Perhaps it was too soon, too soon...
Back in mid-November, the Rams had six former members among the 26 semifinalists in contention to join the 2015 NFL Hall of Fame class (five if you go by the team site release that curiously ignored Jerome Bettis...foreshadowing). Fast-forward to tonight's celebration of those members voted to join the Hall and Bettis is the lone former Ram who will be enshrined in early August.
Of course that means two of the more notable snubs were Greatest Show on Turf members Kurt Warner and Orlando Pace. Both were up for inclusion for the first time.
Warner had a tough case to make for first ballot inclusion. Oppositely, it's hard to understand how Pace didn't make it. Time heals all wounds. Orlando should get in soon. Warner, and the other Rams who didn't make the semifinal cut, should be the recipient of time's good graces.
As it stands, the one former Ram headed to the Hall is the one the team decided wasn't a former Ram.
The fans know better.
