Not to say I told you guys so right after he was Drafted #1 but I TOLD YOU he wouldn't make it because he couldn't read defenses amoung other things.
He might be able to find a job as a third QB for somebody. Maybe the Bears or Eagles might pick him up.

It's a chance you take with every draft pick. He either works out for you or he doesn't. When a player goes to your team you hope he works out for the better even if you don't like him.

It took Gallery and Asomugha 4 years to develop and Huff just finished his 4th year and didn't develop like they did. 4 years is too long and I think it was best to let Russell go after all the money he was paid for nothing and unwillingness to restructure.

That's the problem...He got all that money and didn't do jack shit to earn it. Russell probably got more money than all them you mentioned combined and they all have surperior stats than Russell except maybe Leaf. In my mind a bust is how much you got paid vs what you did to earn it.

prime example why there MUST be a rookie salary cap, at least for 1st round selections. I just don't understand the philosophy of bidding against yourself with these players and giving them astronomical amounts before a single snap. Goodell WILL fix this problem, guaranteed and this one will kick start it.
