Sean Mannion, rookie QB for the Rams, is still getting used to the NFL, but the player’s fans and PPH bookie services were glad to learn that things are getting easier for the player as he adjusts to life in the league.
While playing at Oregon State, Mannion did a great job on the field as the team’s starter – a status that was able to keep for four years. He held almost all of the passing records in the history of the school. Now the QB is focusing on his switch to the NFL, and his fans hope that process goes as smoothly as possible.
“It’s been great just coming in and working with the veterans. They are all great guys and we have a great quarterback room,” Mannion said at the Rams’ organized team activities, by way of the team’s website. “I’m just trying to get to know them and obviously getting to know the playbook. I think I’m picking up the offense really well and I think it’s just a matter of knowing all the little adjustments and little details to every play.”
PPH bookie services found out that it didn’t take long at all for the rookie to learn that in the NFL, details matter more than they do at the college level. The player’s fans are glad that he quickly learned the lesson, and hope that he uses this knowledge to his advantage when the new season arrives.
“Everything is so fine,” said Mannion. “I think there might be balls where in college it could be a completion and in the NFL it’s not going to be a completion. So I think the margin for error, to me, has been the thing that’s stood out as the biggest difference from college.”
In the Rams’ roster, Mannion is the only QB who’s also a rookie, but this would be the first time that he and Nick Foles – the starter- learn the offense, and they’re working together on this.
“It’s kind of unique because Nick has been going through the process of learning as well,” said Mannion. “I think it has been great, but at the same time, even though he’s new to this system he has a ton of knowledge on being a pro and different concepts he ran in Philadelphia. But like I said, I’m still trying to lean on the veterans.”
Mannion is currently competing with Case Keenum and Austin Davis for the job as the Rams’ backup QB.
