ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Mike Martz made it a point to relish the good times. The St. Louis Rams' three-year run from 1999 to 2001 which packed two Super Bowl trips and the franchise's lone title, the coach frequently said, was a "special place in time."
The victory total from any of those glory years, when the Rams went 13-3, 10-6 and 14-2, easily trumps the lousy 6-41 record the Rams have mustered under three coaches, two front offices and a revolving door roster the past three seasons heading into Sunday's finale.
The Rams (1-14) are one loss away from clinching the first No. 1 overall draft pick since 1963 when, coming off a 1-12-1 season, they selected Oregon State running back Terry Baker.
