    Rams Mt. Rushmore

    Profootballtalk is passing the time in the offseason by creating a "Mt. Rushmore" for each team, or the 4 great players that would theoretically be on a monument for the team.

    The link to their video argument is on the profootballtalk home page, but they concluded with these 4:


    Writer's picks:
    Marshall Faulk
    Jack Youngblood
    Kurt Warner
    Deacon Jones

    Fan Voting(?) picks:
    Marshall Faulk
    Eric Dickerson
    Kurt Warner
    Deacon Jones

    In any case, I thought it would be a fun exercise for the Clan to come up with their own suggestions. I'm not sure a poll would be in order here, as there might be plenty of write ins, so just submit your four favorites!

    Re: Rams Mt. Rushmore

    Wow. Four ... too few for me right now! Maybe a "The Magnificent Seven" selection would be easier and more just?



    But okay, four "of the 7", IMO, would be...

    Marshall Faulk
    Deacon Jones
    Merlin Olsen
    Kurt Warner

    Glad you added Bruce. It's tough for me to imagine mine (still trying to decide) without him in it.

    Re: Rams Mt. Rushmore

    And the answer is.........Olsen, Youngblood, Bruce, and Jones.

    The judges would also accept Slater, Cowan, and/or Meador.

    Van Brocklin and Hirsch, Honorable Mention?!?!

    Crazy Legs Hirsch was rolling up 1990s numbers with 1950s rules. Van Brocklin won a championship with the Rams and is in the Hall of Fame.

    Warner was MVP in the Super Bowl, and the Rams only have three championships, so I'll give him the QB slot. I'd put Dickerson for RB, Hirsch for receiver and Deacon Jones for defense. This represents four different Rams eras. (50s, 60s-70s, 80s, 00s)

    Three HoFers and one future HoFer.

    Coach Martz .... is that you?

    I don't think we can go with the Fearsome Foursome, and I don't think we can have two RBs or 2 QBs when you only have four picks. Faulk is one of the dozen best RBs of all time. I've seen both, and I think Dickerson was better.
