All eyes in Rams Nation were glued to NFL Network last night on what was unofficially known as “Rams Day.” To start the evening, the broadcast touched on the greatness of individual players, like Marshall Faulk, as well as highlighting the overall dominance of the offensive grouping during that time. They took an in-depth look at Dick Vermeil, who returned from an early coaching exit to bring St. Louis it’s first, and only, Lombardi Trophy. However, the grand finale was a replay of Super Bowl XXXIV, when the St. Louis Rams faced off against the Jeff Fisher-led Tennessee Titans for the 1999 world championship. Not only did they show every glorious, heart-wrenching snap, NFL Network brought on Kurt Warner to host the event, allowing the MVP of that contest to share never-before heard stories and incite from the game.
If that wasn’t enough to get Rams Nation excited for the 2014 regular season, the St. Louis Rams also unveiled a new website dedicated to arguably the most dynamic offense in the history of the NFL; the GreatestShowOnTurf.com.
When you enter the site, the first thing you’ll notice is the classic St. Louis Rams gold and blue throwback colored washing over the page. Start exploring that actual site, and you can find highlight videos, reactions and interviews with players from the ’99 roster, and retrospective articles and infographics detailing the legendary performances put on by the GSOT. There are also links to “Sack Pack” ticket packages for the 2014 regular season and a shop specifically dedicated to throwback gear, which the Rams will wear against the San Francisco 49ers and the New York Giants this season.
If you missed out last night, you owe it to yourself to re-live the “glory days” through the content on the site. Even if you were watching, there are still plenty of videos, articles, and pictures that did not make it to the broadcast last night. Go check it out!
