To see Darrius Heyward-Bey go up and make catches with his hands now, or run under a deep pass like he did Saturday in overtime in Kansas City, one has to think the Raiders ' receiver responds well to criticism.

Nice article. I'm becoming a fan of DHB. Always been a fan of his work ethic. Win one for Al on Sunday DHB! He's always been a believer in you.

WHAAAAAAAAAT'S UP CAPTAIN?!!!
i have too, but i have thrown a little critizem at him. here and there. mainly cause he's been injured a lot. but he's comming a long just fine.
would you trade him or keep him?
if you trade him, he may get better. if you keep him he injures again and we're S.O.L!
i'd probably risk it and keep him?

There's no question...He's gotten better. I really like Denarius Moore too. I think this duo could free up Ford to focus on returns.

I always liked/stood behind DHB......at least for "one more year"....and it's beginning to pay off. He finally is starting to get it. Of course, it doesn't usually take 3 years for a receiver to develop LOL. I don't think he's THAT fast and he still has a little trouble getting open but he has good size and his hands are getting better. I don't think I would trade him....unless we could get our hands on a on big, great young WR like A.J. Green.....rookie going to the pro bowl.
I like Denarius Moore, too. He and Jacoby Ford are probably my favorite Raiders receivers. Not because of their speed or hands--it's because of their aggressive "go get it" approach to the ball. The hunger.

LOL....tailgate would be very cool. The Topix Forum Raiders Tailgate party.......online.

I'll be sitting in front of the PC to watch this game anyway. There's no way they show this game on TV around here....not with Cleveland playing Pittsburgh at the same time.

When Tom Cable started bragging about DHB's work ethic and strive to get better, I started to think he wasn't such a bad pick after all despite wanting Jeremy Maclin, Alex Mack or Michael Oher or somebody like Brian Cushing who could help shore up the Run D but now we've ended up with Aaron Curry who was off the board when we were up...Anyways I started to get discouraged DHB's rookie year when his rookie stats were what good receivers do in 1 game, not 1 season but considering the tailspin we were trying to get out of at the time, I'd say he's starting to pay off.
