Raiders Rookie WR Heyward-Bey Back on the Field

darrius1 According to the Oakland Tribune, WR Darrius Heyward-Bey had a practice that made his drop-filled opening sessions of a week ago seem like a distant memory. After taking a day off with a sore toe, Heyward-Bey caught everything that was thrown to him, including a difficult over-the-shoulder deep pass along the sideline from Charlie Frye that required a difficult in-flight adjustment. …

“I thought maybe this was Darrius’ best day in camp,” Head Coach Tom Cable said. “Caught the ball well, caught everything, the underneath, the over the top, the big ball on the sideline, the one-handed catch. Those (help) his confidence. We want to keep that coming.”

Hopefully DHB can continue to grow on his good day at practice and become the target that JaMarcus Russell will need this year for the Raiders to do well. By the way, how is Michael Crabtree coming along across the Bay? Did Al Davis know something that the rest of the NFL did’nt when he picked DHB over Crabtree?

All the flack that Oakland took for taking DHB over Crabtree and who is on the field ? This move may turn out to be a very smart on considering that some sources have Crabtree sitting out the whole season.. Let’s hope that DBH proves “the critics” wrong and shows why he was selected in Aprils draft before Crabtree.

    Keep the good news coming, DHB number three on the depth charts number one in your silver and black hearts. Remember the Browns reported a character issue with Crabtree a week before the draft which is why they didn’t trade their top guy and draft him.

    I live in Austin and we were all very well aware out here in the Lone Star State that Crabtree was a HUGE diva. I was very worried the Raiders were going to ignore that and draft him anyways, and when I read up on DHB I was absolutely ecstatic that they went for character over rep. DHB has a fantastic work ethic and exactly the kind of attitude it takes to be a great player in the NFL.

    No Way!!!! This guy has bust written all over him. BSPN told me so!!!!
    What they did not mention is, its a HOF bust in Canton!! No but seriously, Thank you MR. Davis for not drafting crabtree. I don’t care how good he is supposed to be, he is a biatch!!!

    People let’s not be so quick to say that DHB’s hands are so bad there is another recever in the NFL (T.O) who’s hands are not all that good and there’s not one team out there that won’t take him, if he shut’s his trap
