With The NFL Hall of Fame nomination list out I would like to comment on the list.
I would have to say the list is tough, but I still think some deserving Raiders players, a Coach, and a front office man should get strong consideration for the NFL Hall Of Fame.
In no particular order I'll start at the top.
Ron Wolf, he helped build both the Raider and Packer Championship teams.
Coach Tom Flores, he led the The Raiders to two Championships. And is long overdue in my opinion.
Punter Ray Guy as everyone knows re-definded the position. He is a 3 time Super Bowl Champion, and punted for over 44,000 yards in his career. Remember the play in Super Bowl XVIII ?
Center Dave Dalby followed a Hall Of Famer Raider legend in Jim Otto and is a 3 time Super Bowl Champion. Otto played in 205 consecutive games.
Wide receiver Cliff Branch is also a 3 time Super Bowl Champion. He averaged 17.3 yards over 501 catches in his Raider career.
Quarterback Ken Stabler led the Raiders to their first Super Bowl Win. He has two receivers already waiting for him in Canton and should be joined by another.(Branch)
Quarterback Jim Plunkett is a 2 time Super Bowl winner and Super Bowl XV MVP.
Hopefully these great Raiders will join their Owner, Head Coach , and fellow Hall of fame teammates in Canton.
