not so fast! i saw j russell thrrowing a pass that still looked like jbustarussell pass.(LOL) but it was just one. i believe this guy could be the starter "IF" he continues to work hard. "IF" they opt not to let him go because of money reasons. the reason i say he could be a starter is , because he knows the RAIDERS! he knows the plays very well. this is his team. and now, all he had to do was to sharpen himself. coach cable says not to read into all that, what they saw in practice today."yesterday". so yeah, there is alot of work to do or to be done but one thing that still has everyone confused is, will they give russell his full contract or will they just release him and go with campbell or gradkowski.

Not SO Fast...you said heknows the plays so well? that was part of the problem with him last year...he couldn't absorb enough plays so we had to simplify everything for him...I hope he has worked on that this off season.

think about it RF, he may not have known them that well before but he "suposedly" stuck his head in the books in the offseason. he kind of knew them already and a little bit more studying he has to have gotten them down packed. we won't know that for sure till the season begins but i'm sure we will hear it till then. so yea, he knows the plays real well in my opinion. there is still alot of questions to be answered but, so far? i think it's still his team! shit, i almost forgot about gradkowski AND frye!(LOL) well, it's "their" team.

hey maybe russell competes and stays on the roster as a backup, maybe he gets cut, maybe he gets traded ??.. who knows.

in some respects the media are driving the 'cut' russell rumours, not the raiders.

maybe worst case al thinks he might get something for him, even if its a 5th round pick, who knows.

j russell looks alot better than ever. j campbell not looking so good, b gradkowski sat on the sidelines watching, c frye practicees with the first team. k boller a new addition to oakland practices. j russell looks like his old self, campbell starting to look like he could be the starter, gradkowski can't wait to get on the practice field to compete. russell and campbell could compete for the starting positon. j russell could be released soon, that would leave campbell and gradkowski to compete and boller and frye as backups. yea,
yea, it's confusing! time will tell, it's only obvious but i tell you, j russell is the one that they have to think about!

Because I am an Oakland Raiders fan not a fan of certain players. It's disappointing when we lose a guy like Kirk Morrison who busted his tail for us & led us in tackles ever since he joined us, but it's all part of it...WIN in 2010!!!!!!!!!!

i was writing this and look what happens! for those that think russell will not get a job again, i believe are wrong. somebody is licking their chops. they are thinking right now, he was a number one pick? maybe we can teach him our way. he's just a kid with a lot to learn still. Think about it? who could he go to? saints? he would be going back home. with vikings? favre's last year and russell being a #1 pick? vikings feel that they could develop him the way oakland did with jim plunkette after being released by the BUUUUAGH! cheatriots. but, good luck to whoever picks russell up. we're done with that deal!
