#4: John Wayne, Rock Hudson, and Birth of the Modern Quarterback
April 8, 2016•36 min
Though a diminutive 6’1 and with merely average arm strength, Rams quarterback Case Keenum hardly has star qualities—though General Manager Les Snead and Head Coach Jeff Fisher might disagree. On this episode, we take a look at the team’s decision to use the first round tender on Keenum as well as the flurry of Rams activities during the first two weeks of 2016 NFL free agency. We’ll also explore the 1969 film, The Undefeated, starring John Wayne, Rock Hudson and an L.A. Ram who seemed typecast for the role of the modern quarterback: Roman Gabriel. Joshua Neuman is joined by The Hollywood Reporter’s Eriq Gardner on this non-diminutive episode of The Greatest Show on Grass.
