The Face of the Franchise will be in street clothes when the Rams open their season Monday night. Jared Goff will be inactive against the San Francisco 49ers.

The Rams claim otherwise, but this is a problem. Goff says this won’t compromise his long-term prospects, but this is a setback.

The Rams mortgaged their future to move into position to draft Goff, and he’s stuck behind Case Keenum and Sean Mannion?

Forget about what this means now. It’s not as if anyone was counting on a 21-year-old rookie quarterback to lead the Rams to the Super Bowl.

What should concern the Rams are the long-term implications.
