Default Re: Culpepper heading to Raiders for workout

Russel is no where near NFL ready, despite what all the talking heads say. He needs some seasoning, and he isn't as mobile as Vince Young so he can't depend on his athleticism to get him out of trouble and make up the gap like Young did.

It'll be interesting to see what Culpepper can do. He's obviously very confident in his ability, given his refusal to sign anything but a 1 year deal.

He'll get to play, but it won't be on opening day. If he ever gets to camp, I would expect to see him no sooner than week 6. Just because he went #1 and will be getting paid a king's ranson, doesn't mean he is ready to play in the NFL. With McCown and Culpepper on the team, there is no reason or justification for throwing him out there too soon... especially without seeing if the O line can protect the QB yet.

If Al says play Russell,Russell will play,it's that simple.
True, but Al hates rookie QB's. I'm sure it just killed him to draft Russell, especially after the Marinovich fiasco.

I don't think you guys will see him play till week 10. That is, if you're not out of the playoff race by then. It may be earlier.

You could be right. I wouldn't mind if he sat the whole season. Playoff race? Thats funny! Maybe next year, but I seriously doubt we will be viaing for the playoffs this year. If we can even finish at .500, I'll be very happy with this season.

The Raiders will never be in the playoff race this year, but thats no reason to throw Russel to the wolves. Week 10 seems like a nice round number unless one of the other guys surprise like Drew Brees did in San Diego.
