I am not new to this site but new to posting here, I am on many Raider sites and only post on one this makes 2.. Now I am not boasting but I want to let folks know a little about myself, I have had the good fortune of spending 7 years working with (not for) the Raiders in an outside capacity, I worked with Coaching staff, and Director of the Riaderetts I have also worked with AFL teams in the same capacity, I say this so folks know I am not just an arm chair fan, I have been around football and football people for many years. This is a great time to be a Raider fan and I say that with a heavy heart because getting to meet Mr. Davis and his family and becoming friends with Carol (his wife) Mr. Davis will be missed, a great man who did great things and still to the day he died could evaluate and find talent to bring to the team whether it be in coaching ranks or in the college Al Davis could see talent. Now this team is making great strides at at very fast pace and I'm not sure that even some of the media understand the turn around and the quality of what is happeneing and I for one am overly excited for the up coming season to see what we can get done.. The point to my post is this, I read post on this site and I wonder what are people looking at and what the hell are they thinking.. Now all this fuss about DHB and statements made by someone named TERRLL RANDALL?? Now I do not need to explain that when somebody like Reggie McKenzie comes in and cleans house and guts "out of whack contracts" non productive players, over payed non impact players do not make the cuts as we can plainly see. Now to say DHB is not a true reciever is an ignorant and uneducated statement to say the least and this is how I will prove it, I will give a list of players that are considered TRUE RECIEVERS in the NFL that DHB out produced on the field.
|Darrius Heyward-Bey, WR||OAK||64||115||975||15.2||4||58||14||65.0||1||282||44|

|27||Jabar Gaffney, WR||WSH||68||115||947||13.9||5||45||14||59.2||1||184||50|
|Pierre Garcon, WR||IND||70||134||947||13.5||6||87||9||59.2||2||360||42|
|29||Jason Witten, TE||DAL||79||117||942||11.9||5||64||15||58.9||1||358||47|
|30||Dez Bryant, WR||DAL||63||103||928|
Now some of these reciever scored more TD's and some less but the facts are this, DHB is one of the hardest working, young RECIEVERS in the NFL and this is not an OPIONION but a FACT. Now when Reggie McKenzie keeps you and the coach publically says "We've got enough good football players that we can spread the ball around. We're not concerned with who catches 75 or 100 balls. I'm concerned about how well he's blocking on the running plays, I'm concerned about how well he's running routes and I'm concerned about his mindset going into the season. So far I've been pleased." then I would tend to believe them then someone the appearently could not spot a true WIDE RECIEVER if he saw one. This is just my opinion on how completely full of sh!t some Raider fans are.
