I have no comments regarding this article expect to point out my disagreement with a statment that seems to be the prevalent thought regarding Russell. The following "... He's a big-armed quarterback who needs receivers who can reliably get open 10 yards or more down the field." First and Foremost, Russell needs accuracy, regardless of the WR pattern. The ability of Aikman (strong aremed and accurate) to hit Irvin consistently on slant pattern to move the chains carried that team offensively to Super Bowl victories. Second, the ability to make all the throws. The toughest throw can be a seven yard out. Can you do it without the Big Arm? Not likely. The Raiders would bebetter off scheming shorter patterns with picks and improving Russells ability to hit them in stride or read the coverage and throw it to the back shoulder etc. on static patterns. Back to the author's original thought; Russell, Big Arm, throw down field as the primary objective. This is very easy to defend. Just blitz the QB.
