There's a lot of player movement within the AFC West, but there is the one that still haunts Davis! The Raiders actually got the better of the Broncos in the early years, with Hall of Fame corner Willie Brown and defensive lineman Lyle Alzado.
But what Raiders fans should really hate the Broncos for, was for a player who never became a Raider.
Elway was a rocket-armed, mobile quarterback who was coming out of Stanford and who wouldn't play for the then-Baltimore Colts. He even went as far as writing a letter to them, informing him that he would rather play professional baseball.
Al Davis then made a deal that would have made Elway a Raider, but the Broncos came in and snaked him at the last minute, without Davis' knowledge. This was colossal, because John Elway, despite being a Bronco, was the best to ever do it at quarterback.
I still wonder what it would have been like if Elway had been able to throw to the world-class sprinters the Raiders had. His tight end would have been Todd Christensen, and Marcus Allen would have been his running back for the better part of his career.
He would have had Bo Jackson for a couple of years, and his main target for most of his career would have been Tim Brown. From the mid '80s to early '90s, Elway took Bronco teams to the Super Bowl with no help.
Meanwhile, the Raiders had stars in every position but they had horrible quarterbacks. If you put Elway on the Raiders at that time, the 49ers dynasty never happens because the Raiders would have dominated then.
I'm sure Davis hasn't gotten over that one.
