Lamar Lundy could not open his eyes to see or move his mouth to speak. He could barely breathe and was aware of the presence of his former teammates only because of the boom of their voices around his hospital bed. Merlin Olsen. Deacon Jones. And, intently leaning over Lundy's face, Rosey Grier. They were there, watching over their friend, the fourth member of the Rams' "Fearsome Foursome" defensive line that dominated the NFL in the mid-'60s.

Charlie Cowan, former Ram offensive lineman, was ushered to the podium amid the applause of fans, friends and former teammates Wednesday night at Rams Park. Looking out at the more than 300 people in attendance, Cowan bowed his head. "You spend your life as a lineman in the trenches and you feel that you're not appreciated," a tearful Cowan said. "Then something like this happens and you realize you've been appreciated all along." The crowd was not only there to honor Cowan, but to help him.
