Watching JaMarcus Russell throw for the Raiders last night further solidified my opinion that he is not an NFL quarterback. If his first read is open he will hit him with his strong arm, but if not...? He panics and makes poor decisions in the pocket. Even though he was 6 for 9 last night, it seemed like the passing "gameplan" was to build his confidence or mask his flaws with easy passes.
Al Davis found the only coach in the NFL, Tom Cable, willing to ruin his reputation by sticking with Russell no matter what. Davis has ruined this franchise with his stubbornness and long dead football instincts. Charger fans can rest easy as long as these two inept folks head Raider Nation.
