This is part two of Silver & Black Pride's All-Raiders Team and this installment focuses on the offensive guards that have represented the franchise. 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 legendary offensive guards 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 offensive guard will be included on the All-Raiders O-line.
Consider, if you will, one of Al Davis' famous foundational quotes when choosing:
"They said you had to take what the defense gave you. No, we are going to take what we want."
Just as with the offensive tackles, there is one player who stands out as a Hall of Fame'no-brainer'. Art Shell at tackle and Gene Upshaw at guard (here are his Stats and Bio). With that in mind, Upshaw will be the given as one of the two best guards, leaving available the second choice for the poll.

If you haven't already, please vote in our offensive tackle poll.
