After months and months of questioning why Jared Goff is not the starter for the Los Angeles Rams, he will finally get his chance this Sunday.
I am not sure if Goff is actually ready to lead the team, but I do believe that they need to give him a shot. Case Keenum hasn’t been doing anything to help his team win and Goff needs to have some time to grow by playing in actual games if they want him to be the starter next year.
He is going to be in for some rough times, though. First time starting quarterbacks have done a pretty good job this year and he gets his chance way afterwards so higher expectations will be expected from him. Being the number one draft pick they will also cause people to judge him even harder and I don’t know if he can handle this pressure.
Hopefully he will be able to show what he can do, but I worry about the Rams not thinking he was ready until now. He might be a slow learner. There had to be a reason they kept Keenum as the starter. Goff may end up being another number one draft pick bust if the Rams are not careful. If he does become a bust, the Rams will look like idiots for not choosing Carson Wentz or Dak Prescott. Time for Goff to show what he can do and hopefully prove there is a reason he was the number 1 overall draft pick in the 2016 NFL draft.
