Daryle Lamonica, one of the Raiders' all-time greats, died at age 80, the team announced Thursday.

"The Raider Nation will forever miss his easy-going nature and warm smile. Our deepest condolences are with his wife Mary, son Brandon, the rest of the Lamonica family, teammates and friends," the team said in a statement.

Lamonica, who was known as "The Mad Bomber," still holds the team's single-season record for touchdown passes which he set in 1969, when he had an AFL-leading 34 scoring tosses. He started 84 games for the Raiders from 1967-73. A two-time first-team All-Pro selection, Lamonica complied a 62-16-6 record with the Raiders and led the franchise to five playoff appearances as a full-time starter.


In total, Lamonica played 12 NFL seasons with the Bills and Raiders. His 16,655 passing yards with the Raiders ranks fourth all-time in the franchise's history.
"Courage; Generosity; Fairness; Honor; In these are the true awards of manly sport."

Still trying to figure out how making people pay to watch a network that they won't watch for free was ever a good idea.

Adreian Payne dead at 31.  Of course, he played his college  ball at Michigan St.  Looked like for a while WVU might land him.

Those teams had such a type. Unreal ground game (I think it was outside zone), Wisconsin-esque QB play, suspect defense and kind bad close game luck. 

Man they had some backs (and a coach who feels more strange as the years pass)
