All-Time Rams’ Franchise Leaders At-A-Glance

At the rate he’s going, Jared Goff will be the Rams’ all-time leader in touchdown passes at some time during the 2021 season, and the record holder in passing yards by 2022. At the ripe old age of 28.

With his 32 TD passes in 2018, Goff passed Pat Haden, Billy Wade and Sam Bradford in that order on the franchise’s all-time list. That’s Cleveland, Los Angeles and St. Louis. His 65 career touchdown passes puts him in eighth place, five behind Vince Ferragomo (70) and needing 32 to catch Hall of Famer Bob Waterfield (97) for the six spot.

Todd Gurley’s 46 career rushing touchdowns is good for fourth place on the franchise list, and he has a chance to pass Marshall Faulk’s team-best 58 next fall.

Aaron Donald, who recorded a near-NFL-record 20.5 sacks in 2018, passed four men on the team’s all-time list (stat recorded since 1986, remember) and with another season like this past one will be number one.

With the 2018 season in the record books for time and memoriam, I thought I’d take a look at how today’s Rams stack up against the competition — their own team’s competition — and laid it all out in a nice neat little package for you. Rams horns instead of bow.
