Goff in concussion protocol after hit from Sherman

Rams quarterback Jared Goff is in the league’s concussion protocol, Rams interim coach John Fassel said after Thursday night’s loss to the Seahawks.

Goff was scrambling in the fourth quarter but didn’t slide or run out of bounds, and he took a big hit from Richard Sherman. Though Goff resisted, he was removed from the game and eventually taken to the locker room.

After the game, Sherman told reporters that Goff had “a little disrespect in his running style. He was acting like he was getting a freebie to the end zone.” Sherman made sure that didn’t happen.

I admire his courage,” Fassel said of Goff. “But he has to get out of bounds.”

The 4-10 Rams are clearly playing for the future, so it would be disappointing if Goff can’t play in either of the Rams’ final two games.

  1. Goff really might be the worst #1 draft pick I have seen for a QB. At least Jarmarcus had unmistakable physical gifts

  2. He moved up to rookie qb’s! He used to just take cheap shots at defenseless kickers while the play was dead, but at least this one was actually during a play!

  3. Of course something was wrong with it according to Sherman. Can’t he just shut up for one week?

  4. yea a rookie qb trying make a play for his team is showing disrespect, does this guy thrive on being a douche? just how does a guy show disrespect by the way he runs? he does know he is a rookie right? he hasn’t learned that he has to slide or go out of bands much less think about disrespecting anybody.

  5. Goff looks very very ‘not ready’ for the starting role.

    Almost unbelievable missed opportunities, wide wide wide open receivers missed, unsure where to go with the ball.

    That was just some bad football.

  6. .
    clean hit and knocked out

    why is there no story or mention of the kicker getting knocked out afterwards?????

  7. I think if Sherm had put a little more English on Goff, the ball would have stayed in-bounds when he fumbled it.

  8. That is a lot of talk from a guy who is getting beat deep over and over this season. I guess hitting defenceless players and shootin his mouth off is his way of hiding his getting burned repeatedly.

  9. Sherman is a loser. hows that player safety thing going NFL? a quarterback gets cracked right in the head? was there even a flag?

  10. Not one Rams lineman came over to do a thing either. Typical Seahawks dirty hit and nothing. If this was hockey, Sherman would have joined Goff in the concussion protocol. Rams line played soft all night getting their lunch money stolen and then let their QB get launched on a dirty hit and did nothing. Shame.

    Clean hit, dumb move by the rookie since there was a hold already by his line. He’ll learn or he’ll be injured a lot like Luck.
    ——-

    It actually wasn’t. He tried not to, but he hit him helmet to helmet. I agree about Goff. That was a dumb hit to take.

  12. Holy cow. Let’s just put Steve Smith and Richard Sherman in a steel cage to settle the debate over who got disrespected more.

    Why are such talented players spending so much energy manufacturing these BS issues?

  13. In the past I haven’t always understood all the Sherman bashing. Being a fan of an opposing team doesn’t keep me from appreciating other players. He’s made a lot of telling points and made some of them quite well but it’s hard to ignore the dbaggery here. Goff showed “disrespect in his running style” seriously??? Sherman tools off on the league for among other things a disregard of player safety then blows up the rookie just because he can and justifies it with that comment?

  14. Goff has to learn how to avoid those hits. I actually think he’s going to be a good player though despite his rookie struggles. He has a fluid throwing motion and a quick release. He also has pocket skills to build on. With time and a better supporting cast I think he can turn into a good QB

  15. Sherman is genuinely the most insecure man on the planet. “Running in a disrespectful manner”? Stanford has joined the ranks of California community colleges.

  16. Thanks Sherman for putting down that wounded animal….that was an ugly display of quarterbacking….kid should not be playing yet, let him sit and learn, he’s not ready for the field yet, playing him now you take the chance of ruining him for life….not worth it, forget about where he was drafted and think long term…..

  17. What a bizarre game…if the Rams didn’t have puppet for a QB, this could have gone the other way.
    So hard to tell if Goff was way in over his head, or he was just that bad…shame, as I thought the Rams defense played well at beginning, but with no support from Offense the table tilted.

  18. Wait…..Sherman tackled someone? Interesting, usually he does his best to avoid such contact…

    Thanks for showing your COMPLETE ignorance. Sherman is the hardest hitting elite cornerback in football. He ALWAYS steps up in run support. That’s the LOB.

    Too bad, you tried to talk crap and ended up looking like you know nothing. Stick with how you don’t like his mouth, it works for everyone else. Talking about his play will get you laughed at.

    Next!

  19. It actually wasn’t. He tried not to, but he hit him helmet to helmet. I agree about Goff. That was a dumb hit to take.

    Go watch it again, it was completely clean. Sherman kept his head out of it and hit him with his shoulderpads.

    People hate Sherman, but somehow that hate makes you see things that aren’t there.

  20. Look at all the whiny soccer fans posting on an NFL board about physical violent hitting.

    You should’ve seen Ronnie Lott play! You should’ve seen John Lynch play!

    Bunch of pansies now…

    If Goff doesn’t want to get smacked like that DO NOT SLOW DOWN…he slowed down and BLAMMO…that’s football people. I know you didn’t play it but pull your panties out and get real. Football is violent.

    Sherman tackles like Deion Sanders…..he backpedals and avoids contact from RBs at all costs….

    And Sherman is not “elite”…..he is average without Earl Thomas in the game….and he only covers one side of the field.

  22. Taken literally it was pretty dumb thing to say, but I think I understand what Sherman meant by it (I live in LA and root for the Rams BTW).

    Goff running down the sideline(without any sort of defensiveness to his posture) like he’s just going to stride into the end zone with Seahawks defenders ahead of him, was just a stupid rookie QB move. Even with all the rules, the NFL is a very tough game played by really tough guys.

    It’s more of a “Come on, man, what game do you think you are playing here?” than Sherman thinking Jared Goff was out-and-out specifically disrespecting Richard Sherman. Mixed in with a little trash talk.

    god, sherman is such a tool. hes getting mad at people for running in a disrespectful manner now?!?

  23. From the NFL rule book.. >>. “Blindside” Block. It is an illegal “blindside” block if the initial force of the contact by a blocker’s helmet (including facemask), forearm, or shoulder is to the head or neck area of an opponent when the blocker is moving toward his own endline and approaches his opponent from behind or from the side<<

    If you look at the tape, Sherman starts his move towards Goff at the 5 yard line. The point of impact is a tad before the 2 yard line, therefore he was moving towards his own endline when he delivered the hit from the side. That hit was illegal and Sherman deserved a penalty. Since there was a hold on the Rams it would have offset and the play replayed.. But to be clear the hit by Sherman was illegal..
