All this talk about hating the 49ers has gotten me feeling a bit nostalgic. Writing about all of those horrible 49er memories got me to thinking about my favorite Ram moments. So, I'll share and I hope you all will, too.
Forgive me if a lot of these are from the obvious 1999 season. And these are in no particular order;
1. Warner to Bruce for the Super Bowl winning TD.
2. Mike Jones Super Bowl saving tackle as time ran out.
3. Warner to Ricky Proehl to beat Tampa Bay for the NFC Championship.
4. Eric Dickerson running for 248 yards in a 1985 playoff game vs the Cowboys.
5. Flipper Anderson's record 336 recieving yards vs New Orleans in 1989. (What a game, what a comeback. I would LOVE to have this on video. Rams win 20-17 in OT! )
6. Being at the Dome when the Rams pick off Favre 6 times, 3 for TDs in 2001 playoff game. ( Possibly the best day of my life.)
7. Roman Gabriel to Jack Snow. ( Any number of times. This is what made me a fan when I was a kid.)
8. Marshall Faulk picking a shaken up Az-Hakim off of the turf to get him to the line of scrimmage with time running out vs the Titans, regular season 1999. ( I know this one is strange, especially since it was our first loss of that SB season. But it was at that moment that I knew we would win the SB. Faulk's will and leadership were impressive!)
9. Beating the 49ers 42-20 game 4, 1999 and the camera catching Marshall Faulk yelling, " This ain't your same old sorry-ass Ram's" after a score. ( It was Faulk, wasn't it? Correct me if I'm wrong.)
10. Getting my first official NFL jersey for Christmas. White and Blue Rams jersey #84 in 1969. (Awwwww)
So there ya go. I'm sure I'll think of some that I should have included and I'd love to hear yours.
