    My all-time favorite Raider LB. Perfect name for a linebacker. Six years in Oakland. Played with a massively padded forearm that he just loved to club folks with. When the Raiders snapped Miami's 18-game unbeaten streak and a talk-show host asked Larry Csonka "what happened," Csonka replied:

    "Gerald Irons happened."

    Raiders traded him to Cleveland not long after that, and that's where he spent most of his career. Always hated that.

    When a read this I mist have been thinking about Grant. Gerald was a couple of years before I started watching football. RIP.
