All the way back in 1988, Al Davis made a trade that left everybody scratching their heads. He moved tackle Jim Lachey – who would go on to be a perennial Pro Bowler for quarterback Jay Schroeder. It seems a lopsided trade now, but at the time, Schroeder filled a need and Lachey was something of a surplus lineman.

Schroeder spent five seasons with the Raiders and over that span, made 57 starts. In that time, he put together a 32-25 record and had some great moments. Such as leading the Raiders back from a 24 point deficit to beat the Denver Broncos on Monday Night Football. But as the Raiders’ starter, playoff success was hard to come by.

Statistically speaking, though, Schroeder didn’t do too badly. He threw for more than ten thousand yards (10, 276) and tossed 66 touchdowns.

As the Raiders’ starter in 1990, Schroeder went 1-1 in the postseason. After having a good first round and defeating the Bengals, Schroeder, and the Raiders imploded against the Buffalo Bills the following week. They turned the ball over a whopping seven times – Schroeder was picked off five times – in a 51-3 rout by Buffalo.
