History of the Rams
The Rams were founded in 1936, originally in Ohio as the Cleveland Rams. The name “Rams” was chosen by general manager Damon Wetzel whose favorite college football team was the Fordham Rams. Upon their inception, the Rams were part of the American Football League. The Rams had to cease play in the 1943 season due to a shortage of players who were drafted during World War II. They resumed operations in 1944 and in 1945 the Rams won their first NFL Championship over the Washington Redskins. This would be the last season that the Rams played in Cleveland.
From 1933 until 1946 there were no Black players in professional football. After the Rams had been approved to move to Los Angles, they were making negotiations to lease the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. It was advised to them that integrating a Black player to their team would help with negations and the Rams agreed. Kenny Washington was signed to the Rams in March of 1946 and shortly after another Black player, Woody Strode, was added to the team. Washington was the first Black football player in the NFL, making his signing to the Los Angeles Rams a historic moment. The Rams played in Los Angeles from 1946-1994. In 1979, the Rams made their first Super Bowl appearance against the Pittsburgh Steelers. The Rams fell to the Steelers after a tough game with a final score of 31-19. After their Super Bowl XIV appearance, the Rams moved from the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum to the Anaheim Stadium in Orange County. The Rams remained in Orange County until their move to St. Louis in 1995.
The Los Angeles Rams officially became the St. Louis Rams in 1995. The move seemed to be a good fit for the team because in 1999 the Rams won their first Super Bowl. Prior to the start of the 1999 season, quarterback Trent Green injured his leg. Backup quarterback Kurt Warner had to step up to the plate and fulfill the role. Warner was an undrafted free agent and fans were worried that he would not be able to handle the pressure. Running back Marshall Faulk and wide receiver Isaac Bruce helped Warner and the Rams have a phenomenal season. Warner threw for 41 touchdowns that year leading the Rams to Super Bowl XXXIV. St. Louis beat the Tennessee Titans 23-16 and Warner was named MVP. The Rams did return to the Super Bowl the following year but unfortunately fell to the New England Patriots 20-17. The Rams returned to the playoffs in 2001, 2003, and 2004 but 2005 marked the beginning of a significant playoff drought for the St. Louis team. From 2005 to 2016 the Rams did not make a single playoff appearance. Right after the 2015 NFL season, the Rams, Raiders, and Chargers all filed to relocate to Los Angeles. The Rams were approved for the relocation and starting in the 2016 season they resumed play in Los Angeles. They are currently playing again at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum while a new stadium is being built for them in Inglewood, CA. The stadium will be called the Los Angeles Stadium at Hollywood Park and will be ready for the 2020 season. Sean McVay became the Rams new head coach for the 2017 season. Coach McVay helped the Rams secure their first NFC West division title since 2003, finishing the regular season with a record of 11-5. This qualified the Rams for the playoffs but sadly Los Angeles lost in the Wild Card round to the Atlanta Falcons 26-13.
