    Numbers 0 through 25
    Whose missing?

    Wearing No. 12 in 1994 and No. 13 in '95 was QB Chris Miller. He played the rest of his NFL career with Atlanta.

    [ We'll soon get to a special No. 13. ]

    RB Tom McCormick played a short NFL career of four years -- probably due to injuries. Three of these years were with the Rams (1953-55). Jersey No. 23. Was later an assistant coach in the NFL.

    Among the careers that never took off in the NFL was that of RB Marcus Dupree.



    Dupree had been a fleeting comet in college where he had success at OU. Then, encouraged by Walter Payton himself, he played two years in the NFL, both with Rams: 1990-91. He ran for a combined total 251 yards on 68 carries and scored one TD. Injuries were the main problem of his quick demise.

    There's a book titled "The Courting of Marcus Dupree" and also an ESPN documentary, 'The Best That Never Was' from their 30 of 30 Series that tell the sad sports story of this good and humble man.


    MD played his 1st year with jersey No. 34 in honor of his friend and mentor, Walter Payton. Then No. 22.

    Synonymous with the Rams GSOT: Marshall Faulk.

    Superman wears No. 28 and beginning in 1999 he helps transform modern era pro football as part of a monster machine that scored points almost at will, all the way to victory in SB XXXIV. He was a Ram until 2005.

    -


    Our Marshall rushed for just shy of 7,000 yards as a Ram, taking 58 carries to the end zone. A gifted receiver as well, Faulk caught 470 passes with the Rams for over 4,000 yards and 27 TDs (all three of these stats surpass what many WRs accomplish in an NFL career). In fact, in 1999 Faulk gained over 1,000 yards both on the ground and via air attack, a seldom accomplishment in the NFL: a thousand yards rushing AND receiving!?! Mercy.

    Seven times in his career he scored a 2-point conversion (an NFL record among other's of his).


    - -

    Simply remarkable results. But again, this was the Rams' GSOT and Marshall made much of this happen on his own merits. Pro Bowl and All-Pro several times. Was a shoe-in into the HOF, Class of 2011.




    Below, before he became Superman with the Rams...

    Brandon Gibson, No. 11. --

    I was sorry to see this WR-in-the-making leave. He played for the Rams from 2009-12: 174 catches, over 2,000 yards, 9 TDs.

    Okay, he only played two years in the NFL, 1965-66, both with the Rams (six games combined). No. 20.

    Steve Heckard was there at WR.

    "One is the loneliest number...". So the oldie song goes.

    PK Mike Lansford used this No. 1 jersey with the Rams from 1982-90 and had plenty of company to celebrate his clutch game winning field goals (never missed a tying game or GW FG). Played his whole NFL career with the Rams and during his playing years became leading scorer in Rams history. Moustache, barefoot and all.




    I've used this image below before but it is worth reliving. Rams win 26-24 in 1983 over New Orleans with a last play, game winning 42 yard FG by Lansford to go to the playoffs (left photo). Clic on images.

    As mentioned in page 1, the STL Rams are among the few teams in professional sports to have a player with every jersey number, from 0 to 99, probably in the world. Granted it is not any special feat for a team to attain this - any team would rather win championships - but by the same token, it is not easy to get there, to build a coincidental history of players donning numbers 0 - 99.


    Punter Mike Horan played for the Rams in 1997 and 1999, including SB XXXIV (he then retired after a long 16 year career and a Rams SB ring).

    Horan is the only Rams player to wear jersey No. 2; keep in mind we started this compilation with players from the L.A. Rams era, i.e., 1946.

    From 1997-07 our 'Money' man was PK Jeff Wilkins. A Pro Bowl and All-Pro kicker, No. 14 made three of four field goals in SB XXXIV and in 2003 kicked a career-high 39 FGs. In 2006 Wilkie scores all of the Rams 18 points to defeat Denver, 18-10 during the regular season.

    "Due to" the Rams GSOT, in 2000 Wilkins was only able to attempt 17 FGs ... made all of them good.

    He's the Rams all-time leading scorer (1,223 pts). 265 of his 307 career FGs were Ram kicks.

    End (wide receiver) Duane Allen played for the Rams in 1961-64. He played sporadically as a back-up but No. 25 scored five TDs from seven passes caught! One was for 48 yards.

    How things change sometimes, and wouldn't you know it, "not always for the better".

    Back-up QB Chris Chandler played 12 games for the Rams in 1994 with good productivity: 108 pass completions from 176 attempts, 1,352 yds; 7 TDs, 2 INTs.

    Having played 15 years with six other teams (before and after 1994), the veteran Chandler was brought back to the Rams in 2004. [Wore jersey No. 17 the 1st time and No. 12 when he returned.]

    This time around CC played five games, threw 62 passes, completed 35 for 462 yds, 2 scores and 8 INTs. That was his last season as a player in the NFL; his best years were in Atlanta and Houston. But we got him covered here as an ex-Ram.

    RB / FB Brian Leonard, 2nd round pick (52) by the Rams in 2007.

    Alas, a project that did not prosper as expected (in part due to bad coaching / management). 'Leaping Leonard', No. 23, underwent surgery on both shoulders at the end of 2007 although he did rush for 100 yards in October that year vs the Cardinals. In 2008 he only played two games.

    From the distinguished school of Harvard we had the QB services of Ryan Fitzpatrick. Fitz was acquired by the Rams in 2005 as a 7th round Draft pick and played two years, '05-06.


    As a rookie No. 12 made a name for himself vs the Texas in November when he was called in the 2nd quarter to replace Jamie Martin. Fitzpatrick led the Rams from a 24–3 halftime deficit to a 33–27 overtime win, throwing for 310 yards and three touchdowns, completing 63.3% of his passes and 117.4 QB rating for the game. This made Fitzpatrick one of only seven players who passed for more 300 yards in their NFL debut.

    Perhaps a flash in the pan with the Rams? We'll really never know because he was inconsistent during his 2nd year. Clic on images below...

    NFL Pro-Football Hall of Fame QB Norm Van Brocklin was a gun-ho Rams player from 1949 to 1957 (including the '51 NFL Champions). As a Rams QB he threw for 16,114 yards (8.64 YPA -- those were 12 game regular seasons) and 118 TDs; also added 5 TDs rushing.

    - Mostly wore jersey No. 11, but also had 25.
