History of the Rams
The Los Angeles Rams are one of the most storied franchises in NFL history. The team has been around since 1936, when they were originally based in Cleveland, Ohio. They moved to Los Angeles in 1946 and have remained there ever since. Throughout their long history, the Rams have won three NFL championships (1945, 1951, and 1999) as well as two Super Bowls (XIV and XXXVI).
The Rams’ success began with their move to LA where they quickly became a powerhouse franchise led by legendary head coach George Allen from 1966-1970. Under his guidance, the team went on an incredible run that included five consecutive division titles from 1973-1977—the longest streak of any NFC West team at that time—as well as seven straight playoff appearances between 1975-1981 which remains a record for all teams today!
In addition to Allen’s impressive tenure with the club was Hall of Fame quarterback Roman Gabriel who threw for over 20 touchdowns four times during his career with them (1967–1972). Another great era came under Dick Vermeil who coached them from 1973–1982 leading them back into contention after several down years prior; this included taking home another division title in 1979 along with making it all way to Super Bowl XIV only to lose narrowly against Pittsburgh Steelers 31 – 19.
Finally, after almost two decades without much success or even playoff appearances, things changed drastically when Jeff Fisher took over coaching duties; he made an immediate impact winning six straight games in late season 2005 resulting first winning record since 1989! This momentum carried through the next year 2006 when despite not making playoffs still managed a 10 - 6 regular season finish followed up the 2007 13 - 3 mark earning top-seed NFC conference & hosting a first-round game against Seattle Seahawks who defeated 34 – 14. Unfortunately following seasons proved too difficult due handle & eventually led departure of Fisher in 2015 ending their nearly decade-long tenure and ultimately leading hiring of Sean McVay in 2017 — the youngest head coach in league history — who turned their fortunes around immediately by guiding the squad 11 - 5 regular season record plus trip wild card playoffs 2018 besting Dallas Cowboys 30 – 22 before falling Atlanta Falcons 26 – 13 Divisional Round.
