In the postgame press conference, Sean McVay made an uncharacteristically harsh-toned comment in regards to starting quarterback Jared Goff. Everyone who heard it reached the same conclusion: One of the discussions within the organization is the future of Goff. And part of that conversation will most definitely include other options for the Rams.
