Our All-Time Top 50 Los Angeles Rams are now up!

Yes, we know that this is taking a while!

As many of you know, we here at Notinhalloffame.com are slowly generating the 50 of each major North American sports team.  We have a new one to unveil today, that of the Los Angeles Rams. 

The Rams were formed in Cleveland in 1936 and would win the NFL Championship in 1945.  In typical of the luck that Cleveland has, the Rams relocated to Los Angeles and won their second championship in 1951. Los Angeles would be a popular team but as owners do, they moved seeking a better stadium deal, which they found in St. Louis in 1994.  It was there where they won Super Bowl XXXIV with their “Greatest Show on Turf” team. St. Louis would again be left without a team as Los Angeles wooed them back in 2016.  

As for all of our top 50 players in football we look at the following: 

  1. Advanced Statistics.
  1. Traditional statistics and how they finished in the NFL.
  1. Playoff accomplishments.
  1. Their overall impact on the team and other intangibles not reflected in a stat sheet.

Remember, this is ONLY based on what a player does on that particular team and not what he accomplished elsewhere and also note that we have placed an increased importance on the first two categories.

This list is updated up until the end of the 2018 Season.

The complete list can be found herebut as always we announce our top five in this article.  They are:

  1. Merlin Olsen
  1. Deacon Jones
  1. Jack Youngblood
  1. Orlando Pace
  1. Marshall Faulk

We will continue our adjustments on our existing lists and will continue developing our new lists.  

As always we thank you for your support.
