    In addition to that, Van Brocklin STILL holds the record for most passing yards in one game and he's the ONLY QB to ever win a Championship with two different teams. The QB platoon is never a good thing in the long run but the Razzle-Dazzle Rams were about the only team to make it work for a period of time.

    Den, do you recall why Reynolds left the Rams for the 49ers? I always held a grudge against him for that. Him and Wendell Tyler both went to the hated 49ers after helping the Rams to the SB in '79.

    You should share the story of Reynolds nickname and how he got for those young pups around here who may not have heard it.

    Tyler was traded so not his fault John Shaw strikes again. Jack "Hacksaw" Reynolds Hacksawed a car in half when he was in college. Players might be bigger and faster today, but they are not tougher! Not close IMO.

    How did Hacksaw go to the 49ers? Was he traded too?

    I think it's important to note that the sawing his car in half in college was because he got so pissed off over a loss. Didn't just do it as a prank. Dude was nails and little off. Perfect for that era of Rams. Him and Dryer must have been hoot.

    Quite sure the Rams cut him and he signed with the 49ers. They wanted to go with the younger Jim Collins.

    Thanks. I guess it wasn't his fault then either. Was that around the time that fans started to get the feeling that something was up with how the Rams were treating their FA's(as in not paying/resigning them)?

    I don't think so, but who knows? That was when Georgia took over and the pay issue came more in the mid 80's after she married Domnic Frontiere. Reynolds was 34 at the time and the Rams had some young linebackers in Collins, Owens & Ekern for example and was part of the reason they switched to the 3-4 under John Robinson in 1983.
