  • 10 Years of the Rams in St. Louis

    By Jim Thomas
    Of the Post-Dispatch
    10/31/2004
    The biggest upset in St. Louis pro football history is, was, and will always be prying away the Rams from southern California. This season marks the franchise's 10th in St. Louis. Periodically throughout the 2004 campaign, including every Sunday in the Rams Report, the Post-Dispatch looks at the first 10 years of "St. Louis" Rams football.

    St. Louis Rams 10 Most Memorable Games

    1.) The Tackle Super Bowl XXXIV, Jan. 30, 2000, the Georgia Dome
    Rams 23, Titans 16

    - Kurt Warner's 73-yard TD pass to Isaac Bruce snapped a 16- 16 tie. But this dream season wasn't complete until Mike Jones stopped Kevin Dyson on the 1, on the final play of one of the most memorable Super Bowls ever.

    - "It proves we did the right thing in going to St. Louis. This trophy belongs to our coach, our team, and our fans in St. Louis." - Georgia Frontiere, accepting the Lombardi Trophy from Paul Tagliabue.


    2.) The Upset Super Bowl XXXVI, Feb. 3, 2002, the Louisiana Superdome
    Patriots 20, Rams 17

    - Sluggish early, the Rams rallied from a 17-3 deficit in the fourth quarter. The first overtime in Super Bowl history appeared imminent. But no. Adam Vinatieri's 48-yard field goal ended the game. So much for that dynasty.

    - "The season's a waste. I don't care what anybody says. Your goal is to win the Super Bowl. You don't come out and play for second place." - DE Grant Wistrom.


    3.) A Catch for the Ages NFC Championship, Jan. 23, 2000, the Trans World Dome
    Rams 11, Buccaneers 6

    - In a matchup of the league's best defense against the league's top offense, it looked like the day belonged to defense and Tampa Bay. Until, that is, Ricky Proehl's 30- yard TD catch decided this ultra-intense struggle.

    - "The magnitude of the game, the situation. No question. . .that's the catch I'll remember forever." - Proehl.


    4.) Finally, Football Sept. 3, 1995, Lambeau Field
    Rams 17, Green Bay 14

    - In their first game as the "St. Louis" Rams, Rich Brooks' squad registered a big upset on one of the NFL's most storied playgrounds. Bruce blocked a punt late in the first quarter, then caught a TD pass on the very next play.

    - "We got one for the 'Arch.' St. Louis can smile a little harder today." - DT D'Marco Farr.


    5.) Martz Madness NFC Divisional Playoff, Jan. 10, 2004, the Edward Jones Dome
    Panthers 29, Rams 23, (double overtime)

    - The Rams had the ball at the Carolina 38, down by 3 at the 2-minute warning. But to the astonishment of nearly everyone, "Mad Mike" went conservative, running only three more plays to send this epic game into OT.

    - "Yeah, I was surprised we didn't take a shot at the end zone." - WR Torry Holt.


    6.) Finally, Playoff Football NFC Divisional Playoff, Jan. 16, 2000, the Trans World Dome
    Rams 49, Vikings 37

    - Call it scorched-earth football. Starting with Tony Horne's 95-yard kickoff return, the Rams scored 35 straight points at the start of the second half, winning the 1st home playoff game in St. Louis pro football history.

    - "Well, so much for not having any playoff experience." - Dick Vermeil.


    7.) The Bubble Bursts Oct. 22, 1995, Busch Stadium
    ***** 44, Rams 10

    - Entering the game, the Rams were 5-1 and the talk of the league. But in the last pro football game at Busch, 'Niners linebacker Ken Norton Jr. punched the goal posts and San Francisco punched out the Rams.

    - "Same old sorry (bleep) Rams." - San Francisco DT Dana Stubblefield.


    8.) The King is Dead Oct. 10, 1999, the Trans World Dome
    Rams 42, ***** 20

    - Same Old Rams no more! Thanks to four TD catches by Bruce, the Rams ended their 17-game losing streak to rival San Francisco, signaling a changing of the guard in the NFC West.

    - "You're going all the way, baby." - Bill Walsh, to Vermeil after the game.


    9.) The Track Meet Sept. 4, 2000, the Trans World Dome
    Rams 41, Broncos 36

    - It was wild. It was electric. It was the Greatest Show on Turf at its apex. The defending Super Bowl champs scored 3 TDs of 70 yards-plus on Monday Night football, winning Martz's head-coaching debut.

    - "What time is it - about 2 o'clock? We almost blew that thing." - Martz.


    10.) Shredded Cheese NFC Divisional Playoff, Jan. 20, 2002, the Dome at America's Center
    Rams 45, Packers 17

    - Green Bay and the mighty Brett Favre learned the hard way that St. Louis had playmakers on both sides of the ball. Favre threw six interceptions, three of which were returned for TDs in the Packers worst-ever playoff loss.

    - "In all my years of coaching, I don't know if I've ever seen a defensive performance like that by any team. It's truly remarkable." - Martz.

    St. Louis Rams 10th Anniversary Team

    Ten years, one world championship, three NFC West division titles, countless memories.
    The number of players that have contributed to making the St. Louis Rams is well in to the hundreds, but the players that follow are, perhaps, the most responsible for bringing the Rams from the bottom of the barrel to the top of the heap. With the 10th season in St. Louis coming to an end, these are the men who were the best of the best, as voted on by the fans.

    QUARTERBACK
    Kurt Warner

    This position was a slam-dunk choice for fans. By now, everyone knows Warner’s story. From grocery bagger to MVP, Warner’s rise was, perhaps, the most meteoric of any athlete in any sport ever.
    His run was rather short-lived, starting just three full seasons in St. Louis, but what a three seasons they were. From 1999-2001, Warner put together what was one of, if not the most prolific statistical runs any quarterback has ever posted. In that three-year span, Warner threw for 12, 612 yards and 98 touchdowns, while missing five game with an injury.

    As the engineer of the “Greatest Show on Turf”, Warner led the aerial attack, lighting up the sky with perfect spiral after perfect spiral. At his best, Warner had the innate ability to thread the needle in traffic and throw a perfectly placed deep ball with equal aplomb. Unfortunately, injuries tainted Warner’s fast track to the Hall of Fame, but he will always be loved in St. Louis for winning Super Bowl XXXIV, where he claimed Super Bowl MVP honors and set the record for most passing yards in the game with 414 passing yards. He won the league’s MVP award that season and claimed it again in 2001, when he led the Rams back to the Super Bowl.

    RUNNING BACK
    Marshall Faulk

    If Warner was the conductor of the Greatest Show on Turf, then Faulk was the engine that made it go. Faulk was traded to the Rams before the 1999 season at the small cost of second and fifth-round draft choices. Without question, that deal will go down in the annals of Rams’ football as probably the biggest steal of a transaction...

    No area team had as many ups and downs during the decade as the St. Louis Rams:

    BEST SEASON OPENER, Sept. 4, 2000

    The Gateway City hadn’t played host to Monday Night Football for 14 seasons, or since Bill Bidwill and the Big Red called St. Louis home. But with Commissioner Paul Tagliabue on hand, the defending Super Bowl-champion Rams won a 41-36 track meet over Denver. The Rams scored three TDs of 72 yards or longer. One of them, an 80-yard catch and run by Az-Zahir Hakim, became a signature play of the Greatest Show on Turf. Hakim received an escort down the sidelines by Torry Holt, with the two laughing and joking with each other along the way. It looked like so much fun.

    BIGGEST VICTORY, Jan. 30, 2000

    Do we even need to think about this one? One Super Bowl after another had been b-o-r-i-n-g in recent years, until Tennessee and St. Louis hooked up in Super Bowl XXXIV in Atlanta. This game had everything. Contrasting styles. Big plays. Big comebacks. And one huge momentum swing. In the end, Rams linebacker Mike Jones brought down Titans wide receiver Kevin Dyson just short of the goal line preserving a 23-16 victory. The Lombardi Trophy belonged to St. Louis. Long live The Tackle.

    WORST LOSS, Feb. 3, 2002

    Making their second Super Bowl appearance in three seasons, the heavily favored Rams arrived in New Orleans ready to assert themselves as a dynasty in the making. Instead, the upstart Patriots made it a red, white, and blue Super Bowl less than five months after the 9-11 tragedy. New England jumped to a 17-3 lead before a furious St. Louis rally tied the game 17-17. Just when it looked like the first overtime game in Super Bowl history was upon us, unheralded quarterback Tom Brady led the Pats on a frantic last-second drive, culminating in Adam Vinatieri’s 48-yard field goal as time expired.

    BEST CATCH, Jan. 23, 2000

    Tampa Bay’s fast and fierce defense had the Rams on their heels. An intense, physical NFC title game was going the Buccaneers’ way. With the fourth quarter slipping away and the Trans World Dome crowd quiet and nervous, Tampa Bay held a 6-5 lead. Then, Kurt Warner launched a 30-yard pass to Ricky Proehl for one of the most amazing TD’s in playoff history. Proehl had Bucs defender Brian Kelly draped all over him, but managed to get his feet down in bounds with the ball pinned to his side. Afterwards, some called it “The Catch for the Ages.” For the first time, a St. Louis NFL team was headed to the Super Bowl as a result of this 11-6 victory.

    The 2000s St. Louis Rams "The Greatest Show on Turf"
    by LA Rammer
    The 1999 and early 2000 Rams were built for speed. Lots of speed. By playing their home games on artificial turf, the Rams gained a huge home field advantage as other teams were not able to compete with their speed on all player for player matchups. The other thing that made them difficult to beat was the incredible tempo with which they played. The result was an explosive and highly effective offensive performance that was unmatched in NFL record books, which culminated in a Super Bowl victory in 1999. In the early 2000 season, the media started calling them "The Greatest Show on Turf" an obvious play on the Ringling Brothers and Barnum and Bailey Circus motto of "The Greatest Show on Earth." Only nine teams have scored over 500 points in a season, three of those teams were Rams teams from this era. The offensive team consisted of Kurt Warner, Marshal Faulk, Az Hakim, Torry Holt, Isaac Bruce, and Ricky Proehl. In a four game stretch of the 2000 season, the Rams scored more points than any team in NFL history by scoring 184 points, 46 points per game on average. Pictured above: Torry Holt and Marshall Fault celebrate another touchdown and Kurt Warner in a rare run.

    Pats offense, the best ever? Not yet....

    The Greatest Show on Turf
    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    Jump to: navigation, search
    The Greatest Show on Turf was the nickname for the offense fielded by the St. Louis Rams offense during 1999, 2000, and 2001 NFL seasons. The offense employed was an explosive passing attack — designed by offensive coordinator Mike Martz and based upon the traditional Coryell offensive system first developed by NFL coach Don Coryell. The Rams set a new NFL record for total offensive yards in 2000, with 7,335. 5,492 of those were passing yards, also a new NFL team record.

    The Greatest Show On Turf was anchored by running back Marshall Faulk, NFL Offensive Player of the Year for three consecutive years from 1999 through 2001, quarterback Kurt Warner, 2-time NFL MVP, the receiving duo of Isaac Bruce and Torry Holt, as well as Az-Zahir Hakim and veteran Ricky Proehl. Together they became the only team in NFL history to score 500+ points in 3 consecutive seasons. No other team has ever done it two seasons in a row. Quarterback Kurt Warner and running back Marshall Faulk finished first and second in MVP voting each of the three years, also an achievement unmatched by any offense in NFL history.

    The Rams went 13-3, 10-6, and 14-2 in those three seasons, respectively, and reached the playoffs every year. In 1999, the team reached Super Bowl XXXIV and defeated the Tennessee Titans to claim the first franchise championship in almost half a century. The Rams fell early in the 2000 playoffs, but returned the next year to reach Super Bowl XXXVI, where they ultimately fell to the New England Patriots.

    Though much less heralded, the St. Louis defense during those three seasons was critical to the overall team performance. In 2000, when the Rams scrambled just to reach the playoffs, the defense was ranked among the NFL's worst. In 1999 and 2001, when the Rams reached the Super Bowl, the defense statistically ranked among the NFL's best - and ironically enough, it was a defensive stop known as "The Tackle" by Rams linebacker Mike Jones that gave the Greatest Show on Turf its championship.
