    Cant go wrong with any of these choices but I cant believe there is no Jack Youngblood on this list.

    I voted Faulk and why not? He has brought excitement to this franchise, unheard of since the days of Eric Dickerson, except with a ring! I watch video on Faulk's performance and that is by far the best I've seen. Dickerson was straight up and off to the races, but faulk would cut back, accelerate, slow down, make a move and off to the races. Not even LT could do what Faulk would do in his prime!

    I'm going to assume that someone screwed up and Lovelle Pinkney was left off that list by accident...

    What, no Youngblood? I'll take Slater then. They were my heroes when I was a kid. Still are.

    I'm still looking for "The Ransom Rambler", Nolan Cromwell...

    Faulk probably deserves to top the list and then Jackie Slater but I decided to acknowledge Merlin Olsen. 14 Pro-Bowls and started 126 consecutive games( yes, BRM that means 126 games in a row!).

    I cut my horns on Gabriel and The Fearsome Foursome, after all....

    Ditto, yes sir! Voted for the Deacon although I hesitated between him and Merlin 'The Mule' Olsen. Nonetheless, not placing Jack Youngblood in that list is simply a big mistake.


    As of Monday night, with over 9,700 votes:

    Who is the greatest player in Rams history?

    40.5% Marshall Faulk, RB (1999-2005):
    Dynamic rushing-receiving threat who had three seasons of at least 1,300 rushing yards.


    18.8% Deacon Jones, DE (1961-71):
    Widely regarded as the best pass-rusher before sacks were officially recorded.


    18.3% Eric Dickerson, RB (1983-87):
    Short tenure, but big impact. Set NFL single-season record with 2,105 rushing yards.


    7.6% Merlin Olsen, DT (1962-76):
    A 14-time Pro Bowler, started 126 games in a row, anchored ''Fearsome Foursome.''


    5.4% Jackie Slater, OL (1976-95):
    An immovable object for two decades, he made seven Pro Bowls and the Hall of Fame.


    5.2% Isaac Bruce, WR (1994-2007):
    Eight seasons with at least 1,000 receiving yards and 84 career TD receptions.


    2.7% Norm Van Brocklin, QB (1949-57):
    Hall of Famer excelled as passer and punter, making nine Pro Bowls.


    1.1% Elroy Hirsch, HB-DE (1949-57):
    ''Crazylegs'' pioneered flanker and set record with 1,495 receiving yards in 1951.


    0.3% Tom Mack, OL (1966-78):
    Hall of Fame anchor who made the Pro Bowl in 11 of 13 seasons.


    0.1% Bob Waterfield, QB (1945-52):
    Led league in passing TDs his first two seasons. A three-time All-Pro.

    I am not 100% sure but ONE reception in eight games for 13 yards probably won't get anyone, even Lovelle, on the list.

    Well not on THIS list anyways...

    Kurt Warner. No 'greatest show' without him.

    No Cromwell? No Youngblood? No Pace?

    I think the Deacon is the answer regardless, but still..........what the heck?!
