    Thumbs down Rams Playoff History

    Here is a little more history hope you ya all enjoy

    Rams Playoff History

    The Rams franchise has a long and impressive history of playoff appearances. Through the 2001 season, only the Dallas Cowboys (26), and the New York Giants (25) have participated in more playoff seasons than the Rams (24). Only the Dallas Cowboys (9) have more consecutive seasons with playoff appearances than the Rams (8). The Rams overall post-season record is 18-22 (.450).


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The Rams history of playoff appearances:
    The Rams organization begain in Ohio in 1936 as the Cleveland Rams in the second version of the American Football League. In 1937, they were awarded an NFL franchise. In 1946, the team moved to Los Angeles, California. In the early years, up through 1965, the NFL consisted of just 2 divisions, Eastern and Western (called American and National Conferences in 1950-1952). The playoffs were simple: the winners of each conference would play each other for the NFL title. There were occasional conference playoffs due to tied records. During this period, the Rams won their conference 5 times, and won 2 of their 5 NFL Championship Game appearances, once while still in Cleveland, and once in Los Angeles.

    Cleveland:
    1936 - AFL Championship - Cleveland Rams vs. Boston Shamrocks - Cancelled
    1945 - NFL Championship - Cleveland Rams 15 - Washington Redskins 14

    Los Angeles:
    1949 - NFL Championship - Philadelphia Eagles 14 - Los Angeles Rams 0
    1950 - National Conference Playoff - Los Angeles Rams 24 - Chicago Bears 20
    1950 - NFL Championship - Cleveland Browns 30 - Los AngelesRams 28
    1951 - NFL Championship - Los AngelesRams 24 - Cleveland Browns 17
    1952 - Western Division Playoff - Detroit Lions 31 - Los Angeles Rams 21
    1955 - NFL Championship - Cleveland Browns 38 - Los Angeles Rams 14


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Beginning in 1967, some changes began to appear which would have an impact on post-season playoffs. From 1967 through 1969, the NFL and the upstart AFL would remain separate leagues. However, the two league champions would play each other in an NFL-AFL championship game. In 1967, the NFL divided each conference into two divisions; the Eastern Conference had the Capitol and Century Divisions; the Western Conference had the Central and Coastal Divisions. At season's end, the two division winners in each conference would play for the conference title, and the conference champions would play for the NFL championship and the right to represent the NFL in the NFL-AFL championship game.
    1967 - Western Conference Playoff - Green Bay Packers 18 - Los Angeles Rams 7
    1969 - Western Conference Playoff - Minnesota Vikings 23 - Los Angeles Rams 20


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    In 1970, with the absorption of the AFL into the NFL, further re-structuring was required because of the large number of teams involved. The NFC consisted of most of the old NFL teams, and was now divided into three divisions, Eastern, Central, and Western. the AFC, which consisted of all of the old AFL teams plus the old NFL Baltimore Colts, Cleveland Browns, and Pittsburgh Steelers, also had three divisions named the same. In order to even out the playoff brackets, the non-division-winning team with the best record was designated a "wildcard" entry into the playoffs, and would play the division champion with the best record.
    1973 - NFC Divisional Playoff - Dallas Cowboys 27 - Los Angeles Rams 16
    1974 - NFC Divisional Playoff - Los Angeles Rams 19 - Washington Redskins 10
    1974 - NFC Championship - Minnesota Vikings 14 - Los Angeles Rams 10
    1975 - NFC Divisional Playoff - Los Angeles Rams 35 - St. Louis Cardinals 23
    1975 - NFC Championship - Dallas Cowboys 37 - Los Angeles Rams 7
    1976 - NFC Divisional Playoff - Los Angeles Rams 14 - Dallas Cowboys 12
    1976 - NFC Championship - Minnesota Vikings 24 - Los Angeles Rams 13
    1977 - NFC Divisional Playoff - Minnesota Vikings 14 - Los Angeles Rams 7


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    1978 saw the addition of a second wildcard entry into the playoffs. Under the new format, the weekend after the completion of the regular season would see two wildcard teams play, with the winner playing the division champion with the best record. This had the added bonus of allowing all division champions to have this "Wildcard Weekend" off before their first playoff game.
    1978 - NFC Divisional Playoff - Los Angeles Rams 34 - Minnesota Vikings 10
    1978 - NFC Championship - Dallas Cowboys 28 - Los Angeles Rams 0
    1979 - NFC Divisional Playoff - Los Angeles Rams 21 - Dallas Cowboys 19
    1979 - NFC Championship - Los Angeles Rams 9 - Tampa Bay Buccaneers 0
    1979 - NFL Championship (Super Bowl 14) - Pittsburgh Steelers 31 - Los Angeles Rams 19
    1980 - NFC Wildcard Playoff - Dallas Cowboys 34 - Los Angeles Rams 13
    1983 - NFC Wildcard Playoff - Los Angeles Rams 24 - Dallas Cowboys 17
    1983 - NFC Divisional Playoff - Washington Redskins 51 - Los Angeles Rams 7
    1984 - NFC Wildcard Playoff - New York Giants 16 - Los Angeles Rams 13
    1985 - NFC Divisional Playoff - Los Angeles Rams 20 - Dallas Cowboys 0
    1985 - NFC Championship - Chicago Bears 24 - Los Angeles Rams 0
    1986 - NFC Wildcard Playoff - Washington Redskins 19 - Los Angeles Rams 7
    1988 - NFC Wildcard Playoff - Minnesota Vikings 28 - Los Angeles Rams 17
    1989 - NFC Wildcard Playoff - Los Angeles Rams 21 - Philadelphia Eagles 7
    1989 - NFC Divisional Playoff - Los Angeles Rams 19 - New York Giants 13
    1989 - NFC Championship - San Francisco ***** 30 - Los Angeles Rams 3

    Thus ended a 17 year period that saw the Rams in the playoffs 14 of those years, more than any other team during that period of time.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    1990 saw another change in playoff eligibity -- a third wildcard team was added. The three wildcard teams and the division champion with the worst record would play during "Wildcard Weekend." Unfortunately, the Rams would not be involved in playoffs for the next 9 years. In fact, the Rams would finish last in their division 6 of those 9 years. But the dry spell ended in 1999 with the return of the Rams (now located in St. Louis) to the playoff scene.
    St. Louis:
    1999 - NFC Divisional Playoff - St. Louis Rams 49 - Minnesota Vikings 37
    1999 - NFC Championship - St. Louis Rams 11 - Tampa Bay Buccaneers 6
    1999 - NFL Championship (Super Bowl 34) - St. Louis Rams 23 - Tennessee Titans 16
    2000 - NFC Wildcard Playoff - New Orleans Saints 31 - St. Louis Rams 28
    2001 - NFC Divisional Playoff - St. Louis Rams 45 - Green Bay Packers 17
    2001 - NFC Championship - St. Louis Rams 29 - Philadelphia Eagles 24
    2001 - NFL Championship (Super Bowl 36) - New England Patriots 20 - St. Louis Rams 17

    Marc Bulger has never been the same since Michael Vick & Da Dirty Birds DOGGED him and the Rams, in the NFC Divisional Playoffs (47-17), January 15, 2005. Since that time it has also been discovered that Bulger's game is all BARK and no BITE. It's a DOG GONE shame, Marc ain't nothin' but a HOUND DOG, HE ain't never caught a rabbit and he ain't no friend of mine!! MARC DOGGY~DOG!!!

    Unfortunately, we have not been able to update this thread with any new games and scores. Perhaps Linehan should have ben one of our coaches back in the 90's.

    Re: Rams Playoff History

    All I know is, in the NFC West, anything can happen. Maybe not the AFC North, or the NFC East, or even the AFC South where it seems certain teams almost always prevail. But here in the NFC West, it's a crapshoot. One year we could be on top, the next year it could be SF or SEA, or even ARZ as they showed this year. All it takes is a quality motivated team, and we could be seeing the playoff picture next year.
