The Best (and Worst) QB for Every NFL Franchise

Best: Ken Stabler — Las Vegas Raiders

Raider Stats: 130 games, 96 starts (69-26-1), completed 1486-of-2481 passes, 19,078 yards, 150 TD, 143 INT

‘Snake’ Stabler edged Rich Gannon out as the Raiders’ best quarterback. The Alabama native was a fan favorite with his swashbuckling style of play — along with a very colorful personality. The four-time Pro Bowler led the Raiders to a Super Bowl victory over the Vikings in 1976. He was also recognized as a two-time First-team All-Pro before retiring. A member of the Hall of Fame, Stabler unfortunately passed away in 2015. He was only 69 years of age.

Worst: JaMarcus Russell

Raider Stats: 31 games, 25 starts (7-18), completed 354-of-680 passes, 4,083 yards, 18 TD, 23 INT

A classic Al Davis pick. Russell was praised heavily for having as strong an arm as anyone had seen. Rumors had Russell throwing the ball 80 yards in the air…from his knees. Drafted No. 1 Overall from LSU, Russell was a colossal disaster in Oakland. In 25 career starts, Russell went 7-18. His career completion percentage was only 52.1-percent. He threw more career interceptions (23) than touchdowns (18). Not only was his accuracy a major problem, but Russell’s ability to stay in shape limited his ceiling considerably. After three years, Russell never played in the NFL again.
