NFL Films: Al Davis :Raiders of The Lost 1990's



The 1990s was for the Oakland Raiders, what the 1990s was for the Japanese economy, a lost decade. There was really only one year that the Raiders were any type of Super Bowl contender, which was 1990. And had RB Bo Jackson not of gotten hurt in the AFC Divisional Playoff against the Cincinnati Bengals, the AFC Final against the Buffalo Bills would've been a lot different but most of. The rest of the 1990s, the Raiders either barely made the AFC Playoffs or barely missed the AFC Playoffs but they were no longer a dominant team in the AFC or AFC West where they are a Super Bowl. Contender practically every year like they were in the early and mid 1980s or the 1970s or the late 1960s, mediocrity had sunk into Los Angeles for the Raiders and is one reason why they moved. To Oakland where they belong but a franchise thats as great with the history of the Oakland Raiders, should never have a lost decade.
