"As a connoisseur of NFL Films for as long as I can remember, I loved anything and everything they did on the 1970s Oakland Raiders. Both sides of the ball were populated with Hall of Famers, but one guy that wasn’t a Hall of Famer was the offense’s most lethal weapon. Wide receiver Cliff Branch, number 21, was as fast as anyone in the NFL at the time. He averaged 17.3 yards per catch in his career and his best season was in 1976 when he averaged a whopping 24.2 yards per catch. That’s an astonishing number. Each and every game in Oakland-Alameda Coliseum, a sign hung in the end zone."
