A former NFL Europe quarterback who got promoted when Rams starter Trent Green was injured in the preseason, Kurt Warner had a storybook season in 1999-2000. Not only did he win the regular season MVP award after throwing for 4,353 yards, 41 touchdowns and just 13 interceptions, but he also was named Super Bowl MVP after completing 24 of 45 passes for 414 yards and two touchdowns.

The Rams had one of the most versatile backs in league history in Marshall Faulk, only the second back to ever gain 1,000 yards rushing and receiving in the same season. His 2,429 yards from scrimmage (1,381 rushing, 1,048 receiving) set a single season record.
