Keating was a two-time AFL All-Star. He is a three-time AFL Champion and is was selected to the AFL All-Time Second-Team.
I have looked up stats, and I have decided to sub-in Townsend for Warren Sapp. Sistrunk was selected to one Pro Bowl. Yes, I know Townsend played end, but leaving out the Oakland Raiders sack leader did not seem right, know what I mean? Townsend was an All-Pro four times, and was constantly disrupting opposing team's offenses. Townsend recorded 109.5 sacks, three interceptions, and four touchdowns. Just think about is this way, we will just move Townsend to defensive tackle just like we did with Tommy Kelly.
Davidson was an AFL All-Star three times from 1966-1968. He helped the Raiders win the 1967 AFL Championship. This 6'7" monster is quite an actor. He has appeared in several films including M*A*S*H and Conan the Barbarian.

"The Assassin" is one of the most controversial players of All-Time. My favorite player, Tatum is often regarded as the hardest-hitter in NFL History. Tatum has knocked many players out, taken several helmets off, and even paralyzed a player from the chest down (Darryl Stingley). Tatum was selected to only three Pro Bowls because of his controversial hits. Tatum was named NFL Defensive Back of the Year in 1973. Tatum has been quoted saying, "I believe that my best hits border on felonious assault." Tatum intercepted 37 balls and one touchdown.
Atkinson is a two time AFL All-Star. Atkinson has given Pittsburgh Wide Receiver Lynn Swann two concussions. Pittsburgh coach Chuck Noll referred to Atkinson as part of the "criminal element" in football. Atkinson has recorded 30 interceptions and two touchdowns.
Blanda has score more points than anyone in NFL History. Against the Steelers, Blanda threw for two touchdowns in relief of an injured Daryle Lamonica.
One week later, his 48-yard field goal with three seconds remaining salvaged a 17-17 tie with the Kansas City Chiefs. Repeating the thrilling finish on Nov. 8, Blanda once again came off the bench to throw for a pass to tie the Cleveland Browns with 1:34 remaining, then kicked a 53-yard field goal as time expired for the 23-20 win. In the team's next game, Blanda replaced Lamonica in the fourth quarter and connected with Fred Biletnikoff on a touchdown pass with 2:28 left in the game to defeat the Denver Broncos, 24-19. The incredible streak concluded one week later when Blanda's 16-yard field goal in the closing seconds defeated the San Diego Chargers, 20-17.
In the AFC title game against the Baltimore Colts, Blanda again relieved an injured Lamonica and had a superb performance, completing 17 of 32 passes for 217 yards and 2 touchdowns while also kicking a 48-yard field goal and two extra points, keeping the Raiders in the game until the final quarter, when he was intercepted twice. Aged 43, he became the oldest quarterback ever to play in a championship game.
