    Which Ram player is the greatest of all time

    If we can do a Rams team of all time, who alone was the best player the Rams had and could carry a team. Not your favorite, but the best :tongue:

    Offense -
    Defense -

    Re: Which Ram player is the greatest of all time

    I evaluate this on the basis of sustained excellence over a long period of time while playing for the Rams. Based on that, my selections are:

    Offense: Jackie Slater
    Defense: Jack Youngblood

    No argument from me on the long term contribution, although i would put merlin olsen in a tie with jack yougblood on the defensive side.

    Peak performance, in what i am sure will be a shock to everyone on this board, i give to Marshall Faulk with a slight nod over captain kurt, based on my previously stated arguments that for a window of time (call it 99-01), faulk was the very best all around player in the nfl.

    Re: Which Ram player is the greatest of all time

    speaking of Olsen, I have heard that Jones was only great because of Olsen. Olsen's pure power and run stuffing ablity made it possible for Jones to only have to focus on a pass rush. I have also heard Deacon was terrible against the run and lined up so far outside that he was impossible to touch and was little of a factor except to the pass.

    Re: Which Ram player is the greatest of all time

    Offense-I would have to go with Eric Dickerson. No one could control a game better than him.

    Defense-Nolan Cromwell. The guy could do it all. Great in run support and could blanket recievers, a 3 time defensive back of the year and one time defensive player of the year.

    Re: Which Ram player is the greatest of all time

    I know it's the offseason and all but why do we need to do this? You can't single out one Rams player as the greatest ever any more than you can single out one Rams team as the greatest ever. I think it takes away from what the others accomplished.

    ferter....it's the offseason. No trolls. No whiners. No aints. We haven't lost 5 in a row so we don't need to kick anyone off the board yet.

    Have some fun.....it's healthy.


    LOL

    I dunno, these threads are started to have some discussion while basically nothing goes on in the NFL. I don't think it takes away at all from what others accomplished because all we're listing is our opinion if we had to narrow it down to one guy. If you're really that opposed to it, don't read it, I guess. :confused:

    I'm not exactly sure why we needed this comment either...

    Anywho, my answers:

    Offense: Dickerson
    Defense: Youngblood

    Re: Which Ram player is the greatest of all time

    Offense - Orlando Pace --- Without him, Faulk and Warner would not have looked as good from 99-01

    Defense - Nolan Cromwell --- You have to love a DB that could play like a LB

    So, are you saying you would be opposed to my next poll: Who would win in a fight: Dennis Harrah or Batman?

    Batman---he knew Kung Fu

    Re: Which Ram player is the greatest of all time

    How about dennis harrah vs. timmerman. That would be a fair fight and a brawl of epic magnitude, comporable to the first battle between hulk hogan and andre the giant.
