New, comments

As we come up on Super Bowl 50, the The Pro Football Hall of Fame Board of Selectors have put together the "Super Bowl 50 Golden Team". It's described as those players who had the best overall career performances in the Super Bowl.  to take the field in the Super Bowl at every position over the first 49 Super Bowls.

The Raiders have played in five Super Bowls in their history; winning three (XI, XV, XVIII) and losing two (II, XXXVII). They are represented by three career Raiders who were major factors in their three Super Bowl wins -- offensive tackle Art Shell, offensive guard Gene Upshaw, and punter Ray Guy.

Also on the team is Jerry Rice, though he makes it for his work in three Super Bowl titles with 49ers, not his one trip to the Super Bowl with the Raiders.

Here is the entire Super Bowl 50 Golden Team:
