The Oakland Raiders

They're winning, they've got the best looking cheerleaders, and they've got the NFL's toughest logo. The Zone is most certainly talking about the Silver and Black - the Oakland Raiders. They have one of the best overall records in the history of the NFL, but that's easy to do when your logo is a Raider who looks tough as nails and ready to rock.

When the Raiders began: September, 1960.

Famous Battles: They raided the Superbowl trophy case in 1977, 1981, and 1984.

Famous Voyages:


Part One - The owner of the Raiders, Al Davis, sends his gang sailing down the coast of California to Los Angeles where they become the LA Raiders.

Part Two - 1995, The Voyage Home; After being given lots of treasure (big dosh) to return home, Al Davis moves the Raiders back up the coast to Oakland.

Cheerleaders: The Raiderettes

Head Coach: Jon Gruden

Leading the Attack in the 2000 season: QB, Rich Gannon and Wide Receiver, Tim Brown.

Holding the Fort: Cornerback, Charles Woodson and Linebacker, William Thomas.

This Year: The Raiders' record looks good and they've had a great regular season. But they've also had an easy schedule. They'll be tough to beat in the playoffs, but don't expect to see them in the Super Bowl.

    Pats. The only way they would lose would be due to the deflated balls as an illegitimate way of getting to the Super Bowl. They wouldn't deserve to win in the eyes of some people. Maybe even the NFL. Besides that, the Patriots will take this win.  And lets be honest, nobody wants to see the Seahawks win two years in a row except for the fans that became fans once they saw that they were good. (Yes the shots have been fired.)

The highest I go is about the middle of the pitch :p :p :p So basically you play more of an attacking right midfield? That's interesting.  I'm guessing you play a 4-2-3-1 ? I play RM and LM. I'm a Box to box midifielder though. I rarely go through to the middle and I play wide.
