    well theres Fletch..i know he`s much loved by many but when the media bring up the superbowl winning season they rarely mention .com

    also Ray Agnew is worth a mention...Billy Jenkins jnr also...he stepped in for Toby Wright who had departed the scene and for that season we didnt miss Toby the Tornado.

    Roland Williams had a nice season that year...

    D`marco Farr as mentioned played a key role.

    Fletch would get my vote tho as just for being the best linebacker weve had in the last 20 years and not getting as much credit than he should..(in the media anyway..)

    I respectfully disagree. Non-Ram fans would never remember Ricky Proehl and his contributions. Furthermore, I have the "official " Super Bowl art print that the NFL puts out every year and Proehl isn't even on it. Hakim is. Hell, even Robert Holcomb is there

    All I'm saying is Ricky was very underrated and, IMO, never got the respect or props he deserved.

    Well... bully for you! You can start a Ricky Proehl Fan Club if you'd like, but this is my thread, and I say he's received enough recognition (for the catch in the NFC Championship game alone) to take him out of the running.

    Maybe you should go to McDonalds and order some shrimp pad thai. When they say, "sorry, we don't serve that," you can respond with "I respectfully disagree." Let me know how that works out.

    I went with Horne because he put the Rams in great field position all year however, I also remember Billy Jenkins laying some big hits on people that year and also Dre Bly had a big year that year also in the secondary.

    I went with Tony Horne because he consistently put our offense in good field position. His electric returns also provided big momentum swings in games, getting the fans and players into it.

    Ray Agnew was a close second. He was a great leader in the locker room and run-stuffer in the middle of the D.

    That was my first and easy selection too. Great summary as well.

    Re: Who was the real "unsung hero" of the 1999 Championship team?

    Here's "unsung" for you. The center Guinta (I'm not even sure that's his name). He was the straw that stirred the drink on an offensive line who should be given all the credit.

    Second would be Orlando Pace' who if not a rookie, then was not too far removed.

    My third would be Jim Hanifan. The coaches coach who got these guys to play proud.
    "The horror"

    I voted for Timmerman. He brought a winning attitude and a warriors mentality with him from Green Bay, Tony Horne deserves consideration as well for some big plays and great field position but the addition of Timmerman as stated by the OP really solidified the Offensive Line.

    Jeez, there's no need to shout. I may be too senile to read the fine print but I'm not deaf. LOL

    How 'bout Hodgins? I meant to offer him above but could only remember that his nickname was "Meat", if I remember correctly. Did yeoman work plowing the road for Marshall & keeping Kurt clean.

    Mike Gruttadauria is the name of the center you are looking for.

    Peter Giunta was our Defensive Coordinator.

    Ahh the good old days.


    Oh and I voted for Horne for the same reason as Tx and EDM did.

    Robert Holcombe was the starting FB that year, but Hodgins was a demon on special teams (particularly kickoff coverage). I remember Madden highlighting him on those kickoffs as Hodgins went lights-out, busting the blocking wedges.

    Later on as a starter in the GSOT, Hodgins was definitely an unsung hero. The guy was a beast as a lead blocker.

    I'm going to vote for the "Bandwagon fans" that joined in near the end of he season. Mainly because I couldn't think of a dumber answer.
