BayRaider Posted February 17, 2019 Share Posted February 17, 2019 Thought this would be a good thread and one we haven't seen on the new forum. I also was looking at a lot of teams histories, a lot of them you can rank 7-8 really good teams... but with the Raiders you can rank 17-18 really really good teams. I suppose we should be grateful. 1. 1976 Oakland Raiders (13-1, Won Super Bowl) this team won NFL.com's greatest team of all time bracket a few years back, although not sure I agree with that. Although definitely a Top 5 team of all time. 2. 1983 Los Angeles Raiders (12-4, Won Super Bowl) amazing team and beat one of the best Super Bowl Runner Ups of all time in the '83 Redskins. And destroyed them. 3. 2000 Oakland Raiders (12-4) expecting the 1980 Raiders? Nope. This is always "one of the greatest teams to never win a ring". Grudens team was amazing and destroying teams all season long. Unfortunate Gannon was out in the conf title game against the Ravens. Who knows what would of happened. 4. 1967 Oakland Raiders (13-1, lost Super Bowl) absolute dominant team that ran into Vince Lombardi. 5. 1980 Oakland Raiders (11-5, Won Super Bowl) A Super Bowl championship team, one of the least talked about Super Bowl winning teams but when you win the Super Bowl, you're a dang good team, end of story. 6. 1968 Oakland Raiders (12-2) 7. 1969 Oakland Raiders (12-1-1) 8. 1974 Oakland Raiders (12-2) could of easily been a 3-4 ring dynasty in the 70's if it wasn't for 1) Some bad calls in the playoffs 2) Steelers. The 70's Raiders were probably the most physical defense of all time with a fun and effective vertical offense. 9. 1977 Oakland Raiders (11-3) 10. 1975 Oakland Raiders (11-3) 11. 1972 Oakland Raiders (10-3-1) 12. 2002 Oakland Raiders (11-5, lost Super Bowl) 13. 2001 Oakland Raiders (10-6) 14. 1985 Los Angeles Raiders (12-4) 15. 1984 Los Angeles Raiders (11-5) 16. 1990 Los Angeles Raiders (12-4) 17. 1973 Oakland Raiders (9-4-1) 18. 1971 Oakland Raiders (8-4-2) 19. 1963 Oakland Raiders (10-4) 20. 2016 Oakland Raiders (12-4) HM: 1982 Los Angeles Raiders (8-1) hard team to rank considering the short season. So even though we tasted success recently, that team does not touch our previous teams. Hopefully we can build another dominant team like we had from 1967-1977. Cheers to the future. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
