Every facet of the silver and black came together one last time to honor Raider Nation's late king, Al Davis.
Al Davis loved size. My goodness, he loved size. Everybody in the NFL loves size, of course, but Davis, who died Saturday at 82, took it to an entirely new level. If football is a bully sport — and it most assuredly is — then Al wanted his Raiders to be the biggest, baddest team of all.
"He was a man's man," said Hendricks, a Hall of Fame linebacker for the Raiders from 1975-83. "It's a sad day for Raider Nation. But the Raiders will live on. And so will Al's memory."
