    The Face of the Franchise

    Interested to see who you guys believe the player is that is the 'face of our franchise'. For example, when someone mentions the New England Patriots, nearly everyone links the name to Tom Brady. This is the same with Drew Brees and the Saints, Ray Lewis and the Ravens and so on... Who is the face of the Raiders? Do we have a 'superstar player'?

    We don't have a face for the team .
    Just a bunch of faces that should be on a wanted poster for stealing an old man's money .

    Simple answer...No.

    I'd venture to say that once this team starts to actually reflect what Reggie is trying to build and win on a more consistent basis, then a franchise player or face of the franchise will show up. Also, we may become a more "normal" team but a franchise player may still be a ways off. I think a franchise player shows up when a franchise isa stable, consistent winner. Think of Matt Stafford or Sam Bradford, they both play at a high-level most of the time and could be seen as the face of their franchises but Calvin Johnson and Steven Jackson could just as easily be seen as the face of their franchises, respectively.

    The Face of the Franchise

    Gotta be Carson he's our only man that shows up. Harder question would be face of the defense lol.

    Side note am I the only one that gets really pissed when I see the Raiders gear add on this page? I think me and DMC have some unresolved issues lol.

    Seabass. He has to be the longest tenured Raider(or close to it), and is probably our best player.

    2013 you will finally see the face of the team when Reggie makes his first pick for the Raiders with his 1st rd pick .

    So it is going to be more then likely one of these guys that will be looking at being the face of the franchise

    Bjoern Werner- DE,Sam Montgomery- DE,Manti Te'o- ILB,Barrett Jones-OG, Jake Matthews-OT ,Johnthan Banks-CB, Luke Joeckel- OT .
