Marc Wilson is best remembered for being the quarterback that Jim Plunkett competed with for a starting job during the early 1980’s while the team won two Super Bowls. Drafted fifteenth overall in the 1980 draft, Wilson was on the bench when Jim Plunkett threw three TD’s in Super Bowl XV. Wilson would have an unremarkable first four seasons with the Raiders. He started nine games in his second season and throwing 14 touchdowns to 19 interceptions, and during the 1983 Super Bowl season started three games and threw eight TD’s to six picks.

Over the course of the next two seasons, Wilson would make 23 regular-season starts and a playoff start as Plunkett’s play declined and he missed time with injuries. He was 17-6 as a starter in the regular season, including going 11-2 in 13 starts in 1985, leading the team into the playoffs. While his stats were relatively unimpressive (completed only 48% of his passes, 31 TD’s to 38 INT’s), the results were good. He would ultimately throw three picks in his sole playoff start – a loss to eventual AFC Champion New England. Wilson would make 15 more starts for the Raiders in 1986 and 1987, leading the team to only seven more wins. He left the Raiders unceremoniously after the 1987 season and would spend two more seasons in the NFL with the Patriots.
