With all of the talk of whether or not LeBron James deserves to be among the greatest in NBA history and on the “Mount Rushmore” so to speak, here at Ramblin’ Fan we decided to make our own Mount Rushmore of former Rams players.
Deacon Jones is the face of the Rams franchise and you can’t not put him on the Rams Mount Rushmore. He is not only one of the greatest Rams of all time, but he is one of the greatest football players of all time.
Jones is said to be the creator of the statistic we know as the sack and because of that the NFL now has an award that goes out to the player with the most sacks at the end of the season.
Once again, putting “Reverend Ike” on Mount Rushmore is a given. Bruce is without a doubt one of the greatest Rams of all time and one of the few that the Rams have retired jerseys for.
Bruce also has one of the monumental moments in Rams history as he was on the receiving end of the magical game-winning touchdown reception in Super Bowl XXXIV that gave the Rams their only Super Bowl win in franchise history.
There is no doubt that a Rams running back belongs on the Mount Rushmore of Rams players. The only question is, which one do you put up Dickerson, Faulk, or Jackson.
When you think of the great Rams running back however, Dickerson is the first one that comes to mind which is why he gets on Mount Rushmore. Dickerson also has the most rushing yards ever by a running back in NFL history.
Mike Jones may not have been one of the greatest Rams of all-time as he only spent four seasons in St. Louis and bounced from team to team his entire career, but he is the holder of the greatest play in Rams history known as “the tackle” when he tackled Titans wide receiver Kevin Dyson at the one-yard line giving the Rams the win and title as Super Bowl XXXIV Champions.
That is our St. Louis Ram Mount Rushmore. Be sure to let us know who you would have in your St. Louis Rams Mount Rushmore and let us know what you think of our list. Go Rams!
