Are the Los Angeles Rams setting themselves up for failure by NOT having a veteran signal caller on the depth chart in LA?
I say yes.
Los Angeles Rams fans may be scratching their head when looking at their team’s quarterback depth chart. After the unproven, second year, top overall pick Jared Goff, is the also unproven Sean Mannion. After THAT, it’s any of the “Not Ready For Prime Time” assortment of clipboard holders.

Imagine buying a new house near the
, and saying you’ll take a pass on earthquake insurance.
It’s something like that.
I’ve written that the Rams are all in on Goff, and they should be. Sooner rather than later, LA will need to find out whether their would be franchise quarterback can BE a franchise quarterback.
It’s after that where you have to keep your fingers crossed.
The next guy up will be a gamble whether he can be better than you need him to be. Mannion is only more unproven than Goff. Hence, you have a curious dilemma that will either pay off, or go bust.
Hey Sean McVay, the Rams don’t have much more “bust” in the franchise, and Los Angeles has cornered the market on “unproven.”
Beginning with McVay, who is an unproven commodity with the Rams, is an even more compelling question of why the organization is so OK with rolling the dice on uncertainty?
If, and I say IF Goff goes belly up at any point during the season, how will fans feel when Mannion becomes their next best chance to not regurgitate another sub .500 season?
I’m just sayin’, maybe the Rams should take a look at some depth with a quarterback who’s won an NFL regular season game.
And one more thing: is the psyche of Goff so delicate that someone challenging him is a bad thing? And if that’s the case, then the Rams already have an issue beyond a winless record with their top guy.
It becomes an impossible thing to ignore that Los Angeles is banking everything on Goff paying off, and paying off big for the Rams. They built an entire draft around him, hired and offensive-centric head coach, and employ no other logical option at the quarterback position.
Smart or hopeful?
Do the Rams have another choice?
After too many seasons of losing, smart or hopeful is a risky game plan.
Unfortunately, Rams fans find themselves with few options.
