    I thought it would be funny. Actually I still think so.

    He can be DT next to Haynesworth while the Williams' sit for 4

    This. How did this topic get to be about Jackson anyways? the two QBs have zero similarities.
    Because there are a number of PPO posters who feel they must turn every thread about a QB into a discussion about Tarvaris or Favre.

    True, but I think it goes deeper than that. Imagine a lonely soul who so desperately wants to be noticed, crying out in the only way they know how. If they can't make people like them, they'll make people hate them... at least this dark soul is noticed.

    Wait... What? Oh yeah...

    Russell sucks... The Raiders suck. To say anything more on these two entities is a waste of time and effort.

    True...it wasn't really his fault....after all, look at the O line, the receivers, the backs...Russell never really had a chance to develop. After all, it takes 2-3 years to develop a QB, so the clock shouldn't have even begun ticking on him. They need to give him another chance...

    See how stupid it sounds when you apply it elsewhere?

    It sure does, however, as with most things, there is another side to it.

    This side is a side that shows a kid who got his big payday, got lazy and basically quit trying to get better.

    Doesn't matter how good or how bad his OL was/is or if his WR can get off the line cause the cat got his payday.

    TJ, on the other hand (other side) continues to work hard and continues to improve.
    I mostly agree with this. Russell did quit. He sort of highlights the argument that NFL rookies shouldn't get huge contracts.

    Wonder who will sign him? You know someone will...

    I hope us!! He has a huge arm and can throw the deep ball way better than the noodle. He is mobile and is young and can learn to read defenses. We can roll him out and then our O would be scary; he could run or throw. He just needs to improve a little bit each year and we will have our franchise QB. Doesn't that sound just wonderful;I wish we ahd soemone like that!! B)

    There s only two things stopping you - fear and common sense!! The Truth you CAN"T HANDLE THE TRUTH!!!!!!!!
