1. Ken Stabler

And speaking of deserving Hall of Fame love – there is perhaps no more glaring, more horribly disgusting omission from the Hall of Fame than Ken Stabler. The fact that the Snake was never voted in is just mind boggling and entirely shameful.

The Snake was a master under center. He was an artist. He had that rare ability to make something out of nothing – and make it look easy. Stabler was involved in some of the most iconic plays not just in team, but in league history. And he was brilliant under pressure.

He had that knack for playing his biggest when it mattered the most and had the ability to bring his team back from the dead to snatch a win.

As a Raider, Stabler amassed four Pro Bowl selections, an NFL MVP award, and a slew of other honors. But the one that mattered the most to him was his win in Super Bowl XI.

Stabler played with passion and artistry that made him great. That made him a legend. For his career in silver and black, he posted a 69-26-1 record as a starter. He threw for just over nineteen thousand yards on nearly 60 percent passing, and also tossed 150 touchdowns.

The fact that Stabler was never elected to the Hall is mind-boggling, and it’s an glaring oversight. He was every bit as deserving as some of his contemporaries who got in and yet, has been snubbed.

It’s tragic that he did not live to see himself enshrined. One can only hope that the Senior Committee does the right thing and honor him with a posthumous induction – one that the Snake rightly deserves.
