LOL ... I wonder if Russell has an incentive clause in his contract for the number of times he barely overthrows a receiver and the ball ends up 30 yards downfield and 20 yards out of bounds. He'd probably be the highest paid player in the NFL if that was the case.

I never thought much of Russell either. When I heard he was weighing in at closer to 300 than 250 the writing was on the wall.

Big Al subscibes to the theory that bad press is still better than no press at all so this isn't very surprising. Garcia is like putting a band aide on an amputated leg.

Garcia throws a nice long ball. That's pretty much all crazy Al looks at when evaluating QB's.

We're talking about hte Raiders, so I'd say it's more like they have an amputated head.

That might be the only way to kill Al......I think he's one of the original Highlanders.

Heres an even better Al analogy.

Remember the Kurt Russell movie Big throuble in little China?

Als the old Chinese dude who was like a thousand years old looking for the green eyed virgin to make him whole again.

I actually think Garcia steals the starting job and JR comes off the bench when "Glass Joe" inevitably gets injured...
i think you right. garcia will be starting around week 5 or 6......get hurt by week 12, then its back to russell.

The best part? The fans will be cheering "Gar-See-Ahhhh" by the end of game 2.

Then, when he starts sucking (Seriously, what is he going to do? The team is NOT good.), they'll start clamoring for Russell again.

Hmmm...maybe it's all a ploy to take the heat off JaMarcus. The fans scream for Garcia, get their wish, he sucks, and they decide it's not JR's fault.

Only problem is that theory requires someone in Oakland's front office to have a brain.

Although you know what, Garcia may be one of the few QBs who could actually do well in spite of what he's got around him in Oakland. He's been on enough shitty teams and spent enough seasons running for his life that I bet he still makes Russell look stupid.

Who knows, they might even win the division by default, since everyone else but the Chargers has decided to take themselves out of the race.

Also, I can't believe they wasted the #1 overall pick on Russell basically because of one bowl game. It's like, no matter how big you are, it doesn't stop linebackers from tackling you. So basically you've got a slow quarterback with a strong arm and no accuracy.
