    Rams History

    For some of our younger Rams fans who might not know here are some facts about our Rams or for some of the newer fans who might not have known about >>

    Rams History :

    Back in 1934, the St. Louis Gunners joined the NFL by purchasing the defunct Cincinnati Reds NFL team. The Reds had lost their first 8 games before they were suspended from the league for defaulting on payments. The St. Louis Gunners, coached by Charles "Chile" Walsh, went 1-2 in their remaining 3 games. Then the Gunners, too, were dropped when they went bankrupt...
    In 1937, the Cleveland Rams were founded by Homer Marshman, a Cleveland attorney. The NFL placed the Cleveland Rams into the NFL Western Division to replace the St. Louis Gunners. Dan Reeves, the son of a New York grocer, purchased the Rams in 1941. Chile Walsh was hired in 1942 as an assistant coach, and was promoted to general manager in 1944. He offered a finders fee of $100 to anyone recommending a player who made the team. Chile hired his brother, Adam, (adam was very good friends with my Uncle's) as head coach in 1945, whereupon they promptly won the NFL championship, going 9-1-0 on the season. Rookie QB Bob Waterfield passed for 1,609 yards an 14 TDs. Top receiver was Jim Benton, with 1,067 yards and 8 TDs. The title game was played on Dec. 15, 1945, in Cleveland. The Rams defeated the Washington Redskins 15-14 in a showdown pitting the Rams rookie QB Bob Waterfield against the Redskins veteran QB Sammy Baugh...

    On January 11, 1946, Reeves asked permission to move the team to Los Angeles, California. Many owners were concerned about the added cost of cross-country travel expenses. Beginning a fine tradition, Reeves offered to pay to the owners an additional $5,000.00 over the existing guarantee when their team played the Rams on the West Coast. The deal was approved, and the Rams became the first NFL team to move West. This began a trend that would spill over to other professional sports, and continue for decades...

    The Rams post a record of 6-4-1 in their first season in Los Angeles, 1947...

    In 1948, the Rams became the first team in the NFL to have a team emblem on their helmets when halfback Fred Gehrke painted horns on the helmets...

    In 1949, the Rams win their first division title in Los Angeles. QB Bob Waterfield and Rookie QB Norm Van Brocklin led the team to an 8-2-2 record. Elroy "Crazy Legs" Hirsch caught 22 passes as the league's first flanker. Tom Fears had 77 receptions for 1,013 yards. In spite of this, the Philadelphia Eagles (11-1-0) held the Rams to only 10 completions for 98 yards, and allowed only 21 yards rushing to defeat the Rams 14-0 in the NFL Championship Game...

    The Rams became the first NFL team to have all their games - both home and away - televised in 1950...

    In 1951, the Rams reversed their television broadcast policy and televised

    Sung to the tune of...

    "Happy days are here again", (for those who are so inclined);)

    Rams are turning things around at last
    Shaw and Ziggy’s crap is in the past
    Spag's is here to stay, the die is cast
    Rams are back on track again

    Billy’s got his eyes upon the draft
    Showing everyone he’s honed his craft
    In our drafts before, the pundits laughed
    Rams are coming back again

    Bulger’s finally smiling just a bit
    His new center is a perfect fit
    Now at last he won’t get hit and hit
    Rams are going to win again

    Ron Bartell has got his corner spot
    And Atogwe’s going to still be hot
    Hill and Butler both will get their shot
    Rams are on the attack again

    D-Line’s finally got a touch of gray
    Looks like they may finally have their day
    Anyway, it’s clear they’re here to play
    Rams may get more sacks again

    Steven Jackson’s glad he’s now a Dad
    Contract’s done, so he’s no longer mad
    Gonna run like hell, and catch a tad
    Rams got running backs again

    Our receivers seem to lack some age
    Maybe so, but wait ‘til they engage
    Other team’s DBs, they will upstage
    Rams'll scare some D's again

    As a team, this all will take some time
    Lot of work ahead, an uphill climb
    And I just ran out of things that rhyme
    Rams are fun to watch again

    So OK, I hope this finds you well
    We’ll no longer hear the tolling bell
    Looks like character will finally tell
    Rams'll kick some 'A' again
