Recently I saw a clip from the NFL Network profiling the Raiders top 10 all—time players. No. 1 for them was Fred Biletnikoff, while Tim Brown was No. 10.
I was quite surprised by this. Not to take anything away from Biletnikoff—he is definitely an all—time Raider great—but Tim Brown is Mr. Raider.
I know Biletnikoff played in a different era with different offenses but Browns' numbers are hard to deny.
When Brown retired, he was top three all—time in receptions, yards, and touchdowns. He did all this while catching footballs from several different quarterbacks (if anyone knows exactly how many let me know) and they weren't all Rich Gannons. He usually had no more than two or three years with a QB.
So that brings me to my question....
Who is the Raiders best receiver of all time?
I see it as three horse race: Tim Brown, Cliff Branch, or Fred Biletnikoff.
So what do you guys think? Write—ins are welcome too.
