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 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.

How do the Rams and Patriots look after their first games?

Anyone who is interested in NFL betting online or simply watching football for fun will be happy that the new season is underway. Summer can seem a long time as a football fan, and all supporters will be glad that the action has kicked off once more. Two sets of fans who will be especially looking forward to how this campaign pans out are those who follow the New England Patriots and Los Angeles Rams.

24. Maxie Baughan

If you have an eleven-year professional football career and you make the Pro Bowl for nine of them, it can be widely assumed that you had a very productive career.  Maxie Baughan did just that, but because he spread those accomplishments across three teams, he is not specifically associated with any franchise, which may have hampered his recognition factor.

Baughan first cut his teeth with the Eagles and was a big part of their championship run in 1960.  He was easily the best defender on the Eagles, but as that team’s fortunes waned, he looked to be traded to a contender.  He took his skills to the Rams and later Washington, where at both stops he remained a perennial Pro Bowler.

29. Roman Gabriel

In the early 1960s, to say that the Los Angeles Rams were bad would be an understatement.  Things began to change slowly once Roman Gabriel really came into his own as their Quarterback.

64. Harold Jackson

Harold Jackson had two great seasons in Philadelphia leading the league in receiving yards in 1969 and 1973.  It is too bad that Jackson was the only one playing well for those dreadful Eagles teams.

103. John Hadl

A lot of people talk about “Playstation” numbers whereby offensive stars put up offensive numbers that don’t seem realistic.  John Hadl was putting up those types of numbers when Quarterbacks generally were more conservative and decades before the Madden craze took over.

On three separate occasions, John Hadl eclipsed 3,000 yards passing.  This is expected out of many Quarterbacks now, but it was very impressive considering the era he played in.  He was one of the games early gunslingers and as such posted very impressive Touchdowns Pass numbers.  Subsequently, this led to a copious amount of interceptions and he did finish his career with more picks than TD passes.

168. Roger Brown

It is alleged that Roger Brown was the first legitimate 300 pounder in the National Football League.  Nowadays, this is common place, but it was Brown who proved that a much larger man could be very much athletic.  It is also a amazing that someone so big could be forgotten so quick.
