DHB on the field, catching passes

By Jerry McDonald - NFL Writer
Tuesday, October 2nd, 2012 at 12:00 pm in Oakland Raiders.

The most notable sight at Raiders practice Tuesday was the sight of Darrius Heyward-Bey on the field, catching passes and looking very much like a receiver who will be cleared by the time play resumes following the bye week.

Heyward-Bey, knocked unconscious Sept. 23 against the Pittsburgh Steelers, was running and catching through warmups and drills. It is not known if Heyward-Bey has been cleared for contact and coach Dennis Allen is unavailable to the media Tuesday.

The Raiders practice Tuesday and Wednesday, then are off through Sunday.

Players who were not at practice Tuesday included tackle Khalif Barnes (groin) and corneback Shawntae Spencer (knee), both of whom are out indefinitely.

    So, according to Mistic, Raider QBs go like this:

    Donald Hollas (67% wins)
    Ken Stabler (lifetime 66% wins)
    JC (63% wins)

    Period. Scoreboard. Whatever.

    “Clearly based on KoolKell’s criteria, Donald Hollas is a better QB than Jason Campbell.”

    I have to agree with Dakota on this!

  • http://www.Raiders.com KoolKell

    NO I think the bottom line is Palmer will be starting an NFL game week 6 in Atlanta while Jason Campbell will be holding a clipboard standing on the sidelines backing up the ever so popular Jay Cuntler!

    doesnt matter you are just as retarded

  • alex7

    With Donald Hollas, Wade Wilson, and Jeff George each starting 3 games in 1999,

    Gruden got the Raiders off to a 7-3 start.

    Wow.

    Mistic – if you add Jason to this offense, sprinkle with salt and pepper, then bake at 350 for 20 minutes, do we now have a winning team? Be truthful. No propaganda.

    ___________________________________________________

    Kinda depends on…Would JC have resigned for $4-5M a year opposed to Palmer’s $12M?

    The extra $8M+/- could have gotten us a TE and CB or other positions of need.

    A first round draft pick talent would have been nice this year (with Reggie drafting)
    ===============

    pointless make believe scenario

    hue did this, it cost him his job and cost us the playoffs this season

    THANKS HUE

  • RaiderLen

    If Palmer goes down to injury, and the team is still floundering, I’d skip right past Leinart, and run TP out there.

    and going 6-10 down the stretch with Kyle Boller would’ve REALLY sat well with the Nation, too.

    well, could’ve got us; Ryan Tannenhill, Morris Claiborne or WR Michael Floyd

    tells you either Gruden was good, or teams were a lot worse back then.

  • 505raiders

    dont think pryor should be starting got to take baby steps soon as the games out of reach why not put him in for a quater

    the atlanta game has a strong possiblity of getting out of hand quick

    but by midseason if were still clinging on to 1 or 2 wins than why not start him and gameplan to his strengths why waste time

  • alex7

    I would rather have last year’s FIRST meaningful playoff-possible season in 10 years over Tannenhill, Claiborne, or Floyd.

    Hue, thank you for the trade that gave us our most enjoyable season since 2002.

  • RAIDERMAN99

    Saw enough of JC to know he’s a mediocre QB at best.

    No point in arguing about it. He’s holding a clipboard in Chicago now anyways, right ?

    Now if you tell me the Raids just hired JC to be the OC and fired Krappy… that would be something worth discussing.

    New regime sux!

    Had Hue just showered, waited and calmed down and not ranted on about “I want even more control”, he’d probably would still be here.

    __________________________________________________

    True, but in my world we would have resigned Bruce Gradkowski, he would have been a “nice” backup up QB and minded his P&Qs, no B.S. There would have been no Boller!

    I bet even Mistic could stomach Bruce G. as the backup QB over the Palmer trade…

  • Super Charged

    Lets hope Palmer can win more games and the Faiders resign him to a huge CONTRACT . I want to see more INTs’ and 0-10 3rd down conversions ! Here’s to 10 more years of being losers !

  • RaiderDanny

    Agree

  • http://www.AmyTraskshouldbeonmountrushmore.com Whats a Drexl?

    Just took a stroll up the Ave, calling random fools “bra”,
    I could only get one hobo to respond, and he told me to fug off, he didn’t need no “bra” to strap up his man boobs.
    said they were tight no “bra” necessary.

    Freaking hilarious.

    That is crazy talk! You put Leinart out there, he will only last a quarter anyways and get hurt and go on IR…

  • RaiderDanny

    My scouting! Geno was awsome but must have an awsome line as well! Could use all these! Austin Wr or the other from VT! The two LB from Wisconsin are dynamite! The fullback from Idaho to backup DMC

  • raiderinparadise

    Easiest way to kill the J. Campbell arguement? Runing game was top 5 in league.

    Now dead last less than 61 a game rushing

    Geez.

    Seems I’m the only one with any optimism that the season can be salvaged by DA making on HONEST assessment of things and “adjusting” things based on that.

    I am still holding out a glimmer of hope that DA will do this.

    If I see McClain starting against Atlanta, or if later in the week we hear DA say; “Well, we carefully analyzed the first 4 games and I don’t see anything we need to change as far as our schemes or playcalling, and our defense just needs to make plays and execute better”. Then…I give up the season.
    ————————————-
    I co-sign.
    It is all about wheter DA really gives an “honest assesment”

  • truepain

    This is a team game, from the coaching staff to the players, this is a team effort. Trying to blame individuals, such as CP3, is not fair or accurate.

    CP3 playing hard out there, as are a handful of other players.. unfortunately, there is a divide between the offense and coaching staff.

    Without a running game and oline, we don’t have the scheme, talent, or intelligence on the sidelines to pull this off.

    I feel like the coaching staff is trying to figure things out as they go.. Dennis Allen looks in over his head, and Greg Knapp looks oblivious.

    Raiders are missing that mobility at qb bad.. Im talking about being able to step up in the pocket . .escape pressure and get the first down when needed
    ————————————————–
    Come on man!!! Dmac can’t even hit the hole and he is supposed to be an ELITE running back.

    I do not care if Bo, Hershel, or Barry Snders was our back right now the play starts 3 yds in the backfield and the O-line is getting blown the fvck up.
    Come on now!!

  • ArtilleryShell

    O-line is the most important part of a team in my humble opinion. They make below par RBs and QBs look average, help the defense by controlling the ball and make 3rd down conversions possible. QB is next, as he has to inspire the team with his play and leadership.
    We allowed Tom Cable to get rid of OL Kevin Boothe and he is still in the league playing for the Giants. A great coach builds a system around and that fits their talent. A system coach often works with journeyman type players and gets average or better overall production from them as a unit, but generally does not develop individual talents to their max
