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.
By the late ’60s, it was evident that Gabriel was a top-flight Quarterback in the NFL, and he cemented that with the 1969 NFL MVP Award. He brought the Rams to respectability and made them a legitimate championship threat. He posted very good numbers for the Rams and his powerful arm had few rivals.
Like many offensive stars from the ’60s and ’70s, Roman Gabriel has watched many of the ’90s and 00’s record huge offensive statistics that shattered that of the previous generation. This could be the primary reason why Gabriel and others like him haven’t made a dent with the Football Hall of Fame committee.
