Oakland Raiders Name Game: Let's Learn the Players' Names

You probably already know all of the names of the players on the Oakland Raiders roster. I challenged my associates to learn the names. The easy way to start was to learn the names of the guys with the same last name.

Here is a list of the five groups of guys with the same last name and of the entire roster. The names of the men who have the same last name are underlined:

I told my friends and associates I would start learning the names of each and every player, but that I would begin this project by learning more about the men who have the same last name.

As I rally the folks around me to cheer for the Oakland Raiders, the idea of this name game popped up. It will be more fun in 2010 if we know the names of all of the Oakland Raiders. Distinguishing them by their attributes and statistics will also be a fun thing to do.

Go Raiders! What's in a name? Victory, we hope!
