Since the Rams don’t play anyone this weekend, there’s no one for starting quarterback Case Keenum to get ready for.
So they’re giving No. 1 overall pick Jared Goff some work with the ones this week, to help accelerate his education, and he said he feels more prepared than ever.
“I feel tremendously more comfortable than I’ve ever felt,” Goff said, via Gary Klein of the Los Angeles Times. “I feel confident that if my number’s called, I’ll be ready to go. Just waiting for that time.”
That time’s not coming just yet, however.
Coach Jeff Fisher said he’s sticking with Keenum, even though they’ve lost three in a row to dip to 3-4, with the last one including four Keenum picks. And while other rookies are playing (and flourishing elsewhere), Goff’s also smooth enough to not start complaining about his timeline now.
“It’s part of the process part of what’s going on,” he said. “I’m not going to sit here and complain or gripe.
“I’m going to support Case and continue to get ready and be ready and continue to be confident in myself and be ready when the time comes.”
Whenever that time may be.
