Fan Poll: Choose defensive end for All-Raiders Team

New, comments

Plenty of quarterbacks went down hard, which of these pass-rushing legends were the best?

This is part eight of Silver & Black Pride's All-Raiders Team fan poll and this installment focuses on the defensive ends that have represented the franchise.

We all remember Al Davis's famous (infamous) remarks related to this position: "The quarterback must go down, and he must go down hard." While the league and opponents didn't enjoy those remarks, the Silver and Black's pass rushers have been downing passers with conviction for more than 50 years.

We'd like to ask Raider Nation to vote on an All-Time Raiders Team. The criteria is simple, select a player at each position you believe best embodied the essence of all things Silver and Black. The players you select did not have to win Super Bowls or be selected to Pro Bowls, just emulate the Greatness of the Raiders.

Below is a poll with some of the defensive ends that have worn the colors. If you have another player in mind, simply add him in the comments and we will include your vote in the final tally. The top two vote-getters at the position will be included on your All-Raiders Team. This may be the toughest Raiders poll ever!
