I can't say I'm thrilled about it. I don't see the sense in signing a QB with bad knees to play on a team that needs a mobile QB.

I don't know any details of his contract yet, but somehow, I'm sure I won't like it.

I am surprised he went to the Raiders where he'll have competition from McCown and Russell when he gets into camp.

I'd say this is a decent move for the Raiders. It has its ups and downs. Ups cuz the #1 pick learns under a veteran who has played in some instances, brilliantly. - bad because he also learns the bad habits the veteran has acquired.

Russell wasn't/ isn't going to start the season, no matter what anyone may think. He isn't ready to start in the NFL. It will be between McCown and Pep to see who starts the season.

I would disagree. Teams pay big money for big talent, and therefore, are expecting big results. Reggie Bush did fairly avergae in his rookie season, and at times, above average. Vince Young is another top pick who started in his rookie season. I'd be surprised if the Raiders don't give him a shot if he proves himself.

I think the Raiders are wasting there time trying to pick this guy up. He's washed up in my books.

Did you forget Al Davis owns and runs the Raiders?

If Al says play Russell,Russell will play,it's that simple.

Very True. Even though Shell ain't there anymore.

He can teach Russel a thing or two, they both got cannon arms. Will be interesting to see who's behind center for the raiders in week 1
