While the Los Angeles Rams are 3-1, they have not played as well as they could be and we all should know what the problem truly is.
Let’s not beat around the bush with the Los Angeles Rams.
Jared Goff isn’t looking like a Hall of Fame quarterback at the moment. Before he was drafted in 2016, I remember there were a lot of talks that he might not be as good in the NFL as he was at Cal. But the Rams took a chance on the kid.
Goff has thrown for 1,254 yards on 173 attempts with six touchdowns but has thrown six interceptions to go with it in four games.

By having Todd Gurley playing at full speed, it might take the load off of the QB and his receivers, but I don’t think it can change the situation much. He has rushed the ball 49 times for 219 yards and three touchdowns. He rushed the ball five times last game.
The Rams’ wideouts are having a great season. Cooper Kupp is showing his worth — ranked No. 2 in the NFL with 388 yards on 32 receptions and three touchdowns. Robert Woods has 307 yards on 26 catches, and Brandin Cooks has 296 yards on 19 catches with one touchdown.
I believe the problem with the offense is deeper.
I believe I can speak for all Rams fans when I say that their performance in the Super Bowl was really hard to watch. It looks like he’s been making the same mistakes.
His performance in the Super Bowl was disappointing: 19 for 38, 229 passing yards, one interception.
Last week, his game was a head-scratcher. He threw three picks to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers — but found a way to throw two touchdowns and over 500 passing yards on 68 attempts. Those picks could have been avoided if he made better decisions with the ball and the protection was more efficient.
I’m not going to roll over the Bucs like they suck, because they gave the Rams their first loss of the season, but still.
Head coach Sean McVay is the type of football genius that we don’t really understand quite yet. He does amazing with his play calling, and his recollection of events is unbelievable. He was critical of the Rams’ offense in that game.
"“It’s about our offense doing a better job of not beating ourselves. Something that we’ll look at and make sure that we try to get corrected,” McVay said to the LA Times."
It definitely begs the question: Would Goff have a job right now if there was a better option to replace him than…Blake Bortles? Does McVay need a QB that stays in the pocket or will his offense work with a mobile QB?
I’m only going to say this once. If Goff keeps this up, he’s done as a QB for the Los Angeles Rams. They can’t win like that. They might wait it out for a year, but if it continues next year, the Rams might be looking for a new QB in the draft or in free agency.
