Al Davis

Pioneer. Rebel. Visionary. Say what you want about the controversial career of Raiders owner Al Davis, but the NFL lost a true icon with his passing Saturday. The younger generation of NFL fans might not believe this, but Davis' Raiders own the third-highest winning percentage (.568) in the NFL since 1963, behind the Dallas Cowboys (.592) and Miami Dolphins (.573). "Just win, baby" and "Commitment to Excellence" weren't merely sayings. They were a way of life for Davis, as this photo essay hopefully shows.
