Some Thoughts Regarding Raiders Ken Stabler and Clarence Davis

May 7, 2020

Ken Stabler was elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2016. I have many great recollections of QB Stabler and running back Clarence Davis.

In the 1972 AFC Divisional Playoff Game, known for the “Immaculate Reception” that won it for the  Pittsburgh Steelers, Ken Stabler “The Snake” ran around the left end and went 30 yards for a touchdown.  That gave the Raiders a (7-6) lead late in the game. Clarence Davis happily “greeted” Stabler after the play.

Much more in ’74 and ’76 involving Ken and Clarence that I will detail in upcoming posts.

So many “Fame” voters are overly impressed by statistics and “compilers.”

Those voters do not properly appreciate “impact,” which Ken Stabler had in great measure.
