Los Angeles has constructed a roster that should help the new coaching staff make a truer, fuller evaluation of its young quarterback when this season is over.
LaFleur was answering a question about coach Sean McVay's methods of game plan strategy and playcalling and the positive effect they've had on the Rams' offense.
That staff included holdover offensive coordinator Rob Boras, who'd assumed the job when the team fired Frank Cignetti Jr. in December 2015.
Some benefit, sure, to being around and learning the NFL life, but as a player, Goff did not enjoy the same kind of success or development as fellow rookies Carson Wentz and Dak Prescott did in Philadelphia and Dallas.
He didn't play as well in a Game 2 loss against Washington, whose coach obviously knew what McVay's offense would be trying to do, and the Rams could have a similar problem Thursday night against Shanahan's 49ers.
