Well to name a few all time Raiders greats, feel free to correct me if i am wrong ;D

* Fred Biletnikoff
* Marcus Allen
* George Blanda
* Willie Brown
* Dave Casper
* Jim Otto
* Art Shell
* Ted Hendricks
* Gene Upshaw
* Mike Haynes
* Howie Long
* Jerry Rice
* Tim Brown

Now everyone of them is in the hall of fame apart from Rice and Brown but they will be in there soon enough ;D

There was a 'best starting squad' for each team in a thread here.

My suggestion was:

Quote:
QB - Stabler
RB - Bo Jackson, Marcus Allen
TE - Casper
WR - Biletnikoff, Rice
OL - Shell, Upshaw, Otto, Buehler, Bob Brown

DL - Long, Matuszak, Sistrunk
LB - Hendricks, Biekert, Villapiano, Millen
DB - Hayes, Tatum, Haynes, Willie Brown

P - Guy
K - Blanda
There's a lot to choose from though: I think Oakland had the best second string team for certain!

Lamonica, Plunkett
Van Eeghan
Christiansen
Branch and Brown
Dalby, Wiznewski, Kennedy

just on offence...

The Raiders of the 70's and half the 80's had immense depth and talent I think. The fact that so many names came straight to mind backs that up.
You won't go far wrong with those names!

So says the big bad Cardinal fan. :

Nobody can argue with the Raiders' success since 1963, least of all the Cards. Hell, you can't even argue with our attendance figures!
