Bull Elephant backfield

 

Bull Elephant backfield

The "Bull Elephant" backfield was a title first used in reporting American Professional Football, when referring to the dominating offensive running backs of the 1950s Los Angeles Rams. The line consisted of Dick Hoerner, Paul "Tank" Younger and "Deacon" Dan Towler. This line helped name the 1951 Rams as the fourth best offense in the history of the NFL and the number one best offense in the history of the NFL for the 1950 Rams by Sports Central.[1]
