How has Russell blown up in the Raiders' face?... he hasn't even played a whole game!
i'd except the missing training camp excuse if he played that bad in week 6......but this is week 16. that means he's had 14 weeks of practice to digest the playbook. which by the way is a helluva lot longer than roethlisberger had his rookie year,before being thrown into the fire.but anywho, i wasn't actually calling out russell, as much as i was his over inflated contract. his contract is gonna be a pretty descent sized cap hit for a few years. russell got 30 million guaranties....the raiders get none!!!he may be the next manning, he may be the next leaf. i'm just saying teams shouldn't have to morgage thier future to find out.
