“Elvis, Tupac and Obama walk into a quarterback room.” It sounds like the start of a bad joke, but those three men are important to the Los Angeles Rams.
Second-year quarterback Jared Goff wore a microphone against the Houston Texans for the NFL’s “Sound FX” series, and was it ever entertaining.
While going through pre-snap checks, Goff shouted audibles of Elvis, Tupac and Obama. Other checks included “Wilson, Hoosier” and “Ric Flair.”
The Rams’ audibles for Jared Goff are 🔥🔥🔥

Best of all, the audibles seemed to have worked perfectly, since Los Angeles pounded the Texans 33-7. Goff threw for a career-high 355 yards while tossing three scores, including a 94-yard strike to Robert Woods.
The audibles are just another enjoyable part of the team’s fun season. First-year head coach Sean McVay has energized the franchise, turned the league’s worst offense into a dynamic attack and entirely changed the perception of Goff.
One year after finishing 4-12, Los Angeles stands atop the NFC West at 7-2 and seems destined for the playoffs.
As Ric Flair would say, “WHOO!”
