There are very few franchises in the NFL that can claim as large a historical contribution as the Oakland Raiders. After so many ups and downs through the franchise’s history, it’s time to revisit what makes them so great and why the Raiders are such an integral part of the game as we know it …
Having grown up a Los Angeles Raiders fan in a family that bled “Silver and Black,” I was always familiar with the names that came to define the particular era; Marcus Allen, Howie Long, and of course, Todd Christensen.
