check this out from gannon! you know, i liked gannon, i felt he was a big impact on the team. i give him credit for all he did, really i do. but tell me guys, did he give himself a little too much credit? everything here sounds to me like "i" "me" me, me, me! credit i give him but it was not all him. credit all who played the game and the main man, john gruden! also i agree the things he says about jamarcus russell and i do think that he(russell) should be gannon like. but russell has to do it himself. and from what i hear, he started already!

I like and agree with most everything he said. He was known as a drill sargent. Half the team didn't like his style when he first came in because he was kind of an ass....my way or the highway attitude. but then he started winning with that attitude....the team bought in....Thats what Russell needs...some structure.....he is too laid back about things and comes of uninterested.
I really wish Davis would over rule Herrera and allow Gannon to get in Russells head.

It pretty much takes winning to gain respect no matter who you are or what your style is.

Don't you guys still have hopes for Russell, after seeing Vince Young turn himself around? Alot of QB talent in this draft, still even in 2-3rd rounds....

Not fair comparison, comparing Young and Russell's situation....Young Played well for ahile in the NFL and then fell apart.....and then cam back playing well. Russell has yet to have a good game, much less play well. But to answer your question I haven't given up on him HOWEVER, It still needs to be an open competition because as the season ended Gradkowski deserves the starting spot. But if Russell works his tail end off and can work on scanning the field and making better decisions I wouldn't be surprised if he won the starting spot. Hue Jackson was brought in to work with Russell....no two ways about it. He has done some great things with QB's.....so training camp and preseason will tell a lot.
