoping he can jumpstart their non-existent offense. Oh, and that he can actually get someone to look at them, because with the Clippers are out as quickly as they are, and the Lakers being way ahead of schedule, and USC balling out, no one is this town is paying any attention to the Rams. And they know it; another reason why they have to go with this guy right now. And should have sooner.
