Per a source with knowledge of the situation, Goff believes he’s ready now. The more accurate statement, then, may be not whether Goff is ready to play but whether Fisher is ready to play Goff. For whatever reason, Fisher is intent on protecting Goff, which could be a desire by Fisher to, in a roundabout way, protect himself.
The theory that Fisher is protecting himself has been written about here before. It’s possible Goff is so behind that he’ll make Fisher look even worse than he already does.
Fisher’s subpar roster has little hope other than the guy sitting behind Keenum. A disastrous debut for Goff this season could put the nail in Fisher’s coaching coffin sooner rather than later.
The longer Fisher sticks with Keenum and his mediocre quarterback play, the more it becomes evident that Goff is indeed unprepared to play the position at the moment.
