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.

  • I thought Raiders should have traded into late 1st to get Carr. Got Gabe instead of 5th year option.

  • Cam is so easy to love without all the nonsense like this and the childish pressers. Let us love you Cam.

  • I think the problem with Cam is that he's so dang good that you just wish he could get out of his own way and dominate.
