    Rams beat Montana more than any other team in the NFL and Montana was humble plus I rooted for Notre Dame as a kid....Young always seemed to not only beat the Rams, but would be up 38-10 and will still be throwing...That Bastard!

    I think Young is probably the best QB to ever play the game. If he was on the teams Montana was on they would have won one or two more SB's in my opinion.

    Joe Montana was the anti-Christ. I know this because I remember during a Monday night game in 1989, there was a segment on him at the beginning of the broadcast with a particular piece of music, an instrumental, playing in the background.

    The title of said music? Lucifer (by the Alan Parsons Project).

    Confirmed everything I thought.

    Sparing you a disseration when Shaw interviewed Carroll, Shaw stated that Carroll asked for the word like he was a experienced Head Coach with a winning record asking for what turned out to be Vermeil type of money. Carroll stated that of course he asked for quite a bit because he had heard how shrewed Shaw was so he asked for the sky to start.

    In the end Shaw was never going to hire Pete Carroll IMO and Carroll had his sights set on New England who had a far better roster in 1997. Funny Vermeil turned Shaw down twice and the Rams were going to offer the job to Kevin Gilbride with Tom Donohoe as the GM, but Gilbride chose the Chargers because of Bobby Betherard.

    Shaw then was set to hire Jim Mora, however, asked Vermeil one more time and amazingly, Vermeil accepted and actually called Jim Mora, Sr to tell him. Some bad blood after that and Vermeil tried to smooth things over by hiring Mora's son Jim Mora, Jr as Secondary coach and Mora, Jr., accepted, but recanted as the 49ers swooped in to offer him the same position with them. Mora, Jr had not signed the contract with the Rams. Later Vermeil hired Peter Guinta as secondary coach because he knew Bud Carson's system.

    Absolutely correct, sir.

    Also, the red in their uniforms symbolizes Satan, as everyone knows the devil is red.

    The gold in their uniforms symbolizes money, which we all know is the root of all evil.

    And the reason Joe Montana wore #16 is that NFL rules prohibited him from wearing #666.

    Also, anyone else note that in January 1982 they won their first Super Bowl, and later that same year Iron Maiden released the album "Number of the Beast"?

    Coincidence? I think not.

    ;)

    Did I take it too far today in the parking lot of Jack Allen's Kitchen where I had stopped off for a beer to beat the traffic?
    I am unsure....

    Only thing I was thinking about was the horror some transplant SF fan would have coming out of the restaurant into the parking lot and moving to their silver mini van only to be greeted by the TRUTH

    RAMS RULE
    SF SUCKS
