Jeff Fisher says Rams QB situation won’t change after embarrassing loss

Jeff Fisher Rams

The Los Angeles Rams could not have looked worse in their season opener Monday night, but Jeff Fisher is not ready to hit the panic button.

After his team’s embarrassing 28-0 loss to the San Francisco 49ers, Fisher said starting quarterback Case Keenum is not in danger of losing his job.

Keenum completed 17 of 35 passes for just 130 yards, no touchdowns and two interceptions. His quarterback rating was a miserable 34.2. But where else does Fisher have to turn?

Sean Mannion (who?) was L.A.’s No. 2 quarterback in San Francisco. Rookie Jared Goff — the No. 1 overall pick in the draft — could be listed as the backup in Week 2, but the reports we heard about the former Cal star all offseason were not great.

The Rams expect Goff to eventually be their franchise quarterback, which is why they took him first overall. The last thing the team wants to do is destroy Goff’s confidence. That said, Fisher will eventually have no choice if Keenum continues to perform the way he did Monday night.
