Whenever making a list of all-time greats, it’s logical to think someone was missed. When talking about quarterbacks from any era, this is especially true. The LA Rams are no exception to the rule.

Founded in 1936 as the Cleveland Rams, the organization would play in the American Football League before becoming a member of the NFL. The franchise played in St. Louis, MO from 1995 to 2015, where they would win Super Bowl XXXIV against the Tennessee Titans and lose to the New England Patriots XXXVI.

In 2016, the Rams would return home to the not-so-cozy confines of the Los Angeles Coliseum before eventually moving into the 70,000 Dan capacity So-Fi Stadium. The $6 billion dollar facility would house the Rams and the Los Angeles Chargers. The LA Rams would write a new chapter by hiring Sean McVay, who would lead them to two Super Bowls, eventually winning a Lombardi Trophy in 2021.

While Matthew Stanford deserves a lot of credit for helping the Rams win a championship in 2021 and helping the franchise break new ground, a few other quarterbacks have helped shape the organization.

From 1960 to 2003, the Rams have had a string of very mediocre to extraordinary quarterbacks. One has won a Super Bowl, while the other two have not. Yet their contributions to the organization are undeniable.
