Roman Gabriel is the son of a Filipino immigrant and the first Asian-American to start as an NFL quarterback. He played for the Los Angeles Rams from 1962-1972 and the Philadelphia Eagles from 1973-1977. He was the second overall pick in the 1962 NFL Draft and is widely regarded to have been one of the best quarterbacks of his era. The legendary Roman Gabriel joined Chris Myers and Wes Clements to talk about the return of the Rams and his own career post-football. Roman sang the old Rams World Champions song on the air as he was ecstatic about the team’s return to Los Angeles.

That's the MAN!!! Masking tape your flesh together to keep playing isn't about money. That's love of the game and true grit toughness. LA Rams better damn well bring back the Blue and Whites for a throwback anyways. I'd buy a jersey today!

Roman was very chatty. Love to hear more about those stories. Masking tape because they didn't have time to stitch him up.

John Wayne story was great. Loved that movie with Gab and Merlin. Saw it in the movie theater.

I'm in the White and Blue plus Blue and White Uniforms No color TV back then but did watch that Packer game in color. Just loved the colors and of the simplicity of those uniforms. I hope all former Rams are part of the Los Angeles/St Louis Rams.

Roman at 6'4", 225 pounds, was the toughest QB I saw in his era. I remember one time when some LB was messing with our RB Willie Ellison after a play (I want to believe it was a '9er LB, but I'm not sure.). Roman came rushing over and gave that LB a healthy shove and stood there glaring at him. The LB stood back and simply refused to get into it with our QB. I was so proud of Gabe! I am so used to seeing OL guys standing tall to protect their QB's. However, to see a QB protecting his RB was very special!!!

Gabriel to Snow... TOUCHDOWN! Ohh the memories. I remember how tough he was to bring down... it used to take 2 or 3 guys. When I was a kid my Mother wrote to the LA Rams and got me an autographed picture of Roman Gabriel. He was my first IDOL. The Rams were always good back then.

I too must add my two cents on the most iconic uniform so many Hollywood Heroes wore. The offensive line plays better automatically wearing these. Reason enough for me.

Think it's the dirt and grass stains? I think most OL players like the down and dirty look.:lifting::lifting:
