    Best rams running back.

    Who are your favorite rams running backs? Faulk can do it all, Dickerson was an excellent pure runner with good moves and bettis was a powerful and deceptively quick bruiser. Any thoughts?

    Lawrence McCutcheon. He had some great years as a Ram.

    Ram runners...

    Probably Eric Dickerson as a Ram (not as a Colt or a Raider). He was so fast and swift! Very different vertical approach at 6'-3" than the stockier 5-10, 5-11 running backs like the bruisers, Bettis, Charles White, Lawrence McCuthcheon, Dick Bass, etc.

    Different backs, purposes and yard gainers. Marshall Faulk, an overachiever due to his natural power and the skills to make so many plays work successfully. Then you have Robert Holcomb and James Hodgins, powerful plowing players that work great either as blockers, decoys or secondary receivers.

    Today's halfbacks and fullbacks are more sophisticated, I think. That's where a Marshall Faulk really stands out. Finesse, moves and speed. It used to be they were more of a meat-n-potatoes position; not too many fancy formats (except, maybe, for the screen). Now there are so many optionals and variables that come even from college teams.

    Very good thread, thanks! :cool:

    And ...GO MARSHALL! GO RAMS!!!
