The Los Angeles Rams did not trade up tot he first pick in the draft to take an inactive third quarterback.
They did it to get a backup, at least this week.
Goff was inactive for the opener against the 49ers, and now he’ll be a play away from making his NFL debut.
While it seems apparent Goff wasn’t ready to start — few rookies are. But it’s mostly a bad look for a franchise that gave up so much to get Goff that he couldn’t be more prepared than Mannion, a second-year third-rounder with seven career attempts.
