Jay Schroeder? Rusty Hilger...


I remember after Schroeder led an improbable Raider comeback win against Denver on MNF Davis proclaimed him the "second coming of Terry Bradshaw." He turned out to be a decent QB but never good enough. That AFC Championship Game debacle in Buffalo? Trading for him and giving up a Jim Lachey who became a perrenial Pro Bowl tackle ranks among the Silver and Black's worst ever deals.

Yep...that's the one. Probably THE worst lost in Raider history. Right up there with the infamous Immaculate Reception in the '70's. Jackson would have made a difference...kept their K-Gun offense off the field. I rooted for the Giants in the Super Bowl afterwards.

i hated those Bills teams...hated them so much that i rooted for the Oilers when Reich was filling in for that one playoff game...hated them even more after they came back



but yea, Bo would have defnitely kept their offense on the sidelines...going into a hostile, cold weather, playoff game, the one thing we needed was ball control...all i remember was 3 and out and buffalo TDs right after

My All-Time Raider QBs...
1. Jim Plunkett
2. Ken "The Snake" Stabler
3. Rich Gannon
4. Jeff Hostetler


Loved Hos' grit... Toughed it out even though he took a pounding behind a porous line.
