    Re: thank you Al Davis

    It's funny that the Raiders drafted Bey with the #7 pick...

    We picked Troy Williamson with the #7 pick...

    With the pick we got from the Raiders...

    Crabtree's reaction was priceless when the Raiders passed on him.
    He looked so relieved.
    Imagine Crabtree's relief realizing he's playing across the Bay...of course, someone's got to get him the ball
    That is the issue in SF isn't it?
    Crabtree's the kind of player that'll make either QB look good though.
    Oakland and SanFran don't play in the regs but they do have a pre-season game in Oakland.

    osted by Aaron Wilson on April 25, 2009, 6:35 p.m. EDT

    The Oakland Raiders immediately drew sharp criticism for drafting speedy, inconsistent University of Maryland wide receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey, including a few jabs from Todd McShay of ESPN.

    Heyward-Bey is the fastest player in the draft with a 4.30 time in the 40-yard dash at the NFL Scouting Combine.

    However, Heyward-Bey displayed shaky hands for the Terrapins and would often double-catch the football or drop passes in the open field. He never produced on a consistent basis and was projected to be drated in the latter half of the first round.

    “Speed once again blinded Al Davis from seeing all other flaws,” Don Banks of SI.com wrote. “Heyward-Bey ran faster than any other pass-catcher at the NFL combine in February, but plenty of personnel men within the league told me they wouldn’t take him high because of his unreliable hands, and that he absolutely disappeared in far too many of his collegiate games. …

    Al Davis loves the deep ball, always has always will.
    The Raiders have had speed on their team before and it hasn't helped.
    I hate to bring up the name but, Moss was there and he couldn't help the team.
    One of many problems was and continues to be their O-Line.
    Without help there, the deep-ball won't exist.

    Grandpa Al's inflexibility is keeping the Raiders from moving forward as a quality organization... and I love it!

    I might have to change my namesake on PPO to avoid any possible misleadings that I am from oakland or am a raiders fan.
    "There are 3 things that sell in America:
    Violence, sex, and drugs.
    The only way you are going to make this game more appealing to the public than it was before is if there are on field orgies at halftime and the domes become massive opium dens."

    [Laughing] No worries here.


    Like me, all anyone has to do is read your posts to know otherwise.

    Skol!

    We just don't understand Al's plan.
    He was a charter member of the old AFL and he's putting a team together to win the NEW the AFL - the arena football league.
