Postby Poobah » Sat May 29, 2004 7:38 pm

Pro Football Weekly recently sifted through the annals of NFL history to develop a list of 5 candidates deemed "the best in the history of the franchise". Apparently you can vote on profootballweekly.com for the player you think is the best of the best. They will do one team a week between June 6 and Jan 15, starting with Arizona and finishing with Washington. The Rams candidates are:

E Tom Fears
HB/E Elroy Hirsch
DE Deacon Jones
QB Norm Van Brocklin
QB/DB Bob Waterfield

I'm questioning if most of you guys (excluding GP) know anything about Deacon. He played back in the '60's, before I was even around.

But I did see plenty of tapes and my dad told me all sorts of tales about him and the "Fearsome Foursome."

I too will vote for Deacon, but because of the fact that he revolutionized the defensive end position IMO, the first real QB rusher from the end.

Deacon Jones was a seriously bad dude. Nobody liked to play him because of his signature move ... the headslap. Bammmm ...
Although he seems meek and mild as a commentator, Merlin Olsen was a load too.

Deacon Jones - he was awesome and has a badass name to boot.
