Oakland Raiders

Fans who watched the Oakland Raiders lose 33 of their first 42 games after becoming a charter member of the American Football League in 1960 probably could not have imagined the success waiting just around the corner.  From 1965 to 1980, the Raiders enjoyed 16 consecutive winning seasons and claimed three league championships and nine division titles, while qualifying for the postseason 11 times.  The upswing began soon after Al Davis became head coach and general manager in 1963.  Behind quarterback and league MVP Daryle Lamonica, receiver Fred Biletnikoff and defensive back Willie Brown, Oakland (13-1) garnered its only AFL crown in 1967 before falling to Green Bay in Super Bowl II.  Despite winning 24 of 28 regular season games in 1968 and '69, the Raiders lost the AFL Championship Game both years.  Once in the NFL and featuring quarterback Ken Stabler, receiver Cliff Branch, offensive linemen Art Shell and Gene Upshaw, and linebacker Ted Hendricks, Oakland overcame four AFC Championship Game losses in six years to gain the 1976 AFC title and defeat Minnesota in Super Bowl XI.  Quarterback Jim Plunkett was the NFL's Comeback Player of the Year and Super Bowl XV MVP as the Raiders defeated Philadelphia 27-10 to cap the 1980 season.  The franchise relocated to Los Angeles in 1982, and the following season, running back Marcus Allen took home game MVP honors as the Raiders clubbed Washington in Super Bowl XVIII.  With a reputation as one of the most intimidating teams in professional sports, the Raiders returned to Oakland in 1995 and began a resurgence in 2000.  Quarterback and NFL MVP Rich Gannon led the Raiders to a rout of Tennessee in the 2002 AFC Championship Game before Oakland fell to Tampa Bay in Super Bowl XXXVII.
