Jared Goff feels like he’s gotten better every day

It would be a stretch to call 2016 the year of the rookie quarterback, but it has been a year with a couple of rookie quarterbacks showing they are right at home in the NFL.

Neither Carson Wentz nor Dak Prescott was expected to be a Week One starter, but both wound up in that job and they have both performed well while helping the Eagles and Cowboys to winning records to this point in the season. Both of those quarterbacks were taken after the Rams made Jared Goff the first overall pick, but Goff hasn’t had a chance to join them on the field yet.

Goff said that seeing those rookies do well while he sits behind Case Keenum hasn’t been difficult because he feels he’s been steadily improving despite not being on the field.

“Every situation is different,” Goff said, via “All these guys that are doing well right now I’m very happy for. Most of them I’m good friends with, and they’ve done a really good job. I’m very happy for them. … I’ve felt good every day. I think I’ve progressed ever since I got here, and I don’t think I’ve ever really plateaued or gone backwards. I think I’ve gotten better every time, every week, every day. So I feel good.”

Offensive coordinator Rob Boras agrees with Goff, saying that the quarterback isn’t “asking rookie questions anymore.” Head coach Jeff Fisher said that there’s no timeline for Goff to move into the lineup, although the team will have a bye after Week Seven that could provide a spot to make a change if the Rams feel it’s time to break the seal on their top draft pick.

    Goff should start.

    Fisher put him behind 3rd string or worse line/offense during the “competition” in preseason…

    Its ridiculous.

    Rams need to give the kid a few drives here and there at least…..

    Tell Goff to put a few pounds on too…too skinny right now.

    Or Maybe Fisher is SMART after all……?

    FISHER KNOWS OUR OFFENSIVE LINE SUUUUCKKKSSSS And doesn’t want the kid creamed out there…

    With a skill set like yours the only way to go is up!

    Better to let the guy learn and not toss him to the wolves immediately.

    This smells like “BUST” written all over it…

    He’s probably just not asking any questions right now, in an attempt to fake it.

    Translated : the play book is rocket science but he is slowly getting it. Maybe next year?

    Maturity and classy response from the kid. Hope he does well when he gets his chance.

    Rams fan here….this week is boom or bust for Case Keenum IMO. If they can’t beat Detroit and he looks as bad as he has for most of the season then the pressure is going to mount to start Goff the following week in London against the Giants. Jared had some very good moments and very bad moments in pre-season but Keenum has done that in the regular season so why not give him a shot?

  11. r502 says: Oct 13, 2016 12:33 PM

    Not sure how much you can learn from Keenum other than what not to do most of the time.
    Not a good sign that Goff cannot get on the field after what they are trotting out there now.
    Not a good sign that they don’t put this guy out there at all, the talent on O other than Gurley is not much to support your supposed franchise guy picked number 1 overall.

    Kid needs better coaching staff, look at Bradford.

  13. codythao35 says: Oct 13, 2016 12:40 PM

    How many 1st round pick are the Rans going to redo?

  14. 6250claimer says: Oct 13, 2016 12:44 PM

    Better than what?

  15. bspurloc says: Oct 13, 2016 12:47 PM

    Hardknocks implied he was clueless on NFL level playbooks…

    they shoulda drafted a Kicker. I hear that is how u improve a team

  16. bobthebillsfan says: Oct 13, 2016 1:09 PM

    QB Case Keenum > #1 overall draft pick? Holy Moly!!!

  17. beneagles says: Oct 13, 2016 1:13 PM

    He’s be starting but they can’t find gloves in “petite”

  18. vusnu says: Oct 13, 2016 1:13 PM

    Hard not to get better when you’ve been stinking up the joint.

  19. mdsayre says: Oct 13, 2016 1:38 PM

    They need a better O-line for sure, but I’d start Goff after the bye, and protect him with short passing and more play-action. Kind of surprised Keenum has not been hurt yet, he’s been taking a beating.

  20. b4utoo says: Oct 13, 2016 3:00 PM

    What I can’t figure….how is our playbook terminology so difficult…when the offense is soooo basic and boring….short pass short – pass short -pass -run -run-run- short pass -throw a bomb -short pass- run
    And everyone still just
    drop ball drop ball drop ball drop ball fumble interception drop ball
    How bad does a offense have to be in order to get change?

  21. b4utoo says: Oct 13, 2016 3:03 PM


    It sounds like

    Blue Right Electric Z motion 123 outtamyway Oscar 1 delta bravo X V Zebra Jim Bob Left 2 Z Virginia 2 Slant Whatever blah blah blah…

    And its a run down the middle… lol

    The kid didn’t know that the sun rises in the east. Maybe he’s having problems with the playbook.
