    Offense - Kurt Warner, he got us the Ring
    Defense - Jack Youngblood, longtime beast on the DL

    I'm intrigued by this. Mind offering some reasoning behind this pick, Tex?

    Ok Nick, I guess it was just another one of my poorly worded questions that has created yet another illogical misunderstanding.
    I am not quite sure how a question, about why we need to do something, is a complaint, but I will certainly give that some more philosophical analysis. In the meantime, the intent of my question was not to try and deny anyone the right to start a thread, therefore, I was not out to prove anything. Stating my opinion does not negate my question, rather it is simply a statement as to why I think it is somewhat silly to try and name a greatest Rams player of all time. I am not sure as to why you claim that you are mystified by the intent of my question and then take the time to answer the question.
    I was not trying to be argumentative, rather it was simply a question as to why, however, I find it interesting that you feel it's ok for someone to be argumentative if they have a reason. I apologize for bothering you and for putting a damper on your or anyone elses fun. Please, everyone, carry on with your picks for the greatest offensive and defensive Rams player of all time. Again, I apologize for my remarks and for interupting your fun.

    Johnny on the spot with the info, nice job. I'm more versed in X-lore than DC stuff, but I remember the issue that Drake died in... well, the one that he got the crap beat out of him in and showed the explosion and I guess people were supposed to call in and vote as to if he should live or die.

    Nothing like an attempt to entertain ourselves and enjoy each others company in the depths of the off season. In an attempt to bring us back to the world of Ram Reality, i have only one thing to say-

    SIGN THE BIG MAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    July 15th is just around the corner guys.

    If you'd like, I could explain the progression from Alan Scott, to Hal Jordan, to Guy Gardner, to John Stewart, to Kyle Rayner.

    Help me out nick, i admit my ignorance on the other two guys, ie i only know dick grayson as the boy blunder. I had a big, big thing for catwoman growing up.

    I can however, name over a dozen different batman villians. I believe that there are a total of 23 different villans and at one time i had a list, but my brain has converted over to absorbing as much rams info as possible, resulting in something of lapse in my knowledge of sitcom trivia from the 70's.

    Which Boy Wonder though? Dick Grayson? Jason Todd? Tim Drake?

    Ferter, my point was to use your logic to show the illogic of what you were saying.

    You asked why we need to do this, thus I asked why you needed to post your complaint. By saying you have a right to post your opinion and complaint, you yourself proved that we also have a right to make these threads, therefore making the intent of your original question a mystery to me. "I know it's the offseason and all but why do we need to do this?" The real question should be why not? Because your opinion negates the question entirely? It's Rams related and obviously some people want to weight in on it. So why not discuss it?

    You can say that it's your opinion that one Rams player can't be singled out. That's fine. What bothers me is when you come in here and ask why make a thread like this. It's made because (1) we can and (2) we want to discuss it. It seems as if you were just trying to be argumentative for no reason at all. Where's the fun in that?

    Good question on the utility belt. If batman adds robin and harrah adds Big Jackie, I like our guys' chances. For a three on three, batman and robin can add Aunt Harriet and Harrah and Big Jackie can add Georgia.

    Does Batman get to use his utility belt? Is Harrah allowed to hold?

    We need some rules laid down before we decide this one!

    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.

    ramming speed to all

    If you could meet on current and past Ram who would that be?
    by macrammer
    oJust wondering who you would like to meet

    For me.....current Ram is Danny Amendola
    Past Ram is a bit tougher choice.....so many great Rams of the past....but if I had to choose just one I would pick Jack Younblood with Jackie Slater a close second.....

    Who is your favorite all_time ram?
    by NJ Ramsfan1
    The mood hit me to go outside the box for this one, since we all hope these recent developments with Spagnuolo will bring us back to glory.It got me to thinking about why I became a Rams fan- and the great teams and players they've had over the years. I will give you my top two- which is AWFULLY difficult, since there are so many great Rams I've rooted for since I was a little kid.

    #2 is Jack Youngblood- A great, great, player whose toughness, production and leadership is legendary. That he had to wait 17 years to get into the Hall of Fame is an absolute joke. Went to at least 8 pro bowls and was the 1975 NFC defensive player of the year. Unofficially had 150.5 career sacks- an unbelievable total considering he was undersized even by yesterday's standards. Learned from the great Deacon Jones and anchored a line that was part of a Rams team in the 70's that led the DECADE in total defense. And of course playing 1 1/2 games (one of which was Super Bowl XIV) on a broken leg was the stuff from which legends are made. A class guy on and off the field, he was the guy who made me a Rams fan as a 5 year old boy.

    #1 is Nolan Cromwell- My childhood idol. I played safety, special teams and held for placekicks during my high school football days and wore his number (#21) in every sport I ever played and wore it during my college baseball career and in semi-pro leagues thereafter. A stellar athlete who was one of the top two or three safeties of the 80's and a guy I don't feel gets his due today as an all-time great Ram (management even disrespected him by giving Lawrence Phillips his number). I had the good fortune of teaching with a guy who knew Nolan personally- and I got his jersey I wore as a kid signed by him along with a personal letter. Both are framed in my den.

    Who are your favorite Rams?
