Post Rams Fisher 7-9 Article
Quote:
Jared Goff needs to be good. And he needs to be good fast.

Early reports don't point to Goff hitting the ground running. The season premiere shows us just how green the No. 1 pick really is. Take these comments from Rams defensive coordinator Gregg Williams (yes, that Gregg Williams), who seems to have some early reservations about the rookie.

"He goes in high school and he goes to college and he never called an offensive play in the huddle," Williams says to coaches during one practice. "Hasn't huddled. And offenses in the National Football League, you got have a f------ catalogue to call the plays. It's just 18-, 19-word sentences."

Goff lacks a catalogue or anything resembling a smooth cadence. Seconds after Williams' rant, Goff huddles with the offense and calls out a play with the confidence and proficiency of a 9-year-old reading a passage from Infinite Jest. When Goff attempts to break the huddle, a confused offensive lineman neatly sums up the feeling of teammates and viewers alike: "What the f---?
"


These quotes came from Rams Defensive Coordinator Greg Willams .....

Imagine Jared Goff not panning out ... they gave up three years of first and most of second day picks for the guy...

I don't expect him to pan out. The Rams most likely made a mistake. I don't think Goff or Wentz were legimiately #1 pick QBs. I think it was a draft with only 2nd tier QBs and they were driven up, a la Ponder, by demand and scarcity.

#1 - Screw Williams. First. Foremost. lol

#2 - I watched the episode of hard knocks. I don't think he's got what it takes upstairs as a leader or a play caller.
