Throwback Thursday – Tim Brown


This week, we revisit our conversation with Tim Brown on the heels of his long awaited and much deserved election to the  Pro Football Hall of Fame in January.

“It’s a big, big deal, it really is,” he told the Talk of Fame Network about making it as a Raider. “When I first got to the Raiders, a lot of people said I didn’t fit in with the Raiders’ organization. I was a good kid and clean cut and all that, and the Raiders weren’t known for that. But the one thing they were known for was playing good football.

“I always felt I could do what I needed to do for the Raiders on the football field, and, if I did that, then I was going to be a Raider. And that’s what I tried to do. I didn’t try to imitate them off the field. But I certainly tried to do that on the field. I think by playing great football I was quickly welcomed into the family. To add one more Raider to the notch (the Hall of Fame) … it’s a beautiful thing.”
