John Madden said in a statement, “I was head coach of the Raiders the entire time Kenny was there and he led us to a whole bunch of victories, including one in Super Bowl XI. I’ve often said, ‘If I had one drive to win a game to this day and I had a quarterback to pick, I would pick Kenny. Snake was a lot cooler than I was.
