The St. Louis Rams began playing football in 1936 in Cleveland, Ohio. They moved to Los Angeles, California in 1946 and remained there until 1995 when the team relocated to St. Louis, Missouri. In 1947 halfback Fred Gehrke, an art major in college, painted the ram design (after drawing a pen-and - ink sketch) on his leather headgear. The following season the Rams became the first pro team to wear a helmet insignia. The Rams won seven consecutive titles from 1973-1979. They were also the first franchise to win a NFL Championship in three different cities. ( Cleveland 1945; Los Angeles 1951; St.. Louis 1999). The teams uniform colors have gone from red and black to gold and blue to blue and white back to yellow gold and blue and finally to old gold and navy. In 2010 the Rams drafted quarterback Sam Bradford and finished the season 2nd in their division. With the help of running back Steven Jackson Bradford hopes to lead his team to a successful 2011 season.
