OK statistically Leaf is the bigger bust, but JBust had more guarenteed money so that to me means that the Raiders had higher expectations for JBust than SD did for Leaf. Personally I remember watching Leaf when he was at Washington St against Michigan (who was named National Champion that year; this was before they actually played a championship game) in a bowl game and Michigan's Charles Woodson was Leaf's leading receiver that game. I knew Leaf would be a bust before he was ever drafted. I say Russell is the bigger bust because expectations were higher for him because of the "guaranteed money" vs "what they did" ratio.

I think if you are only counting the first team he is with...than Russell is, he was first round and was cut before Leaf was I believe. A #1 pick always has the most expectations... but really when push comes to shoe Russell is a loser and Leaf was a jack ass. It will be interesting to see what team picks him up, if his agent is worth a dam he will try to get him into a no BS club. like Pats or Colts or a club that will be all over his ass and not let him be a slacker.

One thing I like about Tom Cable is that he's trying to make the Raiders a "NO BS Club". I think that everyone on our team now is there because they want to win football games, not just to draw a paycheck. I hated to see Justin Fargas and Kirk Morrison go because they played their hearts our for us and bled Silver and Black, but that's all part of the business side of it...WIN in 2010!!!!!!!!
