About Los Angeles Rams
History of the Los Angeles Rams
The Los Angeles Rams franchise began as the Cleveland Rams in 1936 during the second American Football league. A year later the team joined the National Football League. In 1946, the team moved to Los Angeles becoming the Los Angeles Rams to avoid competition with Paul Brown's Cleveland Browns of the All-America Football Conference. Once the Rams moved to Los Angeles, the NFL became the first professional coast to coast sports league in the United States. The team moved again in 1979 to Anaheim but kept the name of Los Angeles. The club settled in St. Louis prior to the 1995 season and remained there for twenty years. In early 2016 the Rams, Oakland Raiders, and San Diego chargers petitioned to move back to the LA area. The Rams returned to Los Angeles, where they currently play at Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. The LA Memorial Coliseum opened May 1, 1921 and seats 93,607 spectators. It was the home for the Rams from 1946-1994 and then again when the Rams returned in 2016. In 2019, the Rams will move into Inglewood Stadium.
The Rams have had many successes but their first Super Bowl win came in 1999 at Super Bowl XXXIV. The 1999 season would turn out to be coach Dick Vermeil's final one with the team. Offensive Coordinator Mike Martz was hired for the following season and took the Rams back to the Super Bowl with a team labeled as "The Greatest Show on Turf" based on their pass-first identity that would post an NFL record of points forged over the course of three seasons between 1999 and 2001. Many great Hall of Famers have worn the Rams Blue and Gold including Super Bowl XXXIV MVP Kurt Warner, Eric Dickerson, Marshall Faulk, Norm Van Brocklin, Jack Youngblood and former coach George Allen.
2017 Los Angeles Rams Season
The Los Angeles Rams season was relatively successful despite some injuries players experienced over the course of the season. Wide receiver Robert Woods endured a shoulder injury that prevented him from playing multiple games. Also, running back Malcom Brown suffered a knee injury, taking him out of play. The Rams were able to finish the regular season 11-5 which did qualify them for the postseason. Los Angeles went head to head with the Atlanta Falcons but lost to the Falcons 26-13. Despite their loss in the playoffs, the Rams will play off the momentum from the 2017 season and perform even better this fall. On April 24, 2018 the Rams resigned cornerback Troy Hill, running back Malcom Brown, and kicker Sam Ficken. In addition to this, the Rams agreed to a five-year extension for wide receiver Brandon Cooks. With these returning players, the Rams will be ready for any team that stands in their way of a Super Bowl title.
