8. Early 1980s Raiders - Hall of Famer Ted Hendricks joined with Rod Martin and Matt Millen to lead the Raiders to five playoff berths and a pair of Super Bowl victories in six seasons from 1980-85. In Super Bowl XV, Martin had a record three interceptions to secure victory for the AFC Wild Card Raiders.

Very nice!

That group is pretty beastly, when you consider how hard they played. Flat out effort could put them on the list.

I think 4th or 5th would have been more appropriate considering the length of success this group had plus two super bowls.Once again the Raiders get no respect.
