  • Ron Yary

    He was sitting at my bar the other night. He is a very nice guy was out having a good time with his buddies. When he stood up I felt very small.

    One of the greatest offensive tackles of all times. Did you know that he was briefly a Ram, although he does not appear on a football card as a ram. He is one of the tricky rams to get when listing all "Rams" in the hall of fame (sort of like james lofton)

      Wow, there's a great name from the past. It seems like a lot of the "old guys" are really nice.

        In an attempt to find joy in a season that is rapidly heading down the toilet, I repeat my post from a while back. Does isaac bruce look finished to anyone? Truly an all time great ram and a guy heading for the hall of fame. I hope he never leaves us.

        Personal story about Slater
        by Guest
        Quick story about big jackie and how mean he was on the field.

        One of the guys that worked for my prior company was a defensive end in the nfl in the late 80's early 90's. When i met him, i of course asked him who the toughest offensive tackle he ever played against was.

        He had no idea i was a rams fan, and without hesitation, he told me "Jackie Slater." After a brief discussion, he told me that his first play in the nfl was opposite big jackie. It was a third and long and big jackie buried him. Next play, as they are lining up, my guy says to big jackie, "Nice block,"

        Big Jackie spits a HUGE goober right into this guys face, growls at him, something to the effect of "Shut the F---- up rookie"

        Help! I think My Neighbor is A Ram Impostor!!
        by alisad
        Does anyone know anything about Mike Burke, from 1974 season? Where is he today, recent photos...etc...A new neighbor moved in and he insists he is this person. The only thing I can match up are the birthdates. His story of dad being PGA Masters champ I have concluded is a lie....the guy is giving me the creeps and just bought the house next door. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

        My Rams HOF
        by general counsel
        In my never ending quest to organize my sports memorabilia collection, my rams football cards are broken out into four basic categories. HOF, Semi stars, owners/coaches/announcers and commons. I will be posting the HOF category and also, the semi star category for input from the group.

        I acknowledge that a lot of this categorization is personal preference as we all have our favorites. Some of my categorization is impacted by longevity as a ram. As a general rule, if the guy is in the nfl hall of fame, he will be at the minimum in the semi star category for any card on which he appears in a rams uniform. Thus, tommy mcdonald and night train lane, each of whom only played for the rams for two years, are semi stars. I think its tough to consider a guy an all time great ram (and thus a rams HOF'er) if he only played two years for the team. As a general rule, not true in every case, you need three years as a ram to be a semi star and four years to qualify as a HOF'er. Note also that active players are kept separately, thus, you wont see any of them on these lists (i still have faulk as an active ram, at least for now).

        A very much look forward to your input along with feedback on anyone you think i might be missing completely. I have not made the final run through the all time media guide yet to see if i want to add guys, i thought i would start with the most knowledgeable rams source of all, this board.

        Hall of Fame- Arnett, Bass, Benton, Larry brooks, cullen bryant, cowan, cromwell, dickerson, johnny drake, dryer, ekern, ellard, elmendorf, fears, gabriel, jerry gray, gehrke, grier, parker hall, harrah, hirsch, iman, irvin, harold jackson, deacon jones, mike jones, josephson, lundy, lyght, mccutceon, leon mcglaughlin, mack, meador, nutten, olsen, pardee, jim philllips, proehl, hacksaw reynolds, richter, isiah robertson, robustelli, saul, scibelli, doug smith, slater, snow, towler, van brocklin, warner, kenny washington, waterfield, aeneas williams, youngblood, tank younger.

        Semi Stars- flipper anderson, archuleta, tony banks (probably should be a common), baughan, bertelsen, bettis, bly, bob brown, roger brown, cappelletti, kevin carter, chapple, conwell, corral, glen davis, ellison, everett, dmarco farr, ferragamo, fletcher, doug france, sean gilbert, gary green, trent green, kevin greene, haden, hadle, hakim, james harris, drew hill, kent hill, hodgins, monte jackson, lane, lansford, lyle, matson, mcdonald, mckeever, newberry, newsome, pankey, rod perry, david ray, harry schuh, vitamin smith, pat thomas, truax, tyler, bill wade, toby wright.

        Ramming speed to all, and thanks very much for all your input and help

        Meanest ram ever
        by general counsel
        Who is the meanest ram ever to wear the horns. I mean downright nasty and ornery, not just tough, but an absolute holy terror on the field, a man that struck fear in his opponents on virtually every play.

        My nominees.

        Deacon Jones. I think he has to be the winner.
        Dennis Harrah. A natural born killer and a true beast for many many years. Doesnt get the publicity of a tom mack or even a timmerman, but truly an all time great.
        Big Jackie. A truly violent man on the field
        Hacksaw Reynolds. Another guy whose intensity was legendary.

        Your thoughts guys.
