It's more than obvious that you guys are geared in opposition of Russell. Fine, it's your opinion! I just explained that Russell was 280lbs coming out of the draft. There was no way they drafted him with the intention of him being a mobile QB. Gradkowski played a little better because he was mobile. How does that reinforce your theory? A person fumbling 15 times in 1 1/2yrs only can signify 1 thing, the line was horrific. I've presented you with fact after fact, you've presented me with your opinion. AD drafted a bust for a LT in Gallery, & he was afraid to use another high pick on a much needed offensive lineman, preferably LT. Russell's struggles was the result of a bad org headed by our late, great owner Al Davis. He was delusional in his last maybe 8yrs! Y'all know this & will still put blame on Russell. He was a victim of AD mismanaging plain & simple. He was drafted because he had all the tools. The Raiders didn't cater to his tools, they wanted him to cater to their deficiencies!Yup, and i agree, Oakland didn't have much in terms of support players. But, Gradkowski did outplay him when he got his chances, which reinforces my theory that it was 60/40 or 70/30 JaMarcus sucking more than anything else.
