Who's Going to Be the Oakland Raiders' Hardest Hitters in 2011?

Oakland Raiders owner Al Davis had a vision for what a football team should be in the '60s. He wanted the biggest, strongest, most intimidating men on the offensive line to plow holes for the Raiders physical running backs and protect the quarterback.

Davis also wanted to scare defensive backs with the fastest men in the world to play receiver. Not only did he intimidate defenses with all that speed, but he created excitement with anticipation of the bomb.

On defense, he had 11 angry men and those angry men made whoever had the ball go down hard. The Raiders' hard hitters over the years also created fan excitement while making opposing teams weak in the knees.

Raider head coach Hue Jackson wants to restore Davis' vision and has promised to "build a bully" in Raider Nation. The Raiders have hard hitters in place who will be used to bring the hat to opposing teams.
