It says he's going to be the backup ... but at least now when they figure out Russell is going to suck again this season, they have someone they can reasonably put in and who might actually win a few games.

Actually, if Russell gets sidelined with a nagging injury, that might be the best chance they have at a playoff spot (LOL, Raiders in playoffs), if only because they play in such a weak-ass division. Being able to throw the ball effortlessly 65 yards down the field is not a big help when the receiver is only running a 40-yard route.

Garcia is a very talented QB, but he just can not stay healthy for a full 16 games.

Why he wants to go to the Faiders is beyond me.

At this point in his career I don't see Jeff Garcia mentoring anyone, so the move is more than questionable to me. He won't win the starting job, and his skill set is entirely different from that of JaMarcus Russell's... It just doesn't make any sense.

What I'm hoping, though, is that Garcia does indeed decide to help the youngster as much as possible despite wanting to play himself. Russell actually looked very good at times last year but needs a lot more polishing. Maybe Garcia will be able to help where a poor coaching staff can't.

Even if he did get the starting job I don't think he will improve that team much. They have alot of holes to fill before they can even start to think of being a contender.

i think the raiders are hoping the garcia will help russell out and to be a stop-gap player

Excellent - one less team for Lord Byron to land on.

Browns would have been better off to keep Garcia instead of their new "savior of the day" Charlie Frye. ha ha

Good point. JR looked good toward the end of last season. If he had any WRs who could catch a pass he'd have looked even better.

Russell is a bust. He's like Vince Young in that sheer athleticism can cover a lot of holes in his game, but to be an NFL QB you've got to be able to read defenses, make adjustments, go through progressions, etc, etc...not just run around and throw the football really hard.

I actually think Garcia steals the starting job and JR comes off the bench when "Glass Joe" inevitably gets injured...
