But to be real he is just another in a long line of poor personal decisions that the Raiders have made in the last ten years.





"JahMahcus Russell is a great playuh. GET OVAH IT!!!"


There's the reason we made so many bad moves. Notice how much things have changed in a year and a half?? LOL.


One of the lowest points in Raiders history right there that day,Al was so incredibly out of his element at this stage of his life that it was really sad to see the guy defend his decisions after being such a genius years earlier.

It sucks how much he overstayed his welcome. He did some great things and I love the desire he had but he just went about it the very, very, very wrong way.

Raiders best and worst draft picks of all time on NFL.com. No surprise #2 is on there.

Does anybody here remember BayArea07(seven)? Remember how he said that we would win (with JR) again some sunny day? BA! BA! What has become of you? Does anybody else in here....feel the way I do?

Blaming Al Davis for Jamarcus being a POS. Wowwwww.

Think it would have been any different if he went #3 to Cleveland? Get real.


Once again I never said it's the Raiders fault for JR's problems...It was the Raider's fault for drafting the dude when pretty much everyone else in the top ten that year is an all pro or future hall of famer..


Hind sight is great, eh?

Jamarcus was the top pick in just about every "Experts" mocks, from ex GMs to journalists. No one knew he was going to take the money and run and put in ZERO effort in:

- Weight room
- Tape room
- Learning the playbook

He got his big pay day and plopped his fatness at high end restaurants 4 times a day.
Drafting him was not our mistake, him having zero accountability as a professional athlete is the root of this titanic failure. There's only 32 starting jobs in the NFL, one of the premiere jobs in THE WORLD, and he decided that did not matter.

New Video, Russell lost nearly 40 pounds since he started training.

He looks good. Looks like he's dropped a lot of weight from when these rumors first started. No matter how much someone has made mistakes in the past, it's good to see people own up to their mistakes and make huge strides to better themselves. Good for him. If he makes it back into the league as a backup, that in and of itself is a huge comeback story.

As an avid Russell hater and one who buried his fat butt at his combine appearance, I am impressed with his effort.

He actually is starting to look like an athlete. As much as I hate the guy,I'm all for second chances.

Hopefully he is doing it for pride and love of the game and not just a paycheck.

Probably the hardest he's ever worked in his life. Too small a sample size. If he continues to put in the work without a job this season, he should get signed next off-season. Can't trust him to keep working when he gets a check.

Just have to put the weight clause poison pill in his contract.

A team could sign him on a 1 year deal and see how he prepares and how serious he takes the #3 job. Low risk, some reward if he could put it together.

I was impressed.

However I was also impressed with him at LSU's pro day in 2007.

If he comes back it should be as a back up. And he should fight for a spot.

On another note was it just me or did it look like he had more velocity that Pryor on those throws?

Velocity was never the problem. I wouldn't doubt at all that he has more velocity than some NFL quarterbacks today on just pure ability. Wasted ability, but nonetheless.

With that said, did anyone see his twitter question-answering event the other day? To me he came off as someone who still cannot accept the fact that he gave ZERO effort and still hasn't blamed himself for his issues on or off the field. It was just like "Well, don't believe everything you hear," and "Sometimes things just don't work out." I wouldn't anticipate he's doing this for the love of the game, to say the least.





I'd give anything to see him suit up for an AFC West rival, though....

imagine if RM gave him a shot next year lol... he has no affiliation to his prior time here.. so id say we are just as probable as any other team.

even from his perspective we are a completely different organization, so hed be starting fresh.. except for the fans lol

im not a fan of this.. but his first game would be pretty funny to watch how the crowd reacting to him haha

Knowing how much it hurt my team to waste the #1 pick on him, I could care less about him for that. If he never comes back, I hate what he did to hurt the Raiders. If he comes back and makes the HOF I hate that it wasn't the Raiders that got anything out of it. No matter how you slice it, as a Raider fan he can never redeem himself to me. As a football fan, it would be a nice story. But I am a much bigger Raider fan than I am a football fan.

The better he does the more I hate him, no matter the result.
