We got a lot of great responses to our Tuesday Community Question this week as we asked what Raiders player in history was the biggest unsung hero.

We had many, great answers. Below are some of them. Thanks to all who participated:

My choice would be Dave Dalby. He was the starting center for all three of the Raiders Super Bowl victories but never gets talked about. He also played 14 seasons and never missed a game.

Nnamdi still gets some respect, but I think over the next 10-20 years, his name is gonna get largely forgotten just because the teams he played on were so bad. But he was a great player. I’d also give a shout out to Jason Campbell. When he got here, that was the first time I felt like the team were winners since Rich Gannon was around.

Vann McElroy. 2 time Pro Bowler. Had 7 int’s one year. Played on a defense with a lot of household names so he kinda get’s lost in the mix.
