    Offseason Trivia...

    I was looking through a book called NFL Stars of 1974 and was reminded about a Heisman winner we drafted that year. Here are two questions for you (no Googling):

    1. Name the Heisman trophy winners that have been drafted by the Rams.

    2. Name all Heisman trophy winners that have been on the Rams roster.

    Time is yours.

    Re: Offseason Trivia...

    I will be terrible w/ this list probably but I DO know that in '73 we took John Cappelletti out of Penn State. I know this 'cause he was my fave player .... till Mr. Youngblood. What was that old movie about he and his brother?
    If a team won their division seven straight times, that would be a NFL record. Now add on that team did it with seven different QB's in seven straight years,that record is unbeatable. To do that feat, you must of had a great Defense. Jack Youngblood was the captain of that defense.

    John Cappelletti, Eric Crouch and Sam Bradford are correct for both questions.

    Charles White played for the Rams, although wasn't drafted

    Doug Flutie was drafted by the Rams, but I'm not sure if he ever actually made it onto a roster before his rights were traded

    Terry Baker was drafted by the Rams at number 1 overall, the only player to win the Heisman and play in the Final Four

    I'm thinking the Rams have drafted close to 10 Heisman winners, but I couldn't begin to name all of them.

    You're right Ferter, here are the Heisman winners who were DRAFTED by the Rams:

    1959 - Billy Cannon (signed with the AFL Houston Oilers)

    1962- Terry Baker (played 3 seasons with the Rams)

    1965 - Mike Garrett (signed with the AFL KC Chiefs)

    1967 - Gary Beban (played for the Redskins)

    1973 - John Cappelletti (played 5 years with the Rams)

    1984 - Doug Flutie (played for everyone but the Rams)

    2001 - Eric Crouch (played in NFL Europe and the CFL)

    2008 - Sam Bradford

    Next question:

    Dick Vermeil, of course, was the head coach when the Rams won the Super Bowl. What other positions has Vermeil held in the Rams organization?

    Re: Offseason Trivia...

    I think I remember reading a tidbit somewhere that he was an old Los Angeles Rams coach... He was either Special Teams coach or Offensive Coordinator, but I can't remember which... I know he wasn't Head Coach, and I can't see him playing Defensive Coordinator. Was he Special Teams, or was that even invented yet?
