Congradrulation Al Davis, your city hates you. But I have a unique persective on my favorite player, Darrius Heyward-Bey. I am growing up in Maryland. I go to St. Pauls, a school in the B conference of the MIAA. McDonough is a school in the A conference. Heyward-Bey is an alumni there. He dominated my Crusaders in his time, and dominated everyone else. He is a flat out jaw dropper.

Why his numbers lack: Crabtree-Harrell, Harvin-Tebow, and Maclin-Daniel. Not Heyward-Bey-Turner. Chris Turner could not even compete in his own conference on a regular basis much less on a national scale. He was double teamed throughout his career. Maryland should have brought in a better WR to take a guy off of Heyward-Bey. Give the credit to Maryland for this, they didn't give him the ball enough.

When he is in he is dangerous: 96 yard catch his freshman season, the unbelievable catch and run against VT last year. The kid is a machine. He is explosive whenever he touches the ball. End arounds, flys, even put him at tailback.

His work ethic: He has a tremendous work ethic. He has the desire to improve his route running.

Why he fits in with the Raiders: Jamarcus Russell needed a WR that can match his arm strength. Somebody to get down the field as quick as possible. Heyward-Bey fits here perfectly. He can also run after the catch. His presence will help McFadden in that he will take 2 DB down the field, and give more room to McFadden.
