Fan Poll: Choose safety for All-Raiders Team

New, comments

Few, if any, players have been more feared in NFL history than these men wearing Silver and Black.

This is part 13 of Silver & Black Pride’s All-Raiders Team fan poll and this installment focuses on the safeties that have represented the franchise. As professional football fans are all well aware, the most feared safety in NFL history wore the Silver and Black. And while "The Assassin" has been wrongfully shunned from the Pro Football Hall of Fame, many other greats have struck fear into opponent’s hearts playing the position as well. As Al Davis said, "We’d rather be feared than respected." Raiders safeties have been feared.

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 safeties 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.
