you are so right njR1 but russell is a quitter! a lot of these first round (qb) bust's are still around trying to play elswhere and trying to prove a point that they are still good football players "matt leinart" for example and haven't given up. russell, gave up! got his money and ran and got even fatter! ryan leaf? took his money bought drugs and is in jail. now i don't recall if j russell went to jail but what has he been up to? today? good for him. he's making that effort to make a comeback. but me, me personally? i'm done with jamarcus russell! good luck to him, his supporters, whoever is helping him and whoever picks him up. does he deserve a last chance? sure. he's making the effort. it's been four years. but good luck trying to catch up to the nfl players of today.
i'm even done with this conversation! good luck.

Did a team have a towel boy opening? That's about all I think he'd be good for. Even then, he'd probably quit at that too

Everybody keeps saying he quit. The man was cut. He was drafted hung out to dry crucified & cut. Al Davis wasn't gonna blame himself. So Jamarcus played the scapegoat. Football is a team sport, not a 1 on 1 game. A QB must have at least 1 weapon & that weapon cannot be a tight end. They're to easy to take out the game. Thee man had nothing! I don't mind everyone's opinion about him personally. But dont base ur hatred off media hype. I watched all of these same talking points 3/4 years ago. My point is he wasn't given a fair chance.

He made some of the dumbest decisions I've ever seen. All he cared about was getting paid and his dumb decisions followed him off the field. I mean why do you launch a rocket ball when all you have to do is cross the line of scrimmage for a first down on fourth down and have more than enough room to do so? Thats why Tom Cable benched him which led to him getting cut
