Oakland Raiders: Lockout Gives Time to Know the Hall of Fame Raiders

How do you keep yourself busy during the NFL lockout? Do you research the great players? Do you study the young college guys and free agents who might be good additions to the team?

What about taking time to learn more about the great ones, the players who have been enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio?

So far, the Oakland Raiders have 19 enshrined members of the Hall of Fame. It seems to me that 19 is a small number compared to the many years the Oakland Raiders dominated the NFL with outstanding players.

Nineteen is also an interesting number according to one article. It is the number which means “judgment.”

Well, let’s get excited in 2011 and hope that more Oakland Raiders get into the Hall of Fame so that the number of great Oakland Raiders rises above 19.

Here is an interesting article that associates the number of times a word shows up in the Old Testament. Read this article, if you are interested. Link

Since there is so much uncertainly about the starting date of the 2011 season, a little fun searching for the meaning of so many things and of so many struggles to end the lockout, I am sharing the link with you.

Go Raiders in 2011! More Raiders in the Hall of Fame!
