Oakland Raiders: Yes, I'm Still Defending JaMarcus Russell

Jan 25, 2010 Full story: BleacherReport

Let me start off by saying that I understand JaMarcus Russell has his flaws: He lacks pocket pressence, ball security and his mechanics are sloppy.

I've been a Raiders fan since the 60's and what this team is going through now is shameful. The o-line
and Jamarcus Russelll in particular. Robert Gallery can't block with a crap and Russell is a joke. When he came out of college I thought he was the next great Raider QB instead we got an overweight
individual with no pride or love for the game. He just cares about money.

and he has growing up to do!(LOL) he's lazy overweight and has alot of potential! potential is the word. not saying he is going to make it but he has the capability if he wants it. most of the year last year and the year before it was all about money. he thought he'd just come in and he would be the star. towards the end he was critisized and realized that he was not what he though he would be or the way it would be. i'm sure he was slapped in the face and told to wake up that he needed to learn the nfl way. he showed signs of reading the playbook and hard work but it was a little to late! yeah it sucks. i don't like it! but he will be playing here again and no matter what he is going to fight for his job. they will not give it to him? but hue jackson will make a difference for the team even if jbust russell fails!

he has potential! he has to want it and he will go after it this year and he will stay #2 until he gets his chance again. BUT good luck to him, our offensive line will get better this year!

I agree with you about Russell...Gallery I disagree with you on...The biggest joke of a draft pick we've had lately has been Butterfingers Heyward-Bust. He had 9 catches for 124 yards and a TD in 11 starts before a foot injury ended his season. Those are the kind of stats you expect from a starting receiver in 1 game, not one season. There were many times that Russell hit him on target and he dropped the ball; a dropped pass is the receiver's fault, not the QB's. I don't like JBust or BHBust and if I could remove any two players from the team right now it would be those two.
