    Isiah Robertson was a playmaking force who was as athletic as he was fun to watch.

    Re: Favorite Rams: Poll #6 - Linebackers

    Back in the '70s, I had only gotten to see the Rams semi-regularly on the east coast. They were a very good team, and on the west coast, so they would be on after the Giants lost the 1:00 pm game.

    In my youth I saw Jim Youngblood make a VERY impressive play against the playoff rival Vikings during the regular season. Tommy Kramer dropped back to pass near his own end zone, and Youngblood came through cleanly. A sack? Not just a sack. No "in the grasp rule" then. Jim Youngblood gave him what looked like a WWF airplane spin before taking him down. It was like the NFL equivalent of the slam dunk, where the QB is the ball. That stayed with me.

    Man, these polls are tough!

    Voted Les Richter, just as tough. And our 1st All-Rams HOF LB. ...Is he?

    I was leaning towards London, but I had to go with Mike "The Tackle" Jones. That play will live in infamy, and I will never forget it.

    Re: Favorite Rams: Poll #6 - Linebackers

    Had to be Hacksaw for me, love the story and he could play ball with the best. Kevin Greene & Isiah Robertson probably the most gifted LB's we ever had. I like the description of Jim Youngblood too was fun when we had two Youngbloods great days for our defense! Good Job guys! Next time an about to be ex wifey wants a car I am going to go Hacksaw on it! LOL

    Kevin Greene. "I love it when I hit a quarterback and they fold under you and the snot bubbles out of their nose. I love a good snot bubbler."

    Re: Favorite Rams: Poll #6 - Linebackers

    Kevin Greene. He just attacked QB's and RB's with relentless pursuit. That's a great quote demiurge, hadn't heard it before, but sums up perfectly why he was my favorite. Shame on the Rams FO for either trading him or allowing to leave via FA. One of their many transgressions.

    Honorable mentions to Isaiah Robertson and Jim Youngblood and London Fletcher for outstanding play at the position.

    Go Rams!

    It was tough deciding between Reynolds, Robertson, or Jim Youngblood. I went with Hacksaw because he was so tough in the middle. Tom Brookshier once said, "Teams need a tough guy on defense, and the Rams have theirs in Hacksaw Reynolds."

    What a shame it was to lose Pro Bowl / All-Pro London Fletcher.

    Terrific, long career after four years with the Rams (1998-01). Glad he was part of the Rams Super Bowl team though.

    A lot of guys I truly liked but I'm going rogue on this one and say Jim Collins. I knew him and went to high school in NJ with his younger sister Wendy. Good guy and a very good player. Was at his house several times back in the day.

    I'm bumping each of these threads to allow anyone who wants to get in a vote to do so before Monday. At that point, I'll close these threads and post a final poll in which the winners of each category will compete for the title of ClanRam's All-Time Favorite Ram!
