NFL Films: Al Davis Raiders: Necessary Roughness



What I respect about the Oakland Raiders of this period, is yes they were rough, tough, big and strong. And pushed the rules to the limit but they were also very smart about it and did it with a purpose and not to hurt people. But to send a message to their opponents that if they try to move the ball down the field, they are going to have to a pay a heavy price for it. Which made their opponents think twice about trying to advance the ball down the field.
