From Jon Hadley-
Coach Mike Martz & Co. are on pace to set a franchise record for most wins in a decade. This decade (2000-2004) the Rams have won 51 regular season games. Rams CB Jerametrius Butler is one of two players in the NFL to register six or more takeaways in each of the last two seasons… the other is Baltimore’s Edward Reed.
From Len Pasquarelli-
… How enamored are the St. Louis Rams of veteran linebacker Dexter Coakley, signed as a free agent only a day after his release by the Dallas Cowboys? Coach Mike Martz has already named Coakley a team captain. Coakley, by the way, will play the strong side spot in 2005 after eight seasons of mostly lining up at weak-side linebacker.

Another thing to consider is the "salary cap" and the effect it has had on the Rams ability to keep key players.
All things considered, I do not think 51 wins, thus far, is anything to scoff at.

Here's the breakdown by decade:
decade --- wins-losses-ties winning %
40's --- 50-45-5 .500
50's --- 68-49-3 .567
60's --- 63-68-7 .457
70's --- 98-42-4 .681
80's --- 86-66-0 .566
90's --- 58-102-0 .363
00's --- 51-29-0 .638
00's (projected) 102-58 .638"Before the gates of excellence the high gods have placed sweat; long is the road thereto and rough and steep at first; but when the heights are reached, then there is ease, though grievously hard in the winning." --- Hesiod
Look at percentage
So if you look at percentage it says that the only decade that is better was the 70's where the Rams won at a better clip. I think you couple the Superbowl win and appearance with the 2nd best decade winning percentage, and I think it is a strong argument for the best decade in the Rams history (though I am partial to teams with nicknames like Deacon, the Fearsome Foursome, etc.). We need some more nicknames on this team...GSOT wasn't bad though.
