The Best Oakland Raiders of All Time

List Criteria: Please only rank the players based on their time with the Raiders

This is a list of the best Oakland Raiders of all time. The Silver and Black. Just Win, Baby. These are just a few of the phrases associated with what was once the most intimidating team in all off football: the Oakland / Los Angeles Raiders. When Al Davis took over the team in 1962, a new style of football was formed. The greatest Raiders players blended speed and power, a new dimension to player evaluation introduced by Davis. The best Raiders ever attribute their success to the culture of the team and to Davis's leadership. The rowdy Raiders have been to Super Bowls in the 1960s, 1970s, 1980s, and 2000s, the only team in NFL history to do so. Some of the best players in Raiders history were on these teams. Famous Raiders like Ken Stabler, Cliff Branch, and Fred Biletnikoff are some of the best Raiders skill players while Gene Upshaw, Art Shell, and Jim Otto were powerful linemen whose grit allowed for these superstars to flourish. 

The later Raiders team were flashy with superstars like Jim Plunkett, Howie Long, and Marcus Allen, who is one of the best running backs of all time,  were parts of the later Super Bowl winning teams. Even though the team made a 12 year detour to Los Angeles, many of the team's best, most iconic players were in Oakland.

This is the list of the best Oakland Raiders. If you notice someone who is missing from this list of all time Raiders, feel free to add him. Vote or rerank this list of the greatest Raiders ever according to who you think should be considered the best in franchise history.
