Yeah, there's not going to be any doom-and-gloom here; there's been enough for today. If you're going to talk about who will replace AD, anything about drafting or trading for his replacement, you're in the wrong thread. This thread is a tribute to AD, where you post highlights, interviews, memories, basically the happy tribute stuff.

I'll get us started with this:



Anyone have any more happy memories?

I always get a chuckle when I think about the time Devonta Freeman tried to fight Aaron Donald, so Aaron grabbed him by his jersey and lifted him up in the air. He was kicking his legs and everything. How humiliating!

#99 deserves nothing but praise for what he’s done. I thought he’d try to get another Lombardi this year with the Rams reloading.
We have no idea what it takes to keep in the shape he was in.
Thanks AD

Your wish is my command, courtesy of JomBoy (always a good watch to see his breakdowns).



Edit: Dammit, stupid NFL YouTube laws. Well, just click the link.

Has any defender, ever in the history of the NFL, made a decisive play in the conference championship game, and in the super bowl in the same season? First ballot HOFer for sure. Should be unanimous.

I have no media to share and wish I had my camera at a moment more than so many other times.

Our seats are 10 rows from the field on the 20. One play AD was in an open field running full speed right at us chasing it down. The huge man at speeds not possible was coming down on what felt like...........us.

For a small moment, I felt some fear.

Not sure if it made any tape but there was no other time in AD's career did I appreciate his force like that.

I may have sharted a bit but it could have been the taco salad.

What an amazing 10 years it has been being a RAMS fan.

Thanks for the thread.

GO RAMS!!!

my top 5 AD99 plays

5- both strip sacks of Mahomes in that epic MNF game
4- tossing Wilson around like a rag doll in the epic beatdown of the Hawks
3- stopping Lynch on 4th and 1 in OT of the Thordaddy game...season opener 2015
2- forcing the bad throw by Jimmy G( oh God he's a Ram now) in the NFCCG
1 -Super Bowl winning QB hit on Burrow

Posted it in the retirement thread but I do not tire of him using Maxx Garcia to sack Kyler at the Cards in '21. Extra funny understanding that was the night it was Matthew Stafford, Cooper Kupp, AD and a cast of thousands b/c of Covid.

Mind you, this shit is probably going to get blocked by the NFL, buuut since I'm crying to AD highlights today, I'll do all five of yours:

5. (Couldn't find the second, but here's Ebukam's touchdown)



4. (Well, couldn't find one on YouTube, but here's every sack on Russell Wilson by AD:



3. (One of the best days ever.):



2. (Oh, holy fate, he's a Ram...):



1. (Give him his ring!):

Fate almighty, I can't imagine how much fear you felt. AD's a big man with bad intentions on the football field. I can't imagine how the actual offense feels.

one of the things I remember is watching his college highlights after the Rams picked him in the draft.

I remember the play against Duke where he tackled both the QB and the RB on a blown up handoff
