St. Louis fans were heartbroken. Just days before the start of the 1999 season, Rams starting quarterback Trent Green suffered a knee injury that would shelve him for the entire year. For many teams such a setback would have been a crippling blow. But for St. Louis, it set the stage for the greatest Cinderella story in Super Bowl history.
Kurt Warner, who once stocked grocery shelves as he pursued his football dreams, was now the man that the Rams looked to as their leader. With the humble Warner at the controls, the team's high-powered offense, including Torry Holt, Isaac Bruce and Marshall Faulk, became known as "The Greatest Show on Turf." Warner then saved his best for the game's ultimate stage, throwing for 414 yards and two touchdowns to win MVP honors in the Rams victory over the Tennessee Titans in Super Bowl XXXIV.
