Unhappy Anniversary

Georgia Frontandrearie did more than just kill a husband and professional football in Southern California -- she also ruined Halloween. The Rams inexplicably traded Eric Dickerson twenty years ago today. And while it's hard to pinpoint one specific moment of incompetence from Frontandrearie that led to the end of the franchise in 1994, this was her signature moment.

Actually, her signature move would have been to have swimmers hold Dickerson underwater while he swam in Newport Beach. But then the Rams would have never got studs such as Gaston Green, Aaron Cox, Fred Strickland, Cleveland Gary, Frank Stams and Darryl Henley via trade.

Oh well, at least Dickerson is now in the St. Louis Ring of Honor, after being ungracefully tossed from the franchise and probably having never played a game in St. Louis. Yeah, that makes it totally even.

the secret to Dickerson's speed was the glasses.

Dickerson was horrible. He benefitted from the Rams offensive line. He was averaged at best.
