Just saw that on yahoo homepage.

He was married to Rose of WDSU weather.

Stabler did well for us way back with George Rogers and that group.
So-so but then the league was so different , smaller, etc.

Stabler made his name and career way back then.
That is too bad he died...colon cancer and not the "sauce" alcoholism.

Re: Raiders, Alabama legend Ken Stabler dies at 69

Whenever I've heard the term "gunslinger" in regards to the NFL, I've thought of Kenny Stabler (OAK) ... not for his prolific passing, but because he was at the helm of those infamous Raider teams of the '70s ... not just anyone coulda' quarterbacked those teams ... R.I.P.

One of the greatest QB's of all time, the thing that stands out with me the most was his leadership skills. RIP Kenny, and prayers go out to his family!

R.I.P Snake.

I don't think he's in the HOF. He should be.
