100 Days of 100 Jersey Numbers - 6

Posted Jan 20, 2014

Day 7 of our series. Only five players have worn jersey No.6 in Raiders history, two of those five temporarily, and one who really made it his own.

For a total of 100 days, we'll take a look at the men who have played for the Raiders jersey number by jersey number. This series will highlight some of the greatest players in NFL history. In some cases, the player and jersey number are synonymous. In other cases, the jersey number represents sustained greatness at a particular position. Some players are superstitious about their jersey number. Whatever the case may be, jersey numbers are an important part of the fabric of professional football.

Only five players have worn jersey No.6 in Raiders history, two of those five temporarily, and one who really made it his own.

George Jakowenko – K – 1974

Jakowenko was active for six games in 1974 and served as a kickoff specialist. He did not attempt any field goals or extra points. Hall of Famer George Blanda was th Raiders primary placekicker in 1974. Jakowenko went on to play the 1976 season with the Buffalo Bills.

Joe Nedney – K – 1999

Nedney joined the Raiders for the last three games of the 1999 season and replaced Michael Husted. He made 5 of 7 field goal attempts and 13 of 13 extra point attempts. He is best remembered for the game-winning kick in overtime of the 1999 season finale against the Kansas City Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium that knocked the Chiefs out of playoff contention.

Marc Wilson – QB – 1980-87

Wilson (pictured) was selected in the first round of the 1980 NFL Draft. He played in 96 games with 50 starts. He completed 871 of 1,666 pass attempts for 11,760 yards, 77 TDs and 86 INTs.
