Case is going to come in and be our starting quarterback
Los Angeles Rams general manager Les Snead made an appearance on the NFL Network show as they are currently live from Boca Raton for the Annual League Meeting. With everybody wondering who will be the Rams quarterback come Week 1, Snead took it into his own hands to answer that question.
Keenum was the Rams quarterback towards the end of the season when he took over the job from Nick Foles who was benched.
The question for Snead was “Case Keenum, Nick Foles which way do you go, what’s the answer right now at quarterback? His answer probably is true, or could be another lie within the Rams organization. Cough Sam Bradford.
"“Case is going to come in and be our starting quarterback. He earned it,” Snead said at the Annual League Meeting in Boca Raton. “We were a slumping football team at the end of last year. He comes in and wins three out of four. And basically drove us down to kick a game-winning field goal to win four straight and we missed it.”"
Now to be honest, Snead and Fisher both said Sam Bradford was going to be the Rams QB in the off-season yet traded him away. Maybe Case Keenum is really going to be the Rams QB week 1. I recently wrote an article on how maybe the Rams should build around Keenum in the NFL Draft, that could be there plan. Keenum has come out to the media and said “I want to be the leader this team needs”. He does have the heart and passion
It’s going to be very interesting to see if Snead and Fisher can back their own words up and build around Keenum. If the Los Angeles Rams have their QB, who should they select with the 15th pick in the NFL Draft? Last year, Keenum started five games, going 3-2 with a 60.8 completion percentage, four touchdowns, one interception and one huge win against the Seahawks in Seattle.
