Been a while... let's see if I have anything left...

 

1.A. What is the all time regular season head to head record between the Browns and the Raiders?

Since '71 roughly every 3 years... say eleven regular season meetings...

Them in the 70's... us in the 80's... them in the 90's flip a coin in the 2000's...

Guess 4-5

B. What is the post season head to head record?

I know of one loss... dammit... 0-1

 

2. What player in history made the Pro Bowl as a member of both the Browns and the Raiders?

Alzedo?

 

3. What QB was the primary starting QB for the Raiders in a season who was also the primary starting QB for the Browns in a season?

Tomzak?

 

4. What first round draft pick of the Raiders some of his career with the Browns?

Lyle wasn't a number 1... going to guess was a guy that did not turn out being a #1...

I think Ricky Dudley stopped by for a cup of coffee by on his way out of the league. I know he was a hot commodity coming out of OSU and went to the Raiders... seems to fit the bill...

 

5. What is the last postseason game in which the Raiders have appeared?

Geez... The SB that Gruden and his Bucs beat them in... early 2000's... Brad Johnson was their QB.

 

6. A. Which of the following was the actual first name given to the Oakland AFL franchise but later changed to The Raiders:

Angels, Bikers, Caballeros, Diablos, Monsters, Oaks, Oranges, Prospectors, Redwoods, Senors

Prospectors sounds like enough of a 49er rip-off to be right...

 

B. Oakland was not the city in which that franchise was first supposed to be located. Which city were they supposed to be in?

WAG... LA

 

7. The "Raider" or Pirate on the Raiders logo depicts an actual person. Who is this person?

I did peek at the logo... looks like original, DC comic's Superman to me...

 

8. The original Raiders uniforms (worn for like 2-3 years) were NOT silver and black. What colors were they?

No idea... I think I'm getting tired... WAG - Black and White

 

9. A. In which stadium did the Raiders play their first game?

Candlestick Park?

B. What is that stadium otherwise famous for? (think: movie)

lol... gotta be Dirty Harry and Kesar Stadium... so change my above guess, please...

 

10. The Raiders ended the Dolphins winning streak in 1973 after the Dolphins perfect 1972 season.

In what stadium was that game played?

If it wasn't Oakland Alameda, I've no idea...

 

11. Name the last 2 people to wear the #2 for the Raiders.

Pretty sure JaMarkus was one of them... maybe Pryor for the other???

 

12. Name the Raiders career leaders in the following categories:

Passing yards and TDs: Stabler
