After a wait that many thought to be too long, former Oakland Raiders' quarterback Ken Stabler was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio, Saturday evening.

"Very, very proud for the family," said Head Coach Jack Del Rio prior to the enshrinement ceremony. "Very happy, very pleased for the Raider Nation. He's one of the all-time greats to play here. He did it and then he led this team, there were great teams. I think it's long overdue and I'm just happy that it did occur. It would have sure been nice for him to be there in person, but I know the family will be able to honor him and Raider Nation will be able to honor him. We're all obviously very proud, those of us that got a chance to see him play. It was special."

Hall of Fame coach John Madden prepared a video speech for "The Snake," as Stabler's grandsons, along with current Hall of Famers Fred Biletnikoff, Willie Brown, Dave Casper, and Art Shell were all on hand for No. 12's enshrinement.

With Stabler now officially enshrined in Canton, let's take a look at some of the highlights from his Hall of Fame career, as well as the events of Hall of Fame weekend.
