One of the biggest storylines so far this offseason for the Rams has been this expected quarterback battle between Jared Goff and John Wolford heading into the 2021 season.
It’s not a surprising headline to see since the NFL and the media love themselves some reality television-esque drama but I’m hard-pressed to believe it’s as simple as Goff has been underwhelming so the Rams want to give a “worthy” Wolford the chance to compete.
I don’t think Wolford impressed nearly to the point where any logical person would consider giving him an opportunity to replace Goff as the starter. This is going to come down to whether or not Goff’s contract is worth keeping any longer in spite of his play this past season. Wolford’s play really has nothing to do with it. It’s just an easy storyline for the team to parrot instead of being forced to make more direct statement’s regarding Goff’s future with the team.
At any rate, I just wanted to get all of your thoughts on the matter. Is this storyline worth the fan base’s attention? Do fans truly believe there will be a quarterback competition? I personally don’t think so.
