Marshall Faulk and Les Richter were voted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame, two former Rams of vastly different eras, enshrined forever in Canton's hallowed halls.
Be sure to read this piece on Faulk from Bernie Miklasz at the PD. From New Orleans' ninth ward to the Hall of Fame, Faulk is another one of those amazing stories that could only happen in America. I look forward to watching the next generation of the Rams' future hall of famers in the coming seasons.
