The Greatest Player In Rams History


Greatest Player In Rams HistoryHave you ever been sitting around with friends having a beer and a greatest franchise player discussion comes up? Well most of us have and it is always a great conversation starter and usually an argument starter as well. ESPN just had a great piece were they provided a poll for every franchise. Marshall Faulk was the clear winner (see results here) as the greatest Rams player in franchise history. What are your thoughts do you agree? Did he win by such a wide margin because everyone in the poll other than Isaac Bruce, has not played in the NFL in over 20 years? Should Kurt Warner and Torry Holt have been included? How could they leave jack Youngblood out of their poll? These are all great questions what are your answers?

    While Marshall Faulk was great, the greatest Ram ever was Deacon Jones. The problem with polls like these, is so many fans are clueless about their teams history.

    It’s almost like the LA Rams vs. St. Louis Rams.

    Marshall Faulk is one of the greatest players of all time, so I can see why he’s at the top. The guy was amazing for the Rams in a relative short period of time. So was Kurt Warner.

    But as any true Rams fan knows, you have to look back to the old school players for truly great innovators. Elroy “Crazlegs” Hirsch. Tom Fears. These players were so central to the team and changed the league. Without guys like this, you might not have a NFL today.

    And the fact Jack Youngblood is not on the list tells you how valid it is.

    Sports fans have a short memory span. I could debate it for years.

    yeah, any guy that has a broken leg in 2 places and says, “tape it”, this is the super bowl.” has got to be on that list. eric dickerson comes to mind, merlin olson. the deacon, yes in my opinion was the best. hirsh, fears, waterfield???? or the guys in the new ram era, good arguements. i think you just have to again break down the era that thay played in. the game changes so much over time, and each player would fit differently in those other eras? so how do you nail it to one????

    Too many “new school” fans on the internet. Clearly there were lots of LA Rams that deserve to be called the best, however Marshall brought us the rock!

    Waterfield and Van Brocklin also won NFL Championships with the Rams…but, just as fans ignore the greats of the team before the move in ’95, many fans forget the league existed before the NFL Championship Game was called the “Super Bowl.” Faulk belongs in the conversation, although Deacon Jones or Merlin Olsen would have gotten my vote. But where in the world was Tom Fears or Jack Youngblood?

    Football should take a page from baseball, and give more respect to the rich history and tradition of this great game.

    I am pretty sure it was like any other sports list, just used to start contraversy and stir up traffic.
