JIM PLUNKETT RUMORS & GOSSIP

5 for Friday: Jim Plunkett, two-time Super Bowl-winning quarterback

Through 48 Super Bowls, there have been 11 quarterbacks who have won more than one Big Game. Seven are in the Hall of Fame, while three — Eli Manning, Tom Brady and Ben Roethlisberger — are still active. And then there's Jim Plunkett, a native of San Jose who became a Heisman Trophy-winning star at Stanford in 1970, beating out Notre Dame's Joe Theismann and Ole Miss...

Raiders Proud to See Ray Guy Inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame

There is a laundry list of Raider greats that belong in the Hall of Fame.

Ten No. 1 overall NFL Draft picks you may have never heard of

He’s the marquee of all marquee names, a player who, with very few exceptions, is selected by a downtrodden team and a fan base in much the same condition. This young prospect is often looked upon as a savior who could possibly lift the fortunes of his team and the spirits of its fans. I’m talking about the number one overall selection of the annual NFL Draft. But while the track...

Jim Plunkett, former New England #1 draft pick, was no Tom Brady

Throughout the history of the New England Patriots organization, they’ve had their share of draft successes at the quarterback position (maybe heard of Tom Brady?), but they’ve also had some failures. Not to be too confused here, the Patriots haven’t fallen victim quite to the levels of Ryan Leaf, Akili Smith & Tim Couch, but not all college stars have walked into Foxboro...

Why Raiders QB Jim Plunkett is not a Hall of Famer

It seems that some of Raider Nation disagrees with some of the content in my last article, Top 5 Raiders that should be in the NFL Hall of Fame. Apparently I left off a very important person in Raider history, former Raiders quarterback, Jim Plunkett. So why did I leave Plunkett off of my list? Why not at least give him honorable mention? It was for the same reason that he hasn...

The next Jim Plunkett? Why JaMarcus Russell deserves a second chance in the NFL.

As a Raiders fan it is hard for me to fathom seeing JaMarcus Russell in an NFL jersey but he deserves another shot in the NFL. I saw firsthand how incompetent and unmotivated JaMarcus Russell was as an NFL quarterback. I remember the holdout, the stopping of practice to find his earring, and the Tony Siragusa-like belly. One cannot even utter the name JaMarcus Russell to members...
