RIP Dr. Death: Skip Thomas Dies

Alonzo “Skip” Thomas known best by his nickname Doctor Death passed away from a heart attack today. He was 61.

Thomas had back-to-back six interception seasons in 1974 and 1975 and his fierce tackling earned him his nickname. He had 17 career interceptions and his career was entirely with the Oakland Raiders.

My prayers go out to his family and friends.

  • Hayden doesn't look much like he did in college. I feel like most of his issues are between the ears. Important factor, but strange deal.

  • Not if you watched his college tape. How would you even know a "reach" when you saw it? BS narrative.
