Chuck Knox and the 1970s Los Angeles Rams

Perhaps one of the most underrated teams during the 1970s, the NFL’s Los Angeles Rams led by head coach Chuck Knox were a force to be reckoned with. In his five years as head coach of the Rams from 1973-1977, the Rams won their division (the NFC West) each year with a different starting quarterback: John Hadl, Ron Jaworski, Pat Haden, James Harris, and Joe Namath. He compiled an impressive regular season record of 54-15-1 and made it to the NFC Championship Game on three different occasions, only to lose each one. He resigned following the 1977 season in anticipation of Rams owner Carroll Rosenbloom firing him based on his 3-5 career playoff record with the team.
