Very interesting view on QBs Waterfield / Bradford, HUbison! For one thing, I hope Bradford remains a Ram.
Annnnnd gets better with experience. ;)
Still need to scan our historic All-Time Rams QB.
I agree on Carl Ekern.....San Jose State alumni....like Dick Vermeil, Bill Walsh :) A good Ram for many years.
I also think Carl Ekern is more than worthy. Crazy Legs should get a pass since the only NFL team he played for was the Rams. Reading through the thread I don't recall seeing Les Richter. I think he is definitely worth consideration.
I second Lamar Lundy for DE. Fearsome Foursome member has to be in.
Does it count against them if they played for the CFL? I want to nominate Dieter Brock. Errrrr....no, I don't actually. Bob Waterfield is the QB in this contest.
I added Hirsch as a third WR (utilizing the little known pre-merger exemption).
We're almost there.
Still need a MLB, and I'm open to suggestions to bump players already listed.
I just realized... the MLB is a no-brainer: HOFer Les Richter!
But again, nostalgia has its place in something like this, and he's a HOFer and one of the best of his day.
My gosh! Look at those two lines!Quote:
OT: Charlie Cowan
OT: Jackie Slater
OG: Tom Mack
OG: Dennis Harrah or Joe Scibelli
C: Rich Saul
DE: Jack Youngblood
DT: Merlin Olsen
DT: D'Marco Farr or Larry Brooks
DE: Lamar Lundy or Leonard Little
Would anyone bump either Mel Owens or Carl Ekern for George Andrews? (probably not, but I thought I'd mention his name)
Turns out yes, he was traded, but he never actually played for any other team. The New York Yanks drafted him, folded, his rights went to the Dallas Texans, who traded him to the Rams before he ever played a game.
So nice find. :)
Interesting that the only "pure Ram" with a Super Bowl ring is D'Marco Farr.
