#24: The Sun Rises in the West
November 16, 2016•38 min
The Los Angeles media and Rams fans everywhere have been clamoring for Jared Goff to play for weeks and weeks. On Tuesday, Chris Mortensen reported that the team had finally decided to insert Goff into the lineup. The 22-year old rookie replaces veteran Case Keenum who had a competent, albeit unglamorous, game in the Rams 9-6 victory over the New York Jets at Met Life Stadium in East Rutherford, NJ last Sunday. Joshua Neuman and Eriq Gardner discuss whether the QB change was Head Coach Jeff Fisher’s decision or one foisted upon him from above and how having Goff in the lineup might impact the team’s fortunes. And since we’re already on the subject of personnel changes, we make a case for fewer snaps for Tavon Austin and more for Corey Harkey, before previewing next Sunday’s game at the Coliseum against the Miami Dolphins.
