    Gabe played QB like a linebacker. It shortened his career and stats, but what a baller.

    I'd have Waterfield over Everett...

    List is pretty slim IMO. After the 50's we've really only had 1 franchise QB as far as I'm concerned and that's the Great Kurt Warner. Still can't believe we traded him. To this day we're still trying to dig out of the hole Martz started...
    Judge our new coach in his third year. After all our last coach was to game strategy what Yoko Ono was to the Beatles...

    I guess you were only a fan when they were in Stl to be saying KW was the only Franchise QB,,, and I speak highly of KW, but with those that were mention, are Franchise QBs..... Personal, a few of my favorites, were Roman Gabriel, the man was a big beast with an arm... and I enjoyed KW and I'm glad he made the HOF, now the RAMs need to retire his number too.....

    In my 50's and have been a fan since I can remember. We had so many great teams in the 70's and early 80's only to fall short. We tried every freaking QB we could but nothing worked. We even brought in Broadway Joe for a go. Really was a fluke that Vince got us to the SB. That wasn't even close to being our best team during that decade...

    I liked Gabreil too but he wasn't a top QB IMO. 2nd tier...

    Not a top tier?, but he won the League MVP for one year, :lol: :lol: :lol:
    If by chance Gabriel had better skill offensive players on the team, and won a Super Bowl, he would of been a HOF too.

    I'd go with this order:

    {1} Norm van Brocklin
    {2} Kurt Warner
    {3} Bob Waterfield
    {4} Roman Gabriel
    {5} Marc Bulger
    {6} Jim Everett

    Waterfield was the league's Most Valuable Player and led our team to an NFL title as a rookie in 1945, he also shared the QB spot with Van Brocklin during the Rams' '51 championship season--AFAIC he's in the "Big Three" of all-time QBs for the Good Guys... :) 8-) :idea:

    RAM POWER!!

    I like your order: But I would of put Everett in front of Bulger....

    If the RAMs would of resigned Dickerson, I believe Jim Everett would of been a better QB... and possible they could of won a SB too. But that's all wishful thinking on my behalf...

    I agree with you Commish. Gabe should be ahead of Bulger for sure...then it's kind of a toss-up between Bulger and Everett. Everett and the Rams fell apart after the frisco fiasco. :x
