    In spite of the recent struggles by the Raiders, they were probably the best team in football in the 60s through the 80s

    Al Davis was the Raiders

    I just heard. Al was very influential to the entire NFL. Thanks for helping shape the best rivalry not only in the AFC West but as far as I'm concerned the NFL.

    He never learned to let go

    But in his prime, he was a genius
