These numbers aren't worth cheering for, Raiders fans
The 2014 Oakland Raiders went 3-13. But the Raiders didn’t just get terrible overnight. FOX Sports senior NFL Writer Alex Marvez provides a by-the-numbers look at the franchise’s failings, issues and history since its last winning season in 2002.
1 -- 1,000-yard receiving seasons since 2003

3 – Players still active from the 2002 Raiders squad that reached Super Bowl XXXVII
Kicker Sebastian Janikowski is the only one who has spent the past 12 years with the franchise. Safety Charles Woodson was with Green Bay from 2006 to 2012 before returning to Oakland in 2013. Punter Shane Lechler left for Houston in 2013.

7-18 – QB JaMarcus Russell's record as a starter from 2007 until his 2009 release
As the No. 1 overall pick in the 2007 draft with a rookie contract that paid him almost $40 million, Russell is arguably the biggest draft bust in NFL history.
8-8 – Oakland’s record in 2010 and 2011, the franchise’s best marks since 2002
The good news for the Raiders is they have a ways to go before matching the New Orleans Saints’ 20-season stretch of finishing at or below .500 from 1967 to 1986.

9 – Different head coaches since 2003
Jack del Rio is the ninth head coach since 2003. He replaced interim man Tony Sparano, who replaced the fired Dennis Allen on an interim basis in early October. Sparano joins the disposed Bill Callahan, Norv Turner, Art Shell, Lane Kiffin, Tom Cable and Hue Jackson on what has proven the NFL’s most active coaching carousel in recent history.

16 – Consecutive losses
The streak spanned parts of the last two seasons. The franchise record is 19 during the 1961 and 1962 seasons. The NFL’s two worst streaks are held by Tampa Bay (26 games, 1976-1977) and the Chicago Cardinals (29 games, 1942-1943, 1945), but there were mitigating circumstances. The Buccaneers were an expansion franchise; the Cardinals were wracked by player shortages because of World War II.

18 – Starting quarterbacks since 2003, the NFL’s highest total in that span
Kerry Collins had the most starts with 27 in 2004 and 2005. Matt Flynn, Kyle Boller, Marques Tuiasosopo and Andrew Walter had one apiece.
21 – Postseason berths for the Raiders from 1967 to 2002
That includes three Super Bowl wins and two other appearances. Such success prompted the Commitment to Excellence motto that the franchise still touts today.
39-93 – Oakland’s record from 2003 until owner Al Davis’ death on Oct. 8, 2011
Davis had the final say on all of the team’s personnel decisions.
199 -- The amount of points by which opponents outscored the Raiders in 2015

97 – Players drafted by Oakland between 2003 and 2014
Three of them have earned Pro Bowl honors while with the Raiders – fullback Marcel Reese, cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha and tight end Zach Miller. Jon Condo, one of hundreds of college free agents signed by Oakland during that span, was chosen as a Pro Bowl long snapper in 2009.
2006 – The last season Oakland fielded a player with double-digit sacks
That year, Derrick Burgess had 11 and Warren Sapp 10.

$8 million – How much Oakland paid DeAngelo Hall ... before cutting him way too soon
The Raiders made the short-sighted decision to release the cornerback eight games into a six-year, $72 million free-agent contract that he signed in the 2008 offseason. Hall subsequently signed with Washington and became a cornerstone starter with a Pro Bowl appearance in 2010.

$970 million – Estimated value of the franchise, according to Forbes Magazine’s 2014 rankings
Although that represents a 40.6 percent increase of $394 million from Forbes’ 2003 franchise value ranking, the Raiders still face a shaky financial future because of an unsettled stadium situation that may prompt the team to leave Oakland.
