    I was blessed to witness ED live 6 times at the Big A. I also was able to watch Faulk live as well. I sm huge marshall fan. What he helped bring to the Rams will always be close to my heart. But, IMO, no player has ever donned a Ram uniform and struck fear in an opponent in the manner that ED did when he was with Rams. He was power in motion and had breakaway ability everytime he touched ball.

    I voted for Dickerson, but was so excited that Flipper made the list......

    Flipper, Ron Brown, and Henry Ellard were all stars that were too easily forgotten due to Bruce & HOlt's success...

    I think Flipper's Record breaking game was the single best performance in Rams history....

    I was around for the Dickerson era but my vote goes to Faulk, no question. He was more fluid with better moves which were sometimes jaw dropping.

    I understand where you... (with all due respect)... old guys are coming from with the great Dickerson, but as a "Super Bowl Baby", I have to go with the guy that made me love football- MARSHALL MARSHALL MARSHAL!

    Since the poll is about the open field then my pick is for sure Marshall. Sure Eric was a swift runner in the open field but watching Marshall make that last guy miss so many times was priceless. Kind of makes me want throw on some highlights right now lol.

    I can really only go back to one play, the great catch and run of Isaac Bruce for the Super Bowl winning TD.

    "And they're not going to catch him today!"

    Re: Most Exciting Ram Ever In The Open Field

    New guy here and glad to have found other like-minded Rams fans. When I saw this poll, before looking at the names available, my first thought went to Wendell Tyler. When he was healthy, he was a marvelous talent. Dickerson was a fantastic back, but I'm not sure I would say he was the best "open field" runner. He could sure burst through holes at top speed and at that point there was no catching him. But he did not have the lateral movement of Faulk or Tyler. Great call on Leroy Irvin too...he was a gem.
