    Re: Which Rams team is the greatest of all time?

    I still say the 1999 team was the best. There is something special about winning the SB and our own Rams history proves that it was never that easy to do.

    dat is just what me_thinks

    :tongue:

    Re: Which Rams team is the greatest of all time?

    Here's a link to the history of the greatest Rams team of all time, the 1951 Los Angeles Rams.

    Look at all the Pro Bowlers.....impressive lot.

The only physical injury Brady had was a slight sprained ankle that didn't keep him out of practice.

    Thus, I'm taking it your answer is you can't find anyone on the Pats roster that was as banged up as Kurt Warner? Because it would seem difficult to claim the injury factor evens out when you can't find a Pats player as important to them as Warner to the Rams suffering from as many injuries who missed practice time because of them.

    Yes, they did. However, I wasn't alive then, so I really can't make an honest claim that they were the best team ever. Certainly if that is your opinion then you are more than welcome to it. You'll get no argument from me.

    Do you have a copy of the two page play book from the 1951 team? I think the original version was three pages, but rumor has it, the third page was actually an add_en_dumb for the drop kick technique.

    Re: Which Rams team is the greatest of all time?

    Hey, Bob Waterfield and Norm Van Brocklin each QB'd this team.

    That could be the best QB tandem ever in the history of the Rams.

    Could very well be.

    One of those QBs, I forget witch, was also a very good punter.

    I seem to recall you and me going around and around on spelling policing just after "huntdux" threw a jab my way after my 1st post. Probably wouldn't do either of us any good to be so arrantly pedantic.

    The best team was the SB winning team.

    Which means it's a tie between the 1951 NFL Champions and the 1999 Champions.

    Glad that's settled.

    Bah Tx, you know what I meant. 1999.

    Empty rhetoric, what a waste.

    A wise man once said, "This is why I hate the off-season."

    Re: Which Rams team is the greatest of all time?

    Hmm, no wonder. I was sure I'd seen this thread before!

    The 1969 Rams team was a true powerhouse. Eleven, count them, 11, straight victories beginning with the season opener. People around the NFL were really starting to believe this would be the 1st totally undefeated team.

    Ramanator, your 3-way tie teams are excellent! :r
