Pagano, Luck rave about Heyward-Bey

ALAMEDA — Wide receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey was one of numerous veterans purged from the Raiders roster this offseason.
It just so happens that Heyward-Bey landed in Indianapolis, so his first game in a uniform other than the one of the team that selected him in the first round of the 2009 NFL draft will be against that team Sunday
With the Raiders, Heyward-Bey was expected to play a prominent role in the offense, in large part because they lacked a legitimate No. 1 receiver.
For the Colts, Heyward-Bey will be able to take a back seat to Reggie Wayne and carve out a niche in a well-rounded offense.
Colts head coach Chuck Pagano and Colts quarterback Andrew Luck make it clear that getting Heyward-Bey in free agency was rather fortuitous.
“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 single day of this preseason or the offseason program.
“He’s a football junkie. He has athleticism and speed and those types of things. He’s done really well here, and I’d be shocked if he doesn’t have an outstanding season.”
Those who followed Heyward-Bey’s less-than-stellar career with the Raiders won’t be surprised by the high praise heaped upon him for his work ethic, speed and ability.
They might be taken aback by Pagano prediciting an “outstanding” season. After all, Heyward-Bey averaged 35 receptions for 518 yards and slightly less than three touchdowns for the Raiders.
Luck made it sound as if the Colts signed the next Marvin Harrison.
“A really awesome teammate,” Luck said. “Tireless worker. Very, very hard worker. It’s been very impressive. I would say he’s got all the athletic attributes. He’s a football player. He’s going to do great things for us this season. Personally I’m very happy to get a chance to play with him.”

    LMAO.
    See?
    Hey, I apologize, everyone.
    I mean, toying with Slob is just so easy, and who can pass on a reason to laugh?

    I fluster him to where he begs off, and says “going to ignore you. bye”

    and ten minutes later, after a zing?

    Too easy.
    Ok, ok, for now, I’ve had my fun.

    and yes, it was fun :)

    Now beg me, bich.

    It’s funny to look at all the scores we have come up with.

    All the scores that have the Colts winning are blowouts.

    All the scores that have the Raiders winning are very close games. (With 2 exceptions)

    So…it’s either going to be a blowout or we’re barely going to win.

    I’m sifting through the free agent list and these are the OT’s that stand out to me…

    Jammal Brown
    Leonard Davis
    Jared Gaither
    Tony Hills (We cut him)
    Winston Justice
    Pat McQuistan
    Jason Smith
    Max Starks
    Ed Wang

    I’m not sure how well this site is updated but those are the guys that stood out to me. Any thoughts about any of these guys or any other’s on the list?

    ===============
    Didn’t we once have an OL named McQuistan? Paul McQuistan maybe?
    ================================================
    players signed this week are guaranteed salary next week not guaranteed

    we will sign some players next week for sure

    —–
    We had Paul, we had Ed, and we cut Hills. Starks was from Pitt and sucked ass. My parents are squealer fans so I’ve seen enough of him. Gaither is an injury waiting to happen and/or can be lazy on the field. As for the rest. Never heard of them.

    Just Win Baby – Yes…I believe we drafted Paul McQuistan. Pat McQuistan got drafted by the Cowboys I believe. They’re twin brothers but I could have them mixed up with who drafted who.

    “Look at me! Look at me!”

    “I’m gonna get people to pay attention to me by getting involved in this conversation somehow.”

    “I’ve got it! I will go after all of them! I will go after missdick, and priest, and especially that bad Dr. Robert! Ooooh, I just hate him. He makes me so mad, I could just…..oh, I could just stomp my feet!’

    “That way people will know who I am and they will think I’m part of things!”

    (“And maybe just maybe, I can get The Doctor to talk to me. He’s such a bad boy, he makes me secretly tingle.”)

    Tales from the countryside:

    A turd pokes his head out of the water, and to his surprise, finds a few turds floating atop the water. Knowing he refused to go down into the sewer, he intuitively knew the few other floating turds must have done the same thing. Well he thought, they must be tough little turds like me. Think I’ll ask them what keeps them afloat, maybe get a rise out of one of them. So he asks one of the floating turds what keeps you afloat? They all responded that they were full of hot air and that was trick. The trick was being full of hot air. Well the poor turd felt dejected after realizing he wasn’t tough after all. Just full of hot air. Eventually he just sank into the sewer, despaired and delusional. Such is the life of a poor little turd.

    circa 1940, Germany
