4. Marv Hubbard (1969-1975)

When it came to running the football, Marv Hubbard was anything but subtle. While some running backs today juke and spend a lot of time and energy trying to get around defenders, Hubbard thought it more efficient, and peraps even fun, to lower his shoulder and dole out some punishment to those foolish enough to get in his way.

  • Hubbard caught the ball well out of the backfield, collecting 628 yards on 85 receptions. He also blocked very well, was deceptively fast, and did whatever the team needed him to do. He was a beast of a man and quite often, one man wasn’t enough to bring him down.

    He had as tough as nails, take no garbage, not afraid to get his uniform dirty attitude, and Hubbard was more than willing to do whatever it was that the team needed him to do.

    Hubbard best exemplified what the Raiders were all about – and what they’re trying to get back to being.
