Sean Mannion became the answer to an obscure trivia question for Rams on Saturday.
No. 1 Draft pick Jared Goff struggled in two possessions, completing 4 for 9, 38 yards and 1 INT.
It’s no lock that the 30-year old, whose wife is a reality television star will actually make the team. Rams coach Jeff Fisher said Goff’s shoulder is “no concern” and felt the rookie quarterback “was fine” in a limited workout.
“That room has gotten better”. So I said, ‘Sorry, Mom. He was sure to mention third-string quarterback Sean Mannion, who threw for 147 yards and three touchdowns in the second half.
With the starting quarterback job still up for grabs and veteran Case Keenum now holding pole position, Goff still has some work to do if he expects to take starting snaps in week one.
Fisher said “we’re not ready to play run defense yet” and that would be a focus this week.
“It’s amusing, as you get closer to having an opportunity in the National Football League, you stop caring as much because as you get closer, it doesn’t matter, I’ll go anywhere”. He threw an interception and suffered the injury when hit by Dallas linebacker Derek Akunne in his first series.
The coaches can not control if their players get injured during the game, whether it is the preseason or regular season.
Goff asked Cooper if he knew where the sun rose and the wide receiver said, “In the air?”
“He understands keeping drives alive”, Fisher said.
“I was happy with the second drive we had and getting it down there. It’s just progression and that’s what we’re looking for”, Fisher tells of Goff.
“I got one of these yesterday – ‘Jeffrey!'” Fisher said Thursday per ESPN.
Practice started at 3:30pm PT, but a few Rams’ players made a decision to hit the field early. Fisher said he didn’t believe Spruce would need surgery. “I don’t worry about anything else”. An undrafted free agent from Tennessee, Randolph tore his ACL against the Cowboys.
More than 80,000 tickets were sold to the game, which saw the Rams defeat the Dallas Cowboys 28-24.
