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.
