Rapoport: Jared Goff to Sit Until Rams are Eliminated from Playoff Contention

This is disheartening

Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports
Appearing on Monday's edition of Good Morning Football, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported the Rams have no plans to make a quarterback change as long as the postseason remains a possibility.

Well, that's a big 'ol Charlie Bravo for the #1 overall pick. Fans clamoring for Jared Goff to take over for embattled starter Case Keenum are sure to be disappointed by this wait. Taking a look at the current playoff standings, the wait might be as agonizing as the 2016 election cycle.

2016 NFC Playoff Standings - Week 9

Let's not kid ourselves. The Rams aren't going to catch the Seattle Seahawks atop the NFC West. Currently, the Rams are only 2 games out of a wild card spot in a thoroughly average NFC. If they maintain that distance, they will be mathematically in playoff contention until Week 16.

I mean, I can't say that I didn't see this coming (kinda), but it's a blow to the morale of fans nonetheless.

For those that still need it, I give you this.
