  • Just For Fun

    With our week off this week, I challenged myself with the following:

    Write down the numbers 1-99, and then next to each number, write down as many Rams players as you can think of (without looking at any reference material - rely ONLY on your memory) who wore that number.

    I give myself 1 point for active roster players, 2 points if they played in the previous decade, 3 points if they played in the decade before that, etc., etc., etc. But heck, that's just me!

    Do it just for fun. By the way, can anyone think of a Ram who wore #2? I can't. That is the ONLY number for which I can't recall a player.

    Have fun with it!

    Oh, jeez... I won't be good with that, I'm a youngster. I'll start studying. :nerd:



    • #3

      No 2 = John Drake RB from Purdue, played 1937 to 1941 (also wore the number 14)

      No 2 = Mike Horan Punter 1997 to 1999

      No 2 = Patt Maurice End, 1939 to 1942

      Keeping the Rams Nation Talking

        Johnny Drake #2

        I read somewhere that Johnny Drake, a fullback, was the Cleveland Rams first ever No1 draft pick in the NFL. (Although he was selected by the NFL as were all the Rams draft choices that year). Think he signed for $275 a game and won Rookie of the Year.

          Amazing Rookies
          by smitheRAM
          With a lot of talk on this site about how we will improve this year(It's kind of a given since we cann't get worse. I hope.). People state that Avery will burn up the field and Long will have 8 or more sacks. My questions are these. Who was our last great rookie and who was your favorite rookie?

          Should The NFL Change It's Player Number System?
          by r8rh8rmike
          There has been a lot of discussion lately about Reggie Bush wanting to keep his college number 5, which is not allowed for running back's in the NFL. Edgerrin James petitioned the NFL to wear number 5, but was denied. Charles Woodson is apparently trying to get permission to wear number 2, and Keyshawn Johnson was given permission to wear number 19 as a reciever. Seems like the NFL has a conflicted history and probably has to seriously address the issue.

          Should the system be changed?

          ROTD: The 50s
          by AvengerRam_old
          The loss of Isaac Bruce has made me feel sentimental about the Rams' past, so I thought I'd start a series of polls to have the Clan elect the "Ram of the Decade" for each decade starting with the 1950s (also, its a good way to pass the time during the offseason.

          The rules are as follows: to be eligible, a player must have been with the Rams for either (1) five or more seasons within the decade, or (2) six or more seasons total, and at least four seasons within the decade. I'll narrow each decade down to five nominees.

          So, who is the Ram of the 50s (1950-1959)?

          remember when
          by RamWraith
          Here is one for your memory. Do you all remember when the highlight to the season/off season was when the Rams Craig "Ironhead" Heyward did a Zest commercial!?

          My, my times have changed. We went though such a drought of even having a sniff at the playoffs.

          Do you remember any thing from that era that was so insignificant, but yet so exciting because we had nothing else to cheer about.
