Quarterback: Ken Stabler, Jim Plunkett, Daryle Lamonica, Derek Carr
The Raiders have had a number of quarterbacks who are considered iconic players in the history of the organization. Here are the four we would put on Mount Rushmore.
There is no doubt that when it comes to Raiders quarterbacks, Ken Stabler‘s face would adorn the team’s Mount Rushmore at the position. In fact, Snake is the face of Raiders football, and is immortalized as the most iconic player in team history.
The quarterback of two Raiders Super Bowl winning teams, Jim Plunkett was the Most Valuable Player of Super Bowl XV. In that game, Plunkett threw for 261 yards and three touchdowns, and the fact that he is not in the Pro Football Hall of Fame is an absolute disgrace.
The Mad Bomber played for the Raiders from 1967-74, after coming over in a trade for Tom Flores and Art Powell. Daryle Lamonica led the Raiders to Super Bowl II, was a two-time AFL Most Valuable Player, and led the team to four AFL West division titles.
The current signal-caller for the Raiders, Carr has already been to the Pro Bowl three times, and was in the discussion for the Most Valuable Player award in 2016. His 103 touchdown passes in his first four season is good for the fourth-best mark in NFL history, and by the time he is done, he should own every Raiders passing record.
