no, in fact i don't.  he's going to be a long haul guy.  1 catch in preseason, so far, but they get philly the giants and baltimore right off the get go as part of the league wide conspiracy to keep them saddled with a brutal sked every year, so it's possible that he takes a while to reach speed.  I need to see mcd's offense a bit before i can get a feel for the personnel changes etc.  kendricks is looking like a good pick at TE.  msw is a deep threat, how does that work in mkd's O?  but msw was one of the unsung heroes last season.  he'll produce sooner or later.

One of the National Football League's oldest franchises, the Rams began their football life in Cleveland in 1937.

they hit the jackpot in 1945 with a 15-14 victory over the Washington Redskins in the NFL championship game. A sensational rookie quarterback from UCLA, Bob Waterfield, was the league's Player of the Year.

That championship game proved to be the last the Rams would ever play in Cleveland. Dan Reeves, a shrewd businessman and a master innovator who had bought the team in 1941, decided to move the Rams to Los Angeles for the 1946 season. He then signed Kenny Washington and Woody Strode to make them the first two African-American athletes with an NFL contract since 1932. Reeves also instituted the famed "Free Football for Kids" program, providing the groundwork for today's successful TV policies, and became the first to employ a full-time scouting staff while being the first major sports franchise to move to the wescos.

They won four NFL Western division championships in seven years and captured their second NFL title in 1951. With Waterfield and Norm Van Brocklin connecting regularly on long bombs to Elroy "Crazylegs" Hirsch and Tom Fears, the Rams played an exciting, glamorous brand of football. 

The effect at the gate was outstanding. Topped by a crowd of 102,368 for a San Francisco 49ers game in 1957, turnouts in the Coliseum topped 80,000 on 22 occasions during the Rams' first 20 years in Los Angeles.

George Allen took over the coaching reins in 1967. Allen fashioned the highly-publicized "Fearsome Foursome" line that included future Hall of Famers Merlin Olsen and Deacon Jones. Allen's five-year record was 49-19-4, best ever for a Rams coach. The Rams continued their winning ways through the 1970s. They won five straight NFC Western division championships from 1973 to 1977 with Chuck Knox at the helm and then two more divisional titles after Ray Malavasi replaced Knox in 1978. The 1979 Rams won the NFC championship and represented the nfc in superbowl 14.

n 1972, the Baltimore Colts' Carroll Rosenbloom traded franchises with Bob Irsay and took control of the Rams. Rosenbloom died in 1979 and his widow Georgia replaced him as owner/president. In 1995, the Rams moved to St. Louis where they play in the Edward Jones Dome. In 1997, the Rams hired former Philadelphia Eagles coach Dick Vermeil.

Two years later, in 1999, the Rams were transformed into Super Bowl champions. Guided by quarterback Kurt Warner and running back Marshall Faulk, the team beat Tennessee 23-16 in a thrilling Super Bowl XXXIV. Following the victory, Vermeil retired and was replaced by Mike Martz, the team's offensive coordinator, who promptly guided them right back to the superbowl vs the spyware laden pats in 2002. even though the pats knew all the plays ahead of time, the rams came up just 29 seconds short of a victory.

In 2009, the Rams named Steve Spagnuolo as their head coach, who wasted no time in assembling a winning team behind future hofer samuel J. Bradford.

all time record: 530-514-20  (WOW).

Jim Benton's 303 yards receiving vs. the Detroit Lions on 11/22/45, was a Rams and NFL first.
 

On 10/22/50, the Rams defeated the Baltimore Colts 70-27. By contrast, in 1937 the Rams scored just 75 points the entire season.

scurds- Since we have some Cleveland area fans on this site, we must mention that the Rams started there in 1936 before moving to LA in 1946. Some folks argue that  they didn't want to compete with the Paul Brown Browns of of the AAFC and later the NFL.

the ram page at nfl dot com didn't.  how many superbowls could he have won with payton manning if they weren't chincy with faulk's contract?  instead manning became a "yeah but where are all the rings?" guy for awhile at least.
