Legendary NFL quarterback Ken Stabler passed away on Wednesday of colon cancer. He was 69.
Stabler is best remembered for his days with the Oakland Raiders and was one of the best QBs in the game during the 1970s and was up there with the likes of Roger Staubach, Fran Tarkenton, and Terry Bradshaw. Speaking of the Steelers, if not for Franco Harris catching “The Immaculate Reception” (a.k.a. “The Immaculate Deception”), Stabler would have led the Raiders to one of the greatest comebacks in NFL history in 1972 after filling in for a struggling Daryle Lamonica.
