Football Player
    (December 25, 1945-July 9, 2015)
    Born in Foley, Alabama
    Quarterback for the Oakland Raiders (1970-79), Houston Oilers (1980-81) and New Orleans Saints (1982-84)
    Four time Pro Bowl selection (1973-74,1976-77)
    NFL MVP and Offensive Player of the Year (1974)
    He was nicknamed 'the Snake.'
    Pro wrestler Jake 'the Snake' Roberts took his nickname from Stabler.
    During the closing seconds of an Alabama-Tennessee game, he lost count of the downs and deliberately threw a pass out of bounds to stop the clock on fourth down, ending the game with a 7-7 tie.
    He was responsible for the controversial 'Holy Roller' play, in which he deliberately fumbled the ball to avoid a sack, producing a last-minute touchdown for a 21-20 victory over the San Diego Chargers (September 10, 1978).
    A bench warrant was issued for his arrest for falling behind on his child support payments (1980).
    He was arrested three times for DUI (1995-2008).
    In high school, he led the football to team to an overall 29-1 record, averaged 29 points a game in basketball and was good enough in baseball to receive minor-league contract offers from the New York Yankees and Houston Astros.
    He guided the Raiders to their first ever Super Bowl victory (1977).
    He reached 100 wins in only 150 games, a mark bettered only by Joe Montana and Tom Brady.
    Gene Upshaw said, 'When we were behind in the fourth quarter, with our backs to our end zone... we could look in his eyes and you knew - YOU KNEW - he was going to win it for us. That was an amazing feeling.'
