  • Most iconic moment in Rams History

    I was watching ESPN and they were asking all their guys what they thought the most iconic moment was in their respective sport. That gave me the idea of what everybody thought the most iconic moment was in Rams history. There have definitely been some good, and some bad ones. What does everybody think?

      Re: Most iconic moment in Rams History

      I would say mine is Ricky P's catch vs Tampa. I thought it was very symbolic of the season. A person who nobody heard of, or expected, achieved greatness in the biggest moment. What a time for the 1st TD catch of the season!

        I agree with the Tackle & Proehl's TD catch. Would like to add the first offensive play against the Vikings in game one of our playoff run to the Superbowl was a long TD pass to Bruuuuuuce!

          Pretty hard to argue with "The Tackle" being the most iconic moment in Rams history. For me, Warner to Bruce for the winning TD in SB 34 is right up there. Watching that play still gives me chills.

            Just some of my favorites:

            1) Mike Jone's Tackle

            2) Warner to Bruce TD

            3) Ricky Proehl Catch in the NFC Championship in '99

            4) The Rams moving from LA to STL

            5) Selecting Sam Bradford

              Kurt Warner holding the first Vince Lombardi Trophey the RAMS ever won high in the air. To me, this one moment signified that we had really done it.

                Dont forget the following (good and bad)

                The 73 yard bomb from van brocklin to fears to win the 1951 title
                The bomb to stallworth Just over rod perry (I believe) that cost the rams sb 14
                VIttatarris field goal at the end of sb 36
                The field at the end of the 1950 title game that cost us the title
                (I need more research to determine the one critical play in the 1945 title game (our first championship)
                The Trent Green injury
                The marshall faulk trade (not a play, but an iconic moment in rams history for sure, because without it, we dont win the title)

                ramming speed to all

                  All of the above are excellent choices. I'll probably settle with 'The Tackle' which sealed our 1st SB ever. :ram:

                    Yes Definetly the Trent Green injury. With out it Trent Green is our quarterback. Only the fates and God know if we win the superbowl with him as our quarterback!!!!!!


                    Cudoes on the bomb from Terry Bradshaw to Stallworth just over Rod Perry (I believe) that cost the rams SB 14. I watched that game and still feal we should have won. Wendle Tyler played his heart out that game comeing back in time and again after being knocked out on the goal line early.

                      I'll go with one for my fellow graybeards & a different moment from the GSOT era.

                      Beating The Cowboys in the playoffs on the way to the SB after the '79 season.If I remember it right, they had spanked a better Rams team in the playoffs the previous year, again during that regular season, & a couple of other playoff games during the first flush of my Ramhood & I hated them as only a teenager can hate....Total underdogs & lots of uncertainty about the franchise; Carroll had died that spring. Was Malavasi ruining the team that he, Knox & Klosterman had built?....then Billy freakin' Waddy came free over the middle & scored an improbable TD with about two mins left & the D stymied Staubach to get the win....so sweet.... I can't say losing the SB to The Steelers didn't hurt but it was kinda like when my best friend, Bobby, gave me a fat lip for making out with his sister at his birthday party.

                      The Proehl catch & and Jones tackle were certainly great historical moments but I remember relief more than joy.Perhaps even more like satisfaction than relief, as if to say "that's how it's supposed to have gone". By then, there was a feeling of destiny about that team.The Green injury & Warner explosion only reinforced that feeling. I expected them to win. What sticks out as a great emotional GSOT watershed for me was the first win over The Whiners that season. I may be mixing things up but wasn't that the game where Bruce was caught on camera, weeping? Seems to me that's when I felt a real weight lifted, like a curse had been broken.

                        Yes....that was the Game. Bruce started crying on the sideline after a big catch for a touchdown. It was the first moment we knew we had that game won.

                          1. Winning the Superbowl and every millisecond image that went with it during the game..

                          2. Prior to the winning TD snap V's Tampa, hearing John Madden say words to the effect of "..It's about that time in the game when someone's gotta step up and make a play that sends their team to the Superbowl.." 4 seconds later Warner and Ricky 'Who?' Proehl did just that..

                          3. Trent Green writhing around in agony on the floor in the pre-season game after the Harrison hit.. We all know what that led to..

                          Awesome memories...

                              I would say my top 3 are:

                              1. Alex Barron trying hard.
                              2. Jimmy Kennedy trying hard.
                              3. Richie Incognito showing self-control.



                              Hmm? What's that?

                              Oh, you said most iConic moment.......I thought you said most iRonic moment.
                              The more things change, the more they stay the same.

                                Onward and Upward?
                                by renrawtruk
                                For me this game is somewhat of a fork in the road for Jeff Fisher. He has built up the team he wants and is having increasing success playing his style of football since the emergence of Todd Gurley to go along with a top 5 defense.

                                But I have to admit the Vikings game from last year was the epitome of the issues I have with Jeff Fisher. Some benefit of the doubt for losing Sam Bradford prior to that game, but with how little we ask of a QB, I don't think the results were going to be any different.

                                We were manhandled 34-6.
                                The team was not prepared.
                                We were seriously outcoached.
                                The Vikings used Cordarrelle Patterson exactly how we were supposed to use Tavon Austin. It took us 9 weeks later in the season to even just copy a play they used that killed us, which we now use regularly. (quick hand off to Tavon end around).
                                We only scored 6 total points.
                                You have the entire off season to prepare for the first game of the season, and they came out flat.

                                So, having said that...

                                We were much better prepared this year heading into the first game vs. Seahawks and had a solid game plan. We have a new offensive coordinator, although the passing game is almost non-existent.

                                For as much hype as this team is getting as of late, making the playoffs will almost certainly require beating the Vikings. So until we do that, the hype is premature. And winning the division will almost certainly require beating the Cards again. Additionally, making the playoffs will likely require us to go 6-3 in the last 9 games - possibly 5-4 if we hold the tiebreakers, again a must win this week.

                                So here is the deal... Any reverting back to the team that only scores 6 points, that is not prepared, that shoots itself in the foot, is outcoached, or simply out-dated (see game vs. Washington) will find us in a position where Fisher will again be facing a losing season and his style of play will be brought into question.

                                If I had to guess, at some point, we will revert back and will not have the success this year we are hoping for because Fisher will double down on "Gurleyball", instead of opening up the offense. With continued success from Gurley, we could potentially move up to 18th-20th or so on offense, but that will not be enough. Teams will start to realize "stop Gurley and Tavon and you beat the Rams" and will start to better game plan us.

                                I hope I'm wrong and we continue to win doing it Fisher's way, but I think the only way expectations are met is if the passing game is opened up enough to resemble an NFL offense, but I don't believe he has any intention of doing that.

                                He likes to talk a lot about #30. He is very happy right now.

                                If you had only had one play to define your favorite Ram Players, what would it be? Here's a few of mine.Jack Youngblood, the 1975 playoff game against the Cardinals where 'blood' intercepted a Jim Hart pass and ran it back for a TD. Jackie Slater, in the 1983 game against the Jets. Jackie goes after Mark Gasteneau when he tried to do his sack dance. Merlin Olsen, in the 1973 regular season game against Dallas. Merlin met Walt Garrison on the one and stood him up to save a 37-31 win. Fred Dryer, getting his 2nd safety (an NFL record) in a 1973 game against GB. Pat Haden, hitting Harold Jackson for a 57 yard winning TD against Oakland in 1977. Dave Elmendorf and Bill Simpson meeting Billy Joe Dupree and stopping him from making a first down saving a hard fought win in a 1976 playoff game against Dallas. Hacksaw Reynolds crawling 5 yards for the winning td against Denver in a 1979 thurs. night game. Bob Lee comes in and throws the winning TD to Ron Smith in a 1979 game against frisco. Nolan Cromwell on a fake FG runs it in for the win against Minnesota in a 1979 game. What's yours?

                                The Punt return for a TD was also allowed to happen after holding not being called by the officials.

                                So far the RAMs are up 12-0, with the zebras ahead with 14.

                                Okay..

                                I read an artIcle today that said in the Kevin Smith td go-ahead td, there was an illegal lineman 2 yards down the line of scrimmage. What would that have meant for the rams, if that was actually called? Would there have been a 10 second runoff which would have forced the lions to kick a fg?

                                Looking at the replay it seems the refs did miss it, if its an actual rule. Can someone clear the truth behind this for me? Was the article coming out of left field or completely true. If so what would have been the consequences of the penalty?
