The Los Angeles Rams haven’t had a lot of luck when it comes to the quarterback position. Outside of the Marc Bulger and Kurt Warner, you would have to go all the way back to 1992 when the Rams had a franchise quarterback in Jim Everett.
Everett finished his career as the all time leading passer of the Rams as well as second in touchdowns behind legend Roman Gabriel. The former Los Angeles Rams quarterback earned playoff berths with the team in 1986, 1988, and 1989, but never reached the Super Bowl despite playing in the conference championship game in 1989 losing to the San Francisco 49ers.
Jim Everett sat down with KTLA channel five to be apart of their “Ram-Jam” series. You can watch the video here:
In the interview, Everett discussed the future of the Rams, how he’s open to being involved with the franchise, as well as what he wants from the next Rams quarterback. Here’s what he had to say about what he wants from the next Rams quarterback.
“They have a great defense, and that’s what Jeff Fisher has produced. Now, offensive-wise, they still have a lot to prove. I’d like to see a quarterback come in here that wipes all my records out. I want that kid to get in here soon. Whoever that’s going to be.”
I think we can all agree with Jim that we’d all like to see a quarterback come in and break his records. Everett is a legend, but in order for the Rams to be successful, they are going to need to find a franchise quarterback.
As of right now, Case Keenum, Nick Foles, and Sean Mannion are the Rams’ only options and it’s not likely that any of those guys are the long-term answer. Who knows, maybe Fisher and Snead can talk Jim Everett to come out of retirement and be the quarterback for the Los Angeles Rams next season.
