Following this weekends draft one this is clear . . . Al Davis is bat shit crazy. He passed on the best two receivers in the draft because Darrius Heyward-Bey had 4.3 second 40 yard dash time at the combine. Most experts had Heyward-Bay listed as the 4th best receiver available, behind Crabtree and Maclin. Now reasonable minds can disagree and debate the qualities of Crabtree vs. Maclin and which will make a better NFL receiver, but come on Al. Really? Drafting a receiver based almost solely on his 40 time at the combine?
If you follow the NFL, you know Al has been bat shit crazy for quite sometime: calling press conferences to fire coaches, moving the Raiders from Oakland to LA then back to Oakland, wearing track suits all the time, etc. The Career Sgt. has a theory on what is going on with Al.
The Al Davis mystery can be solved by watching the greatest movie ever made studying the documentary Weekend at Bernie’s. Can anyone actually verify that Al is alive? Could Andrew McCarthy and Jonathan Silverman, holding up Al’s cadaver, do any worse running an NFL team? If you have a better theory, I’d love to hear it.
