Jared Goff feels he’s picking things up quickly

Once the Rams get to training camp, we’ll have a weekly TV show to keep us apprised of how rookie quarterback Jared Goff is adapting to life in the NFL.

Until then, it will be up to Goff and others in the organization to fill us in on how things are progressing for the first overall pick of the 2016 draft. With OTAs starting this week, they have some more expansive on-field work to use as part of their analysis and Wednesday brought good reviews.

Running back Todd Gurley was impressed by Goff’s arm and Case Keenum said the rookie aiming to take his job has impressed with his ability to get the team in and out of the huddle, which Keenum said he struggled to do at this early juncture of his career. Goff feels things are off to a good start as well.

“I wouldn’t know any other way, I guess,” Goff said, via the team’s website. “I’m picking it up at a pretty good pace, I think, and feel really good as far as how fast I pick it up. And I’m able to apply most of it out here. Again, there’s mistakes, but that happens. I’m young and learning. So when there is a mistake, just learn from it, and try not to let it happen again.”

Goff isn’t working with the first team yet, but some work with the starters is expected before OTAs are out and he should get plenty of those reps come training camp. If the self-assessment and outside reviews are on target, it won’t be long before he’s getting all of them.

  1. Going off the linked picture it appears the Rams are sticking with the St Louis blue and gold colors. That’s a huge disappointment.

    I was hoping the Rams would switch back to their LA colors. Blue/yellow or, my personal favorite, the Fearsome Foursome blue/white. Maybe they will when they move into their new stadium. Or not.

  2. The weather, the women, the natural beauty and now the Rama have returned with a 21 year old franchise qb, the best Running back in football, and Gregg Williams’ body count D. Has there ever been a better time to be an Angeleno?

  3. Don’t worry Jared, you really don’t need to do much. The NFL will ensure you win a SB within the next 5 years.

    We’ll see how well you’re “picking” things up when you face the Cardinals and Seahawks Ds 4 times this year.

    You mean the teams the Rams went 3-1 against last year with Nick Foles (!) and Keenum?

    You have to file a 2 year petition to the league to change uniforms, which the Rams said they will file this year or next so that they will have the uniforms for when the move to the stadium in 2019
