Hall of Fame is for the king of kings, the elite of the elite. True elitist, in Americas favorite game. Who come to mind as a Raider who has been overlooked?

Tim Brown- I always thought he was better than Chris Carter perhaps the 2nd greatest wideout ever, who never played with a great Qb

Tom Flores- 2 time Super Bowl winning coach, first Hispanic head coach

Cliff branch- originally deep threat

Who else you guys have?

Branch actually has comparable or better stats than Lynn Swann and John Stallworth. I don't get why he's not in. Evil or Very Mad

Anyones list that doesn't include Ray Guy is not a real list on this topic.

No Terrelle Pryor?

But in all seriousness.

Guy
Flores
Branch
Brown
Hayes
Plunkett (borderline HOF)

the fact that Tim Brown, Tom Flores, and Jim Plunkett are not in the Hall of Fame makes the HOF illegitimate in my mind.





Cris Carter over Tim Brown, are you serious? Wow that makes me mad

Plunkett isnt a HOF. Brown Branch and Guy are the only three I feel we are cheated by. Everyone else is boderline at best.

Its not entirely fair to Brown, but Carter has been waiting longer. Thats how the game is played.

Brown will make it in after he pays his 'dues' (time)
Plunkett doesn't deserve it...Career not seasons...
Flores (who knows) but Al is in and many were seen as puppets...
A punter and Guy should be in if but...special teams?!?

Plunkett won two Super Bowls. You can't say Flores without Plunkett.

Are there any two time Super Bowl winners not in the Hall other than Plunkett? Hell, Steve Young got in with only one. And what did he do in Tampa that Plunkett didn't do in New England or Frisco?

I might be mistaken, but I don't think plunkett was even the starting QB both years the raiders when to the Super Bowl. I mean he wasn't like a Kurt Warner or something.

Kenny Stabler needs to go as well, he's the best QB ever to play for the raiders(from a numbers stand point) Super Bowl winner and has played in some of the most controversial games in the sport. Hell the guy was named an all decade QB, how is he not in the hall yet have blind rainbow throwing bob gerise is?
