Jim beat out Archie Manning and Joe Theisman for the Heisman Trophy, but had an unsuccessful NFL career, and was considered washed up by the time he came to Oakland in 1978. In 1980, an injury to Dan Pastorini gave him the starters job, and at age 33, he led the Raiders to a Superbowl victory, and earned the MVP. He is only one of 11 QB s to have won two Superbowls. Seven of them are in the Hall of Fame, three are still active.

Hadl was the AFLs leading passer in both 1965 and 1968, and was a four-time AFL All-Star. In 1969, he was selected as the AFL All-Star Games Most Valuable Player. The other half of the Chargers potent passing/receiving tandem was Lance Alworth, the first American Football League player to be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Many observers believe that Hadl, who threw most of the passes that Alworth received, also belongs in the Hall of Fame.
