6. Tom Flores

Most people probably remember Tom Flores, the coach. Few remember Tom Flores the starting quarterback for the Raiders.

Flores was a fantastic head coach, guiding the Raiders to two Super Bowl wins. But he was also a pretty productive quarterback for the silver and black. He was with the team at its inception back in 1960. And though those early teams were pretty bad, Flores himself wasn’t too shabby.

Flores’ best year, statistically speaking, was 1966 in which he threw for 2,600 yards and 24 touchdowns, posting a 7-2-1 record in his ten starts and leading the Raiders to a second-place finish in the AFC West. It would also be his last season in Oakland as he was traded to the Buffalo Bills the following year.

For his Raiders career, Flores threw for nearly twelve thousand yards in posting a 30-30-3 record as a starter. He also threw for 92 touchdowns in his 63 career starts.
