Howie Long

http://espn.go.com/blog/oakland-raiders/post/_/id/4627/howie-long-sounds-off-on-the-raiders A good article on a ALL-Time Great Raiders Defensive player. Howie's perspective for the upcoming year is positive and he sounds excited. It's sad when some Raider fans only remember Howie Long as an announcer on Fox then for the bad ass that he was. Howie would make opposing qb's shit in their pants. The only NFL player that comes close to him is JJ Watt. I love his last statement, "I’m a Raider for life, and I don’t apologize for it". I'm a Raider fan for life, and I don't apologize for it. We currently do not have a player like him on our roster. We have some really good candidates Mack, Woodley, and Tuck. So, that gets me excited. Mack has that look of a hitter and we need more guys like that. To be honest we will not get to the next level until our defense is finally ready to step up. Look at the Broncos record setting offense but their D let them down. Gutierrez's article got me thinking and reminiscing about the great Raiders defense of the past and the great Raider defensive players. I think it starts with attitude and I hope that Mack, Tuck, and Woodley bring that nasty attitude back. One last thing because I know they are a lot of new Raiders fans on here. So, we need to help them by telling them stories about great Raider defensive players from our past and what made them great. I started it off with an easy one Howie Long. Howie because of his motor and aggressiveness. He brought it every single play. Also, because of his leadership , he made every defensive player accountable to the team. So, who are some all time great Raider defenders?
