LOS ANGELES, CA – DECEMBER 31: Jamon Brown /

Unless things change in a weeks’ time, McVay and the Rams braintrust should consider closing the book on Mannion and finding a veteran replacement.

There simply is too much of a noticeable drop off from Goff to his backup. And while such a drop off is typically understandable, Mannion looks to be a bridge way to far.

Los Angeles has done a lot of work to get to this point. They will likely be a legitimate threat to win the NFC, and make a title run. Granted, a lot would have to transpire for such good fortune, but Mannion is a gamble not worth taking.

McVay looked perplexed, almost anxious for the game with the Ravens to end. It was a game that most fans wanted to see end. It also showed the gap between what the Rams have at the top of their depth chart, and what happens when you start playing those on the second and third lines.

Frankly, it’s hard to make a reasonable argument for Mannion. He’s entering his fourth season, and you’d never have guessed that watching him last night.

He was that bad.

The question now is how long, or even why to consider limping along with hm hoping things turn around.

The Rams would be ill advised to make such a mistake.
