I’ll admit Kerry Collins wasn’t a huge success during his time with the Silver and Black. The 7-21 record is uninspiring to say the least, especially considering Collins followed Rich Gannon as the Raiders’ starter.
However, he earned a spot on this list due to his overall effectiveness as an NFL quarterback during his 18-year career. Collins was never a star, but he was a reliable starter who could keep a decent offense afloat. It may not seem that way, but it’s more difficult to find a quarterback capable of that then you’d think.
In general, Collins was a free agency bust for the Raiders. After signing an overpriced deal, he stepped in and struggled to put Las Vegas in the win column. It was only two seasons before the Raiders decided to pull the plug, although the aforementioned inflated salary likely played a significant part in that move.
Collins wasn’t great during his time as a part of Raider Nation. However, he was a quality quarterback in general and deserves recognition for his short time on the roster.
