Marshall Faulk named Hall of Fame semifinalist

New, comments

Former St. Louis Rams great Marshall Faulk made the cut as one of 26 Hall of Fame semifinalists. 

Though he started his career with the Indianapolis Colts, Faulk holds a special place in the hearts of Rams fans. The do-it-all running back became synonymous with the Greatest Show on Turf era, helping the Rams win a Super Bowl and another NFC Championship. 

Faulk is third among Rams franchise rushing leaders with 6,959 yards on 1,447 carries. He holds the franchise record for rushing TDs with 58. He's also pretty high up there on the receiving leader board too with 4,071 yards (4th), 470 catches (4th), and 27 TDs (10th). 

What else is there to say about Faulk? I'd be shocked if he weren't a favorite players for every member of the TST community. This is the first year Faulk is eligible for the HOF. And it's stiff competition to make the next cut, which trims the list down to 15 finalists in January. 

Also on the list is another Rams running back: Jerome Bettis.
