What did the Rams gain by signing Dieter Brock? Jeff Kemp can play just as well or better. With the pitiful offense that the Rams have, all they need is Nolan Cromwell, ex-college quarterback, to hand off the football and pass every Ice Age or so. TED ANDRINI Costa Mesa

John Robinson found an Everett toy stuffed in his Christmas sock. But when he wound it up, and turned it loose, it looked like Dieter Brock. BLAINE N. SIMONS Long Beach

The Rams are a very strange organization. They give big bucks for the unproven (Dieter Brock), but they won't pay the ones who prove themselves (Henry Ellard). Moreover, their coach gives away the only really mobile quarterback they have (Jeff Kemp) and, stranger yet, trades him to a team in the same division. Georgia, Robinson, Shaw--what a strange group.

Going into the Ram-Bear championship game, I honestly thought it would be impossible for Dieter Brock to play any worse than he did the week before. Well, I'd like to thank Mr. Brock for showing everyone that the impossible really is possible. JASON R. BARRY Beverly Hills Editor's note: These letters represent many of the best received by The Times in 1986.

It occurs to me that given the Ram mentality, I am certain that Dieter Brock will be rewarded with a substantial pay raise together with a 10-year contract renewal for his outstanding performance against the Bears. What a beautiful combination: One-bounce Brock and master tactician John Robinson. They should give us many years of satisfying Ram football in the years to come. HARRIS P. ELVEBAK Corte Madera

It's springtime! Flowers are blooming, birds are chirping, and John Robinson is head over heels in love with another questionable prospect. First, it was Dieter Brock, then Mike Schad and Donald Evans, now the talented, but obese and immature Craig Heyward. To hear Robinson gush about Heyward's talents while he blissfully ignores his liabilities is like listening to a teen-ager in love. BILL SEIBEL La Verne

I'm sitting here trying to find words to express my dismay at John Robinson's adamant decision to continue with Dieter Brock. His decision is not only "hard-nosed," it's also hard-headed. What is he trying to prove? Of course, with Dieter around, he has a built-in excuse for losing the big ones. BILL GORNIK Upland

I am not related to Gino Toretta and the only thing we have in common is that we both graduated from the University of Miami in 3 1/2 years. However, I agree with Allan Malamud (April 27) that he might be a sleeper in the draft. If Dieter Brock started for the Rams once, anything is possible. NATHAN J. GLEIBERMAN Beverly Hills
