The St. Louis Rams began life as the Cleveland Rams in 1936, part of the American Football League. After shorts stints in a variety of cities and stadiums, the Rams settled in Los Angeles in 1946. Led by quarterbacks Bob Waterfield and Norm Van Brocklin, the Los Angeles Rams captured Western Division Championships from 1949 to 1951, before finally winning the NFL Championship in 1951.

Knox ran off a string of Western Division titles for five straight seasons. His successor, Ray Malavasi, brought the team even closer, but the Rams were knocked out of the NFC Championship by the Dallas Cowboys in 1978 and lost Super Bowl XIV to the Pittsburgh Steelers.

The Rams gave Los Angeles a solid team throughout the 1980’s, putting NFL greats such as Eric Dickerson on the field. Fans with Rams ticket watched Dickerson top 1,800 yards in his rookie season.

In the late 80’s quarterback Jim Everett and wide receiver Henry Ellard teamed up to give the Rams a powerful passing game that put the team into the NFC Championship in 1988, where they were downed by the eventual Super Bowl champion San Francisco 49ers.

The Rams packed their bags after the 1994 season and headed for St. Louis. With Dick Vermeil at the helm, quarterback Kurt Warner orchestrated a seemingly unstoppable offense, which gave the fans in St. Louis a 23-16 win over the Tennessee Titans in Super Bowl XXXIV. A return trip in 2002 resulted in a 20-17 loss to the New England Patriots.
