Rams Sticking With Case Keenum At QB

The Rams won’t make a quarterback change despite Case Keenum‘s poor performance against the Lions in London today, head coach Jeff Fisher told reporters after the game, per Gregg Rosenthal of NFL.com (Twitter links). In fact, Fisher said he was more likely to alter his receiving corps than make a switch at QB.Case Keenum (Vertical)

Keenum tossed four interceptions today against New York, including one on Los Angeles’ final offensive play as the club was attempting to drive and tie the game. An obvious miscommunication took place, as wide receiver Brian Quick broke off his route while Keenum threw the ball into the end zone and into the waiting arms of Giants defensive back Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie. Heading into today’s contest, Keenum had completed 62.5% of his passes for 1,417 yards, seven touchdowns, and six picks.

Having dropped three straight games, the Rams are now 3-4 and, pending the results of tonight’s game between the Seahawks and Cardinals, could be well behind Seattle in the NFC West. If Keenum continues to struggle, the calls for Los Angeles to play No. 1 overall pick Jared Goff will only get louder.

    I think Keenum deserves at least one more start. He’s been decent the past few games and 4 picks in one game shouldn’t warrant a switch. If he struggles next game, then sure, go to Goff. But at the very least, Keenum deserves one more start.

      4 picks doesn’t warrant a change? Then what does?

        Considering two of his picks were obviously on the receivers, then yes. Not much the QB can do to prevent a pick when one receiver just completely misses a wide open pass and the other can’t even run the correct route.

        You can’t blame Keenum for half the pics he’s had this season. In the last game one of the pics bounced off Austins hands. The last pic Keenum read the one on one coverage called the audible and the rec didn’t adjust the route.

    didn’t they play the Giants not the lions in London today?

    How can I trust this sites reporting when they mess up simple things like who is playing? Duh.
