i was reading somehere that DHB needs to be a 1thou yd receiver for him to get a raise in oakland. if he becomes a 900yd receiver he is gonna want a raise and that ain't gonna happen. so, that may make him want to leave oakland sooner than later. but i personally believe DHB will play his heart out. he seems to want to prove a point that he was a good reason he was drafted at #7 before that other guy that went to the niners (LOL) we just go with the flow and hope for the best. after all, he is a RAIDER. he is now what we call family.

There was a time when we could've easily had at least 1 1000 yard receiver, but they constantly dropped passes, like the year Jerry Porter had 900 something yards; he dropped a lot of passes that year and had he held onto them, he would've had a 1000 yard season that year. I think as long as he catches all the passes thrown his way that are within his arms reach, he oughta have a 1000 yard season.

the guy is the most explosive receiver the draft has seen in a few years. That blazin ass 4.3 is the same in pads as it is on the track. Guy makes tough catches too. If he gets in the open field he IS going to take it the distance. Crabtree is overhyped. spread offense,4.7 speed (dont bring up another receiver who ran a 4.7) his qb had a pussy arm, which is why he made all the "tough" grabs, is a future winer like a TO type, but without the TO game. Our boy Bey is gonna be like a Randy Moss type, but a hardworker who shuts up and plays. Just give him a chance, Hes gonna fit in PERFECTLY with our offense, you'll see
