    I think Bettis probably has the best chance, although I'm not a fan of how he departed. If he doesn't get in, I won't be the least bit disappointed.

    I could be wrong, but I would think Aeneas Williams is probably more known as a Cardinal than as a Ram because he has a greater body of work there. But that is not to say he shouldn't be regarded as an "ex-Ram". The guy did a GREAT job when he was with us and was a critical piece to our SB title. I think he's got a strong chance of getting in, but don't know if it will be on this ballot.

    And as much as I loved Kevin Greene (very underrated in my opinion), I don't think he'll get in, especially with guys like Charles Haley and Michael Strahan on the ballot. KG was largely (and unfairly) overlooked during his playing career and I don't see it being any different now that he's up for nomination.

    My personal favorite: Aeneas Williams. A man with character, consummate pro.

    * Superb DB - strong stats
    * Hard hitter - ask Steve Young
    * Excellent leader - mentor / teacher
    * True role model - on the field and off the field!




    But I suppose it is a toss up between K. Greene and J. Bettis for a shot at the HOF. Voted KG.

    Anyone who thinks Aeneas wasn't a Ram is crazy, but he never won a Superbowl here. He was here for our 2001/02 SB loss to the Cheatriots.
    BRUUUUUUUUCE

    How about those two INTs for TD vs Packers though! A playoff game victory to go to the SB.

    On this subject, here's a trivia question...

    There are 7 "pure" Rams (players who played for no other franchise) in the Hall of Fame.

    Can you (without using Google) name them?

    Five out of six of those are correct.

    Two more!

    Mack is correct.

    By the way, the incorrect player listed above is Hirsch, who started his career with the Chicago Rockets of the All-America Football Conference immediately prior to that league's merger with the NFL.

    As for the last one, here's a hint.

    If Arnold Schwarzenegger had met him, he might have been tempted to exclaim "see you at the party!"
