    Several "ram" hall of famers are missing from that list, not the least of which are bob brown, ron yary, james lofton, george trafton, tex schramm and pete rozelle, and that is just off the top of my head. Its a joke that clark shaughnessey isnt in the HOF. Did i mention sid gillman?

    James Lofton et al will be listed as Rams Hall of Famers as soon as Jerry Rice's number is retired by the Seahawks.

    Re: Rams History found at another site

    Well, it depends on how you define the term doesnt it? Lofton and yary played for the rams, thus, in some sense at least, they are hall of famers that were rams. I appreciate the perspective, but my collector mentality is such that anyone that wore the horns and is in the hall of fame is a rams hall of famer. By the way, that doesnt mean i would put lofton in the rams hall of fame or call him an all time great ram. But he is a hall of famer and he was a ram, thus, a list of rams in the hall of fame should include him, in the same way that a list of seahawks in the hall of fame would include rice or mets in the hall of fame would include willie mays.

    Wait a sec, Bruce was not on that Pro Bowl list. He was a Pro Bowler 4 times.

    wikipedia:
    "2001 - Named to play in Pro Bowl (did not play - injured)
    2000 - Named to play in Pro Bowl (did not play - injured)
    1999 - Named to play in Pro Bowl
    1996 - Named to play in Pro Bowl"

    Well, GC, you'd have to include Namath on that list, too, right?

    absolutely ramsfansam! i forgot joe willie with the list off the top of my head.That is an outstanding call on your part. Marv levy is another one, as is george trafton, bill george, night train lane, tommy mcdonald, andy robustelli etc.

    Jim benton by the way is the best player NOT in the hall of fame who is otherwise eligible.
