We need to play Russell so we can see how bad of a mistake he is. We can then figure out who to waste our next draft pick on. Of course after all the money we gave Russell, we probably can't afford another low first round draft choice.

With two games left in the season Kiffin should give Russell at least one start.

Kiffin made a good point by saying that this team needs to learn how to win, but the Jamarcus Hold out is what messed us up the most this year. Quarterback was a major offseason issue and every quarterback that was brought in had to learn a new system, so that made it even harder for the offense, but I've seen a lot of progress and I think Russell will be effective as a starter next year.
