Four former St. Louis Rams among 26 Pro Football Hall of Fame semifinalists

You already knew the Greatest Show on Turf-era Rams were one of the most talented teams in NFL history. Yesterday, the Pro Football Hall of Fame validated what we already knew by nominating Kurt Warner, Orlando Pace, Isaac Bruce and Torry Holt as semifinalists for the class of 2015. Strangely, all four of those perennial Pro Bowlers retired after the 2009 season, and this is their...

WR Tim Brown makes the Hall of Fame semi-finals again.

Tim brown has made the list of 26 semi finalists for induction into the NFL Hall of Fame yet again. Will this be his year? He would like to think so and all of us wholeheartedly agree with him. No WR is more deserving than Tim Brown, if for no other reason than the fact that he put up his mind boggling stats with a slew of terrible QBs throwing him the ball. As a reminder (as if...

Greene may leave Tallahassee with the most receiving yards, and finish the top 2 in catches in ACC history. Names like Torry Holt and Sammy Watkins are far down this vaunted list. That should be all one would need to know. Yet, Greene doesn’t gain national...

Tyler Holt: Not To Be Confused With Torry Holt

Tyler Holt burst onto the scene this season at a time when the Indians need him. With injuries and inconsistent play from veterans Nick Swisher and Ryan Raburn, the young outfielder will play a vital role down the stretch if the team is to stay in contention. Although not entirely off the radar, Holt certainly was not viewed as a player who would be important to the Indians in 2014...

Twitter Tuesday: St. Louis Rams somehow let Kenny Britt wear Torry Holt’s old number

The St. Louis Rams officially signed wide receiver Kenny Britt yesterday. We’ve had plenty of coverage here regarding the signing, including this, this and this, but ultimately, no matter what our stance on the signing, we all accepted that Britt was going to be part of the team and that we should root for the guy to turn his career around.

Torry Holt Gives a Whole New Meaning to Flipping Someone the Bird

Oh, the things that you find on the internet...Remember Torry Holt? The man was one of the best wide receivers in the game back in the day, and a part of the 'Greatest Show on Turf.'

For some reason he hasn't gotten...
