No. 1 overall pick Goff to start for Rams

It is fair to assume he will face a learning curve in his first National Football League start and for the rest of the season, but there is some additional pressure on his shoulders based on how well other rookie quarterbacks have performed in 2016.

Scouts have commended Goff's pocket presence and arm strength on long pass plays downfield, and coaches have congratulated the California product on his progress with the team since tossing a pair of touchdowns and interceptions while losing three fumbles during the exhibition season.

"There's always stuff I could have done better", said Keenum, who is earning $3.6 million on a one-year contract, "but I thought I put my team in a chance to win". Following a 28-0 shutout loss to the San Francisco 49ers (the 49ers only win to date) in the season opener, the Rams have limped to a 4-5 record. A lot of good quarterbacks took their lumps last weekend, but we got confidence in him, as the offense does.

"It don't want to say it's a new era, it's a new start, but in a lot of ways it is", Fisher declared Tuesday.

It's obvious that it's an emotional catharsis when you're told as an athlete and competitor that the team is moving on to a younger more inexperienced player.

For Goff, it was a message he's been waiting to get nearly since the moment he was drafted first overall last April.

Veteran Case Keenum has started every game, passing for 2,169 yards with 11 interceptions and nine TDs.

The Vikings were expected to sign free agent Kai Forbath to take Walsh's place.

"We don't have to reduce anything and we talked as a staff last night about that", Fisher said.

Hopefully for Rams fans, this isn't Fisher caving into the demands just because some people have voiced concern over the Rams already regretting selecting Goff.

Whether Goff is really ready, or Fisher's hand has been forced following a string of disappointing displays from Keenum remains to be seen. Head Coach Jeff Fisher was adamant about sticking with Keenum.

After weeks of increasing scrutiny on the offense's struggles, Fisher finally chose to see what they've got in Goff.

"I'm still scared that he's going to go out there and get beaten up because he hasn't been nurtured or trained at the level...he's going to have to process".

"I know Rob's history", Brockers said.

There is an air of curiosity surrounding the rookie quarterback, and not just among the fans who chanted "We want Goff!" during the November 6 game against Carolina in the Coliseum. The Rams also traded up to make a splash in their return to Los Angeles after a 21-year sojourn in St. Louis, where they hadn't made the playoffs since 2004 or had a winning record since 2003. It takes time, and we gave it time, and it was the right decision.

Here's a complete preview and prediction for the Miami Dolphins and Los Angeles Rams on Sunday.

This might not bode too well for Goff.
