Jamarcus Russel is far from being a great quarterback. Or do we know? Raiders tickets holders don’t like Russell and probably never will. But then again, name me one NFL quarterback who could have thrived in the Banana Republic Al Davis calls an NFL franchise.
The Oakland Raiders have had no consistency in the front office, no steady hand at the rudder, absolutely no help from their scouting staff, and let’s face it, Al Davis forces too many important decisions down the throats of the people he hires and then fires. There is no way Russell could develop. I would go as far as to say that perhaps Jamarcus Russel skinned his own goose to get out of Oakland. Someone will pick this guy up.
