    Recent and Current Rams as Hall of Famers?

    I was disappointed to see that no Rams made it to the recently announced Hall of Fame list of 25 Semi-finalists.

    Which recent and current Rams do you think should or will eventually become Hall of Famers from the 1999 team through the present?

    Here are my thoughts:
    Locks: Marshall Faulk, Orlando Pace
    Deserving and should get in: Isaac Bruce, Torry Holt, Kurt Warner
    Probably won't get in, but great players: Leonard Little, Dre Bly, Ricky Proehl, Kevin Carter
    Too soon to tell: Marc Bulger

    I wonder if Warner will get in. Not sure he did enough in the long term to get in. To me it's a similar situation with Terrell Davis RB from the Broncos. He had a great few years won the SB, but did he do enough to get in?

    Re: Recent and Current Rams as Hall of Famers?

    Faulk and Bruce should definitely be in, especially with their moving up the respective leaderboards for their positions this season. Faulk is now 11th in all-time rushing yards, while Bruce is one of only 11 to reach 12,000 receiving yards.

    I seriously doubt Warner gets in. You don't get into the Hall of Fame with only three great seasons. You need longevity, and Warner doesn't have it, and probably won't get it considering he's 34-years-old right now.

    Re: Recent and Current Rams as Hall of Famers?

    warner doesnt have the career numbers to get in. if he has a productive spurt over the next three years or so and maybe wins another title (which wont happen at the helm of the Big Dead) he has a shot.

    too soon to tell on holt. great player, still needs more productive seasons (ie the same as he has already put up to get the career numbers, i agree he is well on his way).

    Pace is not a lock yet. a few more years sure, but not yet.

    Faulk is a lock.

    ramming speed to all

    Marshall Faulk And Issac Bruce For Sure, What About Aneas Williams? He Was A Serious Force At Corner And Safety When Ever Needed. Top 10 Of All Time.

    Re: Recent and Current Rams as Hall of Famers?

    I have to humbly disagree with my respected colleagues, GC and Nick, on the Warner situation, due to the Namath factor.

    Joe Namath - 50.1 % comp. - 173 TDs / 220 Ints. - 140 games - 1 SB
    Kurt Warner - 65.7 % comp. - 114 TDs / 74 Ints. - 69 games - 2 SBs - 1 SB Win

    If Joe Namath can make the HOF, Warner should make the HOF.

    I tend to agree with AvengerRam. I do see Bruce in for sure, not sure about Pace and A. Williams is a lock. Warner? No chance to me, but I would like to see it.

    Warner is far from being finished! He stills leads the NFL in career %'s after having some god awful Oline's in front of him!.....If he had a line that could block he'd rewrite the records i'm sure of it!

    Re: Recent and Current Rams as Hall of Famers?

    Locks:
    Isaac Bruce and Marshall Faulk

    Most Likely:
    Torry Holt, Orlando Pace, and Adam Timmerman

    Has a Shot if the O-Line decides to take the hit off of him so that he can play an entire season:
    Marc Bulger
    The Roman and The Prince. Playmakers until the end.
