Former Oakland Raiders Head Coach John Madden
John Madden once served as the Oakland Raiders Head Coach, and helped the Silver and Black defeat the Minnesota Vikings 32-14 in Super Bowl XI. Recently, Madden chimed in on SiriusXM NFL Radio to talk about the Raiders season, and stated that the organization and fans should be proud of the team's success.
"You can't lose sight of the job that your team did, and what your coaches did, and organization did, and how well those players played and they're on the right road. They still won 12 games and it's good to see them back, and have them back," said Madden. "I think football… there's certain teams in the NFL that football is good when they're good, and I think, obviously I haven't been there, but I think the Raiders are one of them."
The Raiders will square off against the Houston Texans this Saturday at NRG Stadium in the AFC Wild Card game, kickoff starts at 1:35 p.m. PST.
