    Some Things You May Not Know...

    1. The Rams are two wins shy of winning 500 games in the NFL. There are 5 teams who have achieved that mark:

    Chicago Bears (1922) - 672
    Green Bay Packers (1922) - 629
    NY Giants (1925)- 600
    Washington Redskins (Boston Braves) (1932)- 522
    Pittsburgh Steelers (1933) - 502

    The Rams entered the NFL in 1937.

    2. Since the mid-sixties, there have only been 5 pairs of receivers that have played together for 9, or more, seasons. Bruce and Holt have more receptions (1334) and more receiving yards (19975) for the past 9 years. This beats:

    PIT: Stallworth-Swann
    DEN: Rod Smith - Mccaffery
    MIA: Clayton-Duper
    ***: Rice-Tayler

    3. Jeff Wilkins is the highest scorer in Rams history. Wilkins holds a streak of making 351 consecutive XPs, 2nd highest in NFL history. He is behind Jason Elam of Denver who has 371 XPs in a row.

    There are two Rams who hail from Canada - Romberg and Otogwe. There are only 11 Canadians who play in the NFL.

    Re: Some Things You May Not Know...

    Could this be 500 regular season wins maybe? 2004 being 500 total wins?

    Mike Schad, OG. From Trenton, Canada / Queen's University. Played with the Rams in 1988. // BTW, he's only 44. Get him on the phone!

    Maybe if we keep these kinds of threads going for a few days we won't feel so down about current records and state-of-affairs generated from Rams Park.

    I think we are also very close to most all time playoff appearances. I think in 2004 we were behind the Giants by 1 (I don't think they went by individual game, but total appearances, one a year max I think).

    Re: Some Things You May Not Know...

    Bruce and Holt are the best team of receivers in the NFL in my opinion. The stats show it to, and the Rams need to get them 2 games won, they pretty much have to win their next 9 games if they want a shot at the playoffs.
