Raiders WR Darrius Heyward-Bey Misses Four Straight Practices Because He is Tired

Just imagine if I decided to stop writing posts for BSO because of fatigue.  Imagine if my excuse was dealing with Tebow’s fans and Cromartie’s kids took so much out of me, that I needed to watch the internet from the sidelines for a few days.

You would laugh at me right?

Because I get paid to report stories 24/7 day or night.

I take pride in what I do and I appreciate my readers, so I would never use “fatigue” as an excuse that is just soft to me.

I am a “Dollarnaire” not a multi-millionaire like Raiders Wide Receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey who is too tired to practice.  Here are the details:

Heyward-Bey didn’t have a catch in his preseason debut, but he did have a drop.  Jerry McDonald of the Oakland Tribune notes that Heyward-Bey has disappeared for long stretches on the practice field.

Lately, Heyward-Bey’s disappearance has been literal.  The second-year isn’t injured, but he’s missed at least four straight practices with “fatigue.”  Raiders coach Tom Cable says Heyward-Bey worked too hard this offseason and his legs are tired.

“I feel bad for the other guys out there and me missing,” Heyward-Bey said.  “But we’re working hard out there, so it takes a toll.”

Heyward-Bey is 23 years old.

I doubt that he worked harder than say Larry Fitzgerald or Andre Johnson in the offseason, but you don’t see them taking days off because they are tired.

I repeat Heyward-Bey is 23 years old.

Does he think he is Brett Favre or something?

Similar to JaMarcus Russell, if Heyward-Bey doesn’t produce this year (highly unlikely) the Raiders need to cut their losses and just admit that made a horrible decision in drafting him.

I wonder does he get cookies and a capri sun before his daily nap.
