Jared Goff sorry to see Greg Robinson go

The only player on the Rams who was a higher draft pick than Greg Robinson was sorry to lose Robinson as a teammate.

Rams quarterback Jared Goff, the first overall pick in last year’s draft, said he always enjoyed playing with Robinson, the second overall pick in the 2012 draft who was traded to the Lions this week.

“When I woke up and saw that at first it was a little shocking,” Goff said. “But part of the business, man. It sucks. But Greg was a good teammate, a good friend and wish him the best.”

Protecting their investment in Goff is perhaps the Rams’ highest priority in building their roster, and so if they thought Robinson was ever going to become the kind of offensive lineman they thought he’d be when he was chosen second overall, they would have kept him.

  1. While I agree that changing coaches often isn’t a successful tactic, keeping Fisher for a dozen years isn’t either. How that man stayed employed as a HC for 15 years is a feat in itself.

  2. Well the Lions saw something in Greg Robinson. Hopefully it will work out for all parties concerned.

  3. I remember beating my head against a wall when Fisher was considered for the Dolphins job. People were upset and felt shunned when he took the Rams job. I’ve never understood why anyone has ever considered him to be a good coach. Thankfully we still had the incompetent Jeff Ireland in control and Fisher was actually smart enough to realize that he would be better off coaching his own mistakes as opposed to coaching the mistakes of one of the worst GM’s in league history.

  4. The Jaguars’ Gene Smith would like to apply for the worst GM title. Don’t forget, he drafted a punter in the third round over Russell Wilson.

  5. Knock Fisher all you want and he deserves it, but he did fix some issues on the Rams. They were a 1-15 team going nowhere with no talent. They have a solid defense and special teams because of him. His undoing was on offense, should have hired Norv Tuner (his buddy) instead of Rob Boras last year, that was the nail in the coffin move!

  7. Re the RG III trade:

    Rams got Janoris Jenkins, who played at an all pro level his ENTIRE time with the Rams.

    Rams got Michael Brockers, a solid run stopping DT.

    Rams Alec Ogeltree, an unheralded but extremely talented linebacker.

    Rams got the compensatory picks they received when Janoris left.

    Heck, I’d make that trade again if you gave me just ONE of those guys.

  8. The NFL is sterilizing the whole concept of team, fans and player unity. First, allowing owners and their organizations to “re-locate” crushes the winning concepts of loyalty and established fan bases. Secondly, the “business end ” of having teams constantly replacing dedicated players defeats camaraderie, team spirit and unity. In other words, son, don’t get too taken-up by a player you really like ’cause he could be gone tomorrow. It’s “sterilized.” Blank-faced – it’s a business.”
    The NFL can change one growing weakness in their business plan. That is RENOVATION NOT RELOCATION. The recent spate of moves, i.e. the Rams from LA to St.Louis to LA, the Chargers trashing 56 years of community roots and fan loyalty, moving to Carson which is unravelling. And the same with the Raiders, shortly becoming the Las Vegas Raiders. Next, you’ll see Buffalo becoming the San Antonio Bills. This all amounts to sacrificing the ideas of UNITY and SPIRIT for money. It’s here today, gone tomorrow. After all, “it’s all about money, it’s a business.” Sad.

  9. The only reason the Rams won’t sweep the Seahawks this coming season is Goff. But……..you never know, sometimes it’s the worst QBs that do the best at not straying from the dink and dunk script it takes to consistently move the ball against their D.

  10. In a couple years Rams fans will be glad to see another Bust, Goff go…

    Now Ram fans know how it felt to be a fan of the Raiders under “Coach Davis”. “Jamarcus wasn’t a Great playaaa and neither is Goff…

  11. Cracks me up to see folks discounting a QB based on, what, 7 games?

    If you think you already know what kind of NFL quarterback Goff is going to eventually be, then I already know what kind of NFL fan you are. The CLUELESS variety.
