    This man is the reason sacks are an official statistic.........

    Give him due credit.

    Interesting. I thought it was, but not so.
    The Rams retired numbers are:
    7-----Bob Waterfeild
    29----Eric Dickerson
    74----Merlin Olsen
    78----Jackie Slater
    85----Jack Youngblood

    Chicago has the most with 13.
    Oakland, Dallas, Jacksonville, and the Texans have none.

    so the Cowboys in the "Ring of Honour" do not have their numbers retired? Strange.

    This is pretty damn surprising. Why would they not retire his number? The guy is one of the best players of all time. He reinvented his position! At the very least, the Rams should retire his number.
