Twitter Explodes After Jared Goff is Named Rams Starter
With big news comes big reactions, and that’s exactly what we saw on Twitter after it was announced that Jared Goff would start Sunday for the Los Angeles Rams.
A report by ESPN’s Chris Mortensen saying the Los Angeles Rams were making the switch to Jared Goff in Week 11 set the NFL world on fire.
Here’s the original tweet from Mort:

The news was surprising considering Rams head coach Jeff Fisher announced just yesterday that Case Keenum was still the team’s starter.
ESPN Stats & Info dropped some knowledge on just how bad the Rams’ quarterbacks have been the past two seasons:
Why are the Rams starting Jared Goff? Perhaps because their QBs have struggled mightily the past two seasons: pic.twitter.com/ivy9KFUk9L

NFL Network’s Adam Rank doesn’t think very highly of the move:
Jared Goff to start.
You’ve just replaced the Creed CD with Nickelback. Congratulations.

Jeff Fisher’s motives for going to Goff now were questioned:
Jeff Fisher was just waiting to switch to Goff when you least expected it and stopped caring or thinking it made a difference. #Rams

The Rams are hoping they get a lot of this out of Goff:
Even bigger expectations.

One fan doesn’t plan on selling his season tickets anymore. Smart guy:
@LizHabib Awesome! Just took down my season tickets from stub hub. Can’t wait to go Sunday

Can Goff keep Kenny Britt’s great season going, while also helping Tavon Austin to get involved?
OTOH, Keenum developed strong chemistry with Kenny Britt and resurrected Brian Quick’s career. Can Goff keep that going?
