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.
