Shell lights torch

Owner Mark Davis continues to mend fences with ex-Raiders, with former coach and Hall of Fame left tackle Art Shell lighting the torch Sunday in honor of Al Davis.

Shell had a 56-52 record as the Raiders head coach from 1989-94, and was brought back in 2006 to replace Norv Turner after other hiring opportunities fell through.

The Raiders went 2-14 and Shell was fired after one season, feeling as if he never got an opportunity to rebuild the franchise.

    McFadden with his one-yard run helped kill that drive.

    Me to, I came on this to see what everyone would say. Shell was a Raider and yes I was mad he donned the nasty red but Shell was a REAL raider and i’ve been debating for years whether to get his jersey.
