    Why these Rams will never be the GSOT

    Which players would you prefer in their "Prime"?

    Warner or Bulger
    Faulk or Jackson
    Proel or Looker/McDonald
    Hodgins or Hedgecock
    Conwell or Malumanulma
    Fletcher or Pisa/Coakley
    Wistrom or Hargrove/Green

    It's pretty apparent that our talent has fallen significantly, and I didn't even list DB's

    SOG,

    I see your point but you've made at least one miscomparison.

    it should be Fletcher or Claiborne

    Jones/?(I forget the other OLB) and Pisa/Coakley

    and if you're going to do WR then
    Az Hakim vs Curtis

    Holt rookie and Bruce prime vs. Holt prime and Bruce past prime

    Also, in several situations you're comparing prime to those who have not reached prime..Wistrom vs. Hargrove/Green; and Hodgins vs. Hedgecock.

    But yes the talent is down no question



    It should be

    True...you'll never be able to compare straight across..but I'd still take that old squad...

    SOG,

    We proudly held that title during those years and other teams hated us for it. It came with notoriety. Now, we are criticized for not getting back to that era.

    What did they call the L.A.Rams during their heyday? What did they call the Whiners during theirs? Broncos? Packers? Now that the Patriot Games seem to been dwindling, what did they call their act? I don't seem to recall any such title (I might be ignorant) given to any other teams that has caused such self-mockery than The Greatest Show On Turf of yesteryear. Rams fans loved it then and are jealous that we don't have it now, but we shouldn't be our own worst enemy by comparing then and now.

    Situations change and time moves on. I believe that we are going in a positive direction and will resume our stature in the winning circle. We can still pull this year out of the fire in a different fashion than the GSOT. I say leave that trophy on the mantle and collect others.

    On Three, Break!!!
