    Top 10 Rams of All Time

    Last week I went to the chargers game and they were announcing the top 50 greatest chargers of all time.

    Since 50 players is kinda long to list in a thread, i was seeing who everyone would put in their top 10 Rams. Lets see if all the fans are on the same page and can identify the 10 greatest rams.

    Thanks Hill, excellent idea / good material for these days of famine and despair.

    For now, it'll be hard for me to dispute AV's list of 12. I agree pretty much with each one of those names he listed. If we go to 50, then, of course, we'll be able to spread the nominees in a positive Top Rams of All Time debate. ...I may try that later.

    That is a tough list to compete with, would you also consider having Dick "night train" Lane on the team?

    Solid list, if the list were expanded, I would add:

    Roman Gabriel
    Jack Reynolds
    Larry Brooks
    Dennis Harrah
    Nolan Cromwell
    Jack Snow
    Tom Mack
    Henry Ellard
    Kevin Greene (he was a Ram first)

    to name a few.

    Re: Top 10 Rams of All Time

    Can you consider Kurt Warner?

    He won the Rams a Super Bowl and is a sure fire HOF ?

    Did he not do enough here? (wondering?)

    Night Train's time with the Rams was very short (2 or 3 seasons, I believe).

    Warner would definitely be in the top 20-25.

    Unfortunately I can't go back past the eighties and have any real knowledge here, so I won't bother assembling a list...but I find it surprising that not a one of you has listed either Torry or Orlando, who are both likely HOFers (Orlando assuredly, Torry probably).

    Lawrence McCutcheon
    Deacon Jones (is his real name David?)

    Great lists... but what two are you going to knock off when Jackson and JL retire as Rams?
