DHB getting rave reviews in Indy

By Jerry McDonald - NFL Writer
Wednesday, September 4th, 2013 at 10:56 am in Oakland Raiders.

Over-the-top bravado was never Darrius Heyward-Bey’s style as a Raider.

It remains so as an ex-Raider.

“I have nothing bad to say,’’ Heyward-Bey told reporters in Indianapolis regarding the Week 1 matchup with his former team when the Colts host the Raiders Sunday at Lucas Oil Stadium.

“It was a good experience,’’ Heyward Bey said. “We had a lot of good times and some difficult times. I had a lot of great teammates, great coaches. I learned a lot over there.’’

The No. 7 overall pick in the 2009 NFL draft, Heyward-Bey, due $7.7 million in salary, was relased after four seasons during which he caught 140 passes for 2,071 yards and 11 touchdowns.

Instead, he’ll make $3 million for one season with the Colts, where he will start opposite Reggie Wayne and have a stable quarterback situation with starter Andrew Luck.

Luck, speaking with Bay Area reporters by conference call, called Heyward-Bey “a really awesome teammate. A tireless worker. It’s been very impressive. I think he’s going to do great things for us this season.

Colts coach Chuck Pagano agreed.

“He’s been outstanding from the first day he walked in the building until this morning’s walk-through,’’ Pagano said. `He’s been unbelievable. He’s an extremely hard worker who did not miss a day of our offeseason program.

“I’d be shocked if he doesn’t have an outstanding season.’’

    It’s NEVER the right decision to start the season with the worst passer in the NFL.

    We sure have the #32 qb now.

    Actually I don’t call him a QB.

    He’s a new position I call EB. Electro Back.

    Lets draft a 3rd string QB in the 4th round= Clueless!

    Lets trade for a backup QB and give him $6.5 million= Clueless!!

    Lets hire Knapp= Clueless!

    Lets keep an extra punter and 4 QBs for 24 hours, and cut a young pass rusher with potential= Clueless!

    Clueless Monkeys!!!!

    our first 3 picks will be starters by the end of the year, butler is your slot receiver and kasa rivera robinson and McGee will be heavy contributors

    not too shabby in his first draft having a pick within the first two rounds

    Based on Pryor’s history of low completion percentages I’m not so sure he can beat that 54% mark.
    =================

    what “history” are you refering to?

    1 nfl start and preseason games?

    he complted 65% of his passes coming into the nfl where he had extended playing time as 3 year starter

    that is a better look at his “history” than 1 nfl start

  • http://www.christianitydisproved.com/ Silverandblack666

    “I honestly believe that although MF is not a scrub, the RAID offense would do nothing with him as the QB and would be virtually unwatchable.”

    Pryor will be exciting for a week or two then it will be depressing to watch no matter who is in at QB.

    Missdick thinks if one of his “teachers” told it to him, it must be true.

    He believes things like verifying facts for books is a trick of the white man.

    So no proof of this TR quote exists but it’s true cuz missdick says it true.

    And Pryor is more talented than Luck.

    Good luck on ur Idiot Express to Destruction (c) guys.

    24: It was hard to tell, we were pretty poor talent-wise on D last year. I mean our CB’s were garbage, Gio was subbing for Huffy. Slolando was stinking up the middle. Rookie Miles Burris was playing every down.
    And our DLine was a cr@p sammich esp after Seymour quit.

    So hard to judge Tarver under those c’stances.

    But I watched Charles Woodson show blitz like 8 secs before Wilson/Wallace took the snap. He knows better.
    It’s like he was TRYING to show blitz but then he timed it all wrong and went anyway. Just a junk show…

  • RaiderRockstar

    @silver

    you’re pretty stacked at WR, but so am I

    we’re both a little thin at RB.. we’ll see what happens as the FF season progresses

    maybe we can explore that Palmer trade again in a few weeks?

    there’s no way of telling how good or great they’ll be, but starting left tackle, best corner, and best lb in 3 picks is pretty good

    plus kasa and rivera look like they’ll be complete te’s by years end while robinson is our best pass rusher and butler may be our best wr by years end

  • RAIDERMAN99

    Can anyone tell me what TP’s QB rating against the Seahawks would have been if Mastrud doesn’t drop the easy catch that should have resulted in a first down on the first series, and if DMoore doesn’t drop the perfect back shoulder pass up the right sideline which should have been another first down ?

    I’m pretty sure someone out there has the formula and can figure it out.

    I only bring this up to show how fkng moronic it is to go on and on abt TP having a 9.9 QB rating that game.

    I watched the game. I KNOW TP played well with the exception of the underthrow to Ford.

    I don’t THINK he played well.

    I KNOW he played well.

    Anyone that watched that game and thinks differently, or that brings up the 9.9 passer rating as proof that he didn’t, doesn’t know his azz from his elbow or jackschit abt football.

  • the famous dr robert

    Sure racism kept blacks from playing qb. A long time ago.

    Vestiges of still around? I suppose with stupid coaches.

    But just like with Al Campanis, that sh1t is history.

    And it had to do with basic racism, nothing to do with Teddy Roosevelt secretly telling everyone blacks shouldn’t play QB.

    This is ur leader Pryor Brigade.

    Feel like getti g off the crazy train yet?

  • REALLIONAIREB

    I’m hold my judgement on Reggie Mac but this is my honest opinion I kno every GM wants his on guy but for us to get rid of hue and bring a defensive minded coach in lik DA when this league is dominated by offense was a set back for us and I called it.Not saying we had to retain hue(But I thought he deserved anotha year with a real Dee) but at least bring in a guy who is known for offense because the way the league has change da Dee is playin behind da 8-ball can’t touch WR got wait until they catch the ball get 2 feet down look at you then it’s cool to hit them I mean are you serious…defenses will struggle to stop offenses long ass Godell is promoting touch football out there and Reggie wld be wise to adjust to go dells vision for his NFL

    ‘the quarter back represents the founding fathers of amerikkka. he represents the president of this country, a position a black man will never attain because that represents leadership, decision making, power and authority”

    roosevelt being racist and aying the foundation for what the qb position would be during his famed football reform which included the invention of the qb position and the forward pass.

    “I’m watching the NFLN this morning and they’re discussing Matt Flynn losing the starting gig for the second straight season.

    While they’re talking about it, they’re showing MF lowlights from the Bear game.

    Basically MF throwing picks, getting sacked, and showing no ability to avoid pressure.

    Now I don’t think MF is terrible. I think he can play well in the right situation.

    However, this is definitely not the right situation for MF.

    I honestly believe that although MF is not a scrub, the RAID offense would do nothing with him as the QB and would be virtually unwatchable.

    Don’t see the RAIDS winning many games with TP at QB either, but there’s no doubt in my mind that the decision to start TP from the get-go is absolutely the right one.”

    Sad but true. Some people argue like Matt Flynn played like Joe Montana for us in the pre-season. Maybe you lie about watching the games. MF played like hot garbage in the PS. EVERYBODY saw it. Maybe his arm was hurt. I am disparaging the guy but he was not good….
