We had a ton of great responses this week to our Tuesday Community Question, which was who was the best Raiders’ offensive player ever.

There are a ton of options and you delivered. Here are some of your responses:

Jerry Rice

Bo Jackson for pure talent. Better yards/carry than Jim Brown and Barry Sanders—I think the highest in history, but for not having enough attempts to make the leaderboards. Yeah, I know production and longevity matter, but he was the best offensive player the Raiders ever had.

I became a Raider fan because of Freddy B so guess that would be my vote, however, It is about impossible to pick from so many of the greats who have wore the shield.

With a shout out to Bo Jackson!

Just one? No Way!

Art Shell- Best OLineman we ever had

Snake- A true winner

Gannon- A true leader

Marcus Allen

I am going with Brown. He played great with mediocre QBs. Imagine if he had an above average QB, where would he rank amongst WR? He would probably be in the top 3 for WR/TE receiving stats.

If the best ability is availability it has to be Gene Upshaw... 231 games and never missed a down

never missed a down

most of it at an all-pro level, might I add

Almost impossible to name one...

OL - Upshaw, Otto, Shell

TE - Casper

WR - Biletnikoff, Brown

RB - Allen

QB - Stabler

Think I have to go with Otto, Upshaw a close second.
