    How to define the gsot

    what years encompass the gsot? 99-01 is easy. However, in 2003, we had a very very prolific offensive season despite the playoff loss to carolina. One way to define it would be 99-03. To put it another way, was bulger ever the qb of the gsot.

    To me, the GSOT is characterized by Martz's system, so that would make it from 1999-2005.

    I dont buy that avenger. The GSOT infers a dominant and overpowering offense. If you define gsot just by the martz system, doesnt that make the 2006 lions gsot part 2? The teams offensive output plummeted after the 2003 regular season. while we beat seattle in the playoffs in 2004, we still werent a gsot and obviously, we werent dominant in 2005.

    Maybe it is GSOT II (of course, the sequel is almost never as good as the original).

    Re: How to define the gsot

    Gsot ended in 02, It was an elite group, Warner went down and Bulger came in and that ended it, because the group then changed. what we have right now wouold be the sequal, especially with Bennit and Mcmicheal, if we get some good drafts we could be good

    Re: How to define the gsot

    I've always considered just the big three seasons (99-01) as the definite GSOT days, when they scored an NFL record 500+ points for three straight seasons and had the two SB appearances. Anything after that was just Martz Madness, good or bad.

    Re: How to define the gsot

    1999-2003. 2003 represented the last chance the Rams had of competing for a SB title in that era. That's why, to me, the Carolina loss hurts as much if not moreso than SB 36...

    nothing hurts more than that SB36 loss, i still can't watch the replay of that game and i turn the channel whenever highlights of that game are shown.

    That's 100%, totally -- and proudly -- accurate, IMO. :r What an offense! Mercy!

    I have been replaying that SB in my mind ever since the loss. What they shouldn't or should've done, I came to the conclusion that the Patriots were a heck of a lot better than people gave them credit for.the Rams had the Carolina game in their hands with 2:35 left to play in the 4th. Martz didn't trust Bulger and his offense enough to get the job done. He cost them another SB appearance. That was the final straw for me...

    I still say the show lasted until Martz left (which, to be precise, was a few games into 2005).

    That said, it definitely "jumped the shark" earlier. Maybe in 2003 as GC suggested.

    How do I define the GSOT?

    An awe inspiring era that us RAM fans (and most NFL historians) will never forget. I also define it as OVER.

    Re: How to define the gsot

    MIKE MARTZ. Thank you for Marshall Faulk Martz, without Faulk there wouldn't have been a GSOT and there would never have been a Super Bowl. It's well documented how Martz lobbied more for Faulk than a paid tobacco lobbiest on Capital Hill and Faulk was the glue to the GSOT.
