Josh McCown will start at quarterback for the Oakland Raiders on Sunday in Jacksonville, with rookie JaMarcus Russell slated to come off the bench as a reserve.

Coach Lane Kiffin had considered giving Russell his first career start against the Jaguars and then bring in McCown to finish the game.

Russell, this year's No. 1 overall draft pick, has played five series in two games as a reserve so far.

Kiffin said Russell could come in during the first half and possibly might finish the game depending on how the situation played out. Read more

McClown starting, Jamarcus filling in, we lose, again and again and again ad infitum. Just play the rich kid and find out what he's got, we know McClown doesn't have shit, because he is. We're talking about one one of the most worthless turds that ever claimed to be an NFL QB.

KIffen is really starting to piss me off! Russell should be starting this week and next week! Also, this whole season this offense has been too conservative! ITs hard to win when you only allow like two throws over 20 yards a game!

Did you guys predict the Raiders would do as well as they did against the Colts? The Raiders had a good chance of tying the game, until the refs managed to look the other way in that crucial holding penalty by the Colts in the red zone (and the press doesn't remember anything about it). I give Kiffin high marks for bringing the team along as far as it's come, in his first year as a coach in the pros. Remember last year? I have a hunch that he's working with what he's got. That's an OL that's trying to get it's act together, WRs who have problems getting into the clear, a young defensive secondary, and 2 injured QBs. As far as Russel goes, Kiffin's doing the right thing in bringing him on slowly, considering he's a rookie and missed training camp. The Raiders aren't a together team...they're in rebuilding. That means they cannot be considered in the top third of the teams in the league, but they might have beaten the Colts last Sunday.

I really like Kiffin but i just don't understand what he's doing with Russell. It doesn't make sense.
